Martin Scorsese’s short film The Audition will not be screening at the Venice Film Festival next month after all. The festival said today that because of “unexpected technical problems” the roughly 17-minute short will not be ready in time for the September 2-12 fest. The film features Robert De Niro, Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt in a promotion for a pair of casinos in Asia.
Separately, the festival confirmed the screening of Heaven Can Wait by Ernst Lubitsch for Monday September 7th.
