Al Pacino has great news for all Scorsese fans: The Irishman film is still alive and kicking!
Scorsese, who’s currently up to his neck in upcoming projects, including Silence, is apparently still moving forward with The Irishman—despite moving at a glacial pace—according to Pacino, who will star in the film. (This will be Pacino’s first time working with the director.)
He even added that Bobby Cannavale has joined the cast, which already includes Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci.
The Irishman, based on Charles Brandt’s book I heard You Paint Houses, is about Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran, a real-life mob hitman believed to have committed more than 25 murders, including Jimmy Hoffa’s.
Waiting a little longer for this film is a small price to pay to see the Scorsese, De Niro, Joe Pesci trifecta back in action.
