Harper's Bazaar Taxi Driver Photo

Previously we've seen some fantastic photospreads like Empire's Iconic Performance Recreated and Annie Leibovitz's spectacular live-action Disney shoots that call back to great films from the past. Now we have another phenomenal spread that calls back to the films of Martin Scorsese. Harper's Bazaar has an entire retrospective on the iconic director complete with comments from collaborators like Jodie Foster and Tom Cruise about working with the director (it's a great read), but the real treasure is this set of photos with actors like Keanu Reeves, Chloe Moretz and more recreating some scenes from Scorsese's films.

Here are the stellar photos inspired by the films of Martin Scorsese:

Scorsese Photoshoot - Taxi Driver

Scorsese Photoshoot - Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore

Scorsese Photoshoot - GoodFellas

Scorsese Photoshoot - The Aviator

Scorsese Photoshoot - Gangs of New York

Scorsese Photoshoot - Age of Innocence

So that's Keanu Reeves and Chloe Moretz creating the memorable and controversial relationship from Taxi Driver, but you probably don't recognize Emily Blunt as Alice in Alice Doesn't Live Here anymore. Meanwhile, Alessandro Nivola and Emily Mortimer recreate The Aviator, while Christina Hendricks and Jack Huston are featured in a scene from another Scorsese/DiCaprio collaboration in Gangs of New York. There's Kate Bosworth stepping in for Michelle Pfeiffer in The Age of Innocence though it's not clear who's kissing her. Finally Michael Pitt, Vincent Piazza and Ben Kingsley are the GoodFellas. This is one hell of an awesome set of photos, and I only wish there were more to see. Cool?

    bosworth is portraying michelle pfeiffer, not ryder.
    • Thanks for noticing. Just had a strange Freudian slip thinking about the other actress in the film and not the right one. It's been corrected!

      which still makes no sense to me seeing as how Olenska (played by Pfeiffer) was a dark, brooding young woman and May (played by Ryder) was a blonde bombshell. Come on.

    i think is orlando bloom who's kissing her
