Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro team up for “The Irishman” (IrishCentral)

27 December 2010 4:30 AM, PST | IrishCentral | See recent IrishCentral news »

Fresh from his box office disappointment with "Little Fockers,” Robert De Niro will team up with Martin Scorsese in yet another Irish-themed movie for the acclaimed director. Scorsese’s recent films have included “The Departed” about Irish cops and corruption in Boston, “Gangs of New York” about the Irish in Civil War-era New York City, and now “the Irishman” about an Irish mafia hit man. The film is based on the book “I Heard You Paint Houses” by former prosecutor and Chief Deputy Attorney General of the State of Delaware Charles Brandt, which told of the exploits of Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran, a mob hitman who confessed to Brandt that he killed Jimmy Hoffa. The story will be adapted for the screen by Steve Zallian, who also worked with Scorsese on “Gangs of New York.” “The Irishman” will mark the ninth time Scorsese and De Niro have teamed up. The »

The Best Blu-ray Discs of 2010

25 December 2010 7:19 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Best Contemporary Titles

Winner: "Avatar: Extended Edition"

Runner-up: "Inception"

Doesn't matter what you thought of the film, I enjoyed it but didn't particularly love it, James Cameron fully delivers on his promise to make the 'Extended Edition' Blu-ray release worth the double-dip as it has to be one the single deepest and richest releases for a single film on the market.

The transfer is pure reference quality, the inserted new footage in the three alternate cuts available is exactly the same quality as the rest of the cut, and the sound design is awe-inspiring. Extras are disgustingly rich - three near feature-length docos, nearly an hour of cut footage, countless featurettes, artwork and a beautiful looking if a tiny bit awkwardly designed packaged set.

Picking a runner-up wasn't that difficult. Christopher Nolan's puzzle box of a film "Inception" is a trippy but whip smart and bold heist film »

New Miramax: What Do We Know? Lang and Weinsteins Partner on Sequels

16 December 2010 11:27 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

What do we know about the new Miramax, which has finally closed its $660 million deal to separate from previous owner Disney? What's left of the company the Weinsteins left behind when they left Disney five years ago? The old offices and staff are gone. It's basically a library (My Left Foot, Pulp Fiction, Good Will Hunting, The Aviator, Gangs of New York, Chicago, The Crying Game, The Piano, sex, lies and videotape, Clerks among the 700 titles--check out this montage), with several outstanding movies, such as Guillermo del Toro's production Don't be Afraid of the Dark and John Madden's The Debt, starring Helen Mirren, still to be sold to distributors (I hear Focus will release it).

Robert De Niro confirms Scorsese’s The Irishman Films Next Year!

15 December 2010 3:06 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Updated: Matt here, updating Neil’s post from yesterday with exciting news! Doing the press rounds for Little Fockers – Hollywood legend Robert De Niro has confirmed Martin Scorsese’s gangster film The Irishman (based on the book I Heard You Paint Houses) featuring De Niro acting alongside Joe Pesci and Al Pacino once again films next year!

“[W]e do have the one that we’re definitely doing. Me, Joe Pesci, Pacino and Marty Scorsese directing… We have a very good script that Steven Zaillian [American Gangster, Schlinder's List] wrote, and that we’re definitely doing,”.

Wow!

De Niro explains the more ambitious idea of a two-parter film, the latter of which written by Eric Roth (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) and that would star De Niro and Scorsese in a Quasi-biopic of their actor/director working relationship may be a little off;

“The other idea is more ambitious, to do one with Eric »

Martin Scorsese’s ‘The Irishman’ With Robert DeNiro and Joe Pesci Could Shoot Next Year

13 December 2010 11:24 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Martin Scorsese is a man who does not stop. He started the year 2010 at the age of 67 and managed to bring us four projects he directed, all of them either great or at least pretty damn good (those being Shutter Island, the pilot for Boardwalk Empire, and TV documentaries A Letter to Elia and Public Speaking). His upcoming schedule is also busy, with his first 3D film Hugo Cabret and his George Harrison documentary both slated for release in 2011, and the latter of which I may be anticipating more than any other movie coming out in the next few years.

In addition to those he has The Irishman, the film adaptation of I Heard You Paint Houses, the true story of Frank “The Irishman” Sheehan, who is said to have been a hitman for the mafia and apparently has ties to the deaths of both Jimmy Hoffa and John F. Kennedy, »

13 December 2010 9:15 AM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Director Martin Scorsese has a habit of working alongside the same actors for a multitude of different projects. But not all habits should be broken, especially when Scorsese is working with actors as talented as, say, Leonardo DiCaprio.

For a future project, Scorsese is turning his attention towards a tried and true face in his stable of ever-reliable actors: Robert De Niro. Digital Spy confirms an earlier MTV News scoop that Scorsese and De Niro are joining forces for "The Irishman," based on the novel "I Heard You Paint Houses."

The news comes straight from Scorsese's mouth, as the director "revealed that the project is currently going through financing, and shooting could begin as early as next year." He also revealed that "Gangs of New York" and "Cape Fear" screenwriter Steve Zallian is working on the script.

De Niro and Scorsese Reunite For ‘The Irishman’

13 December 2010 8:18 AM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

“Step aside, kid, and see how it’s done.”

That’s what Robert De Niro will soon be saying to Leonardo DiCaprio as he reunites with director Martin Scorsese for the epic crime drama, “The Irishman.”

The Irishman,” based on the novel “I Heard You Paint Houses” by Charles Brandt, tells the story of Frank Sheeran, a union official turned mob hitman, according to Total Film. The film will be the ninth collaboration for De Niro and Scorsese, and their first since 1995′s “Casino.”

De Niro was Scorsese’s muse for the first half of the director’s career, having appeared in “Mean Streets,” “Taxi Driver,” “Raging Bull” and “Goodfellas,” among others. Scorsese segued into working regularly with Leonardo DiCaprio for the second half of his career, starting with 2002′s “Gangs of New York.”

And, in the middle, there was Nicolas Cage in “Bringing Out the Dead,” a “transitional” project if there ever was one. »

In Contention: Kris Tapley chats with “Shutter Island” best director hopeful Martin Scorsese and best actor hopeful Leonardo DiCaprio about their work on that film, as well as their three prior collaborations — “Gangs of New York” (2002), “The Aviator” (2004), and “The Departed” (2006) — each of which snagged best picture nods at a time when the category had only five slots. DiCaprio recalls, “At 18 years old, I remember having a conversation with my father and we talked about opportunities that were going to come up and he said, ‘You know, there’s really one guy [Scorsese], if you ever get the opportunity to work for him, you have to go for it.’ So I really researched the films that he was going to do and films that he wanted to do.” Scorsese adds, “It’s very rewarding for me to have a collaborator at this stage in my life, particularly someone who is 30 years »
