Martin Scorsese’s ‘The Irishman’ gets new teaser trailer
Martin Scorsese has released the latest teaser trailer for his eagerly anticipated new film The Irishman.
Directed by Scorsese and written by Steven Zaillian, the film is based on the book I Heard You Paint Houses by Charles Brandt.
Far Out previously reported that the brilliant Joe Pesci has also agreed to join the cast of one of the most hotly anticipated films of recent times. He will join none other than the two major figureheads of the acting world, let alone the gangster genre, Al Pacino and Robert De Niro.
The film will be the first time Pacino and Scorsese have worked together while it will mark the first time De Niro has worked with the acclaimed director since starring in 1995’s Casino. The film will certainly be the first time these three Italian-American giants of the acting world will have worked together at once.
The Irishman depicts the life of real-life mob hitman Frank ‘The Irishman’ Sheehan, who alleged he was the gunman to bring down Jimmy Hoffa in the controversial murder. The script was adapted by Steve Zaillian (Schindler’s List) from Charles Brandt’s non-fiction novel I Heard You Paint Houses.
