Martin Scorsese has announced that he and brother from another mother Robert DeNiro will in fact team up for The Irishman. Originally titled I Heard You Paint Houses, the movie tells the story of hitman Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran. However, Scorsese sounds a little optimistic when he says that shooting could begin in early 2011. He’s still shooting Hugo Cabret because he needed time to master the 3D technology. Also, because he’s Martin Scorsese and it takes him forever to finish anything. All’s I’m sayin’ is the crew needs a ten-hour turnaround Marty. Let’s go with Take 78 and call it a night.
Joe Pesci and Al Pacino are also rumored to join the project, which would make this the most anticipated project of 1998. What do you think? Can Scorsese make us forget about Righteous Kill? I mean the movie’s existence, not the plot. We’ve all already forgotten about that. (Digital Spy)
