THE SUNDAY FILM

In 1987, Brian De Palma wanted to hire Robert De Niro, whom he had already directed three times, to play the famous baron of the underworld Al Capone in The Untouchables. However, during this period, the actor moved away from the cinema and claimed a substantial fee for a role which only required two weeks of filming. While producers prefer Bob Hoskins, the director gives them an ultimatum and wins their case. The perfectionist performance of De Niro, who notably went to Italy to gain 12 kilos and find the mafia’s costume tailors to order them identical clothes, finally convinced them.
