The Irishman (2019) will mark the fourth time director Martin Scorsese has made an Italian Mafia movie, all which have happened to have Robert De Niro in major roles. I wanted to take this opportunity to have a look at Scorsese’s gangster pictures through the years, and explore The Irishman’s relationship with the previous films. Do we really need another mafia film? What can the upcoming crime film add to Scorsese’s résumé that hasn’t already been done?

I apologies for the drop in audio volume in the middle of the video.

The Irishman is an upcoming American biographical crime film directed by Martin Scorsese and written by Steven Zaillian, based on the book I Heard You Paint Houses: Frank ‘The Irishman’ Sheeran and the Inside Story of the Mafia, the Teamsters, and the Final Ride by Jimmy Hoffa by Charles Brandt. The film stars Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, Bobby Cannavale, Harvey Keitel, and Ray Romano. The film is tentatively set to be released by Netflix in 2019.
