Movie News: The Artist Star to Join New Scorsese/DiCaprio Film

June 15, 2012

Despite the fact that they were Oscar rivals earlier this year, it was announced this week that Academy-Award winner Jean Dujardin, who starred in The Artist, will team up with Hugo director Martin Scorsese in the upcoming drama, The Wolf of Wall Street.

Based on the memoirs of trader Jordan Belfort, who in the 80s and 90s played as fast and loose with drugs and women as he did other people’s money, The Wolf of Wall Street will star Leonardo DiCaprio as Belfort, with Dujardin as his Swiss money-laundering cohort.

The film will also feature Jonah Hill as Belfort’s close friend and Friday Night LightsKyle Chandler as an FBI agent looking to bring his empire down.
