Leonardo DiCaprio Argued with 'Killers of the Flower Moon' Screenwriter Eric Roth, He Confirms

Screenwriter Eric Roth just confirmed that he and star Leonardo DiCaprio got into some arguments over Killers of the Flower Moon.

Eric is writing the script and Leonardo is starring in the film!

“I spent four or five years on this book, ‘Killers of the Flower Moon,’ which everybody should read. It’s a wonderful book,” Eric told IndieWire. “My screenplay I think was accurate to the book. It’s the story of Osage Indians, 1921, the poorest people in America who discover oil in this terrible land in Oklahoma where they’ve been driven to. Then every killer in America comes to kill 184 of them for their money, but this really heroic guy comes in [to help].”

He added, “That’s supposed to start filming in March once the Covid clears out, and it’s Martin Scorsese. They’ll be continuing rewrites with that. Leonardo [DiCaprio] wanted some things changed that we argued about. He won half of [the arguments]. I won half of them. So that’s happening.”

Meanwhile, find out who Leonardo just spent a day at the beach with!
