Nas Is Moderating a Conversation With Robert De Niro & Martin Scorcese at 2024 De Niro Con

Long before the days of working together on Killers of the Flower Moon or The Irishman, director Martin Scorsese and actor Robert De Niro first teamed up more than 50 years ago on Mean Streets.

In celebration of five decades of the 1973 crime thriller, De Niro and Scorsese will take the stage at 2024 De Niro Con for a conversation moderated by none other than Nas.

The “I Can” rapper and De Niro in fact do have a relationship, as the iconic actor pulled up to the rapper’s 50th birthday party in NYC last year.

Tribeca’s De Niro Con is slated to take over New York City from June 14 through June 16. Following a 2 p.m. ET screening of Mean Streets on June 15, De Niro and Scorsese will engage in a unique conversation at Beacon Theater.

“I can’t think of a better way to celebrate 80 years of Robert De Niro, my dear friend and co-conspirator for the past 35 years, than by throwing a big bash for his fellow New Yorkers,” Tribeca co-founder and CEO Jane Rosenthal said in a statement. “From conversations with legends like Martin Scorsese, Quentin Tarantino, and David O. Russell to fan experiences, it is going to be a truly historic weekend as we pay tribute to a great talent.”

Ticket packages and day passes are now available online. Other De Niro blockbusters that will be showcased from his filmography include Analyze This, Meet the Parents, The Godfather Part II, Silver Linings Playbook, A Bronx Tale, Taxi Driver, Raging Bull and more.

“Robert De Niro is an acting icon,” actor Billy Crystal added. “He is one of my closest friends and working with him was one of the great experiences of my career. I’m really excited to honor him and his fantastic career this June.”

There will also be a screening debut of the De Niro, New York short film that will examine the actor’s roles from 40 different roles throughout his decorated Hollywood career.
