While discussing the best actors of all times, Robert De Niro and Al Pacino always come up in the conversation. You probably have seen Marlon Brando, Jack Nicholson and Humphrey Bogart too, but there is something about these two that we just can’t put our finger on.
So, when it was revealed that the pair are going to reunite together for Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman, we couldn’t help but get hyped.
Some set pictures have surfaced showing everyone the gangsters working together. They are the baddest there!
The drama is produced by Netflix which is going to be the biggest film to date since they spent $105 million just for the privilege of getting this incredible team together.
The film will be released in 2019 and Joe Pesci and Harvey Keitel will also be joining the famous team. I know right? Unbelievable.
This movie is based on the book named I Heard You Paint Houses by Charles Brandt and will tell the story of Frank The Irishman’s Sheeran (played by De Niro) who claims that he has been involved in the 1975 disappearance of Teamsters boss, Jimmy Hoffa.

While speaking to The Independent, Scorsese said that the movie will be pretty different.
“This is different, I think it is. I admit that there are – you know, Goodfellas and Casino have a certain style that I created for them – it’s on the page in the script actually.
“Putting Goodfellas together was almost like an afterthought, at times I was kind of rushing, I felt I’d already done it because I’d played it all out in terms of the camera moves and the editing and that sort of thing.
“The style of the picture, the cuts, the freeze-frames, all of this was planned way in advance, but here it’s a little different.”
Everything about this project is making us so excited to see the movie. What do you guys think?
