Scorsese/DeNiro To Re-Unite?

I figured I'd just post this here.

First Pacino and DeNiro are teaming up again. Then, Marty and DeNiro. Good stuff.

Frankie Machine seems to be his next project according to that article.

It looks great, and I aint against another collaberation between De Niro and Marty.

I would like to see some gritty sci fi, that would be awasome.

The subject matter of this film looks fantastic though. Different yet similar ground.
To read some original works by me, please ask, I need the feedback!

I Heard You Paint Houses

Postby TheButcher on Thu Oct 02, 2008 7:45 am

From /film: Scorsese to Direct De Niro in I Heard You Paint Houses
From Latino Reviw: De Niro Returns To Gangster Role With Scorsese.
Paramount Pictures is plotting a return to organized crime for Martin ScorseseRobert De Niro. Studio has set Steve Zaillian to adapt "I Heard You Paint Houses," the book about the mob assassin who many believe was involved in the death of Teamster boss Jimmy Hoffa.

Scorsese is attached to direct. De Niro will play Frank "the Irishman" Sheeran, who is reputed to have carried out more than 25 mob murders. Pic will be produced by Scorsese and Tribeca partners De Niro and Jane Rosenthal. Project landed at Paramount through the overall deal that the studio has with Scorsese’s Sikelia Prods.

Pic’s title refers to mob slang for contract killings, and the resulting blood splatter on walls and floors. Book was written by Charles Brandt, who befriended Sheeran shortly before the latter’s death in 2003. Among the crimes Sheeran confessed to Brandt, according to the 2004 book, was the killing and dismemberment of Hoffa, carried out on orders from mob boss Russell Bufalino.

From THR:
Scorsese hints at De Niro mafia pic
Borys Kit wrote:BERLIN -- Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio tried to keep the focus on "Shutter Island," but the assembled press weren't always on the same page at Saturday's news conference at the Hyatt.

One man made a plea for Scorsese to help actor Nick Nolte, who has fallen from Hollywood's graces in recent years, while a Spanish filmmaker pitched himself to DiCaprio, saying he wanted to give him his card.

Other questions that seemed to annoy the moderator included one from a lady who asked DiCaprio to say something in German (the actor does speak some in the movie). And one reporter from Kurdish TV asked, "When are you going to make your next big Mafioso film, something like 'Goodfellas 2'?"

After initially laughing off the query, Scorsese said he had nothing more to add to the genre before revealing that he and Robert De Niro were talking about "something that has to do with that world. No doubt about it. But it's from the vantage point of older men looking back."

The panelists, which also included actors Mark Ruffalo, Michelle Williams and Ben Kingsley as well as producers Brad Fischer, Mike Medavoy and Arnold Messer, did manage to keep a good chunk of the presser on point, for example tackling the movie's theme of fear and paranoia, and how it related to the 1950s setting.

The movie is based on a novel by Dennis Lehane and Scorsese and DiCaprio said that, while they did read the book, it was the script that first got their attention.

"To be honest, it was the emotional impact I had reading the last two scenes (that got me hooked)," Scorsese said.

Actors like Williams and Ruffalo, however, said they looked to the book for a deeper understanding of their characters, trying to find nuggets that helped with the psychology of the roles.

"It does some of the work for you," Williams said.

Martin Scorsese, Robert De Niro to Reunite for 'The Irishman'
Philiana Ng wrote:Martin Scorsese will be working with Robert De Niro -- again.

This time, the film director and actor will team up for the crime drama The Irishman, Scorsese confirmed at BAFTA's Life in Pictures Q&A that Digital Spy reported.

The Oscar-winning director said that the project is currently going through financing and that filming could begin next year.

The Irishman is based on the novel I Heard You Paint Houses by Charles Brandt, which centers on a union official-turned-hitman Frank "The Irishman" Sheeran.

Scorsese also revealed that Gangs of New York and Cape Fear screenwriter Steve Zallian was penning the script.

The possible Scorsese-De Niro team-up was rumored in September.

Scorsese and De Niro's first movie was Mean Streets in 1973, which led to more projects together, including: Taxi Driver; New York, New York; Raging Bull; The King of Comedy; Goodfellas; and Casino.

Scorsese's next project Hugo Cabret, which stars Chloe Moretz and Sacha Baren Cohen is in theaters Dec. 9, 2011.

Kill the Irishman is likely the movie you're thinking about.

Haven't Marty and Bobby done all the Gangster/crime/mob stuff to death though? It's getting a little predictable, boring and lazy for me now. How about something a little different? Like they did with The King Of Comedy or something.
Never thought I'd say it, but Scorsese + De Niro + crime movie = mmmm. ok. pass the popcorn please.

I'd be up for this if it's done differently. A personal movie that just centres on one man. Don't do a glorified fucking documentary that Goodfellas and Casino was like. Give me a damn real film score that moves me, not a darn Rolling Stones soundtrack. Make a FILM!

Make it internal and self reflecting and self examining. Raging Gull was so intoxicating as it just kept on doing this more and more. We're talking about a Hit Man that murders people. It's hard to sympathise or care for such a person you'd think. But do what you can to get our interest in him. Make it psychological, absorbing. And make Robert De Niro push himself again and start acting like he did in his glory days, not be this studly lazy bored to be there Bastard that he's been in the last 10 odd years.

De Niro Confirms I Heard You Paint Houses With Scorsese, Pacino And Pesci
Perri Nemiroff wrote:For anyone that keeps an eye on movie development news, you know that sometimes stars say things that aren’t exactly true or talk about potential projects that aren’t guarantees in the least. Well, that’s kind of what we have here, but the fact that the news comes from Robert De Niro certainly gives the information a great deal of authenticity. When the guy talks, you just believe him.

We heard a little about Martin Scorsese’s plan to direct a film version of Charles Brandt’s book I Heard You Paint Houses with De Niro starring, way back in October 2008. Since then, it’s merely been rumblings of Joe Pesci and Al Pacino’s potential involvement. Well, now the foursome seems like a sure thing because while promoting his upcoming film Limitless, De Niro flat out said:

It’s a movie based on a book called I Heard You Paint Houses. It’s about a guy who is - and I believe the book – says he’s now passed away, but he confessed that he killed Hoffa and also Joe Gallo over here on Hester Street. And so I’m going to play that character, Joe Pesci’s gonna be in it and Al Pacino is going to be in it and Marty’s going to direct it.


Still not quite convinced? De Niro had a feeling. The actor also added, “I’d never say it if I didn’t really fully have us all, you know, committed.”

De Niro didn’t mention when the camera might start rolling, but when it does, he’ll be playing Frank “the Irishman” Sheeran, a man who put his violent side to use during World War II only to return to the states to become a hit man working closely with notorious mob boss Russell Bufalino. It’s Bufalino that put Sheeran in touch with Jimmy Hoffa, kicking off their friendship. When Hoffa disappeared, Sheeran was a top suspect.

The materials are there, the film’s got a fantastic director and cast, now we’ve just got to wait for that green light. While I’m always hesitant of being prematurely optimistic, who argues with De Niro? My money is on this film happening sooner rather than later.

William Friedkin Q&A: ’70s Maverick Revisits A Golden Era With Tales Of Glory And Reckless Abandon
EXCLUSIVE: The maverick director on 'Sorcerer,' Don Winslow’s 'The Winter Of Frankie Machine' and other war stories way too good not to be told

William Friedkin To Direct Don Winslow Novel ‘The Winter Of Frankie Machine’
Mike Fleming Jr wrote:EXCLUSIVE:
William Friedkin will develop to direct The Winter Of Frankie Machine, an adaptation of the 2007 Don Winslow bestselling novel that once had Martin Scorsese and then Michael Mann attached to direct, and Robert De Niro attached to star. The project, which shook free of Paramount some time ago, hasn’t yet been set up anywhere. They’ll start fresh with a script that Winslow will either write or co-write. This comes after Winslow made a monster Fox deal for his current bestseller The Cartel, which continued the characters from Winslow’s 2006 novel The Power Of The Dog. The commitment to book rights and writing fees was around $6 million and Ridley Scott is aboard to direct a script that is being written by Shane Salerno, who co-wrote one of the Avatar sequels with James Cameron. Fox is courting Leonardo DiCaprio to play DEA agent Art Keller, whose blood feud with Mexican cartel kingpin Adan Berrera fuels a story that covers the start of the war on drugs and brings it to the present. For Winslow, getting Friedkin on his book is a dream. He “made the decision to become a writer after seeing The French Connection,” he said. “That how strong of an impact it had on me.”

Martin Scorsese Extends Paramount Deal to 2019
Dave McNary wrote:Martin Scorsese’s Sikelia Productions has extended its overall feature deal with Paramount Pictures through 2019.

“Marty is one of our industry’s most prolific and celebrated filmmakers and he is also an integral part of the Paramount family,” said Paramount Chairman and CEO Brad Grey. “We are looking forward to many more years and many more great films at Paramount Pictures.”

The partnership has resulted in “The Wolf of Wall Street,” “Shutter Island,” “Hugo” and the Rolling Stones documentary “Shine a Light.”

Paramount will release Scorsese’s historical drama “Silence,” starring Liam Neeson and Andrew Garfield, with Scorsese producing and directing. Jay Cocks and Scorsese wrote the screenplay for the film, which has not set a release date.

The studio said the deal covers development of “The Devil in the White City,” directed by Scorsese, with Leonardo DiCaprio starring and producing with Jennifer Davisson. The movie is written by Billy Ray based on Erik Larson’s novel “The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic and Madness at the Fair That Changed America.”

Scorsese and the studio are also developing a biopic of composer and conductor Leonard Bernstein that Scorsese will direct and produce, along with Fred Berner and Amy Durning for Fred Berner Films, from a screenplay by Josh Singer (“Spotlight”). They’re also working on “The Irishman,” directed by Scorsese and starring Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci and Al Pacino. It’s written by Steve Zaillian, based on the novel “I Heard You Paint Houses: Frank ‘The Irishman’ Sheeran and the Inside Story of the Mob, the Teamsters, and the Last Ride of Jimmy Hoffa.”

Paramount Television is collaborating with Scorsese on HBO’s upcoming drama series, “Vinyl,” debuting in 2016. Set in 1970s New York, the show is seen through the eyes of a record label president played by Bobby Cannavale, who is trying to save his music company at the dawn of punk, disco and hip-hop. It will be executive produced by Scorsese, Mick Jagger, Terence Winter, Rick Yorn, Victoria Pearman, Emma Tillinger Koskoff, John Melfi and Allen Coulter.

Paramount has more than a dozen other first-look deals, including pacts with Michael Bay, Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Jerry Bruckheimer and Mary Parent, along with David Ellison’s co-financing deal.

So in my dream, this movie happens with all of them, it turns out to be great, and Pacino and DeNiro retire on top of their game (no more Fockers or Bad Granpas).

Unfortunately most of my dream won't come true. This is really tired material for all of these dudes.

Cannes: Martin Scorsese’s ‘The Irishman’ Has Buyers Frustrated and Salivating (EXCLUSIVE)
Brent Lang wrote:Rights to Martin Scorsese’s big-budget period drama “The Irishman” could be made available in the next 24 hours, turbocharging a Cannes market that has been slow going over the first three days.

Mexican producer/financier Fabrica de Cine has offered to finance the $100 million production, but the film, which would star Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci, has to be taken out of turnaround from Paramount. As part of the deal, Paramount would retain domestic rights.

Vice Chairman Rob Moore is driving a hard bargain on the exact deal points, sources say. One knowledgeable individual said Fabrica is frustrated to the point of tearing its hair out, since negotiations have dragged on for over a month. The expectation was that the rights would be unraveled by the time that Cannes started this week.

Should the project be made available, there are a number of parties that have expressed interest in buying the international rights. On the studio side, Lionsgate, Universal, and STX Entertainment are among those circling the package.

There are also sales companies that are anxious to bid for the rights, among them IM Global, which has a relationship with Scorsese from their collaboration on his upcoming $50 million religious drama “Silence,” and Bloom, Alex Walton’s new shingle. The potential buyers are chomping at the bit, because there are few star-driven films of this size and stature available to buy.

The film is a mobster biopic set in the 1970s. De Niro, whose role is said to be the standout, is particularly interested in having the film get made. It would reunite him with Scorsese and Pesci for the first time since 1995’s “Casino” and would mark the director’s first collaboration with Pacino. “The Irishman” would use digital technology to make the actors age backwards, as in “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.” A script has been circulating for several years.

Some sources, however, question if this project will simply remain a festival “phantom,” tantalizingly out of reach, because of the difficulty of extricating the rights from Paramount.

A spokesperson for Paramount could not be reached for comment.

“The Irishman” is based on the Charles Brandt book “I Heard You Paint Houses,” which is the deathbed confession from mob hitman Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran about his role in the disappearance and death of Jimmy Hoffa. Steve Zaillian adapted the book for the screen.

more like, "We now live in a world where you can't see a Scorsese-DeNiro gangster movie on the big screen any more."

It's yuuuuuuuge.

Scorsese had actually re-upped his contract with Paramount last year, but rumors are the box-office failure of Silence contributed to studio head Brad Grey getting fired. It'll be interesting to see if the carte blanche he's given with Netflix results in a good film.

Re: Ray Romano is Martin Scorsese's Irishman

THR JULY 13, 2017:
Ray Romano Joins Robert De Niro, Al Pacino in Martin Scorsese's 'The Irishman' (Exclusive)
Borys Kit wrote:The pricey Netflix feature is based on the book by Charles Brandt.
Ray Romano, currently starring in the critically acclaimed hit The Big Sick, is reuniting with Martin Scorsese, signing ono to join the high-wattage cast of The Irishman.

Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, Harvey Keitel and Bobby Cannavale are in various stages of dealmaking to board the pricey Netflix feature, which is based on the book by Charles Brandt, I Heard You Paint Houses: Frank "The Irishman" Sheeran and the Inside Story of the Mafia, the Teamsters, and the Final Ride by Jimmy Hoffa.

De Niro is portraying Sheeran, the tough Irishman hitman who is said to have carried out over 25 mob murders, including that of legendary Teamster head Hoffa (Pacino).

Romano will play Bill Bufalino, a Teamster lawyer with ties to the mob.

The movie, budgeted at over $100 million as it covers several decades of the characters’ lives, is due to begin lensing in August.

Jane Rosenthal and Emma Tillinger Koskoff are producing. Steve Zaillian wrote the script.

Romano is having a major moment this summer. The Big Sick, in which he stars with Kumail Nanjiani, has garnered excellent reviews and has become the specialty hit of the summer (the movie is set to platform to a wide release this weekend). Romano also stars in Get Shorty, Epix’s upcoming TV adaptation of the 1995 hit film that skewered Hollywood. Romano’s Irishman casting adds to his sunny summer.

The actor, who previously worked with Scorsese when he starred on the HBO series Vinyl, is repped by ICM Partners, manager Rory Rosegarten and law firm Del Shaw.

blech. DeNiro and Pacino need to go away and retire already. lets face it, neither are the great actors that their mythology makes them out to be anyway. they were good at playing a pretty narrow range when they were on, and when they were off they were just as bad as any other actor taking a job for the $. Pacino is just sad these days, that fucking hair is embarrassing. plus, no one wants to see movies about a bunch of shady Italian hoods anymore. it has been done to death and then some. and to that point, why the fuck is this movie getting made? not because there is any important story being told or niche being exposed or new actor being given their shot. nope. this is some old guys doing the same old thing yet again because they have the privilege in the industry to do so. Tyler Perry gets made fun of for making his movies but you know what, more people watch them than will watch this lame excuse of a movie, I guarantee it. no one is making fun of Pacino and DeNiro for the bad movies they have made, but Tyler Perry is Black, and DeNiro and Pacino are white. well. Italian, close enough.


Ray Romano? go away and live off the money from that weak fucking show you milked for years or go back to doing the voice for Snuffleupagus :-P

yeah, and when you think Irish, you think Pacino, DeNiro, and Ray Romano, right? of course, irish/Italian, they go together like peanut butter and jelly don't they? in yet another organized crime movie. where they sentimentalize killing and extortion and the rest of the "good old days', right? the genre needs to fucking die already. it is just one more sign of how Hollywood is still run by old white guys

yeah, well, when you've seen one Marty Scorsese/DeNiro/Pacino mob movie you've pretty much seen them all. and this is coming form someone who loves most of them. shit, "Good Fellas" was one of the most impactful movie watching experiences of my life. but come on, this is a fucking movie about a mob hit man telling stories about the old days when he took part in getting rid of Jimmy fucking Hoffa. how cliché mob story can you get???
