On Monday, it was announced that Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman will premiere on opening night of the 57th New York Film Festival. Now, we’ve got the teaser trailer for the highly-anticipated movie, which will open in select theaters and stream on Netflix this fall.
Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci star in The Irishman, an epic saga of organized crime in post-war America told through the eyes of World War II veteran Frank Sheeran, a hustler and hitman who worked alongside some of the most notorious figures of the 20th century.
Spanning decades, the film chronicles one of the greatest unsolved mysteries in American history, the disappearance of legendary union boss Jimmy Hoffa, and offers a monumental journey through the hidden corridors of organized crime: its inner workings, rivalries and connections to mainstream politics.
The film also stars Harvey Keitel, Ray Romano, Bobby Cannavale, Anna Paquin, Stephen Graham, Stephanie Kurtzuba, Jack Huston, Kathrine Narducci, Jesse Plemons, Domenick Lombardozzi, Paul Herman, Gary Basaraba, and Marin Ireland.
Scorsese directed from a screenplay by Steven Zaillan and produced with De Niro, Jane Rosenthal, Emma Tillinger Koskoff, Irwin Winkler, Gerald Chamales, Gaston Pavlovich, and Randall Emmett.
The Irishman is based on the Charles Brandt novel I Heard You Paint Houses: Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran & Closing the Case on Jimmy Hoffa.
