Watch: Martin Scorsese Teams with Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert De Niro and Brad Pitt on New Short Film

Jan 13, 2015

In a year that's sure to be stuffed with all kinds of really cool short films, it'll be hard for any of them to top what Martin Scorsese is working on. The director, known for stepping behind the camera for various short films and commercials in between filming his features (his last featured Matthew McConaughey and Scarlett Johansson), has one-upped himself by tackling a new short that's touting the opening of two casinos in Manila. And, well, this is a guy who knows a thing or two about casinos...

But what's so special about this particular Scorsese short is that it stars Robert De Niro, Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt. Scorsese has worked with De Niro eight times during his career and DiCaprio five times, but neither have appeared together in the same Scorsese picture. Funnily enough, that's what the short is about -- the two Hollywood heavyweights competing for the same role in a movie.

Here's one trailer.

 

It's called The Audition, and it'll arrive at some point in the middle of 2015. We also know Brad Pitt is in the short, too, marking the first time he's ever worked with Scorsese. You can catch a quick shot of Pitt's face on a billboard in the second trailer for the short, featured below.

 

For Scorsese fans, this is everything. It's a chance to watch him play in the world of casinos again alongside the two guys who've populated most of his movies over the years -- plus one star he's never worked with. The downside? It's not a feature. But it still exists, and even at a smaller length, it's already one of our most anticipated movies of the year.
