Robert De Niro's injury won't impact filming of Killers of the Flower Moon

Hindustan Times 16 May, 2021 - 11:00am

Actor Robert De Niro's leg injury will have no impact on the filming of filmmaker Martin Scorsese's upcoming movie, Killers Of The Flower Moon.

Robert was injured at his home in Oklahoma, where he was living to film Martin's big-budget period thriller, and later returned to New York, where he is currently seeking medical treatment.

The actor's injury, however, will not impact the shooting of the film, reported The Hollywood Reporter. A rep for the actor provided the details regarding his health condition recently. De Niro is receiving medical treatment back home in New York and is not scheduled to shoot again for another three weeks.

"While at his on-location home in Oklahoma for the filming of Martin Scorsese's Killers of the Flower Moon, Robert De Niro injured his quadriceps muscle, which will be treated medically in New York," his representative told the outlet.

"This will not affect production as he was not scheduled to film again for another three weeks," the rep added.

Killers of the Flower Moon, written by Eric Roth and based on David Grann's best-selling book of the same name, also stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Jesse Plemons and Lily Gladstone.

The film is set in 1920s Oklahoma against the backdrop of the serial murder of members of the oil-wealthy Osage Nation, a string of brutal crimes that came to be known as the Reign of Terror.

In the upcoming film, Robert will play the role of powerful rancher William Hale, while Leonardo will essay the part of his nephew, Ernest Burkhart.

Lily, who was raised on the Blackfeet Reservation in northwestern Montana and comes from the Kainai (Blood), Amskapi Piikani (Blackfeet), and Niimiipuu (Nez Perce) Tribal Nations, portrays an Osage Nation community member married to Ernest. Jesse will play Tom White, the lead FBI agent investigating the murders.

Martin is directing and producing Killers of the Flower Moon for Apple Studios and Imperative Entertainment. Producing alongside Martin are Imperative's Dan Friedkin and Bradley Thomas and Leonardo DiCaprio's Appian Way Productions.

After the incident, De Niro flew back to his home in New York where he is receiving medical treatment.

The actor’ representative said the film’s production won’t be affected by De Niro’s injury as he was not scheduled to shoot for “another three weeks”.

“While at his on-location home in Oklahoma for the filming of Martin Scorsese’s ‘Killers of the Flower Moon’, Robert De Niro injured his quadriceps muscle which will be treated medically in New York.

“This will not affect production as he was not scheduled to film again for another three weeks,” the representative said.

Scorcese’s “Killers of the Flower Moon”, which will also star Oscar winner Leonardo DiCaprio, is based on author David Grann’s 2017 bestseller of the same title.

Set in 1920s Oklahoma, the film 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 feature in pivotal roles in the Apple Original movie.
