‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ Cast in WSJ

In theaters next month, the glitzy, audacious blockbuster is based on real-life rogue trader Jordan Belfort memoir of his 1990s pump-and-dump flameout, during which he launched the infamous Stratton Oakmont “boiler room” brokerage, inflicted over $200 million of losses on investors and sunk a 167-foot yacht—all on his way to a federal indictment for securities fraud and money laundering and 22 months in prison. (Belfort is currently working toward building a career as a motivational speaker and paying $110 million back to investors.) The film will be the fifth collaboration between Scorsese and DiCaprio, following Gangs of New York , The Departed , The Aviator and Shutter Island . And by all accounts, filming it was an act of deep mutual trust: their most adult, debauched project to date.
