The two-time Oscar winner arrived in Argentina last Saturday to participate in the filming of Nada, a series starring Luis Brandoni -a friend of the protagonist of Taxi Driver- and directed by Mariano Cohn and Gastón Duprat that can be seen on the Star+ platform in 2023.
The fiction tells the story of Manuel (Luis Brandoni), a culinary critic who suddenly finds himself immersed in an economic and social crisis. In the midst of this extreme situation, Vincent (De Niro), a renowned foreign writer and friend of Manuel, arrives in Buenos Aires.
After completing his last day of shooting, De Niro returned to New York.
