the wolf of wall street The fabulous movie director Martin Scorsese makes his victorious return this November with his most current film 'The Wolf of Wall Street'. This uncommon, black funny about the life of infamous conman Jordan Belfort Stars Hollywood A-lister Leonardo DiCaprio. If you've never ever heard of Jordan Belfort then you probably do not keep up with the New York Stock Exchange. Belfort who was born and raised in New York, was rumored to be worth $250 million dollars at the tender age of 25 and his amazing company Stratton Oakmont was run like a boiler room. The remarkable business was the motivation for the motion picture 'Boiler Room' which starred Vin Diesel. For most of the 90s, Belfort ran his business like a cult, employing young brokers straight out of high school. His dedicated employees would make cold calls from his Long Island office, following a script that Belfort himself hand composed. His life seemed like a dream, he was the head of a company which raked in substantial profits, he was married to a model and every little thing seemed to great to be real. That turned out to be the trouble though, things were too good to be true. The fast lifestyle was accompanied by crazy partying and use of all the various drugs would eventually catch up with the off beat crook however not before he amassed a remarkable fortune. The very mention of the brokerage Stratton Oakmont still drives chills down the spines of wall street investors. It was one of the most infamous pump and dispose of schemes of all time where trippy, young brokers high out of their minds, would convince investors to buy stocks that were certain to turn huge profits ... for the firm that is. Essentially, the brokers would drive up the stock's prices and then Belfort would sell the large majorities he and his partners controlled. This liquidation would of course cause the stock price to plummet and the investors would lose practically everything. The movie 'The Wolf of Wall Street' is based on a book that Belfort wrote after he was released from prison. This story is so weird that it had to be true. For instance, Belfort's cell mate was Tommy Chong from the duo Cheech and Chong. The strange tales don't stop there. Belfort admits to sinking a 167 foot yacht which once belonged to Coco Chanel. These are just a few of the strange stories from the book which the brilliant Scorsese is sure to incorporate into this black comedy about wealth wrong doing and redemption. The amazing book is already a certified New York Times best seller and the movie is sure to garner similar success as Scorsese join Leonardo DiCaprio who will play Belfort. This extraordinary story proves that the truth truly is stranger than fiction due to the fact that no one in Hollywood could have composed a script this eccentric. The film is scheduled to be launched on November 15 of this year and the movie is not yet ranked.
