Updated: Robert De Niro has suffered a leg injury while in Oklahoma, Deadline has confirmed. He was there to shoot Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon, but the accident didn’t occur while he was on-set or during production. No details on what happened or the injury’s severity.
De Niro was already scheduled to head home today from Oklahoma to New York. When he lands, he’ll seek medical attention, sources said.
Production will reportedly not be delayed.
The Apple Original film is based on a book by David Grann and concerns a series of murders in 1920s Oklahoma. Before De Niro’s injury, it was expected to wrap later this year or early in 2022. The film stars De Niro, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jesse Plemons and Lily Gladstone.
