Most of the movie-world is buzzing about Martin Scorsese's new movie "The Irishman," starring Robert De Niro and Al Pacino, but it's his next movie, "Killers of the Flower Moon," set in Oklahoma and filming in the state, that has the attention of locals.
That's especially true in light of recent casting calls asking for Osage Nation members and other Native Americans to try out, showing what appears to be a dedication to authenticity on the part of filmmakers.
That's all part of the film's pre-production, which Scorsese's team said would start in November. They're on schedule, and if it stays that way, they have said filming is expected to take place in spring and summer of 2020.
You can see "The Irishman" exclusively at Circle Cinema beginning Friday, Nov. 22 (and on Netflix on Nov. 27), but here's what we know so far about Scorsese's Oklahoma movie.

The Oklahoma Film and Music Office officially confirmed on Wednesday that “Killers of the Flower Moon” is set to film in Oklahoma this year — and that this major motion picture will have a major impact on the state economy.
According to a new interview with a French publication, Scorsese talked of "Killers of the Flower Moon" starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert De Niro and "Native American actors."
The winner would spend a day on the movie's set with DiCaprio, his co-star Robert De Niro and the director, Martin Scorsese, and attend the film's premiere as well.
