Just as Shutter Island, his latest film and latest collaboration with his new favorite leading man Leo DiCaprio, premiered at Berlinale this weekend, Martin Scorsese was already talking about re-teaming with one of his all-time great frontmen, Robert De Niro. According to Reuters, Scorsese said the following about his potential future, most notably in the world of gangster movies:

“Bob De Niro (and I) are talking about something that has to do with that world… We’re working on something like that, but it’s from the vantage point of older men looking back, none of this running around stuff.”

Gangsters in rocking chairs, reminiscing about da good old days. That is perhaps a concept that Scorsese could make interesting. As well, it fits with the current career track of Mr. De Niro (no offense, Bob), as he is starting to do a lot of old guy movies. And looking back at past as a mobster would be far more entertaining than trying to reconnect with estranged kids, as was the case in Everybody’s Fine.

As you know, De Niro and Scorsese have previously teamed up for the likes of Raging Bull, Taxi Driver, Cape Fear and Casino. And as you can see in the image above, De Niro still has that “you looking at me?” look down.
