Well, if Martin Scorsese is looking to throw off any expectations people might have about his upcoming "The Wolf Of Street," he's doing a pretty good job. It's been a bit of an odd bunch assembled for the movie thus far, but apparently, we ain't seen nothing yet.

Rob Reiner will make his first big screen appearance in nearly a decade (he last appeared in "Alex & Emma" which he also directed) playing Leonardo DiCaprio's father Max in the film. Uh, okay then. While the film, penned by Terence Winter, tells the true story of Jordan Belfort, a wheeling and dealing New York stockbroker who sees his career and personal life fall into shambles thanks to sex, drugs and alcohol, but is this going to be a more lighthearted movie than we previously thought? With Reiner joined by guys like Jonah Hill and Jean Dujardin, we're beginning to wonder...

Guess we'll soon find out, and maybe Reiner is going to go all serious on us. Jon Bernthal, Cristin Milioti and Margot Robbie round out the cast for the film, which starts shooting later this summer. [Deadline]
