Ever have the urge to do a great deed and in the same breath go mano a mano with two of the most accomplished actors in cinema history while a legendary filmmaker captures the moment for all posterity? Ladies and gentlemen, this might be your lucky day.
Today, Robert De Niro and Leonardo DiCaprio announced via Instagram that in conjunction with The All In Challenge they are offering an opportunity for one very lucky fan to land a mucho coveted walk-on role in the still very much happening Martin Scorsese film, Killers of the Flower Moon. The All In Challenge is a charity founded by Fanatics owner Michael Rubin and intended to raise much needed money to help feed frontline workers, the elderly and children affected by the coronavirus by offering fans once in a lifetime interactive experiences with stars.
DiCaprio said in part that “If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to be able to work with the great Martin Scorsese, Robert De Niro and myself, this is your chance. Robert and I are going to be starring in a new movie called Killers of the Flower Moon, directed by Martin Scorsese. We want to offer you a walk-on role, the opportunity to spend the day on the set with the three of us, and attend the premiere.”
This is, of course, a cinephiles dream. Wanna ply Mr. Scorsese for details on the making of After Hours (my personal fave Scorsese film)? How about trading lines of dialogue with Mr. De Niro from perhaps the best film ever, The Untouchables? Or perhaps quiz Leo on what exactly that Michael Mann directed feature on James Dean (which was set to star a mighty young DiCaprio at one time) might have looked like? And, most importantly, do you want to contribute to the fight against the coronavirus by helping people in desperate need right now? If you answered yes to all of the following – with slight variations allowed on the first three points – then here are all of the details you need my fellow movie geeks:
