23 Oct – It seems that Leonardo DiCaprio's habit of ad-libbing his lines has now slightly irritated both director Martin Scorsese and his co-star Robert De Niro during the filming of their latest film, "Killers of the Flower Moon".
Scorsese shared this in an interview with The Telegraph, saying that Leo DiCaprio and De Niro both have different approaches to their roles, with the former endlessly improvising and the latter not wanting to talk.
However, between the two different approaches, Leo's tendency seemed to test his patience the most.
"Every now and then, Bob [De Niro] and I would look at each other and roll our eyes a little bit. And we'd tell him: 'You don't need that dialogue,'" he said.
"Killers of the Flower Moon", based on the book by the same name by David Grann, centres on a series of Oklahoma murders in the Native Americans Osage Nation during the 1920s, committed after oil was discovered on tribal land. It also co-stars Lily Gladstone, Jesse Plemons, and John Lithgow among others.
In the same interview, Scorsese did admit that it was Leo who made him realise that the movie should be made from the perspective of the Osage. The original draft had the story told from the point of view of the bureau agents coming in to investigate the murders.
