- Martin Scorsese said that when he read David Grann's book "Killers of the Flower Moon," he knew that he had to make it into a movie. Scorsese spent several hours together with Chief Standing Bear to convince the Osage Nation to help with the filming.
- This film is not the first motion picture about the Osage Murders. Tragedies of the Osage Hills (1926) by James Young Deer was released in 1926, nearly a century ago. Later films such as The FBI Story (1959) likewise depicted the murders.
- Lily Gladstone was in the process of registering for a data analytics course and entering her credit card information when a Gmail notification alerted her to a request for a Zoom meeting with Martin Scorsese. As this was during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, Gladstone was considering a career change due to a dry spell. According to Leonardo DiCaprio, "There was no reading. Marty just instinctively knew Lily was the one. There was a truthfulness in [her] eyes that he saw even over a computer screen. I've never known [Scorsese] meet somebody and then immediately afterwards have this gravitational pull and instinct to say, 'Let's not wait another minute.'"
- Last movie of actor Larry Sellers. Of Osage and Cherokee descent, Larry was also an Osage language instructor.
- The book this movie is based on was written about true events. A series of murders of wealthy Osage people took place in Osage County, Oklahoma in the early 1920s, after big oil deposits were discovered beneath their land. After the Osage people were awarded the rights to the profits made from those deposits, they prepared to receive the wealth to which they were legally entitled. A complex plot was hatched to eliminate the Osage inheritors on a one-by-one basis by any means possible. Officially, the number of victims reached at least twenty, but more could be undocumented.
- Robert De Niro first mentioned Martin Scorsese to Leonardo DiCaprio after working with him on This Boy's Life (1993) and being impressed by his talent. This was rare because at the time Robert De Niro rarely recommended other actors. Scorsese remembered this years later when casting Gangs of New York (2002) and thus began his long collaboration with DiCaprio.
- Robert De Niro was rumored to be one of the leads in the project since 2017 until it was finally confirmed on Instagram by Martin Scorsese on July 29th, 2019 that De Niro would portray William Hale in the film.
- This will be the seventh collaboration between Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio and will also mark the eleventh collaboration between Scorsese and Robert De Niro if the short film The Audition (2015) is taken into account. This is also the fourth time De Niro and DiCaprio have appeared in a film (short or feature length) together. However, this is the first time that Scorsese, De Niro and DiCaprio will have all collaborated together on a feature film.
- Marks John Lithgow's first collaboration with Martin Scorsese and the fulfillment of a priority bucket list item Lithgow had eagerly entertained over the years. Lithgow was brought in toward the end of a 5-month shoot to film for two weeks in Pawhuska, Oklahoma. He has stated that he'd gladly have taken charge of the Craft Service table just to be in the company of Scorsese's ensemble.
- The investigation into Osage County was the first presented to the newly formed Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). It was led by J. Edgar Hoover.
- During a press conference at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival, Martin Scorsese said "It's not a whodunit. It's a who-didn't-do-it."
- Screenwriter Eric Roth stated that Leonardo DiCaprio insisted that his original screenplay be rewritten. In the original script prior to production, DiCaprio was to star as Tom White, the heroic FBI agent who traveled to the Osage Nation and solved a series of murders. This original script was more akin to a detective thriller. However, DiCaprio requested the script be revised in order to play Ernest Burkhart, the nephew of the villainous killer played by Robert De Niro who is torn between love and the machinations of his uncle. Paramount felt the script rewrite transformed the film from a commercial action thriller into a moody psychological drama. Consequently, Paramount empowered DiCaprio to shop the project, and the film was picked up by Apple Studios.
- According to David Grann's non-fiction book, "Killers of the Flower Moon," the Osage Indian murders involved a vast conspiracy involving hundreds of individuals as opposed to a few killers with several accomplices. When adapting the historical events into a motion picture, screenwriter Eric Roth's initial script streamlined the events and focused on several persons.
- William Hale (who will be played by Robert DeNiro) was about 45 when the Osage murders began. DeNiro is nearly 80 years old.
- Filming was originally scheduled to begin in March 2020, but this was suspended due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Production would begin in April 2021 and end in October.
- In 2007, when he won the Academy Award for Best Director, Martin Scorsese said in his speech that he hoped he would work with Leonardo DiCaprio for another twelve years. Upon release, that wish will have manifested.
- Brendan Fraser's casting in a supporting role was met with widespread positive support online, due to Fraser's long history of physical and professional hardships.
- Jesse Plemons had to turn down the role of Ricky "Jupe" Park in Nope (2022), which ended up going to Steven Yeun.
- A previous movie, The FBI Story (1959), contained a segment that told the story of the Osage murders and the FBI's involvement. The cast featured Native American actors Chief Yowlachie, Eddie Little Sky, and Vincent St. Cyr (a relative of Red Wing).
- Killers of the Flower Moon (2023) is based on the book of the same name. The book details an investigation into a spate of murders of wealthy Osage people in the early 1920s in Osage County, Oklahoma. The murders happened after large oil deposits were discovered under the Osage people's land and for which they were awarded rights in court to the profits.
- Robbie Robertson's final film score. He died two months before the film's general release.
- While Mollie was 10 years older than Ernest, Lily Gladstone who plays Mollie here is actually 12 years younger than Leonardo DiCaprio as Ernest.
- Costing $200 million, this is the most expensive biographical film ever made, surpassing Martin Scorsese's own The Irishman (2019), which cost $159 million. It is also the most expensive R-rated film (in the USA - other countries have different ratings systems) ever made, surpassing The Matrix Resurrections (2021), at $190 million.
- The film cast includes three Academy Award winners: Robert De Niro, Leonardo DiCaprio and Brendan Fraser; and two Academy Award nominees: John Lithgow and Jesse Plemons.
- This will be the third film to feature Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro after This Boy's Life (1993) and Marvin's Room (1996).
- This film is the second collaboration between Jesse Plemons and Martin Scorsese after The Irishman (2019).
- The Italian title keeps the original name, for the film. But the Italian adaption of the book is called: "Gli assassini della terra rossa" which means "Killers of the red ground".

- George Clooney had expressed interest in directing a film adaptation of David Grann's non-fiction book, "Killers of the Flower Moon" prior to Martin Scorsese coming aboard as director.
- Martin Scorsese cited the films of Ari Aster, particularly Midsommar (2019) and Beau Is Afraid (2023), as influences on the pacing, "The pacing of those films goes back to the B films of Val Lewton, Jacques Tourneur's Cat People (1942) or I Walked with a Zombie (1943). Just going a little slower, a little quieter."
- Some of the scenes shot near Fairfax, Oklahoma used a plot of land that was also used for scenes in Twister (1996) and its sequel Twisters (2024).
- J.J. Abrams was interested in directing the film adaptation.
- Killers of the Flower Moon premiered at the Cannes Film Festival.

- The theatre release in China has been cancelled by Apple , because Apple think the box office may unable to achieve previous goals made for this country, and for Applr it maybe cause a loss. And there has another reason that the film's duration is too long, not everyone in China will spend 3hrs to watch a movie in cinema, some audience will not buy a ticket for this reason.
