Martin Scorsese - Martin Scorsese Re-teaming With De Niro For The Irishman

Subscribe to Martin Scorsese alerts

Martin Scorsese is teaming up with Robert De Niro for the ninth time in new movie 'The Irishman'.

The 'Shutter Island' director - who has made box office successes including 'Taxi Driver' and 'Goodfellas' with De Niro - will work with the 67-year-old actor for the first since 1995 movie 'Casino' on the forthcoming movie, based on the Charles Brandt novel 'I Heard You Paint Houses, Irishman'.

The movie tells the story of union leader Frank Sheeran, who goes on to become a mob hitman.

Screenwriter Steve Zallian ('Gangs of New York') is currently working on The Script for the project, which at one point had Al Pacino and Joe Pesci attached - it is not yet known if they still are on board for roles.

Scorsese revealed the movie was currently undergoing financing and could shoot as early as next year.

The Oscar-winning director is currently working on 'Hugo Cabret' with Sacha Baron Cohen and Chloe Moretz, which is due for release in late 2011.

He is also attached to direct and produce a movie about the life of singer and actor Frank Sinatra.
