The first teaser for Martin Scorsese’s return to the world of organized crime, The Irishman, is here, and it shows how one notorious hitman was able to change the course of history.
Robert De Niro headlines The Irishman as mob hitman Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran, reputed to have carried out more than 25 murders. Al Pacino will portray infamously slain labor leader Jimmy Hoffa in what will mark the Academy Award winner’s first time working with Scorsese. Joe Pesci will portray Pennsylvania Mafia boss Russell Bufalino, who may have had a hand in the disappearance of Jimmy Hoffa. Ray Romano will play another member of the same crime family, Bill Bufalino. Bill Bufalino works as a Teamster lawyer.
Steve Zaillian (Schindler’s List, American Gangster) penned the script based on the novel I Heard You Paint Houses by Charles Brandt.
The Irishman will arrive in theaters and on Netflix this fall.
