About The Irishman:
Martin Scorseses new project The Irishman will reunite Scorsese with Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci, and it marks his first film with Al Pacino. De Niro will play Frank Sheeran, a high-ranking Teamsters official with ties to the Bufalino crime family. Shortly before his death in 2003, Sheeran confessed that he killed fellow Teamster leader Jimmy Hoffa, whose body has never been found. He also claimed that it was Hoffa who wanted John F. Kennedy killed.
The Irishman was written by the Gangs of New York writer Steve Zaillin and based on the Charles Brandts best-selling book I Heard You Paint Houses: Frank The Irishman Sheeran & Closing the Case on Jimmy Hoffa.
