Netflix just released a new official trailer for The Irishman directed by Oscar-winning filmmaker Martin Scorsese. Scorsese’s new drama is the ninth feature film he and Robert De Niro have worked on together as director and actor.
The cast is led by two-time Oscar winner Robert De Niro (Raging Bull, The Godfather: Part II), Oscar winner Al Pacino (Scent of a Woman), and Oscar winner Joe Pesci (Goodfellas). Harvey Keitel, Ray Romano, Bobby Cannavale, Anna Paquin, Stephen Graham, Stephanie Kurtzuba, Jack Huston, Kathrine Narducci, Jesse Plemons, Domenick Lombardozzi, Paul Herman, Gary Basaraba, and Marin Ireland also star in The Irishman.
Steven Zaillan adapted Charles Brandt’s 2003 book, I Heard You Paint Houses, for the screen. Scorsese, De Niro, Jane Rosenthal, Emma Tillinger Koskoff, Irwin Winkler, Gerald Chamales, Gaston Pavlovich, and Randall Emmett produce.
Martin Scorsese’s behind the scenes team includes director of photography Rodrigo Prieto, production designer Bob Shaw, costume designers Christopher Peterson and Sandy Powell, and editor Thelma Schoonmaker. Lucasfilm’s Industrial Light & Magic was tapped to transform De Niro and the cast into younger versions of themselves for flashbacks.

The Irishman Plot, Courtesy of Netflix:
Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci star in Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman, an epic saga of organized crime in post-war America told through the eyes of World War II veteran Frank Sheeran, a hustler and hitman who worked alongside some of the most notorious figures of the 20th century. Spanning decades, the film chronicles one of the greatest unsolved mysteries in American history, the disappearance of legendary union boss Jimmy Hoffa, and offers a monumental journey through the hidden corridors of organized crime: its inner workings, rivalries and connections to mainstream politics.
