Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese are reuniting for their seventh film together — an adaptation of David Grann’s nonfiction book, The Wager: A Tale of Shipwreck, Mutiny, and Murder.

According to reports, Apple Original Films won the rights to the book and will have Scorsese as director and DiCaprio as the lead. Dan Friedkin and Bradley Thomas of Imperative Entertainment, Scorsese for Sikelia Productions and DiCaprio and Jennifer Davisson for their Appian Way Productions will produce, while Richard Plepler of Eden Productions will executive produce.

The Wager is set in the 1740s and follows the story of 30 men, who are the surviving crew of a British ship, as they land on the coast of Brazil after their ship crashes. Another ship lands on the coast of Chile six months later, and the sailors accuse those on the other ship of mutiny. The British Admiralty attempts to straighten the story and find the facts with a trial that aims to figure out what exactly happened on the island, and they hear a story of how they struggled “to survive one of the most extreme climates on the planet, but also battling their own human natures.”

The Wager will follow Killers of the Flower Moon, which will release in 2023.
