Brendan Fraser will star in the upcoming Apple TV+ crime drama, "Killers of the Flower Moon," directed by Martin Scorsese.




Set in 1920s Oklahoma, "Killers of the Flower Moon" chronicles the serial murder of members of the Osage Nation -- a string of brutal crimes that came to be known as the "Reign of Terror."

According to Deadline, Fraser will play lawyer WS Hamilton. Also starring are Robert De Niro and Leonardo DiCaprio. Jesse Plemons, known for roles in "Friday Night Lights" and "Breaking Bad" was added to the cast in February.

The upcoming film is based on the David Grann book "Killers Of The Flower Moon: The Osage Murders And The Birth Of The FBI." Eric Roth adapted the screenplay.

    Scorsese comes to Apple TV+ with the really big names. Hmmm.

    Glad to see Mr. Fraser getting back to movies.  He has been through a lot of personal adversity.  I'm rooting for him.
