The Irishman: Netflix Release Date, Cast, Running Time And Everything We Know About Jimmy Hoffa

It seems like the whole world is just waiting to set their eyes on Martin Scorsese's The Irishman. The film is set to feature a phenomenal cast including gangster-movie royalty, Robert De Niro and Al Pacino who will no doubt captivate the audience despite a bladder-bursting running time. Here's everything you need to know about it including the running time, cast and synopsis.

The mob flick is going to be so huge that it's being released on the big screen despite being created for Netflix.

When talking about a possible theatrical release Robert De Niro told Marrakesh Film Festival 2018: "We've talked about it with Netflix.

"They are going to do a presentation of our film the way it should be, in a theatre, in certain venues, the best theatrical venues there can be.

Because this story is set over the course of several decades, movie makers were tasked with either finding actors who resembled some of the older cast members or simply use cinema magic to de-age them. They went with the latter which can be see in the new trailer.

If you're living over in America, you get to watch a little bit sooner, as it's reportedly tipped for cinematic release on 1 November and dropping on Netflix one week later on the 8 November.

What's The Irishman about?

The official synopsis for The Irishman reads:

"The film chronicles one of the greatest unsolved mysteries in American history, the disappearance of legendary union boss Jimmy Hoffa, and offers a monumental journey through the hidden corridors of organised crime."

The movie is based on a book called I Heard You Paint Houses by Charles Brandt and tells the story of Frank Sheeran (played by Bobby De Niro), an infamous war gangster, hitman and war veteran who got himself mixed up with some of the most notorious folk about during the 20th century.

The plot of the movie will see Sheeran caught up in the murder of a fellow gangster, Pacino's character Jimmy Hoffa.

When the premiere for the film was announced, it was described by the festival as 'funny, troubling, entertaining and, like all great movies, absolutely singular'.
