Robert De Niro and Leonardo DiCaprio Team Up With Martin Scorsese – For an Ad?
You’d be surprised by how many beloved directors earn a little extra cash anonymously directing commercials, but when you hire the great Martin Scorsese to help sell your lavish new casino in Manilla Bay, Philippines, you end up with a full fledged Scorsese Picture. Which means that this is one of the most energetic and stylish advertisements you’ll see this year … and that it stars Robert De Niro and Leonardo DiCaprio.
Word is that the budget was over $70 million (with both stars taking home $13 million each!), this short film/commercial has got to be one of the most indulgent things we will see in 2015.
