Gladstone, known for her roles in 'Certain Women,' 'Billions,' and 'First Cow,' will play Mollie Burkhart, an Osage woman who is married to DiCaprio's character.

Gladstone had her breakout role in Kelly Reichardt's Certain Women, for which she earned multiple accolades and nominations for Best Supporting Actress at the Independent Spirit Award and Best Breakthrough Actor at the Gotham Awards.

Other film credits include reuniting with Reichardt in last year's First Cow for A24, Alex and Andrew Smith's Winter in the Blood and Walking Out, Erica Tremblay's 2020 Sundance-selected short Little Chief and the award-winning 2020 SXSW-selected Freeland.

Based on David Grann's praised best-seller and set in 1920s Oklahoma, Killers of the Flower Moon depicts the serial murder of members of the oil-wealthy Osage Nation, a string of brutal crimes that came to be known as the Reign of Terror.

It is currently unknown when production on 'Killers of the Flower Moon' will begin or when it will premiere on Apple's streaming service.
