The Wolf of Wall Street is an upcoming crime drama film directed by Martin Scorsese, based on the memoir of the same name by Jordan Belfort. The screenplay is being written by Terence Winter, and the film stars Leonardo DiCaprio as Belfort, along with other cast members including Jonah Hill, Jean Dujardin, Rob Reiner, Kyle Chandler, and Matthew McConaughey, among others. The Wolf of Wall Street will make a fifth collaboration between Scorsese and DiCaprio.
The film is set to be released in 2013, and will tell the story about a New York stockbroker, played by DiCaprio, who refuses to cooperate in a large securities fraud case involving corruption on Wall Street, the corporate banking world and mob infiltration. The film is currently in post-production.
Filming began on August 8, 2012 in New York. Jonah Hill announced that his first day of shooting was September 4, 2012. It was also reported that filming took place in Closter, New Jersey and Ardsley, New York. Also, film crews were seen down Mini Me's block, scouting their next location to film. In January 2013, additional scenes were shot at a set built in an abandoned office building in Ardsley, New York.
Scorsese's longtime editor Thelma Schoonmaker confirmed that the film would be shot digitally instead of on film. Scorsese, who had been a proponent of shooting on film, shot Hugo digitally because it was being filmed in 3D. The Wolf of Wall Street will be shot and released in digital 2D. Schoonmaker expressed her disappointment with the decision, saying, "It would appear that we've lost the battle. I think Marty just feels it's unfortunately over, and there's been no bigger champion of film than him."
