Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt And George Clooney In Bidding War Over The Same Film
Some of the biggest names in Hollywood are keen to get their hands on one film.
The Tracking Board is reporting that several A-list producers, namely Brad Pitt, George Clooney and Leonardo DiCaprio, are all fighting over Killers Of The Flower Moon.
The book isn't set for publication until 2017, written by New York Times staff writer David Grann - but the rights for the film adaption are still set to become the hottest ticket of the year.
The non-fiction book "chronicles the real-life 1920s mystery surrounding the suspicious deaths of several Osage Indians, who were at the time among the richest people on the planet" - TTB reports.
"The story follows the twists and turns of the investigation that eventually became the first major case solved by J. Edgar Hoover’s brand new FBI."
DiCaprio played Hoover in the 2011 film J. Edgar.
Other names in the mix for the film include Star Wars producer Kathleen Kennedy and X-Men's Brett Ratner.
