‘Killers of the Flower Moon’ Cannes Red Carpet Photos – Deadline

Martin Scorsese returns to Cannes this evening with a feature in the Official Selection for the first time in almost four decades.

The pic, Killers Of The Flower Moon, stars the Taxi Driver filmmaker’s regular leading men, Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro. Based on David Grann’s best-selling book and written for the screen by Eric Roth and Martin Scorsese, the pic is set in 1920s Oklahoma and depicts the serial murder of members of the oil-wealthy Osage Nation, a string of brutal crimes that came to be known as the Reign of Terror.

Other guests who attended the event included Lily Gladstone, Tatanka Means, Kirsten Dunst, Jesse Plemons, Cate Blanchette, Tobey Maguire, Salma Hayek, Isabelle Huppert, Lukas Haas, Paul Dano, Anaïs Demoustier, Robbie Williams, Princess Caroline of Monaco, Charlotte Casiraghi, Irina Shayk, Riccardo Tisci, Lorena Rae and Josephine Skriver.

Discussing his interest in Grann’s book in an exclusive interview with Deadline ahead of Cannes, Scorsese said he first responded to the “natural order of things” depicted in the narrative.

“The idea that one could rationalize that if the Osage are not going to be of any use, if they’re going to be phased out anyway, why don’t we just, you know, help them go” he said. “And, ultimately, do we really feel any guilt for that? I don’t mean you and I, but when you’re doing what was being done to the Osage, and if you tend to dehumanize someone.”

The pic is produced by Imperative Entertainment, Sikelia Productions, and Appian Way. Other producers include Dan Friedkin, Bradley Thomas, and Daniel Lupi. Executive producers are DiCaprio, Rick Yorn, Adam Sommer, Marianne Bower, Lisa Frechette, John Atwood, Shea Kammer, and Niels Juul. Jesse Plemons also stars alongside Lily Gladstone and is set to hit the red carpet this eve alongside the wider cast.
