The gangster drama, The Irishman, is set to start production later in 2017, and will be based on Charles Brandt’s 2004 book, I Heard You Paint Houses, which chronicled the life of mob hitman Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran. On top of all the forgetting about it and whacking he did during his career, Sheeran also claims to have been hired by the mafia to carry out labor leader Jimmy Hoffa’s mysterious 1975 “disappearance.”
De Niro, Pacino, Pesci, and Scorsese all in one place is a big lineup for Netflix, which is hot off Ava DuVerney’s best documentary nom for 13th, and probably aiming for that best picture mountaintop after Amazon‘s success with Manchester by the Sea.
This will mark Scorsese and De Niro’s first feature-length collaboration since Casino in 1995. They’ve also previously teamed up on movies like Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, Goodfellas, and Cape Fear.
The team is reportedly aiming for a 2019 release.
