Robert De Niro injured on Killers Of The Flower Moon sets; shooting suspended
The actor has flown back to his home in New York from Oklahoma, where he was filming for the Scorcese film
Actor Robert De Niro has injured his leg, while he was shooting for Martin Scorcese's upcoming movie Killers of the Flower Moon. The details of the actor's injury are not yet known.
According to reports, the 77-year-old has flown back to his home in New York from Oklahoma, where he was filming for his frequent collaborator Scorcese's film.
Also starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Killers of the Flower Moon is being helmed by Scorcese from a script written by Eric Roth.
Based on David Grann's 2017 bestseller, the film is set in 1920s Oklahoma, and centres on the Osage Nation murders, in which members of the Native American tribe were murdered one by one after the group became rich off the oil found underneath their land. As the death toll rose, the newly created FBI took up the case to uncover a chilling conspiracy and one of the most monstrous crimes in US history.
Jesse Plemons, Tantoo Cardinal, Pat Healy and Lily Gladstone will also be seen in pivotal roles in the Apple Original production.
