For those of you who are not fans of Goodfellas, Raging Bull, Casino – and of course, the epic classic Heat – read no further.
For those of you who are fans of the films listed above, get ready to have the same reaction you had when production on a little film called The Departed was announced:
It seems Mr. DeNiro, Mr. Pesci – AND Mr. Pacino (this news from another source as of today, which I’m trying to find more details on) – have been cast in Mr. Scorsese’s next film, The Irishman, about a WWII vet who becomes a mob hitman, based on a novel. Scorsese’s movie is not to be confused with Kill the Irishman, which looks equally exciting and impeccable and stars my old friend Ray Stevenson (you might remember him as Titus Pullo from HBO’s Rome?):
Please excuse me, but I am going to have to go take a walk to contain my excitement. Thanks for reading!
