Any time Martin Scorsese begins production on a new film, it’s worth paying attention to, especially when that project involves frequent collaborator Leonardo DiCaprio. The duo’s forthcoming The Wolf of Wall Street has only been filming for a few weeks now, but today we’ve got set photos featuring Leo’s character, a New York stockbroker who refuses to succumb to Wall Street-based corruption.

Given the money mogul nature of the role, we wouldn’t expect anything less than DiCaprio sporting a slick-backed hairdo and a neatly pressed suit (of course, he also sports those things on a daily basis). In the photos snapped from The Wolf of Wall Street‘s set, we see DiCaprio hailing a cab and looking extremely concerned.

That constant over-the-shoulder looks might have something to do with his character laundering $200 million from the same folks who wanted him to back a mob-based corruption. It’s somewhat familiar territory for director Martin Scorsese (Goodfellas, Casino, The Departed), but this film puts an interesting spin on it.

The Wolf of Wall Street uses the memoir of Jordan Belfort as its basis, with DiCaprio playing the author. Belfort was a major player on Wall Street – his firm served as the basis for the Vin Diesel film The Boiler Room - and went on to commit many of the crimes that will take place over the course of the Scorsese’s film.

Since teaming up with Scorsese for 2002′s Gangs of New York, “Marty and Leo” have made four feature films together – most of them critically acclaimed, and some of them – like 2006′s The Departed - received Academy Awards. Their last collaboration, Shutter Island (2011), was the duo’s first collaboration since Departed, but now it appears they’re getting the band back together.

Joining DiCaprio for The Wolf of Wall Street will be Jonah Hill, Matthew McConaughey, Margot Robbie, Cristin Milioti, and Oscar winner Jean Dujardin in one of his first English-speaking roles.

The Wolf of Wall Street will hit theaters in 2013.

    Correction there

  4. And putting Jonah Hill in this movie is the biggest joke ever, he’s a funny actor but he can’t do serious roles. It always looks like at one point he’s going to break out in laughter of pull of something incredibly ridiculous. I gues the acting budget was getting low.

    • Moneyball was a good start for him, that performance was quite good. Nabbed a nomination for Best Supporting Actor at the Oscars as well. I think he is capable of more than just humorous roles.

      • Thank you give the guy a chance…Marty wouldn’t just work with anybody so I trust his casting choice.

  5. Ugh get a tailor that suit makes him look 20 lbs heavier

    • Dude you do know the movies is going to be set in the 90′s …I must admit growing up in that particular era oversize clothes and bad haircuts were cool.

  6. I was reading this and it was sounding good. Then I saw Jonah Hill… no thanks, I’ll pass.

  7. “a New York stockbroker who __refuses__ to succumb to Wall Street-based corruption.”

    What? Cocaine/Hookers/Cheating/Lying – not corrupt enough?

  8. That suit is swimming on him! Not a good look.

  9. I am a very big Leonardo fan, but I have to say that he should to be really thinner! Since he play-acted the J. Edger Hoofer, then he had to be fatter (in 2011), since then, He did not sadly thinner. If he is thinner and with blonde hair and of course without the ugly beard, he looks very beautiful! I hope very much that he will be again thinner and has blonde hair, and without ugly beard, so he’s my dream man! Of course I have to say that he is the best Hollywood actor of all time and my opinion is that it is not fair because he never won a Oscar! Sometimes I think that he has won many Oscars, but there are really someone jealous of him and did not want to give him the Oscar in his hand, then the Oscar was given to somebody else. I believe it, because he is a very talented actor and really highly Professional! I love him definitely very much, but as I said, please Leo get thinner again, without a beard and your beautiful blonde hair!
