Shooting Schedule


Just a little over a year ago it was announced that director Martin Scorsese and actor Leonardo DiCaprio planned on teaming up for a fifth time in order to make a movie called The Wolf of Wall Street. These guys always keep themselves busy though, and the script for the film was still being adapted from the memoirs of former day trader Jordan Belfort, so it wasn’t really clear when it would go in front of the camera, if ever.



When Bryan Singer’s first X-Men came out, pretty predictably Wolverine became the breakout character of the film. Wolverine has been the most popular X-Man for decades now, and even though it had some other flaws, since that first film nailed the writing and casting of the Wolverine character so well, it was bound to be a success.
