Martin Scorcese, Robert DeNiro, Joe Pesci and Al Pacino Teaming Up for new Mob Movie?

14 Sep
I am pleased to report a good movie rumor for once. If this is true, I am really excited for this film to come out. According to deadline.com, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci are interested in teaming with Martin Scorcese (one of the best, if not the best, directors of all time) and Robert De Niro for a new mob movie project called “The Irishman”. The film will be based on a mob hitman, Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran, and his exploits as portrayed in the book I Heard You Paint Houses.

 

DeNiro and Scorcese- The original Hollywood power couple.

This could quite possibly be the best rumor I have heard in a while. Teaming up some great actors (well, at least in their day…I mean, come on Al…”Simone“? I am not even going to go into “88 Minutes“), including the tried and true chemistry of Pesci and DeNiro. Plus, it will be Scorcese doing what Scorcese does best, mob movies. The project is still a ways down the road because he is tied up with his first 3D project, “Hugh Cabret” and he might do another film called “Silence”, which is based on a Shusako Endo novel, before he  gets around to putting this one in production. But, just the hint of this project gives me great hope for the future.

What are your thoughts about this? Will Scorcese be able to bring back the magic of “Goodfellas” and “Casino“?

    Those guys are getting pretty old. He better do it sooner rather than later!

      Haha. Pacino moves slower and looks more haggard in every movie. DeNiro though apparently moves around a lot in Machete, so I think he’s still got a decent amount of energy.
