The director’s gangster film, which unites Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci, was expected to arrive on Netflix at some stage this year, but thanks to one of its actors, fans now have a clearer idea when to expect it.
Speaking on the Joe Rogan podcast, Sebastian Maniscalco – who will play “Crazy Joe” Gallo – told the host the film will be released in October.
The story revolves around a hitman who may or may not have involved in the death of Jimmy Hoffa. If you aren’t familiar with the true story, Hoffa disappeared in 1975 at the age of 62. He was the President of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters and became involved with organized crime.
The movie’s budget exploded to $175 million, which beats the $150 million he spent on the effects-heavy Hugo. The reason The Irishman cost so much probably isn’t what you think. Paying Hollywood legends such as De Niro, Pacino, Pesci, and Keitel isn’t cheap, but the real cost is digitally aging the actors backward to play younger versions of themselves, according to Esquire.
