De Niro, Pacino Team Up With Scorsese For The Controversial ‘The Irishman’

The eminent actor Robert De Niro would be seen to work with the legendary director Martin Scorsese for a much awaited movie. The movie reportedly entitled “The Irishman” will depict a controversial issue dealing with Jimmy Hoffa’s alleged murderer.

The intrigue is mainly adapted from the celebrated book “I Heard You Paint Houses,” a 2004 publication that voices some striking yet noteworthy information that Scorsese has imbibed in the plot’s journey. The book claimed that Frank (The Irishman) Sheeran was responsible for the homicide of Hoffa. The President of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT) union suddenly vanished in 1975 at the age of 62 and seven years later, in 1982, he was declared dead. The aforesaid Detroit Free Press story on the Hoffa case revealed that Sheeran was commanded by his friend and mentor, Russell Bufalino, who was an upstate Pennsylvania crime boss at that time.

Scorsese’s work on this issue will certainly be a delicate yet sensitive treat for the cinema-worshippers and now his team consists of another distinguished name like De Niro to add happiness for all. Well, this film may see De Niro to digitally age in reverse. This finest digital technology will help to recreate the younger dimension of characters to make them suitable in the saga that sets in 70s backdrop. To refresh our memory, we must say the same technology has excelled in the celebrated film “the Curious Case Of Benjamin Button”.

Even the dullest man on the earth can bate that the fruit from this reunion of the two creative geniuses will be a classic one. Earlier, De Niro has worked a couple of times with the “Taxi Driver” director that resulted with excellent cinematic ventures like “Goodfellas”, “Mean Streets”, and more. This movie will have a wide ensemble casts comprising of stars like Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, and perhaps, Harvey Keitel.
