Hollywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio has teamed up with director Martin Scorsese again for another film.

He wore a blue tee, jeans, and neon-colored sneakers, completing his look with a camo baseball cap, shades, and a gold necklace.

Back in April, we reported that Martin Scorsese, who is known for having collaborated with Robert De Niro and Leonardo DiCaprio on multiple different project, could be teaming up with both actors for a film adaptation of David Grann's "Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the Federal Bureau of Investigation", which Imperative Entertainment won the rights to for $5 million a year ago. Scorsese plans to make that his next project after he's done with "The Irishman".

According to Variety, Scorsese's longtime production designer, Dante Ferretti, said Scorsese hopes to start shooting Flower Moon in the spring of next year.

An Iranian origin, Mirzakhani was bestowed with this award in 2014 for her work on complex geometry and dynamical systems. In a post on Instagram, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif offered his condolences over Mirzakhani's death.

The true story, which is set in the 1920s, follows the murders of people belonging to the Osage Nation in Oklahoma following the discovery of oil in the area.

Imperative has the rights to this movie which cost a reported $5 million to get, and the script is being now looked over by Eric Roth of Forrest Gump and Benjamin Button fame. A draft for a script was reportedly written by Oscar-winning Forrest Gump scribe Eric Roth.

This will be the sixth time DiCaprio will star in a Scorsese movie. It would be Scorsese's next project after The Irishman, which begins filming in early September with Al Pacino, DeNiro, and Joe Pesci.

And right alongside him for the venture will be Leonardo DiCaprio, the pair of them having already worked on hits like Shutter Island, The Aviator and The Wolf of Wall Street.
