Al Pacino And Joe Pesci Circling Martin Scorsese And Robert De Niro Mob Movie

It's Goodfellas meets Casino meets Heat. So if you're a fan of those great crime movies, get ready: I'm told Al Pacino and Joe Pesci are now circling The Irishman, the mob drama that Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro have been working on together based on the exploits of mob hitman Frank "The Irishman" Sheeran as chronicled in the book I Heard You Paint Houses. The pic's being developed at Paramount by De Niro and Jane Rosenthal's Tribeca Productions.

Pacino has worked with De Niro in the Michael Mann-directed classic Heat, as well as Righteous Kill. Pesci and De Niro of course teamed with Scorsese on Goodfellas, Casino and Raging Bull. Steve Zaillian wrote the script.

Right now, Scorsese's off directing the 3D Hugh Cabret for GK Films, and this is one of a couple pictures he's considering next. Others include Silence, based on the Shusako Endo novel. Scorsese and GK Films nearly had the pic together with Benicio Del Toro, Daniel Day-Lewis and Gabriel Garcia Bernal in the Jay Cocks-scripted saga of Jesuits who face danger as they preach Christianity and try to find their mentor in 17th Century Japan. Scorsese will be in New York Wednesday as HBO premieres the pilot he directed for Boardwalk Empire, which is superb.


 
Shaking and crying right now - OH MY GOD! Please let this be true!
