Though Martin Scorsese has been branching out into a number of genres over the past few years—including psychological thrillers (Shutter Island) and family films (Hugo)—he’s returning to the world of black comedy with this month’s The Wolf of Wall Street. The film is based on the memoir of Jordan Belfort and 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. THR has been doing a number of roundtable interviews for this year’s awards contenders, but today they’ve unveiled a treat by way of a 25-minute video interview with Scorsese, DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, and screenwriter Terence Winter about all things Wolf of Wall Street.
The interview is a great watch, as they discuss their first meetings with each other, how Hill won the role, Steven Spielberg showing up on set, the editing process, and Scorsese confirms that (unsurprisingly) we won’t be seeing a longer director’s cut on home video. Hit the jump to watch the interview. The Wolf of Wall Street opens on Christmas Day.
