It reunites all the actors with Scorsese. De Niro has made eight movies with the acclaimed director, while DiCaprio also a string of collaborations to his name. Brad Pitt knows the filmmaker well and worked as a producer on The Departed. 

In other Scorsese news, we heard this week that the veteran filmmaker is to make a biopic of The Ramones. The director is in the "way way early stages" of the project, his representative Michell Margolis said.

Founded in 1974, The Ramones - Johnny, Joey, Dee Dee and Tommy - essentially kick-started the punk-rock movement and are considered one of the most influential bands of all time. 

Drummer Tommy Ramone was the last surviving member of the original outfit before his death aged 65 in July last year.
