This will be their ninth film together!
Martin Scorcese will team up with Robert De Niro for The Irishman, a film based on the Charles Brandt novel I Heard You Paint Houses, Irishman.
The movie, written by Steve Zallian, centers around union leader Frank Sheeran, who become a mob hitman. Al Pacino and Joe Pesci were once attached to the film, but it is known whether they are still on board for their roles.
The Irishman is currently undergoing financing and may shoot as early as next year.
