Robert De Niro and Martin Scorsese to reteam for The Irishman?
Robert De Niro and Martin Scorsese are looking to team for the film The Irishman”.
Based on a book “I Heard You Paint Houses” by Charles Brandt, the story focuses on mobster Frank Sheeran who supposedly killed Jimmy Hoffa, Joe Gallo, and many others.
Speaking about the project De Niro said, “We have a more ambitious idea, hopefully, to make it a two-part type of film or two films. It’s an idea that came about from Eric Roth to combine these movies using the footage from ‘Paint Houses’ to do another kind of a [film that is] reminiscent of a kind of ‘8 1/2,’ ‘La Dolce Vita,’ [a] certain kind of biographical, semi-biographical type of Hollywood movie – a director and the actor – based on things Marty and I have experienced and kind of overlapping them.” Sounds like it’s already shaping up to be another great film for Scorsese. It will be great to see De Niro and Scorsese team up again and on a possible two part film nonetheless.
