The Irishman Is Coming

During the Oscars this Sunday, a teaser for Martin Scorsese’s new film, The Irishman, debuted.

If you’re wondering why you should be excited by 3 lines of dialogue, then let me put everything in context. This film stars Robert DeNiro, Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, and the always forgotten Harvey Keitel and it’s directed by Martin Scorsese. They’re like the Avengers of gangster films having teamed up or made classics like The GodfatherGoodfellasHeat, Casino, Donnie Brasco, Gangs of New York and The Departed.

They’ve been giving everyone a serious case of blue balls since 2010 when they first started talking about the movie, which is based on the book I Heard You Paint Houses by Charles Brandt. The book details the story of Frank Sheeran, a mafia hitman thought to be connected to the assassinations of John F. Kennedy and Jimmy Hoffa.

The film is set to release in the fall in theaters and on Netflix. I’m told the film was going to be released 5 years earlier but the computing power needed to de-age Al Pacino and Robert DeNiro was still being developed by NASA.
