I don’t think anyone doubted that the new Martin Scorsese/Leonardo DiCaprio wouldn’t come out during the thick of the Oscar season next year, but we’ve got a bit more of a solid confirmation now with the announcement that Paramount will be distributing ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ in 2013. What little we’ve got on it doesn’t necessary suggest that it’ll be a clear and easy sell for the Academy, but its folly to bet against this pairing now. After the jump you can get a quick refresher on what the flick is about, but stay tuned for lots more on this one, as it’s got over a year to prep us for its release. Read on below for a bit more on Marty’s latest collaboration with Leo…
Here’s what IMDb has to say on the plot:
A New York stockbroker refuses to cooperate in a large securities fraud case involving corruption on Wall Street, corporate banking world and mob infiltration.
