Two Trailers For A Martin Scorsese Directed Short: The Audition

During periods of his career, Martin Scorsese has enjoyed working with one lead actor over and over again. In the Seventies, Eighties and Nineties, that actor was Robert De Niro. In the last two decades, it was Leonardo DiCaprio. However, the three have never worked together on a feature film. That’s the gag in a series of commercials for two casinos in Manila, Philippines.

Scorsese directed the commercials, which star DiCaprio and De Niro as themselves, competing for a same role. However, these are not just commercials. These are basically trailers for a short film called The Audition that will also bring Brad Pitt into the mix. Yes, it’s a Martin Scorsese directed short starring DiCaprio, De Niro and Pitt. And rumor has it, each actor made over $10 million for the work. Check out the Martin Scorsese Leonardo DiCaprio Robert De Niro commercials below.

Thanks to The Film Stage for the heads up. Here are the two trailers, featuring lots of same footage, but each for a different casino owned by the same company: The City of Dreams in Manila and Studio City in Macau. In the second clip, you see a tease of Brad Pitt and a press release about the production confirms he’ll be appearing in the final film which will premiere later this year. Here’s a quote from Brett Ratner, a producer on the project:

This short film is a historic event because it is the first film ever to star such legendary actors as Robert De Niro, Leonardo Dicaprio and Brad Pitt in one film together.

Hunk

I was surprised to learn that another cameo has been discovered of young Brad. Dated from 1987 (filmed in 1986) Brad played a teeny tiny part in this movie called Hunk (For more info click on the link). A ridiculously bad movie but alas. I just love these discoveries! Have fun finding 23-year-old Brad in the screencaps below. And here is an easier preview to help, tanning on the right!

I also updated BP Press last week with the latest interviews. Tried my best to type them all out. If I am missing any, please let me know.

Furthermore I am taking a look at all the subpages such as Brad & Projects and updating them all or making them easier on the eyes. Hope you enjoy them. If you think it is missing a focus, then yes, email me. I like to be as elaborate as possible.
