We have a more ambitious idea, hopefully, to make it a two-part type of film or two films…It’s an idea that came about from Eric Roth to combine these movies using the footage from ‘Paint Houses’ to do another kind of a [film that is] reminiscent of a kind of ‘8 1/2,’ ‘La Dolce Vita,’ [a] certain kind of biographical, semi-biographical type of Hollywood movie — a director and the actor — based on things Marty and I have experienced and kind of overlapping them.I know Scorsese would really like to make SILENCE, based on the Shusako Endo book about Jesuits in 17th Century Japan - and I'd love to see that, too. But this two-tiered approach to THE IRISHMAN sounds like movie buff heaven. Who wouldn't want to see this? Not to worry, though, 'cuz it'll never happen. Ever.

Has there been some kind of falling out that I don't know about? And Scorsese + Pacino is an idea whose time has come...
Sept. 13, 2010, 5:46 p.m. CST
Seriously. Just do the exact same scene from Goodfellas again.
Sept. 13, 2010, 5:52 p.m. CST
De Niro, Pacino, Pesce, and Scorsese. Maybe it's an ironic title?
Sept. 13, 2010, 5:55 p.m. CST
we are like an old married couple. we have a lot of happy memories but we no longer share the marital bed. in other words, deniro and scorsese will never work together again. Marty S dumped deniro and is no working with Leo.
Sept. 13, 2010, 6:07 p.m. CST
And getting back with the old team De Niro and Pesci for one more mob movie. And Pacino too! Please let this happen. <p>The Departed was a cartoon movie and even ol' Jack couldn't save it. It lacked all the rawness of Mean Streets, Goodfellas, and the massively underrated Casino, yet it was being praised left, right and center as if it was the equal of those films. Bullshit. Nothing good has come of Scorsese and Di Caprio's love-in. Di Caprio is a bland mannequin out of his depth in any kind of adult role, and even Inception would have been greatly improved without him. He's a boy trying to do a man's job, even though he's 35.<p>And get Scorsese on Silence, too. That's his dream project. Marty hasn't made a good film since Casino, nor even a daring one since Kundun. Maybe with these projects he'll start to become interesting again.
Sept. 13, 2010, 6:10 p.m. CST
...is a bloody masterpiece. That is all.
Sept. 13, 2010, 6:17 p.m. CST
DeNiro is half Irish (his mom). And, don't forget that his character in "Goodfellas",Jimmy Conway, was also Irish. The others? Who knows who or what they'll play.<p> Hell, I never though "Italian" when I heard J. Carrol Nash, Burt Lancaster or James Caan either. I believe that's why they refer to it as acting ;-)
Sept. 13, 2010, 6:25 p.m. CST
I'd love to see the alleged 4 hour cut of Gangs thats circulating in the bootleg world out there. I was kind of "meh" about that movie when it first came out, but it has really grown in me in the last few years and I consider it a brilliant masterpiece now.
Sept. 13, 2010, 6:31 p.m. CST
Typical PR bullshit. He said it didn't exist and that he was happy with the existing cut. Don't believe it for a second. No director wants you to think his work has been compromised. But it definitely exists and would probably be a better film, though it still stars Di Crapio which means it's always gonna be less than it could have been.
Sept. 13, 2010, 6:40 p.m. CST
and I quote: "De Niro's father was of Italian and Irish descent, and his mother was of German, French, and Dutch ancestry." he's a quarter irish. but who the fuck is counting? just setting the record straight from those mooks who post one line like its out of the fucking constitution and the rest of us should follow.
Sept. 13, 2010, 6:42 p.m. CST
I'd LOVE to see another crime film based on real events by Scorsese, De Niro and Pesci (making a trilogy on Goodfellas & Casino), but point one: Scorsese seems to have lost De Niro's phone number (he should have been in The Departed), and two: he is shooting his first 3D movie. Let me repeat that, a 3D fantasy film by Martin Scorsese. The guy who made Taxi Drive is LONG GONE. In his place, we got a post 2003 Spielberg who likes quick cuts.

It has to be one of the slowest, least visual stories I've ever read. I can barely even remember what happens in it; I just retain a few images of peasants eating seaweed or something, people getting tortured and a priest in a kimono. Who would see this movie? I can't see it ever working; it strikes me as a guaranteed failure.

that these guys stopped making good movies quite a while ago. Pacino and DeNiro have been playing it safe for well over a decade and haven't pushed themselves. Anybody see Righteous Kill? What a waste. They should have chewed up the scenery but there was no chemistry between them at all. Their characters were supposed to be best friends, but it never felt that way. Stupendous disappointment. It would be best if this project never happened, because it will be a letdown. As for Pesci, does anybody really care about him? He plays one character and we've seen it a hundred times. He has the acting range of kelp.
Sept. 13, 2010, 7:37 p.m. CST
it's an amazing book, but I just don't know how you sell that to a studio. it would be a 2 hour film about characters questioning god, with like 20 minutes of actually functional plot points.
Sept. 13, 2010, 8:04 p.m. CST
Add him in and you got five aces.
Sept. 13, 2010, 8:11 p.m. CST
Quit griping about RIGHTEOUS KILL and give WHAT JUST HAPPENED a viewing. He's still a great actor...IF he has the material. If he does that stupid third FOCKERS movie, then he damn well better do the Scorsese movie...cause he'll owe us!
Sept. 13, 2010, 8:35 p.m. CST
Forget Pesci, splash the money and get Nicholson in there. He's the best leading actor of the last forty years and the electricity between him and De Niro in The Last Tycoon was electrifying, if under-utilised. And the prospect of him and Pacino in a scene together is mouth-watering.<p>What's that, the story doesn't call for it? Well let them make something else. Let's face it, none of them have too many movies left in them and it's now or never. They need to just bite the bullet and sign on the line that is dotted.
Sept. 13, 2010, 8:57 p.m. CST
Sept. 13, 2010, 8:58 p.m. CST
An extremely silly performance. Jack just phones in his persona most of the time now. Now 70's Nicholson - that was an actor.
Sept. 13, 2010, 9:01 p.m. CST
Too long to have him out of the game (isn't he also coming out with a movie about him being a pimp in the near future?) And to have DeNiro and Scorcesse working together again? Cinephile heaven! DeCaprio just ain't no DeNiro. I don't hate DeCaprio, I just find he's too pretty to play the tough-guy part. His talent is fantastic, he's a great actor, but I just don't find his pretty-boy looks threatening enough for all the characters Scorcese wants him to play. Departed was an okay movie (I actually rank it below Bringing Out the Dead, though), but they only gave it the Oscar because they f**ked up on the half-dozen other opportunities of cinematic brilliance they had to grant Scorcese an Academy Award for.
Sept. 13, 2010, 9:13 p.m. CST

... and is consistently good in everything he's done. People just can't handle the fact that he's handsome, talented and rich. I for one would love to see Leo and De Niro reunited under the direction of the man with Hollywood's largest monobrow.
Sept. 13, 2010, 10:16 p.m. CST
I am slowly warming to him as an actor. I thought he was way out of his element in Gangs. I thought the movie suffered from the presence of him and Cameron Diaz in it. However, he was so good in The Aviator, solid in the great The Departed (Yes! I said great!), and did possibly the best acting of his career in Shutter Island, although the movie was meh. And he was very good in Inception as well. I'm starting to buy him more, as long as he stays away from attempting South African accents, a la Blood Diamond. Also, I was not too impressed with Casino. Comparing The Departed and Casino, I think The Departed is much better, but neither is as good as Goodfellas.

He's a decent actor but he can't disappear into roles. Every character he plays become him, while he should be becoming the character. Every single one of his roles is just Leo with a slight variation (and the variation is usually an accent). <p> Leo just doesn't even come close to the brilliance that Pacino and De Niro delivered in their prime. Look at all of the nervous ticks and emotion behind the eyes of Pacino's Sonny Wortzik in Dog Day Afternoon. Now that is a truly masterful performance. Or how bout how De Niro played a young Vito Corleone in such a brilliantly way that you really believe he's a young Brando. Just amazing. Leo will never match these performances, or even come close. His best performance was actually What's Eating Gilbert Grape. Since he's hit adulthood he's a one-note actor. He's good at his one note, but that's about it.

But instead of a crime epic it would be a Conan the Barbarian ripoff with them in saggy tights.
