Joe Pesci to Star in New Scorsese Flick THE IRISHMAN
Just when The Irishman couldn’t get any better, Martin Scorsese will be adding Hollywood heavyweight Joe Pesci to its already unbelievable cast. Since he’s enjoyed a somewhat long hiatus (with a few intermittent films in the way) this comes as a shock to most.
Pesci allegedly was offered a role in the film several times denying any interest to the part to Scorsese. Then in an interview with longtime editing partner to Scorsese, Thelma Schoonmaker, he changed his mind to come roaring back into Hollywood with a new mob thriller.
The Irishman is set to release on Netflix (Yes you heard that right) sometime during 2018. It is said to be a crime drama based off a book by Charles Brandt called I Heard You Paint Houses. It will start Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Bobby Cannavale, and Harvey Keitel.
