That mob would make an awesome film, but how about an ad? And one that cost $83m, at that.

Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert Di Niro and Brad Pitt all in one film? The trio of Hollywood A-listers have never come together in a film made by Martin Scorsese before, but its a partnership that many would kill to see happen. Well now it has – but it's for an ad.

A 60-second ad for an Asian casino launched online this week with a longer-length short film expected later this year. It's reported to have cost $83 million to make.

The US$3.2bn casino in Macau, China, sounds pretty swish. It's being developed by Melco Crown Entertainment -  a joint venture with James Packer's Crown casino business.

In the film, DiCaprio and Di Nero are both vying for the role of the casino owner. And they're not thrilled about it.

It was also produced by RatPac Entertainment's Brett Ratner, the director of Red Dragon, 'X-Men: The Last Stand, Hercules and the Rush Hour film franchise.

Mr. Brett Ratner said: "Our hope is that the trailer for "The Audition" gives audiences an early look into what will surely be an important cinematic experience directed by one of the most culturally influential directors in the history of Hollywood films.

"It will take the entertainment-inspired leisure destination concept to new levels, in a cinematic setting developed in partnership with the world's leading entertainment brands, supported and endorsed by many of the legends of Hollywood - including this very special short-film collaboration with Brett Ratner, Martin Scorsese, and superstars Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert De Niro and Brad Pitt."
