Al Pacino and Joe Pesci confirmed for The Irishman

Robert De Niro

Al Pacino and Joe Pesci will join Robert De Niro in crime drama The Irishman.

Directed by Martin Scorsese, Irishman will be De Niro’s ninth time working with the legendary auteur, and finds the actor playing renowned Mafia hitman Frank ‘The Irishman’ Sheeran.

Both Pacino and Pesci were rumoured to be involved, but De Niro confirmed it once and for all during an interview with MTV .

“We do have the one that we’re definitely doing,” he told them. “Me, Joe Pesci, Pacino and Marty Scorsese directing.”

We wonder if Scorsese will be looking to enlist Sharon Stone as well, considering she also worked with Pesci and De Niro on their last film together, 1995’s Casino
