The cast and crew of Taxi Driver will reunite next month to mark the film’s 40th anniversary. Robert De Niro, Jodie Foster, and Cybill Shepherd, along with director Martin Scorsese and screenwriter Paul Schrader, are all confirmed to appear at the Beacon Theatre on April 21st. The event, which is part of the Tribeca Film Festival, will feature a screening of the movie along with a panel discussion moderated by Kent Jones.
Scorsese said in a statement, “It’s odd to think that four decades have passed since we shot Taxi Driver on the streets of a very different New York City. It was made in a surge of energy, starting with Paul’s one-of-a-kind script, and I was working with an extraordinary group of artistic collaborators as anyone could ever hope for — Jodie, who was 13 years old at the time, and Bob gave the picture something precious, dangerous and altogether remarkable. I’m honored to take part in the celebration of the film’s 40th anniversary at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival.”
