Netflix Acquires Martin Scorsese's 'The Irishman'
The project has been in development by their two companies - Scorsese's Sikelia Productions and De Niro's Tribeca Productions - for the better part of a decade. "This way, he can make the project he wants".
Welcome to 2017, where Martin Scorsese's long-awaited The Irishman, which will reunite him with Robert De Niro for the first time since 1995, is heading straight to Netflix. Sheeran, who died in 2003, also allegedly confessed to his involvement in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in addition to killing Jimmy Hoffa, a teamster leader who went missing during the summer of 1975.
5 things to know about the SpaceX launch
Shortly after launch, Central Florida residents might hear an explosion-like sound as the rocket returns to land on the coast. SpaceX is back in action and has successfully completed a historic launch from Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
Steve Zaillian adapted The Irishman from Charles Brandt's book, I Heard You Paint Houses, which chronicles the exploits of Frank Sheeran, a high-ranking Teamsters official with ties to the Bufalino crime family. The fact that Scorsese's latest film, the well-reviewed by awkwardly-marketed passion project Silence, brought in a dismal take at the box office and not a single Oscar nomination, only worked to Netflix's benefit.
De Niro, 73, is expected to be transformed to look 30 years old for the film, which will also reportedly co-star Al Pacino.

After establishing hit original TV shows like Orange is the New Black and House of Cards, Netflix has been forcefully entering the original film space in a major way.
On one hand, Scorsese teaming with a producer/distributor that can likely provide his entire $100 million budget with no questions asked is a plus. In a bidding war with Lionsgate, Fox and Universal, "The Irishman" sold for $50 million to rising studio STX Entertainment. Unlike Amazon, Netflix's streaming rival which releases its films in theaters before they appear online, Netflix releases the films it distributes online the same day as in theaters. Netflix has not yet commented on the deal.
