Some new images from behind the scenes of director Martin Scorsese’s new film The Wolf of Wall Street have landed online.  Based on the memoir of Jordan Belfort, the stranger-than-fiction film stars Leonardo DiCaprio as a hard-partying, drug-addicted stockbroker who was indicted in 1998 for security fraud and money laundering and served a 22-month federal prison stretch.  Scorsese is tackling a darkly comic tone for the pic, which chronicles the atmosphere of excess that populated the 1990s Wall Street world.  These images provide a neat glimpse at the filmmaker’s process, and are accompanied by a thoroughly entertaining profile of the pic that includes comments from DiCaprio, Scorsese, and co-star Jonah Hill about the film’s explicit depiction of everything from drug trips to orgies on a 747 plane.

Hit the jump to see what DiCaprio had to say about his research process for the film and to get a look at the images.  The pic also stars Jonah HillKyle ChandlerMatthew McConaugheyJean DujardinMargot RobbieJon Bernthal, and Rob Reiner.  The Wolf of Wall Street opens on November 15th.

Speaking with Vulture as part of a lengthy (and fascinating) profile, DiCaprio said that he developed a pretty close relationship with his real-life counterpart:

DiCaprio spent weeks with Belfort. “I wanted a close relationship with him so that I could weave intimate details into the movie,” he says, “things that weren’t in the book. I was kind of the middleman between him and Marty, and I would bring pages of notes from my meetings with Jordan—things like this insane orgy on a 747 going to Vegas, chimpanzees in diapers that would skate through the Stratton offices, very intimate stuff about his relationships with women—and Marty was game to try everything. His approach was essentially to put everything onscreen and see what we responded to. It was old-school, really independent filmmaking on a larger scale.”
