In the midst of the Oscars tonight, Netflix revealed the first teaser trailer for Martin Scorsese’s new film “The irishman” which confirms a Fall debut for the title both in cinemas and online.
The teaser is essentially audio only with a bit of graphics work. Robert De Niro headlines as mob hitman Frank ‘The Irishman’ Sheeran, reputed to have carried out more than twenty-five murders. Al Pacino will portray infamously slain labor leader Jimmy Hoffa, while Joe Pesci is Pennsylvania Mafia boss Russell Bufalino.
Steve Zaillian penned the script based on Charles Brandt’s novel “I Heard You Paint Houses”.
