A De Niro’s rep told Fox News that “he was always scheduled to leave for New York for two weeks so his leg injury [has] nothing to do with the production schedule.”

TMZ was told by a production source that the crew was told they’d have the day off on Friday, indicating he may have had scenes to film.

SAG-AFTRA did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment when asked if a day off is standard following an on-set injury.
