Who Is The Creative Team Behind The Scenes?

Martin Scorsese

Martin Scorsese is directing Killers of the Flower Moon. He’s been nominated for the Academy Award for Best Director nine times, winning once for The Departed. He wrote the screenplay along with Eric Roth, who won the Oscar for his work on Forrest Gump. Scorsese will also collaborate with cinematographer Rodrigo Prieto for the fourth time. The pair’s past works include The Wolf of Wall Street, Silence, and The Irishman. Rodrigo earned Oscar nominations for the latter two films. Robbie Robertson, lead guitarist and songwriter for The Band, composed the score. He’s collaborated with Scorsese seven times before. The creative team also includes production designer Jack Fisk, who is a two-time Academy Award nominee for There Will Be Blood and The RevenantThelma Schoonmaker is reuniting with Scorsese to edit Killers of the Flower Moon.

What’s The Movie About?

Leonardo DiCaprio

Killers of the Flower Moon is based on David Grann‘s 2017 non-fiction book Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI. The film will focuses on the series of murders that took place in the Osage Nation, a Native American tribe, in Oklahoma in the 1920s after oil was discovered on tribal land. The murders, which were masterminded by cattleman William Hale (played by De Niro in the film), attracted the attention of the FBI, who had just recently formed. Scorsese’s movie is expected to give the FBI’s perspective as they investigate the murders.

This is Scorsese’s first Western movie. He talked about the project back in February 2020. “The film is mainly about the Osage, an Indian tribe that was given horrible territory, which they loved because they said to themselves that Whites would never be interested in it,” Scorsese said in an interview. “Then we discovered oil there and, for about 10 years, the Osage became the richest people in the world, per capita. Then, as with the Yukon and the Colorado mining regions, the vultures disembark, the White man, the European arrives, and all was lost. There, the underworld had such control over everything that you were more likely to go to jail for killing a dog than for killing an Indian.”

Some members of the Osage Nation have reacted to Scorsese’s upcoming film. Osage Harrison Shackelford told The Oklahoman that he has mixed feelings about the details of the painful past for the community being brought to life. “I think about it both ways. It was a bad time — a real bad time — for the Osage…and I think this movie is going to bring back a lot of old, bad memories,” he said. “But it’s going to bring back some stuff that needed to be talked about, that needs to be said, that some people know and some people don’t know. And I think it’s going to be good.”

Scorsese visited the Osage Nation in the years leading up to filming. Chief of the Osage Nation Geoffrey Standing Bear was brought onto the film as a leading consultant. He issued a statement when filming started that read, “This is a very strong, lucrative business which directly benefits many Oklahomans, including the Sovereign Nations. It promotes financial opportunities and cultural recognition for all. The funding from the State of Oklahoma along with the efforts of the Osage Nation have proven to be a big draw for this film in particular. We are now seeing the fruits of all of our efforts to bring this great movie production here and now!”

What’s The Budget Of The Movie?

Lily Gladstone

Killers of the Flower Moon has a budget of $200 million. That’s par for the course with a Scorsese film. Paramount had the rights to the movie at first but sold it to Apple, similar to what it did with The Irishman which went to Netflix. A factor in Paramount’s decision to sell to Apple was that Leonardo DiCaprio wanted to play Ernest Buckhart, rather than Tom White who he was originally supposed to star as. Paramount worried the film would become “less commercially viable” (per Indie Wire) due to Leo’s casting change, so they shipped the project off to Apple. Leo indeed got the role of Ernest, while Jesse Plemons was cast to play Tom. Killers of the Flower Moon is going to be a can’t-miss film.

Susan Lucci Recalls Near Fatal Heart Attack Felt ‘Like An Elephant’ On Her Chest (Exclusive)

Susan Lucci reflected on what it was like when she suffered from a heart attack in 2018 in an EXCLUSIVE interview with HollywoodLife at the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women Red Dress Collection Concert on Wednesday, February 1. The actress, 76, said that she wanted to include her “Empower Your Heart” jewelry line as a way of “saying thank you to the American Heart Association,” after her own experience with a heart attack.

The All My Children star revealed that she got tested after learning hearing an interview where a woman said that the symptoms that women experience during a heart attack are different from men’s. “I avoided a near-fatal heart attack,” Susan told HollywoodLife.  “I also was very lucky to have people getting me to the hospital right away.”

Susan opened up about exactly what the symptoms she experienced were, and luckily the doctor was able to operate quickly. “At that hospital, a wonderful, wonderful cardiologist let me know that I had a 90% blockage in my main artery and a 75% blockage in the adjacent,” she said. “I had no idea except that I felt like an elephant pressing on my chest. And he put two stents in that night. And I was released the next day.”

Thankfully, the mother of two was able to recover, but the healthcare providers also told Susan that the heart attack she experienced was a “widowmaker,” and she may not have survived if she didn’t act as quickly as she had. “I was told by the nurses had I not come in, [they were] very sure that I wasn’t going to wake up if I had just gone home,” she revealed.

Susan teamed up with the jewelry brand Tiary for her “Empower Your Heart” line, which will donate 25% of each sale to the American Heart Association’s Life is Why campaign through December 31, 2023. Susan told HL that it was a “dream” to get to raise money for the American Heart Association.

  • Bad Bunny is best known as a Puerto Rican rapper and singer.
  • He is romantically involved with Gabriela Berlingeri.
  • Bad Bunny is nominated for three 2023 Grammy Awards, which air on Feb. 5.

Bad Bunny has been one of the music industry’s rising stars for years now. As the Latin music superstar (whose real name is Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio) gets ready to go to the 2023 Grammy Awards, where he will perform and see if he won any of the three categories he’s nominated in, his longtime girlfriend Gabriela Berlingeri will surely be cheering him on! He is in the running for Album of the Year, Best Música Urbana Album, and Best Pop Solo Performance. The previous Grammy-winner has been dating Gabriela, 28, for the past five years and sometimes shows her off on his Instagram. Despite keeping much of their relationship private, Bad Bunny, 28, and his girlfriend seem so in love with each other.

Find out everything you need to know about Gabriela and Bad Bunny here!

How did Bad Bunny & Gabriela Berlingeri meet?

Bad Bunny clearly has a good sense of humor about his relationship. He quipped that the two “met while sinning,” in a May 2020 Rolling Stone interview. Despite his sultry response, he corrected himself and revealed that he and Gabriela’s first time meeting in 2017 was actually much more low-key. “It was after I sang at a Zion and Lennox concert, here in Puerto Rico. I met her at some restaurant, while I was eating with my parents and my brothers. We started talking and from there, we continued to see each other,” he told the magazine. In more recent years, she’s appeared in his social media, and the pair have even adopted a dog together, as the musician revealed in a TikTok.

What does Gabriela do for a living?

The “Me Porto Bonito” singer’s passion for fashion is well-known, and he definitely shares that love with Gabriela. She owns a jewelry line Diciembre Ventinueve (Translation: December 29), which she started in 2020. Her line is handmade in Puerto Rico, according to the company’s Instagram bio, and she offers a wide array of necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and rings. Aside from her jewelry line, the entrepreneur has also dabbled a bit in modeling, per Bustle. She took the photos for her boyfriend’s Rolling Stone cover story.

She’s sung on a Bad Bunny track

When Bad Bunny dropped his surprise album Las Que No Ibran A Salir in May 2020, the closing track had a surprise guest vocalist. The song featured some contributions from the rapper’s girlfriend, credited simply as “Gabriela.” The pair dueted on “En Casita,” which was a song reflecting on their feelings in quarantine amid the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. She also appeared on the outro to his 2022 track “El Apagón,” per Genius.

Those are not the only time that they’ve worked together musically. When Bad Bunny was working on his collaboration with Jennifer Lopez “Te Gusté,” Gabriela was an important part of the process. “Gabriela recorded references for J. Lo’s vocals,” he told Rolling Stone. 

What has Bad Bunny said about her?

Despite keeping their relationship very private for years, Bad Bunny has opened up a little more about her since they started collaborating. Before going public, he’d shared that he was “in love” in an Entertainment Tonight interview in March 2020. While speaking about their relationship, he revealed that  his sense of humor is very important to their love in a Rolling Stone interview. “I like to make her laugh. I am always playing and always doing something crazy and fun,” he said.

When speaking about their 2022 collaboration, Bad Bunny revealed how important it was to have Gabriela sing it during a New York Times interview. “I wanted someone to sing it out of love, because it’s a sincere message,” he explained.

While the couple seems incredibly happy together, it’s not clear if they’ve discussed the possibility of tying the knot. Bad Bunny opened up about his insecurities about it in a 2020 interview with Entertainment Tonight. “I’m not that married,” he told the outlet. “Maybe it can be that. But I think that weddings and get[ting] married scare me. A lot.”

Who else has he dated?

Given how private Bad Bunny was about his relationship with Gabriela, it’s no surprise that he was also pretty private about his past love Carliz De La Cruz, but it seems like when Bad Bunny is in a relationship, he’s committed for a long time. He and Carliz also dated for five years, per People En Espanol.
