Based on David Grann’s best-selling book, the Apple TV+ Original film adaptation takes place in 1920s Oklahoma and centers around a string of brutal murders of Osage Nation Native Americans, which later is known as the Reign of Terror. The Osage Nation, who ere the richest people in the world, were killed one by one after oil was discovered on their land. As the murders increased, the newly-created Federal Bureau of Investigation took the case and discovered a conspiracy and one of the deadliest crimes in American history.

Actress Lily Gladstone, who is a descendant of the Blackfeet and New Perce tribes, will play the role of Mollie Burkhart, an Osage Nation member married to Ernest Burkhart, who is the nephew of a local rancher. Leonardo DiCaprio will play Burkhart and Robert De Niro will play his uncle in the movie adaptation.

Martin Scorsese is producing and directing Killers of the Flower Moon for Apple Studios and Imperative Entertainment. Eric Roth is writing the screenplay.
