Having finally completed his decade-spanning passion project Silence, Martin Scorsese is set to give the people what they actually want, namely: an Irish mob film starring Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and, if the rumours are true, Joe Pesci and Bobby Cannavale.
Titled The Irishman and set to be released in 2019, the film is an adaptation of the book I Heard You Paint Houses, which chronicles the exploits of Frank 'The Irishman' Sheeran, a high-ranking mob hitman.
This will be the ninth collaboration between Scorsese and De Niro, with their latest film taking a different approach when it comes to distribution; after Netflix picked up the rights from Paramount.
In the meantime, Scorsese is busy working on a new project with Leonardo Di Caprio. Let's hope that he can convince him to make an appearance in a little Irish mob film with Bobby and Al.
