It's been over three years since word first got out about Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio's plan to bring Jordan Belfort's memoir The Wolf of Wall Street to the big screen and, as predicted, we've still got nothing. Having delivered films like Shutter Island and The Departed (among others), the duo's choice to push The Wolf aside is justifiable, but we've waited long enough; it's time the adaptation becomes a reality and it actually looks like that's what's happening, but with Ridley Scott behind the lens.

The book tells the story of Belfort's rise and fall on Wall Street. Belfort kicked off his financial career as a mere "connector," the guy who just gets the business owners on the phone and then must transfer the call to his boss. He may have felt like the lowest of the low at one point, but eventually Belfort grew to run his very own brokerage house, Stratton Oakmont. The only problem? Belfort wasn't exactly a noble businessman. When not committing securities fraud or laundering money, Belfort was busy popping Quaaludes, cheating on his wife and doing everything and anything devious you picture a filthy rich guy doing.
