“The Wolf of Wall Street” is based on Jordan Belfort’s best-selling memoir of the same title, which chronicles his rise and fall on Wall Street, along with his hard-partying lifestyle and tumultuous personal life.
According to Paramount, the film is a true-life drama, which teams DiCaprio with director Martin Scorsese for a fifth time, and it dives into the sex, drugs, yachts and 1990s excess of New York stockbroker Jordan Belfort, who penned the best-selling memoir “The Wolf of Wall Street.” DiCaprio stars as Belfort, a hard-living sort who makes mad money on Wall Street ($49 million in 1996 alone) and enjoys the booze and babes that come with it. The good times last for only so long, though, because the FBI shows up wanting Belfort to help in their case involving securities fraud and corruption.
“The Wolf of Wall Street” is set to hit North American theaters on December 25, 2013 and later in the Philippines.
