Scorsese, DiCaprio And De Niro Could Star Together For The First Time
It's literally only just been published, but when it was released, David Grann's: Killers Of The Flower Moon: The Osage Murders And The Birth Of The FBI, sparked huge interest and a bidding war from film makers for its production.
Brad Pitt and George Clooney were among those involved, but Imperative Entertainment eventually won the battle, with a bid of $5m.
And now, Deadline are reporting that the ears of Martin Scorsese, Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro have been well and truly pricked - and it could see all three of them join forces together for the first time.
(The only slight downside of this, is that nobody involved has yet commented on the news.)
The book tells the true crime story about the multiple murders of members of the Osage Indian tribe in Oklahoma that occurred after they found oil on their land.

The book, according to Penguin publishers, was 'based on years of research and startling new evidence', with each part of the investigation revealing 'a series of sinister secrets and reversals'.
Scorsese continues to surprise us this year with his new move, The Irishman, set to debut on Netflix. The movie will see Scorsese time up with De Niro for the ninth time and is based around real-life mobster Frank 'The Irishman' Sheeran.
And talking of mobsters, Goodfella's Tommy DeVito, Joe Pesci, is also set to star in The Irishman. Just like the Scorsese, DiCaprio, De Niro debut, Pesci is also yet to work with the first two aforementioned actors.
As Scorsese looks set to ramp up his classics this year, we await with baited breath.
