DJ Total Stock Market. Thanks to his aggressive pitching style and the high commissions, Jordan makes a small fortune. Jordan befriends his neighbor, Donnie Azoff, and the two found their own company. They recruit several of Jordan's friends, whom Jordan trains in the art of the "hard sell". The basic method of the firm is a pump and dump scam.
To cloak this, Jordan gives the firm the respectable-sounding name of Stratton Oakmont. Jordan becomes immensely successful and slides into a decadent lifestyle of prostitutes and drugs. He has an affair with a woman named Naomi Lapaglia. When his wife finds out, Jordan divorces her and marries Naomi. This brings him and his firm further to the attention of the FBI.
To hide his money, Jordan opens a Swiss bank account with corrupt banker Jean-Jacques Saurel in the name of Naomi's Aunt Emma, who is a British national and thus outside the reach of American authorities. He uses the wife and in-laws of his friend Brad Bodnick, who have European passports, to smuggle the cash into Switzerland. Donnie gets into a public brawl with Brad, and, while Donnie escapes, Brad is arrested. Brad does not say a word about Donnie or Jordan to the police.
Jordan learns from his private investigator that the FBI is wiretapping his phones. Fearing for his son, Jordan's father advises him to leave Stratton Oakmont and lie low while Jordan's lawyer negotiates a deal to keep him out of prison. Jordan, however, cannot bear to quit and talks himself into staying in the middle of his farewell speech. Jordan, Donnie, and their wives are on a yacht trip to Italy when they learn that Aunt Emma has died of a heart attack.
Jordan decides to travel to Switzerland immediately to settle the bank account. To bypass border controls, he orders his yacht captain to sail to Monaco , but the ship is capsized in a storm.
After their rescue, the plane sent to take them to Geneva is destroyed when a seagull flies into the engine. Jordan takes this as a sign from God and decides to sober up. Since the evidence against him is overwhelming, Jordan agrees to gather evidence on his colleagues in exchange for leniency. Now fed up with Jordan's lifestyle, Naomi tells Jordan she is divorcing him and wants full custody of their children. After Naomi slaps Jordan when he calls her a " cunt ", Jordan hits her, snorts cocaine, hits Naomi again when she tries to physically stop him from taking their daughter Skylar; he gets into the car with her but crashes into a brick pillar while pulling out of the garage.
The next morning, Jordan wears a wire to work but slips a note to Donnie warning him. Donnie keeps the note and rats out Jordan to the FBI. Jordan is arrested for breaching his co-operation deal. Despite his breach, Jordan receives a reduced sentence for his testimony and serves three years in a minimum security prison.
After his release, Jordan makes a living hosting seminars on sales technique. Additionally, frequent Scorsese collaborator J.
Thomas Middleditch plays a young stock broker who is fired by Donnie. Fran Lebowitz appears as a judge. Spike Jonze has an uncredited role as Dwayne, a penny stock trader. He describes having "wasted five months of [his] life" without getting a green light on production dates by the Warner Bros.
In , Warner Bros. In , a green light was given by the independent company Red Granite Pictures allowing no restrictions to the content development. Scorsese knew that there were no limits to the content that he would produce and therefore came back on board, resulting in an R rating. A civil lawsuit initiated by the U. Department of Justice has sought to claim "any rights to profits, royalties and distribution proceeds" from The Wolf of Wall Street.
In the film, most of the real-life characters' names have been changed from Belfort's original memoir. Donnie Azoff is based on Danny Porush. The name was changed after Porush threatened to sue the filmmakers. Porush maintains that much of the film was fictional and that Donnie Azoff was not in fact an accurate depiction of him.
In contrast, Mark Hanna's name remains the same as the LF Rothschild stockbroker who, like Belfort, was convicted of fraud and served time in prison. Hill didn't care about his settlement though, and wanted to play Donnie Azoff so badly that he was willing to do whatever it took to get the part as it was his dream to be in a Scorsese film.
Filming began on August 8, , in New York. In January , additional scenes were shot at a set built in an abandoned office building in Ardsley, New York. Scenes at the beach house were filmed in Sands Point, New York. Scorsese's longtime editor Thelma Schoonmaker stated that the film would be shot digitally instead of on film.
I think Marty just feels it's unfortunately over, and there's been no bigger champion of film than him. The Wolf of Wall Street uses animals including a chimpanzee, a lion, a snake, a fish, and dogs.
