The Irishman (Netflix tempts Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro into new Cri-Fi film).

July 31, 2019 | By | Reply More

Netflix is bringing us a new Scorsese and De Niro crime flick (with a little added Joe Pesci and Harvey Keitel just for kicks) called The Irishman, based on the cri-fi book I Heard You Paint Houses by Charles Brandt.

The movie has Robert De Niro as Frank Sheeran, a labour union leader and alleged hitman for the Bufalino crime family, with Al Pacino as Jimmy Hoffa.

Here’s the official blurb:

Frank Sheeran is a World War 2 veteran and a former hitman for the mob. His time spent during the war in Italy made him a talented killer. To make ends meet, Frank utilizes his skills to become a hitman for the mob. Now in his old age, Frank reflects back on the moments and hits that defined his mob career. Especially his role in the disappearance of his old friend Jimmy Hoffa, a former president of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters that went missing in 1975, never to be seen again.
