Anna Paquin has joined the cast of Martin Scorsese’s “The Irishman” for Netflix. Paquin will play Peggy, the daughter of Robert DeNiro’s leading man.
Based on Charles Brandt’s book “I Heard You Paint Houses,” the story follows Frank ‘The Irishman’ Sheeran (Al Pacino), a mobster who carried out dozens of hits including the death of teamster boss Jimmy Hoffa (Pacino).
Al Pacino, Harvey Keitel, Joe Pesci, Ray Romano, Jack Huston and Bobby Cannavale also star in the film which Scorsese, De Niro and Jane Rosenthal are producing. Steve Zaillian penned the script and filming is now underway in New York City ahead of a release on Netflix sometime in 2018.
