There’s a bit of a treat in store for Scorsese fans, and it will be hitting newsstands October 25th. The November issue of Harper’s Bazaar features photos of some big stars re-envisioning Scorsese classics, and discussing the man himself.
Take a quick peek below, and get a glimpse of a few of the images.
Harper’s Bazaar collaborated with famed director Martin Scorsese on a portfolio recasting some of his most memorable scenes, featuring stars including Christina Hendricks, Kate Bosworth, Emily Blunt, Michael Pitt, Sir Ben Kingsley, Chloe Moretz and Keanu Reeves in the magazine’s November issue, on newsstands October 25.
Emily Blunt is the star of Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore.
Vincent Piazza, Michael Pitt and Sir Ben Kingsley are Goodfellas.
Christina Hendricks and Jack Huston are recast in a scene from The Gangs of New York.
Plus, celebrated actors and Scorsese collaborators, including Jodie Foster, Tom Cruise, Sir Ben Kingsley, Winona Ryder, Sharon Stone, and more, tell their own tales about one of the world’s greatest storytellers.
Jodie Foster: “When we were shooting Taxi Driver, I think Marty was really uncomfortable with the fact that I was so young. The memory I have is of him and Robert De Niro trying to tell me how to unzip [De Niro’s] pants. And Marty keeps bursting out laughing. He can’t get a word out, and he tries to act serious, you know? He keeps smoothing down his face on both sides, but he just keeps laughing. And then De Niro decides he’s going to take over because he can do it.”
Chloe Moretz: “There’s an aura about him. He knows how to get that thing that makes it a Scorsese film; it’s completely unspoken. But I haven’t seen Taxi Driver yet. My mom won’t let me watch it.”
Tom Cruise: ”I met Marty a few years before I worked with him, in ’82 in L.A. Then I was shooting Top Gun and he offered me The Color of Money to do with [Paul] Newman. When we started working together, Marty would just giggle. And it was wonderful because sometimes in the more violent scenes, like when I got pissed and was going down the stairs and throwing down the briefcase, you could just hear him giggle.”
“At night, I’d go down to Marty’s parents’ room and have a family dinner. His mom Catherine’s lemon chicken, the pasta—incredible. Even after we stopped filming, I’d go over to his parents’ house and have Italian food any time I’d want. I’d call ahead, and they’d make my favorite dishes, and I’d stay with them for a night.”
