Back in July we saw the first trailer for The Irishman. The film is the latest from Goodfellas, Taxi Driver, The Departed, Gangs of New York, and The Wolf of Wall Street director Martin Scorsese, and Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci all star.
The story unfolds over the course of multiple decades, and it chronicles the unsolved mystery surrounding the disappearance of Jimmy Hoffa. Click on over to the other side for the trailer, a synopsis, and some bonus goodies.
Well…let me start by wishing everyone a very happy Thanksgiving. None of these stories or our opinions matter without you visiting every day to check us out, and that is something we’re truly thankful for this year and hopefully many, many more to come.
Now, allow me to ruin your day, sadly.
While talking to MTV recently, Mark Wahlberg confirmed that he will be playing the lead role of Nathan Drake in the upcoming video game adaptation of Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, and that he and director David O. Russell hope to do that come summer. On the brighter side of things, Wahlberg reaffirmed something broke earlier this week by Cinematical, and that’s that he won’t be starring in the remake of The Crow that was reported recently and had everyone up in arms.
Unfortunately for fans of Drake’s Fortune, the absolute worst thing you could follow up the Crow news with is word that you’re going to play Nathan Drake. We found out last month that O. Russell would be directing the adaptation, and to be honest, it was a very exciting thing to hear about because the game is perfectly set up to become a movie. The only question was who would play Drake.
Before we get to the news…best headline ever, right? These are the things movie fans dream about hearing about.
In February of this year, word came out of the Berlin Film Festival that legendary director Martin Scorsesewas working on a new mob movie called The Irishman with Robert De Niro, re-teaming the duo responsible for creating one of the great mob movies of all time in Goodfellas. The only thing about this movie, was that it would be more of a reflection film, with an old mobster looking back on his life of crime. The movie will be based on the book I Heard You Paint Houses by Charles Brandt, which details the life of Frank “the Irishman” Sheeran — one of the prime suspects in the disappearance of Jimmy Hoffa — as told by the Irishman himself.
