The gangster movie dream team of Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Joe Pesci and Harvey Keitel join forces for Martin Scorsese‘s long-awaited The Irishman. Netflix has dropped over $150 million on this decades-spanning crime film and the majority of the cash was apparently spent on digital de-ageing the film’s stars.
This looks like exactly like the punchy, adult oriented type of pic that you’d expect from Scorsese – but it remains to be seen if the special effects will convince.
Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci star in Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman, an epic saga of organized crime in post-war America told through the eyes of World War II veteran Frank Sheeran, a hustler and hitman who worked alongside some of the most notorious figures of the 20th century. Spanning decades, the film chronicles one of the greatest unsolved mysteries in American history, the disappearance of legendary union boss Jimmy Hoffa, and offers a monumental journey through the hidden corridors of organized crime: its inner workings, rivalries and connections to mainstream politics.
