Netflix closing in on Martin Scorsese's 'The Irishman'

6 hours ago | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Stars align as streaming giant eyes its latest notable acquisition target.

In what was shaping up on Tuesday night to be a significant development, the digital titan was understood to be closing in on Martin Scorsese’s upcoming mob feature.

According to insiders, Netflix is negotiating to acquire worldwide rights to The Irishman in a deal believed to be in the $100m range.

It is understood the budget has shot up as Scorsese plans to use costly effects to render a younger version of his cast, which includes old collaborator Robert De Niro.

Stx International reportedly paid $50m last summer for international sales rights, while Paramount currently holds Us rights.

Martin Scorsese Will Bring The Irishman To Netflix

6 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Well, this is certainly surprising. After hearing that Martin Scorsese’s upcoming gangster movie, The Irishman, which will mark his ninth collaboration with Robert De Niro, was going to be heading to Paramount, Indiewire now reports that Netflix has swooped in to pick up it up. Sources say the studio got cold feet on the apparently “risky” project and backed out, allowing the streaming service to grab the worldwide rights to the $100 million epic.

Based off Charles’ Brandt’s novel I Heard You Paint Houses, the Steve Zaillian-scripted film will chronicle the life of “Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran, a mob hitman whose illustrious career is today best known for a supposed involvement in the death of Jimmy Hoffa.” This one’s been in development for a very long time now, so to see that there’s finally some tangible signs of progress being made is very encouraging.

Newswire: Netflix acquires Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro’s The Irishman

6 hours ago | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Variety reports that Netflix has acquired the rights to The Irishman, the latest collaboration between long-time friends Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro. Originally announced way back in 2010, the film is expected to start shooting later this year, and will be the ninth shared project between De Niro and his Raging Bull director. Based on Charles Brandt’s I Heard You Paint Houses, the film would cast De Niro as Frank Sheeran, the alleged contract killer who supposedly murdered labor leader Jimmy Hoffa.

Back when it was originally announced, the cast list for The Irishman read like a greatest hits of gangster movie stars, with Al Pacino and Joe Pesci both attached to co-star alongside De Niro. It’s not clear whether those deals are still in place seven years later, or if De Niro and Scorsese will be making their way to Netflix on their own.

Netflix Picks Up Martin Scorsese’s ‘The Irishman,’ Now Aiming for 2019 Release

8 hours ago | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

After developing Silence for decades — as his producer says, after each new film since the 1990s, it was always planned to be his next project — Martin Scorsese finally completed his priest drama and despite what award season or the box office suggest, it will go down as one of his greatest films. For his next feature, he’ll be tackling another long-developing project with The Irishman, but according to a new report, it will be unprecedented territory for the director, distribution-wise.

Initially picked up by Paramount, who was planning to release it domestically, as well as Media Asia who picked up Chinese distribution, and Stx Entertainment who has other international rights elsewhere, Indiewire reports a new deal has been made — and it is not with a theatrical distributor. Netflix has stepped in and grabbed worldwide rights, according to the outlet. “Scorsese’s movie is a risky deal, and Paramount is »

Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro’s ‘The Irishman’ Headed to Netflix — Exclusive

9 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In a sign of the ongoing power shift in Hollywood, Martin Scorsese’s $100-million gangster movie “The Irishman,” his ninth starring Robert De Niro, has been scooped up by Netflix, which is in the process of closing a deal to release the movie to its 93 million subscribers in 190 countries.

The movie was going to be backed by Paramount Pictures, but with its 12-year chairman Brad Grey heading out the door, Scorsese’s team put together another package. As someone close to the deal put it, “Scorsese’s movie is a risky deal, and Paramount is not in the position to take risks. This way, he can make the project he wants.”

We now live in a world where Netflix is in a better position than any major studio to make a Martin Scorsese-Robert DeNiro gangster movie. Netflix would not comment on the deal.

“I’ve never been more appreciative, humbled and just overall excited about the fact that I’ve been nominated,” says Hacksaw Ridge sound mixer Kevin O’Connell of his 21st Oscar nomination — which he shares with Peter Grace, Robert Mackenzie and Andy Wright — as we sit down at The Hollywood Reporter to record an episode of THR‘s ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast. “I don’t want to say I took it for granted in the past, but I certainly don’t take it for granted anymore.”

O’Connell, 59, has worked in Hollywood for nearly 40 years, and is one of the most respected practitioners of his craft. But he is best known for a dubious distinction: in Oscar history, no person has accumulated more nominations without ever winning. His noms span 33 years, from 1983’s Terms of Endearment through Mel Gibson‘s 2016 war film, »

“People want something that’s different than everything else that’s out there,” says Damien Chazelle, the writer and director of the massively acclaimed original musical La La Land, as we sit down at The Hollywood Reporter to record an episode of the ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast and try to get to the root of the phenomenal success of the film. Indeed, Chazelle’s bold third feature is beloved by critics (it has a 93% favorable rating on RottenTomatoes.com), audiences (it has grossed more than $340 million worldwide) and Academy members (it has been nominated for a record-tying 14 Oscars). The 32-year-old himself is Oscar-nominated for best director and best original screenplay, and if he wins the former, as is widely expected, he will break an 85-year-old record and become the category’s youngest winner ever.

Martin Scorsese Remembers Richard Schickel, ‘A Very Perceptive Critic and a Wonderful Writer’

20 February 2017 3:57 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Martin Scorsese has shared his thoughts on Richard Schickel, the influential film critic who passed away at 84 on Saturday. Schickel wrote dozens of books, most recently his 2015 memoir “Keepers: The Greatest Films — and Personal Favorites — of a Moviegoing Lifetime,” and served as film critic for Time from 1965–2010. Read Scorsese’s statement below.

Richard Schickel was a very perceptive critic and a wonderful writer and documentary filmmaker,” writes the filmmaker. “As a person he was, to use a once popular term, ‘crusty,’ and he could be brutally funny. But it’s his deep and abiding love of movies that I’ll always remember about him. His early 70s PBS series ‘The Men Who Made the Movies,’ his 2004 restoration of Sam Fuller’s ‘The Big Red One,’ his wonderful little book about ‘Double Indemnity, »

“I have this fundamental block — maybe I’ll always have it, maybe I’ll get past it — but I am essentially Chiron, I grew up like this kid and there are just certain ceilings that I never can imagine myself breaking through,” says Barry Jenkins, the writer and director of Moonlight, as we sit down in his downtown Los Angeles apartment to record an episode of The Hollywood Reporter‘s ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast. “When they happen,” the 37-year-old continues, “they genuinely are an extreme surprise. And for whatever reason, I can’t get through this block that Chiron does not grow up and make a film that gets eight Academy Award nominations.” He then pauses, smiles and quietly adds, “But I guess he does.”

What It’s Like Shooting A Martin Scorsese Film, According to Oscar Nominee Rodrigo Prieto

17 February 2017 9:43 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Shooting a movie with an icon like Martin Scorsese has to be a dream for any cinematographer, but it’s just another day at work for Rodrigo Prieto. The 51-year-old Mexican cinematographer rose to prominence lensing movies for Alejandro González Iñárritu and Ang Lee, but in the last several years he has emerged as the go-to Dp for none other than Scorsese. He’s been behind the camera for “The Wolf of Wall Street,” the “Vinyl” pilot and “Silence,” for which he’s Oscar nominated this year, and he’s now in production on “The Irishman.”

“On the one hand they are extremely close to me, and on the other hand they have nothing to do with me,” the actress Isabelle Huppert says of the many characters that she’s played, as we sit down at the San Ysidro Ranch near Santa Barbara to record an episode of The Hollywood Reporter‘s ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast. The Frenchwoman — an Oscar nominee for the first time, at the age of 63, for her portrayal of a rape survivor in Paul Verhoeven‘s 2016 French-language drama Elle — continues, “I have nothing to do with this woman from Elle who runs a video game company — I don’t even know myself how to work my computer — so I’m completely far from the character.

Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler Get Criminal in First Trailer for ‘The House’

16 February 2017 8:13 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

After their days on Saturday Night Live and (brief) team-ups in Blades of Glory and Anchorman 2, it’s surprising we haven’t seen more of Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler together on screen. They’ll finally be taking dual leading roles in this summer’s comedy The House and the first trailer has now landed. The film follows the husband-and-wife pair launching an underground casino in order to pay for their daughter’s college tuition.

“They’re dealing with the idea of being empty-nesters and what that’s going to do to their lives,” Ferrell tells EW. “We basically become Sharon Stone and Robert De Niro in Casino.” Judging from this first trailer, Jason Mantzoukas seems to be in top comedic form in a supporting role and hopefully Neighbors writer Andrew J. Cohen brings the same amount of laughs in his directorial debut.

Berlin — Madrid-based Latido Films, Oscar-winning Tornasol Films and Woody Allen producer Atresmedia Cine are re-teaming on Rodrigo Sorogoyen’s “El Reino,” starring Antonio de la Torre.

All five backed Sorogoyen’s latest 2016 release, “May God Save Us,” a harrowing serial killer thriller which, consolidating Sorogoyen’s reparation as a director to track, was distributed by Warner Bros. in Spain, won best screenplay at September’s San Sebastian Festival last year and was still racking up international sales for Latido at this week’s Berlin European Film Market.

The lead producer on “May God Save Us,” Gerardo Herrero and Mariela Besuievsky’s Tornasol Films, an arthouse institution in Spain, produced Juan Jose Campanella’s “The Secret in Their Eyes,” which won an Academy Award for best foreign-language film in 2009.
