DiCaprio and Scorsese shooting their sixth movie

The Hollywood tandem that always guarantees a great movie - Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese will collaborate again on the adaptation of the novel "The Bet: A Story of Shipwreck, Mutiny, and Murder".

The curiosity is that the novel, written by David Grann, will be published only in the spring of next year, and as the Hollywood Reporter reports, the rights to this work were bought by Apple Original Films.

The novel takes place in the 1700s and describes the titular British naval ship and its crew. After a Spanish treasure hunting mission goes awry, the "Vager" is shipwrecked near a remote island off the coast of Patagonia.

Anarchy and brutal, almost animalistic violence occur among the survivors. When those who remained after six months returned to civilization, they found themselves on opposing sides of a court process of enormous proportions, full of accusations of murder and treason, in order to discover what really happened during the sailor's stay in the wilderness.

This is the sixth film on which DiCaprio and Scorsese have worked together. So far, they have filmed the productions "The Aviator", "Gangs of New York", "Double Game", "Shutter Island" and "The Wolf of Wall Street“.

"The Wolf of Wall Street" and "Catch Me If You Can" are just some of the incredible films in the rich filmography of Leonardo DiCaprio. However, there's one movie he made that you've probably never heard of because the actor spent more than 20 years trying to prevent it from ever seeing the light of day.

"Don's Plum" is considered the worst film in the acclaimed Hollywood career of this forty-seven-year-old actor. The improvised black-and-white indie film tells the story of a group of 20-somethings who gather every Saturday night at a restaurant in Los Angeles to discuss the mishaps in their lives.

Starring Kevin Connolly and Tobey Maguire, the film was shot over a few days between 1995 and 1996, a year before DiCaprio became a global star thanks to his role in ‘Titanic’. But interestingly, the film has been banned from showing in America and Canada, according to the New York Post.
