Martin Scorsese (Goodfellas, The Departed) returns to organized crime when The Irishman—a Netflix film starring Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci—premieres this November.
Spanning decades, the film chronicles “one of the greatest unsolved mysteries in American history,” the disappearance of union leader Jimmy Hoffa. It also “offers a monumental journey through the hidden corridors of organized crime: its inner workings, rivalries and connections to mainstream politics,” Netflix says.
The three-and-a-half-hour drama marks the ninth film collaboration between De Niro and Scorsese. It uses de-aging technology, making De Niro, Pacino and Pesci up to 30 years younger throughout the film.
The Irishman is based on the 2004 memoir, “I Heard You Paint Houses” by Charles Brandt. The cast also includes 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.
The Irishman premieres in theaters on Nov. 1 before arriving to Netflix on Nov. 27.
