Guam News Factor – In the highly anticipated film ‘Killers of the Flower Moon’, renowned director Martin Scorsese brings together Hollywood icons Robert De Niro and Leonardo DiCaprio for the first time in their illustrious careers. In a recent profile by the Wall Street Journal Magazine, Scorsese delved into the distinct working styles of these two acting powerhouses.
Scorsese revealed that during production, he noticed an interesting dynamic between DiCaprio and De Niro. The director mentioned that DiCaprio’s penchant for improvisation occasionally tested De Niro’s patience, leading Scorsese to fondly say to DiCaprio, “You don’t need that dialogue.”

In ‘Killers of the Flower Moon,’ DiCaprio takes on the role of Ernest Burkart, while De Niro portrays William Hale. This film marks a significant milestone for Scorsese, as it represents his tenth collaboration with De Niro and his sixth with DiCaprio. Previous projects where the two actors shared the screen include ‘This Boy’s Life’ and ‘Marvin’s Room.’ They also appeared together in Scorsese’s short film ‘The Audition’ back in 2015.
As anticipation for ‘Killers of the Flower Moon’ builds, fans can look forward to witnessing the remarkable chemistry between De Niro and DiCaprio on the silver screen once again. The film is set to release in theaters this Friday, promising to be a cinematic experience that blends exceptional performances with Scorsese’s masterful direction.
