The Oscar winner's 17-minute project, The Audition, was slated to screen for the first time at the Venice Film Festival in Italy, but officials have now confirmed the movie will not be ready in time to debut at the event, which kicks off on 2 September (15).

The Audition, which also stars Brad Pitt, features DiCaprio and De Niro as they try-out for the same role in a Scorsese film and it was created as part of a promotion for a pair of casinos in Asia.
