After months of murmurings, rumours, gossip and hearsay, it's been confirmed that Martin Scorsese and Leonardo "The Dad Bod Daddy" DiCaprio are to work together again.

Rejoice, mortals.

Potentially their sixth collaborative project - if all goes according to plan - the news was revealed to Variety by Scorsese's longtime production designer Dante Ferretti, who confirmed the director was adapting the snappily-titled Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI for the big screen as soon as he finishes filming his latest gangster epic, The Irishman.

Originally a true-crime thriller written by David Grann, Killers of the Flower Moon tells the story of the Osage Indian nation, who discovered vast amounts of oil beneath their land in the 1920s - instantly making them amongst the richest people in the world - before being subjected to a string of mysterious murders at the hands of jealous outsiders.

Things got so bad that the federal government stepped in (the F.B.I part), while a young J. Edgar Hoover also made a name for himself as the lead of the investigation.

In the interview Ferretti said that, "the whole 1920s world of the Indians who lived there needs to be reconstructed" for Flower Moon, adding that he expects to "start preparing this film in September, because Scorsese will shoot it immediately after finishing The Irishman."

Hopefully it's all smooth sailing for Martin after finally convincing Joe Pesci to join the film's cast.
