TULSA, Okla. — Two of Hollywood's biggest names recently made a stop in the Sooner State.

Actor Leonardo DiCaprio and director Martin Scorsese were in Oklahoma this week to meet with Osage cultural leaders.

According to Osage News, they met Monday evening at Woolaroc in Bartlesville, Okla. to talk about the upcoming movie "Killers of the Flower Moon."

The movie is based on David Grann's "Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI." The book investigates the murder of wealthy Osage people in the 1920s over oil deposits in Osage County. The murder plot was tied to a cattleman later convicted in the crimes.

The adaptation is starring Academy Award winners Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert DeNiro.

Filming stalled last year because of the pandemic, but it's supposed to pick back up soon in Tulsa, Bartlesville and Osage County. A virtual casting call is underway for extras.
