Filming Begins On Scorsese’s “Irishman”

A photo sent in to Bowery Boogie has confirmed that filming has begun on Martin Scorsese’s new Netflix original feature “The Irishman”.

Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Harvey Keitel and Joe Pesci star in the film about Frank Sheeran, a mob hitman allegedly involved in the death Jimmy Hoffa. The shoot this week apparently took place around New York’s Orchard St (near Broome St).

Along with this being Pacino’s first film with Scorsese, the movie will notably use digital effects to de-age De Niro as it charts Sheeran’s life over a long period. Filming is expected to continue through December ahead of a release on Netflix sometime in late 2018.
