The Trailer Of The Irishman Is Out

Robert De Niro and Al Pacino are here with “The Irishman” which reminds us of The Godfather. The Irishman is based on the 2004 memoir ‘I heard you paint houses’ by Charles Brandt and revolves around Frank (The Irishman) Sheeran played by Robert De Niro, who recounts his alleged jobs as a hitman for the Bufalino Crime Family.

The movie has been directed and produced by Martin Scorsese and written by Steven Zaillian. Robert De Niro will be playing the role of Frank (The Irishman) Sheeran, Al Pacino will be playing Jimmy Hoffa and Joe Pesci will be playing Russell Bufalino. The movie will also star Ray Romano, Bobby Cannavale, Stephen Graham, Harvey Keitel, Stephanie Kurtzuba, Jack Huston, Anna Paquin, Kathrine Narducci, Domenick Lombardozzi, Paul Herman, Jesse Plemons, Gary Basaraba, and Marin Ireland.

The Irishman had its world premiere at the 57th New York Film Festival on September 27, 2019. The movie is set to release on 1st November 2019 and will be digitally streamed on Netflix on 27th November 2019.

The Irishman is the story of Frank Sheeran, a mob hitman and World War II veteran who develops his skills during his service in Italy. Now as an old man, he reflects on the events that defined his career as a hitman, particularly the role he played in the disappearance of labour leader Jimmy Hoffa, his long-time friend, and his involvement with the Bufalino Crime Family.  

Martin Scorsese has been interested in directing “The Irishman” for a very long time. Producer Jane Rosenthal said that she had been working on it since 2007. In September 2014, Pacino confirmed that the film was in development and that it would be Scorsese's next project after Silence (2016). In July 2017, it was reported that the film's script by Steven Zaillian would be presented as a series of flashbacks of an older Frank Sheeran, depicted as recollecting his many criminal activities over several decades, with De Niro appearing "as young as 24 years and as old as 80." Rosenthal said that "what will surprise you is, like a Scorsese movie, it is a slower movie. It is guys looking at themselves through an older perspective".
