They did it for Michael Douglas in Ant-Man & Arnold in the last Terminator film. You're really this quick to write off Scorcese because of CGI ??

Would I opt to just tell the movie from the characters at 70, given all of the actors ages? Yes I would....but I'm very fascinated at what Marty is going to do with this technology...I'm sure he'll have a pretty critical eye for what he thinks looks good/acceptable.

Wait - so Pesci is on board?

Re: The Irishman (I Heard You Paint Houses), D: Scorsese; S: DeNiro, Pacino, Pesci

Quote:
Martin Scorsese’s “The Irishman” has its greenlight. The $100-million gangster movie Netflix acquired earlier this year will start production in August, according to sources connected to the production. The film marks the ninth collaboration between Scorsese and Robert De Niro, who plays Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran, a mob hitman who supposedly was involved in the death of Jimmy Hoffa.

Al Pacino will play Hoffa in the film, which also stars Joe Pesci, Bobby Cannavale, and Harvey Keitel, according to IMDb. Steve Zaillian (“Moneyball”) adapted “The Irishman” from Charles Brandt‘s 2003 book, “I Heard You Paint Houses,” about Sheeran’s career as a hitman. De Niro will be made to look around 30 years old by VFX company Industrial Light & Magic.

Shortly before presenting De Niro with the Film Society of Lincoln Center’s Chaplin Award in New York on Monday, Scorsese told the crowd that the two would begin working on their next project together in “a few weeks.” Director of photography Rodrigo Prieto will shoot “The Irishman,” having previously served as cinematographer on Scorsese’s “Silence” and “The Wolf of Wall Street.”

Sources say Netflix is aiming for a 2019 release day-and-date with a limited Oscar-qualifying release. The company has 93 million subscribers in 190 countries. Netflix declined comment.

STX Entertainment first acquired the rights to “The Irishman” for $50 million at last year’s Cannes Film Festival. The deal represented an enormous sum for a movie didn’t exist yet, but Scorsese was coming off a major hit with 2013’s “The Wolf of Wall Street,” which took in $392 million at the worldwide box office.

Paramount Pictures, which still has a production deal with Scorsese through 2019, was originally planning on producing “The Irishman” before Netflix took all world rights in February. The project was first announced back in 2008.

Re: The Irishman (I Heard You Paint Houses), D: Scorsese; S: DeNiro, Pacino, Pesci

Pesci is confirmed!

Quote:
Martin Scorsese is putting the band back together. Joe Pesci and Harvey Keitel have officially joined Al Pacino (whose deal is currently being finalized) and Robert De Niro in Scorsese’s Jimmy Hoffa disappearance film The Irishman. Bobby Cannavale is also joining the fray for Netflix.

The Irishman will mark the first time that Pacino and Scorsese will have worked together and the first time all the Italian greats are on the big screen together. The film starts shooting next month in and around New York and will continue through December.

Pesci’s involvement comes after the actor said no multiple times (some say about 50); a deal was just sealed this week. He will portray Russell Bufalino, a Mafia boss out of PA and has been long suspected of having a hand in the disappearance of Hoffa. Pesci and Scorsese have done three films together.

Producers of The Irishman are De Niro, Fabrica’s Gaston Pavlovich, Jane Rosenthal, Scorcese, Randall Emmett and Emma Tillinger Koskoff. Also on board: Scorsese’s longtime collaborators Ellen Lewis (casting director) and Thelma Schoonmaker (editor). The film is expected to get a small theatrical release to qualify for Oscar.

This project has been embroiled in controversy when the author of the book I Heard You Paint Houses (which is slang for a hit ala “painting” the walls with blood) Charles Brandt penned it based on the deathbed confession of Frank ‘The Irishman” Sheeran. The hitman claimed to tell the real story of the disappearance of former union boss Jimmy Hoffa. However, the account that Sheeran told to Brandt has been disputed. Still, the FBI actually thought enough of Sheeran’s confession to pull up several floor board planks from a house where he said he shot and killed Hoffa to look for DNA (blood) evidence. Latter the bureau said that the DNA samples weren’t from the former Teamsters boss.

It’s one of the coldest cases in history, but there is no statute on murder so it is not closed.

Over the years, many stories about what happened to Hoffa has sprung forth, all to be debunked one by one by one. There are a couple of men still alive today whose knowledge of the event would carry weight with the FBI and who the bureau considers really do know what happened on July 30 after Hoffa got into Chuckie O’Brien’s car outside the Machus Red Fox restaurant and then disappeared, but these guys (now in their 90s) still aren’t talking.

The Hoffa kids, one still in union politics in Detroit and the other a former judge in St. Louis, are still waiting for resolution to bring their father’s remains back to bury next to their mother. They nor anyone else will likely know the full story behind his disappearance, but it is very possible that they will find out where their father’s remains are in their lifetimes.

Pesci is represented by longtime manager Melissa Prophet and Jai Stefan, his longtime producing partner. Keitel is repped by ICMPartners and lawyer Todd Rubenstein while Cannavale is repped by WME and Framework management.

So...I guess this is going to have to settle for Emmy nominations for awards? No way I see Netflix financing something and not making it available to stream immediately.

I thought it was going to have a limited theatrical release to qualify for the Oscars.

ESPN won the Best Documentary Oscar this year.

Amazon Prime won Best Actor and Best Original Screenplay, so it's not like a streaming service can't pull off a major awards picture.

Even though I know it won't make a difference either way, if this film doesn't get a theatrical release, I'll cancel my Netflix subscription in a heartbeat and won't watch the film at all. I guess everyone has to take a stand at least once in their life, I just never knew for me it would be for something that, in the grand scheme of things, is pretty trivial.

Amazon movies don't show up day of theatrical release which is the main sticking point for some people when it comes to Netflix. And I left out "Short Subject" on that oscar win, my bad.

Netflix supports theatrical releases, but a lot of the theater chains don't support it being available to stream the same day and will refuse to show their flicks.

Doesn't like they're doing anything to make those guys look younger.

They’re going to do the whole de-age thing for other parts.

Anna Paquin star appeal has fallen over the years.

Other than Scorsese, everyone in this film is literally decades past their prime, star power, etc. Seems unfair to single out Paquin over a few years, she'll do just fine.

Re: The Irishman (I Heard You Paint Houses), D: Scorsese; S: DeNiro, Pacino, Pesci

Well just because her star appeal is gone does not mean that her acting ability has gone away too. I agree that she will do fine.

This movie probably would have been better if it could have been made in the late 90's after Goodfellas, Casino, and Heat (three roles of Deniro that I think of the most as him giving awesome performances in great movies).

And then they would just have had to use makeup to make Rob look younger/older. Going from around middle age to young or old would always seem easier to pull off, as opposed to going from young to old or old to young.
