In promotion of the City of Dreams Manila resort in the Philippines, DiCaprio and De Niro run into each other with matching scripts and wonder whether they'll finally get to work together. Scorsese breaks it to them that "technically no," they won't be working together. They'll instead be competing against one another.
Brad Pitt is also featured on a billboard but doesn't seem to be in the race for the leading role.
"It’s not that you’re competing, it’s more like you’re vying for the same part. Don’t you ever vie?" Scorsese explains.
