Robert De Niro, Martin Scorsese Reunite For The First Time In 24 Years
Robert De Niro and Martin Scorsese last teamed up in 1995 in an epic actor-director collaboration for the critically acclaimed Casino. The Irishman is the ninth collaboration between the duo. Along with De Niro, the movie also stars Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, Harvey Keitel, Anna Paquin, Bobby Cannavale and Ray Romano in pivotal roles. The crime genre film is based on Charles Brandt’s bestseller I Heard You Paint Houses and the screenplay is written by Steven Zaillian.
In The Irishman, Robert De Niro takes center stage as Frank Sheeran, a World War II veteran and hitman. Spanning across decades, we see life through Frank’s perspective while dealing with the big mystery of Jimmy Hoffa’s (played by Al Pacino) disappearance. According to Brandt, it was Frank who was Jimmy’s murderer. Hoffa disappeared in 1975 and declared dead in 1982. Now, we finally have the highly-awaited first look at The Irishman and it promises to be a gripping real-life drama on organised crime.
De-Aging Technology Used In The Irishman
VFX artists used de-aging digital effects, based on a technology first developed by Industrial Light & Magic, founded by George Lucas.
The digital de-aging technology used on the cast to make them look half their ages. It’s the same reason why The Irishman took as long to make. The end results are pretty impressive so far!
The number of years erased from 75-year-old De Niro is remarkable. De Niro is looking decades younger.

New York Film Festival will screen the movie for the first time on September 27, 2019.
