The Hollywood star injured his quadriceps in mid-May while filming the movie “Killers of the Flower Moon.” Apparently he simply tripped over something and fell while in his rented Oklahoma home, but the pain was excruciating.
Requiring serious medical attention, the legendary actor had to immediately fly back to New York. “I just have to have the procedure done, keep my leg straight in a certain position, and let it heal,” De Niro said in an interview with IndieWire.

The production was not affected because Robert had finished filming some scenes and had already scheduled some time off before the incident. In addition, he noted that his role is quite sedentary, so he should continue filming without major problems.
Based on true events, “Killers of the Flower Moon” tells the story of how wealthy members of the Osage tribe were murdered under mysterious circumstances in the 1920s, shortly after large oil deposits were discovered on their lands, causing a major FBI investigation.
Robert will play rancher William Hale, leading a cast that also includes Leonardo DiCaprio as his nephew Ernest Burkhart, as well as Jesse Plemons and Lily Gladstone. It will be the first Western-style film of Scorsese’s career, the tenth feature film in which he works with De Niro and the sixth with DiCaprio.
