Martin Scorsese has described his new movie The Wolf of Wall Street as an exciting story.
The movie will be the fifth collaboration between the Oscar winning director and Leonardo DiCaprio, their first project together since Shutter Island.
Filming on the movie is yet to get underway but Scorsese is keen to get started.
Speaking to ET Online the filmmaker said: "We're aiming to start later this summer. It's such an exciting story.
"Even though it's set in the early '90s, the attitude is there. The actions are the same. Our values are the same."
"It's not like we had solid values until 1998 - the issue is that we were founded on certain values, and tried to maintain them."
Scorsese may be reuniting with DiCaprio on a Frank Sinatra biopic but he is yet to announce who will play the crooner.
DiCaprio has been linked to the role for some time but Scorsese hinted that he may yet cast an unknown actor for the part.
Scorsese found himself in the Oscar fold once again earlier this year as he was nominated for Best Director and Best Picture for Hugo.
The movie marked his first attempt at 3D and it was met with critical acclaim when it hit screens at the end of last year.
