Martin Scorsese goes to Wall Street

After teasing us with the possibilities of “Sinatra” (but who would play the title role?) or the Elizabeth Taylor/Richard Burton love story (but who would play the title roles?), or “The Snowman” (oh, never mind), Martin Scorsese has finally announced his next directing project: “The Wolf of Wall Street,” based on stockbroker Jordan Belfort’s memoir about his hard-partying ways before being indicted and imprisoned for security fraud and money laundering in 1998. Leonardo DiCaprio, natch, will play Belfort, in what will be his fifth collaboration with Scorsese (following “Gangs of New York,” “The Aviator,” “The Departed,” and “Shutter Island”). Filming will begin in August. Me, I’d rather see any of the three other projects instead (I think Scorsese might be just right for Jo Nesbo), but time will tell.
