Leonardo DiCaprio stars as Jordan Belfort, who made millions as a fraudulent stockbroker out of Long Island. The story follows his meteoric rise and hard-partying lifestyle, before he was eventually caught and sentenced to 20 months in jail for securities fraud.
Martin Scorsese is directing from a screenplay by Terence Winter (Boardwalk Empire), adapted from Belfort's autobiography. The story also served as a primary inspiration for the 2000 cult classic Boiler Room.
Production is scheduled to begin this August in New York City.
