Scorsese, De Niro, and Possibly Pesci and Pacino, in New Mob Movie "The Irishman"

The online publication, along with many other Internet sites, reports that Joe Pesci and Al Pacino are signing on to the upcoming Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro film The Irishman.

The film is based on the life of Frank "The Irishman" Sheeran, a mob hit man who confessed to murdering union boss Jimmy Hoffa and many other people. His lawyer, Charles Brant, heard Sheeran's "confessions" and wrote I Heard You Paint Houses.

De Niro, who is half-Irish, is set to portray Sheeran, a Philadelphia native, and I'd like to see Pesci portray Jimmy Hoffa. Pacino could portray several mobsters from that era.
