THE IRISHMAN trailer – Martin Scorsese brings De Niro, Pacino and Pesci together for Netflix

It’s almost hard to believe the Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro (and Joe Pesci) haven’t worked together since CASINO… that was 1995! Thanks to Netflix’s THE IRISHMAN, they’re reunited, and joined by the great Al Pacino playing Jimmy Hoffa. The movie is based on the Frank Sheeran (aka “The Irishman”) book titled “I Heard You Paint Houses”, with De Niro playing Sheeran in the film. The supporting cast is nothing to sneeze at either, featuring Harvey Keitel, Ray Romano, Bobby Cannavale, Anna Paquin, Stephen Graham, Stephanie Kurtzuba, Jack Huston, Kathrine Narducci, and Jesse Plemons. And since the film takes place over multiple decades, we’ll be seeing digitally-enhanced on the actors to make them look younger when necessary. We’ve seen this done quite well in other recent films, so it should be interesting to see how Scorsese implements it. Take a look at the first trailer below and tell us your thoughts in the comments.

THE IRISHMAN releases later this year
