Scorsese's 'The Irishman' starring De Niro, Pacino, Pesci and Keitel might start shooting in February

Want to know what Scorsese will follow-up 'Silence' with? A jog down memory lane, with some of the greatest actors from some of his greatest movies, oh, and Al Pacino as well. 

Long-time Scorsese Production-Designer Dante Ferretti has told Variety that 'The Irishman,' which has been in the works since 2010, could roll out as early as February:

“We’ve talked about it;  but we still have to see when and how it will be shot. I never say ‘I’m doing to do this or that’ until it’s signed. Theoretically we’ve talked about shooting this film next year in February or March,” he said.

Steve Zaillian (“Gangs Of New York,” “Schindler’s List,” “Moneyball,“ “The Night Of“), is helming the screenplay for this one, which is based on the book “I Heard You Paint Houses” by Charles Brandt. Zaillian is a hot commodity these days after writing and directing the best TV series of 2016, HBO's brilliant dissection of the justice system "The Night Of."

"The Irishman"  tells the story of Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran — a hitman tied to the Bufalino crime family that was a high ranking officer in the international brotherhood of teamsters, was tied to a possible plot in the JFK assassination and who claimed, on his deathbed, to have murdered Teamster leader and iconic cold case Jimmy Hoffa.
