Netflix announced that it was working with legendary pair Robert De Niro and Martin Scorsese to create one of their most ambition projects to date, The Irishman. It's a gangster film with a star-studded cast that reportedly set the streaming service back a huge $173m (£143m). The film is based on a book called I Heard You Paint Houses by Charles Brandt and tells the story of Frank Sheeran, a gangster, hitman and World War Two veteran who was involved with some of the most notorious people of the 20th century. Set in 1920s Oklahoma, the plot will revolve around the Osage Nation, who became the richest people per capita in the world after they discovered oil under their land - and began to be murdered one by one. It sounds like it's going to be a thrill a minute. Here's everything you need to know about Scorsese's passion project.

Despite being a Netflix film, The Irishman will be coming to the big screen too, in a limited 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.

"How they resolve it is, in the beginning, they will show it on the big screen, we're talking about big venues where it would play, where it should play, and what happens after that I'm not sure."

What's The Irishman release date?

The Irishman is set to be released in cinemas first and then released Netflix in late 2019. The film will premiere at New York Film Festival on September 27, 2019.

It will have its international premiere at the BFI London Film Festival 2019 on October 13, 2019.

During a chat with Joe Rogan, actor Sebastian Maniscalco let it slip that the Netflix release wouldn't be far behind. When Joe asked when he could expect the film to come out, Maniscalco replied: "It's coming out in October."
