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)

Pacino, Pesci to Join De Niro, Scorsese for ‘The Irishman’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/pacino-pesci-to-join-de-niro-scorsese-for-the-irishman/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/pacino-pesci-to-join-de-niro-scorsese-for-the-irishman/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 How many Italians does it take to make The Irishman? At least four, from what I can tell. Deadline is reporting that Al Pacino and Joe Pesci are joining Robert De Niro for Martin Scorsese's planned adaptation of I Heard You Paint Houses, a book chronicling the life of Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran, a reputed hitman who some suspect was behind the disappearance of Teamsters president Jimmy Hoffa. While the film would mark the first Scorsese/De Niro collaberation since Casino (1995), chances are it won't begin production anytime soon. Scorsese is currently working on Hugo Cabret and doing press for the HBO series, "Boardwalk Empire." The famed director is also slated to film a Frank Sinatra biopic, which would further postpone any work on The Irishman. Personally, all this talk about Irishmen and Italians is making me a little uncomfortable. Like my grandma always said, the only people worth a good god damn come from eastern Bulgaria. It's our world, and you punks are just living in it. International calling code 395 4 life, bitch! (Collider)
