Actor Leonardo DiCaprio and director Martin Scorsese will be reunited once again with The Wolf of Wall Street.

Leonardo DiCaprio will play Jordan Belfort, who pilfered millions of dollars from investors and was sentenced to 22 months in jail for securities fraud. His chop shop firm, Stratton Oakmont, also served as the inspiration for the 2000 movie Boiler Room.

The project, which is an adaptation of Jordan Belfort's book of the same name, was originally set up at Warner Bros. for Ridley Scott to direct. Now Martin Scorsese is directing the financial drama, which has secured independent financing and could start shooting as early as June.

Martin Scorsese will direct from an adapted script by Boardwalk Empire creator Terence Winter, which follows Belfort's exploits all the way up until he was banned from trading securities for life in 1994.

The Wolf of Wall Street was released December 25th, 2013 and stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Matthew McConaughey, Margot Robbie, Jonah Hill, Cristin Milioti, Jon Bernthal, Ethan Suplee, Jon Favreau. The film is directed by Martin Scorsese.

    @daveactor7, I have the script for Wolf of Wall Street from a friend, and it's pretty good. But it's not Wall Street, buddy. So Stone is in good hands.

    @cupid, I'm not saying it should get deleted, I'm simply saying that comments like that tend to get out of hand, as many of you have seen before from other users, and have been requested to movieweb to have them removed. It's just some friendly warning
