Just a few days ago we detailed Lily Gladstone, who plays a major role in Martin Scorsese’s latest film, Killers of the Flower Moon. Today an actor with a Scorsese connection starred in the film. Yes, Jesse Plemons, who played a supporting role in The Irishman, will star in this next flick. He will be alongside Gladstone, as will Scorsese stalwarts Robert De Niro and Leonardo DiCaprio. Unsurprisingly, this movie is developing pretty impeccably and is a big signal for Apple when it finally hits screens slated to hit screens next year. I can’t wait and I am sure that I am far from being the only one …
Here is part of Deadline’s story:
