Now this is some good news going into the weekend (and thanks to Awardsdaily for pointing it out). It looks like the long awaited reunion of director Martin Scorsese and actor Robert Deniro will finally come to fruition, 13 years after their last collaboration, 1995s Casino. And it's a crime movie! Can't get much better than that, right?
Based on the Charles Brandt novel of the same name, I Heard You Paint Houses will star Deniro in the role of Frank "The Irishman" Sheeran, who is apparently the guy who killed Jimmy Hoffa. The great screenwriter Steve Zallian is adapting the book for the screen, but outside of that, few details have surfaced (like who will play Hoffa?). It's rather inconsequential though. They already have my ten bucks (and probably my 20 for the Blu-Ray).
