Filmmaker Martin Scorsese’s upcoming movie Killers of The Flower Moon has a release date. Headlined by a star-studded cast that includes Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert De Niro and Brendan Fraser, the film is set to release in limited theatres in the U.S on October 6, before a wider release on October 20.

Variety also reported that that the Apple Original film will then begin streaming on Apple TV+ at a later date.

Written by Eric Roth, Killers of The Flower Moon is based on David Grann’s 2017 bestseller of the same name. Set in the 1920s Oklahoma, it narrates the Osage Nations murders, in which members of the Native American tribe were murdered one by one after the group became rich off the oil found underneath their land. With the death toll rising, the then newly created FBI had to take up the case to uncover a chilling conspiracy and one of the most monstrous crimes in US history.

DiCaprio, Rick Yorn, Adam Sommer, Marianne Bower, Lisa Frechette, John Atwood, Shea Kammer and Niels Juul have served as executive producers.
