Cybill Shepherd and Paul Schrader will also take part in a post-screening conversation in honor of the film's 40th anniversary.

"You talkin' to me?"

Yes — at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival.

The fest, co-founded by Robert De Niro, announced Friday that Martin Scorsese, Jodie Foster, Cybill Shepherd and Paul Schrader will join the actor for the 40th anniversary of Taxi Driver.

The director, writer and cast of the Oscar-nominated 1976 psychological thriller will take part in a conversation after the special screening, set for April 21 at the Beacon Theatre in New York City.

"It’s odd to think that four decades have passed since we shot Taxi Driver on the streets of a very different New York City," Scorsese said in a statement. "It was made in a surge of energy, starting with Paul’s one-of-a-kind script, and I was working with an extraordinary group of artistic collaborators as anyone could ever hope for — Jodie, who was 13 years old at the time, and Bob gave the picture something precious, dangerous and altogether remarkable. I’m honored to take part in the celebration of the film’s 40th anniversary at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival."

The Tribeca Film Festival is set to run April 13-24.
