Leonardo DiCaprio and Lily Gladstone are shown in a scene from Martin Scorsese’s upcoming Apple Original Film “Killers of the Flower Moon.” The film is being shot in Oklahoma.

Early in their relationship, Mollie invites him in for a meal and they form a bond.

Apple released a "first look" image from Martin Scorsese's "Killers of the Flower Moon," a film being shot in Oklahoma.

In the image, actors Leonardo DiCaprio and Lily Gladstone are shown in a scene set in 1919 Oklahoma.

A native of Montana, Lily Gladstone is of Blackfeet and Nez Perce descent. She made her film debut in Alex and Andrew Smith’s “Winter in the Blood,” and has recently appeared on Showtime’s “Billions” as well as Kelly Reichert’s features “Certain Women” and “First Cow.”

“Killers of the Flower Moon” also stars Robert De Niro and Jesse Plemons as well as Tantoo Cardinal, Cara Jade Myers, JaNae Collins, Jillian Dion, William Belleau, Jason Isbell, Louis Cancelmi, Scott Shepherd, Sturgill Simpson and many others.
