Martin Scorsese's The Irishman (De Niro/Pacino/Pesci)


Quote:
“The Irishman” is immense. Dare I say staggering? Someone’s already said Bressonian. Easily the strongest film of the year so far…EASILY. Specific, well honed, not an ounce of fat. Martin Scorsese stares into the jaws of death & finality. An epic study of guilt & gargoyles. - Jeffrey Wells
Quote:
TheIrishman is Scorsese’s version of “On the Waterfront” meets “The Godfather,” almost a swan song with an added layer of nostalgia for his own past work. The editing is particularly excellent and all three actors are strong - J Don Birnam
Quote:
The Irishman is Scorsese’s Unforgiven. A director giving you what you love about his work, with the maturity of an older man’s self reflection. Pesci, finally the boss, gentler and more contained, steals it for me. - Rebecca Keegan

Re: Joe Pesci shoots down The Irishman.

As long as Robert DeNiro and Al Pacino stay on board I'll be happy. Joe Pesci doesn't really act much these days anyway, he's only starred in three movies since Lethal Weapon 4 back in '98.

Re: Joe Pesci shoots down The Irishman.



Never realized Keitel was in it. Hope Scorsese works on this within the next couple of years. I have been waiting for this for the last 8 years and this could be an excellent swansong for both De Niro and Pacino.

Re: Joe Pesci shoots down The Irishman.

I know that Joe's pretty much retired from acting at this point but I'm still surprised he turned down the offer. I thought it would be one film that he would have been interested in.

Re: Martin Scorsese's The Irishman (TBA)

@eyebrowmorroco Stop your grinnin and drop your linen!

Although word first broke of Joe Pesci’s possible involvement in Martin Scorsese’s passion project The Irishman back in 2010, Deadline is reporting that the legendary actor has now officially signed on to re-team with Scorsese and Robert De Niro for the film after reportedly turning the role down nearly 50 times. This will mark Pesci’s first onscreen role since 2010’s Love Ranch, his fourth teaming with Scorsese (after Raging Bull, Goodfellas and Casino) and his seventh with De Niro. He will portray Pennsylvania Mafia boss Russell Bufalino, who may have had a hand in the disappearance of Jimmy Hoffa.

It has also been confirmed that longtime Scorsese regular Harvey Keitel (Who’s That Knocking at My Door, Mean Streets, Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore, Taxi Driver, The Last Temptation of Christ) is in talks to join the picture as Philly crime boss Angelo Bruno, after the actor’s involvement was also first mooted in 2010. Bobby Cannavale (Ant-Man, Boardwalk Empire) is in talks to play “Crazy Joe” Gallo of New York’s Colombo crime family.

De Niro will star as mob hitman Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran, who is reputed to have carried out more than 25 murders. Al Pacino will portray infamously slain labour leader Jimmy Hoffa. It will be Pacino’s first time working with Scorsese. It has also been reported that The Irishman may employ extensive (and expensive) digital de-aging techniques so the older actors can portray their characters through the decades.

Steve Zaillian (Schindler’s List, American Gangster) penned the script based on the novel “I Heard You Paint Houses” by Charles Brandt.

Netflix will finance and distribute The Irishman to theaters for an Oscar-qualifying run. De Niro, Fabrica’s Gaston Pavlovich, Jane Rosenthal, Scorcese, Randall Emmett and Emma Tillinger Koskoff will produce. Filming begins in July in New York and will continue through December.
