DiCaprio, De Niro, Pitt, And Scorsese Finally Team Up... Kind Of

So close!

The dreams of film buffs everywhere are finally coming true... kind of.

Martin Scorsese is directing a casino-themed film starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert De Niro, and Brad Pitt, and written by "Boardwalk Empire" showrunner and "Wolf of Wall Street" writer Terence Winter. It's an incredible cast and sounds like Scorsese's answer to "Ocean's Eleven," or a long-awaited sequel to his own "Casino."

The only problem for the casual moviegoer? It's not exactly a "movie" in the traditional sense.

Yup, turns out it's actually a short film for a new movie-themed casino in Macau, Deadline reports, and is essentially just a long advertisement for Melco-Crown Entertainment (MCE), the company that's opening the casino.

De Niro and DiCaprio are Scorsese's two favorite actors, and they were originally slated to finally work together in "The Departed," until De Niro had to drop out of his role as Captain Queenan and was replaced by Martin Sheen.

So no, unfortunately, you'll have to wait a little longer to actually see the whole gang together on the big screen, though we're sure the Internet will find a way to show you what we're calling The Greatest Short Film Ever Made on your computer screen.

We can only hope working together now makes them even hungrier to work on a feature-length film in the future, cause we gotta see that, guys.
