Some articles that give more info about real life case .....also have thought of WHO would be PERFECT choice for FBI agent who befriends Belfort = Robert DeNiro !

The Wolf of Wall Street is the story of Belfort, a New York stockbroker who, after refusing to turn informant for the FBI, serves 20 months in prison



******************************

Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio are set to team up again.

The pair will be reunited after their 'The Departed' Oscar success on new film 'The Wolf of Wall Street'.

DiCaprio will play Jordan Belfort, in the true-life story of a corrupt Wall Street stockbroker sentenced to four years in prison and fined $110 million before turning government witness.

The film will be adapted from Belfort's autobiography, who is still $75 million in debt.

The Hollywood pair worked together on gangster film 'The Departed', which earned Scorsese the 2006 Academy Award for Best Director.

They also collaborated on box office hits 'The Aviator' and 'Gangs Of New York'.

It is unclear when production will begin as both Scorsese and DiCaprio have numerous projects already lined up.

DiCaprio will spend the summer shooting 'Revolutionary Road' with Kate Winslet.

Scorsese is directing a documentary spanning the career of The Rolling Stones and an adaptation of children's book 'The Invention of Hugo Cabret'.

Scorsese and DiCaprio are also due to work together on biopic 'The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt'

******************************************


MARTIN Scorsese wants to team up with Leonardo DiCaprio to film the story of one of Wall Street's most notorious swindlers. Variety reports Scorsese hopes to direct "Wolf of Wall Street," with DiCaprio playing Jordan Belfort, a penny stock trader whose Stratton Oakmont group pulled off "pump and dump" schemes, in which fast-talking "boilerroom" brokers ran up the prices of shares with fraudulent phone pitches.

Who is this the guy who creates the big scene where he eats a goldfish? If Scorsese really had talks with Michael Fassbender about working together I'd say that would be a solid part for him.

Thanks!

Fassbender could work. As we know in Scorsese films he will often cast actors that fit the part emotionally even if they don't work physically. Joe Pesci in Goodfellas for one. And it's not like DiCaprio looks like Howard Hughes or Jordan Belfort (but that's business).

Haha, maybe Steve Zahn is the perfect Danny!

And solely on physical appearance I'd say Hugh Jackman OR Hugh Laurie would be the perfect Jordan.

As for Nadine, as long as they don't go with Carey Mulligan (who I'm overexposed too) I'll be happy. If Hunger Games 2 didn't get in the way of production I'd say Jennifer Lawrence fits the part to a T.

Hugh Laurie crossed with Matthew Lillard. :razz:

It's funny, in the script Jordan always makes fun of Danny's white teeth. Yet in that pic, Jordan's the one with the choppers.

This clip includes wedding video of Jordan and Nadine.

Patricia Clarkson - Aunt Patricia
Robert De Niro - Joe Fahmighetti
Nellie Sciutto - Mona Axelrod
Edward Norton - FBI Special Agent Gregory Coleman

This clip includes an interview with Coleman.

From the Australian Herald Sun - November 07, 2011

THE Wolf of Wall Street Jordan Belfort was lurking in Melbourne this week before meeting with Leo DiCaprio.

The fast talking former trader who ended up in jail, revealed he was Down Under to discuss the coming movie based on his 2008 memoir, starring DiCaprio as Belfort and directed by Martin Scorsese.

"Leo flew back to the States and I am meeting him when he gets back," Belfort said.

"He is almost done with The Great Gatsby and then my movie is next and to go into production early next year. Leo and Brad Pitt were in a bidding war and it was going up and up and up and I sold it to Leo because he was able to get Scorsese involved."

Based on his salacious autobiography, Belfort revealed DiCaprio's former girlfriend Blake Lively was tipped to play his now ex wife "The Duchess" in the movie.

"I don't think that is happening any more, but I heard rumblings they might get Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, the British actress who would be the right fit."

I don't even know who that is. But based on her performance in The Town, I'd say Blake Lively would also be a good choice for Nadine.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was in Transformers 3. Further elaboration shouldn't be necessary.

What about someone like Rooney Mara for that part? Haven't read the screenplay yet, so I don't really know if she fits. What about Scarlett Johansson? Maybe Evan Rachel Wood?

Rooney Mara is beautiful, but the beautiful that Jordan Belfort describes is obviously a shiksa. Google it if it helps. :razz:

I wrote on IMDb earlier that if you're casting Ginger in Casino in 2012, who would you choose? That's Nadine.

Personally, I'd like Charlize Theron just for the twisted panties and heels babytalk teasing scene.

Though technically, Nadine is a "petite" model (and Miller Lite girl).

Rooney Mara is out. She's playing the lead in Steven Soderbergh's "The Bitter Pill" (or "Side Effects"... it's changed it's name before) & is in one of Terrence Malick's two 2012 features.

For Nadine I'd say Rachel McAdams could possibly be a good fit. I'm not sure about Blake Lively's talent as an actress but if she has the personality to fit the part I'd say "go for it". Though who knows, this will be part that every young starlet will go after. Throw Scarlett Johansson into the search (though I think she'd be wrong for the part)

Damn, I would like to see Mara in a Scorsese picture. I'm not so sure about McAdams - I thought she looked great in Midnight in Paris, but normally I think she looks like skin and bones. Just look at this picture: http://www.imdb.com/media/rm3797201152/nm1046097

Amber Heard or Blake Lively might work, but I'm not so sure about their acting skills...
