We've known for a while now that 2013 would deliver a new movie from Martin Scorsese, but for the longest time when haven't known anything more specific than that. For the last few months the Oscar winning filmmaker has been working on The Wolf of Wall Street, an adaptation of the book by Jordan Belfort with an all star cast including Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, Jon Bernthal, Jean Dujardin, Rob Reiner, Kyle Chandler, Jon Favreau Margot Robbie, Cristin Milioti, P.J. Byrne, Ethan Suplee, and Matthew McConaughey. But get ready Scorsese fans: you can finally start an official countdown.
The Hollywood Reporter has found out that Paramount will be releasing The Wolf of Wall Street on November 15th, placing it right in the heart of awards season. The date is actually an exceptionally busy one, and a surprising choice given that the date already belongs to Ridley Scott's The Counselor and Bill Condon's The Fifth Estate, two films that will likely share the same target demographic and split ticket sales. Also set to be released is the boxing comedy Grudge Match starring Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone.
The Wolf of Wall Street is Scorsese's first film since Hugo and will have DiCaprio playing Belfort, a New York stockbrocker who lived the highlife back in the 1980s only to see everything torn to shreds by accusations of fraud. Terence Winter, who created the hit HBO series Boardwalk Empire (a show produced by Scorsese), adapted the screenplay.
