Apparently things are heating up for Martin Scorsese’s next film, Killers of the Flower Moon, because the film has just picked up another batch of new cast members.
That’s according to a report today from Deadline, which says the upcoming film from the legendary director has added another four to the cast. The new members of the team include Tatanka Means (pictured, far left) (I Know This Much is True), Michael Abbott Jr. (pictured, left) (Loving), Pat Healy (pictured, right) (Bad Education), and Scott Shepherd (pictured, far right) (Bridge of Spies). They will be joining a cast that already includes Leonardo DiCaprio (Titanic), Robert De Niro (The War With Grandpa), Lily Gladstone (Billions), and Jesse Plemons (Antlers).
Killers of the Flower Moon is set in 1920 in Oklahoma and the newly created Federal Bureau of Investigation is investigating murders of wealthy Osage Indians who had been given revenue rights to oil discovered under their lands. The film is based on the non-fiction book written by David Grann.
The original report has a brief bit on which characters each of the new cast will play. Means will be playing a character named John Wren; Abbott is playing Frank Smith; and Healy will be John Burger, another federal agent working with Plemons’s character.
Finally, Shepherd is playing Bryan Burkhart, the “brother of DiCaprio’s Ernest Burkhart”.
The cast continues to fill out for Apple TV+‘s next tentpole feature. It was just last week that the film added another four to the cast. But we’re probably still a ways off before we actually get to watch all these actors in Scorsese’s next big film.
