With the wondrous “Hugo” behind him now, director Martin Scorsese is looking to head back to chronicling the sort of seedier pastimes that helped make his name, with the upcoming “The Wolf Of Wall Street” now in the works. Based on a true story, the film follows a New York stockbroker who goes on a downward spiral of sex and drugs, and refuses to take part in a large securities fraud case. Scorsese has already lined up top talent like frequent collaborator Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, Jean Dujardin (“The Artist”), Jon Bernthal (“The Walking Dead”) and Kyle Chandler (“Friday Night Lights”), and the film continues to bring out names the way only a new Scorsese project can.

With the wondrous “Hugo” behind him now, director Martin Scorsese is looking to head back to chronicling the sort of seedier pastimes that helped make his name, with the upcoming “The Wolf Of Wall Street” now in the works. Based on a true story, the film follows a New York stockbroker who goes on a downward spiral of sex and drugs, and refuses to take part in a large securities fraud case. Scorsese has already lined up top talent like frequent collaborator Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, Jean Dujardin (“The Artist”), Jon Bernthal (“The Walking Dead”) and Kyle Chandler (“Friday Night Lights”), and the film continues to bring out names the way only a new Scorsese project can.

First being added to the growing cast is Jake Hoffman, son of Dustin Hoffman, who is set to play none other than famous shoe designer Steve Madden. Looks like the well heeled are going to be well heeled (ha). Though Hoffman isn’t the only young up and comer to join the fold, as “Horrible Bosses” funnyman P.J. Byrne will hop in as “Wigwam” Cohen, one of the privileged brokers who happens to spend a lot of quality time with the "wolf" Jordan Belfort (DiCaprio). Then finally, “My Name is Earl” and “Boy Meets World” fans will rejoice to see actor Ethan Supplee join the cast as fellow stock trader Chris Knight, along with “The Guard” actress Katarina Cas -- who will play a character by the name of Caroyln.

That’s a whole lot to add after the recent announcement of Jon Favreau joining the cast, along with the likes of Rob Reiner, Cristin Milioti and Margot Robbie – but this certainly looks like a promising ensemble affair. Filming is set to begin next month in New York, making for what surely is one of our most anticipated movies of next year. [Deadline]
