Harper's Bazaar celebrates Martin Scorsese by recasting and photographing some of his most memorable scenes, and talking with his collaborators. Here's a taste.

Jodie Foster, on shooting Taxi Driver
"I think Marty was really uncomfortable with the fact that I was so young. The memory I have is of him and Robert De Niro trying to tell me how to unzip [De Niro’s] pants. And Marty keeps bursting out laughing. He can’t get a word out, and he tries to act serious, you know? He keeps smoothing down his face on both sides, but he just keeps laughing. And then De Niro decides he’s going to take over because he can do it.”

Chloe Moretz, who channeled Foster for the shoot, alongside Keanu Reeves, channeling De Niro: "There's an aura about [Scorsese]. He knows how to get that thing that makes it a Scorsese film; it's completely unspoken. But I haven't seen Taxi Driver yet. My mom won't let me watch it."

Here's Vincent Piazza, Michael Pitt and Sir Ben Kingsley for Goodfellas; and more:
