Kyle Chandler is joining Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill in director Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street, Deadline reports.
The film, based on Jordan Belfort’s best-selling memoir, features an adapted screenplay by Terence Winter (The Sopranos, Boardwalk Empire) and chronicles Belfort’s (DiCaprio) dramatic rise and fall on Wall Street, along with his hard-partying lifestyle and tumultuous personal life, which included drug and alcohol addiction.
Chandler, best known for “Friday Night Lights” and for a role in last summer’s Super 8, will play Coleman, an FBI Agent tasked with taking Belfort down.
Red Granite principals Riza Aziz and Joey McFarland are producing along with DiCaprio (Appian Way), Scorsese and Emma Koskoff (Sikelia Productions) and Alexandra Milchan (EMJAG Productions). Irwin Winkler and Georgia Kacandes will executive produce.
Production on The Wolf of Wall Street is slated to begin in August in New York.
