Scorsese’s latest film will be set in 1920s Oklahoma and will focus on a number of brutal crimes that became known as the Reign of Terror.
It’s believed that Fraser will be playing a lawyer named W.S. Hamilton.
The film is currently in production and will be released theatrically, as well as heading to Apple TV+.
In addition to his involvement on Scorsese’s next film, Fraser is also attached to star in Brothers, from Palm Springs director Max Barbakow.
The cast for Brothers includes Emmy winner Peter Dinklage, and Oscar nominees Josh Brolin and Glenn Close.
It would be fair to say that for a multitude of reasons, Fraser has been out of the Hollywood spotlight.
However, with lots of new acting gigs coming his way, lots of fans are very excited about his career’s resurgence.
Long may the #Brenaissance continue!
