Martin Scorsese has spoken to Rolling Stone (via Yahoo) and revealed that in 2012 he wants to make a film with both Robert De Niro and Leonardo DiCaprio. However, which film that may be is still unclear.
In the interview, Scorsese stated:
My wish for next year (2012) is to get my friends Robert De Niro and Leonardo DiCaprio together… I’ve done eight films with Bob, four with Leo. They are my friends and collaborators. Now I want to join them up. It’s my dream and I’m going to make it happen.
Scorsese has come out and said that his next film will be the long awaited Silence and that Daniel Day-Lewis may be starring. The director has also said that he will make The Irishman with Robert De Niro in “the next year or so.”
So, the leaves us with the question of whether the DiCaprio and De Niro project be one of those two, or if the project that Scorsese is talking about is something entirely different.
There’s another possibility as well. A while back Scorsese said that he wanted Leonardo DiCaprio to play Frank Sinatra and Robert De Niro to play an older version of Dean Martin in the film Sinatra, which is currently going through re-writes. So could this be the film that Scorsese is referring to.
Keep in mind – there are even a bunch of other Scorsese films in the works that could be a DiCaprio/De Niro collaboration as well. Films like The Gambler or The Snowman are both in development and one of those could end up being the project that DiCaprio and De Niro star in.
