An immersive production based on The Wolf of Wall Street will open in London later this year.

Staged by the team behind the immersive Great Gatsby experience and set over four floors, The Wolf of Wall Street production promises to “plunge audiences into a world of greed, power and excess”.

It is based on Jordan Belfort’s memoir of the same name, which was adapted into an Oscar-winning film by Martin Scorsese and starring Leonardo DiCaprio.

The London production will be adapted and directed by Alexander Wright, who also adapted The Great Gatsby, and will open in a central London location on September 5. Opening night is October 4.

Casting and venue for the show are yet to be announced.

It is produced by Louis Hartshorn and Brian Hook for Stratton Oakmont Productions.

In a joint statement, they said: “We’re building a world over four storeys in central London featuring iconic 1990s’ New York, trader schemes and even supercars. You’ll be able to eat in our restaurant, drink in our bars, trade with Jordan, or work for the FBI. Our guests can expect the outrageous, the spectacular and the downright ridiculous.”
