De Niro And Scorsese Join Forces For Memoir

Hollywood pals ROBERT DE NIRO and MARTIN SCORSESE are reteaming once again - to write a book about their 30-year friendship and the eight movies they've made together.

Director Scorsese, 61, and actor De Niro, 60, both grew up in New York and first joined forces for the 1973 film MEAN STREETS, about young hoodlums making their way in New York's Little Italy.

The collaboration launched a friendship that has spanned 30 years and sparked a string of movies, including TAXI DRIVER, RAGING BULL, CAPE FEAR and GOODFELLAS.

Scorsese says in a statement, "We came from the same New York neighbourhood but hung out on different streets.

"We can finish each other's sentences and understand things that are not said. It's like a professional marriage, and the offspring are the movies."

The untitled book is scheduled to be published in 2005.
