After some stops and starts, it seems that Martin Scorsese’s “The Wolf of Wall Street” is in full “go” mode with his longtime leading man, Leonardo DiCaprio, locked in to star.

According to Deadline, the film has yet to nail down a timeline for when it will shoot and get distribution, but DiCaprio and Scorsese felt that now was the right time to get cracking on the flick. The two have been trying to get it into production since 2007, but they separated to work on their own high-profile projects before deciding to work together again.

At one point, Ridley Scott had been attached to direct the film, but that later shifted back to Scorsese.

The film is based on the tell-all memoir written by Jordan Belfort, a drug-, sex- and alcohol-addicted stockbroker who landed in prison for refusing to cooperate in a 1990s securities fraud case. It’s a steamy story of his fall from a 20-something multimillionaire to a 30-something federal convict banned from the securities business for life. The film would focus on Belfort’s relationship with an FBI agent and his attempt to make him into an informant.
