Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Robert De Niro are teaming for a new Martin Scorsese-directed film. That’s the exciting news.
Now for the gut punch – it’s a short film being done as a promotional effort for the international resorts and casino brand Melco-Crown Entertainment. The label is a joint venture of Melco International Development Limited chaired by Hong Kong billionaire Lawrence Ho, and Crown Resorts Limited chaired by Australian billionaire James Packer.
Packer has become best buddies with filmmaker Brett Ratner, the pair are behind RatPac Entertainment which is slated to produce the effort. “The Wolf of Wall Street” scribe Terrence Winter will pen the script for the short which will premiere next year at a new movie-themed resort in Studio City, Macau.
