The Wolf of Wall Street, Martin Scorsese’s latest project and likely a key part of the 2013 Oscar race, has been scheduled for a November release.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film will hit theaters on Nov. 15, just in time for awards season. The film is a co-production from Paramount and Red Granite Pictures.
The Wolf of Wall Street will be Scorsese’s follow-up to 2011’s Hugo and is the latest collaboration with Leonardo DiCaprio. The actor-director team last worked together on 2010’s Shutter Island.
DiCaprio stars as Jordan Belfort, whose memoir provides the basis for Terence Winter’s script. Belfort chronicled the risk-taking, high-stakes life of Wall Street in his bestselling book. Throw in a tumultuous personal life and drug addiction and you have a role that might finally earn DiCaprio Oscar attention.
Paramount’s announcement was one of a cluster of moves for the studios. The Hobbit: There And Back Again was pushed to December 2014, while Universal shuffled around several important 2013 releases. Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington’s 2 Guns will now be released on Aug. 2 and Kick-Ass 2 is slated for Aug. 16.
