On April 25, the cast of "GoodFellas" and director Martin Scorsese will reunite to close the Tribeca Film Festival with a celebration of the movie's 25th anniversary.

Scorsese and actors Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci, Lorraine Bracco, Ray Liotta and Paul Sorvino will take part in a conversation about the movie moderated by Jon Stewart at the Beacon Theatre in Manhattan after a screening of a remastered version of the film.

In a statement Scorsese said he was moved that the film would close the festival: "We wanted to make a movie that was true to Nick Pileggi's book and to the life of Henry Hill and his friends, which means that we broke some rules and took some risks. So it's heartening to know that 'GoodFellas' has come to mean so much to so many people."
