Martin Scorsese's Upcoming Films With Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro Look Sick
Fans of Martin Scorsese will be happy to know he has a bucket-load of projects on the way, including a biographical feature on Frank Sinatra, an Evel Knievel biopic, and an original crime drama called The Irishman, which will feature Robert De Niro and Al Pacino.
Scorsese is also said to be working on The Devil in the White City, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, which will be a film adaptation of Erik Larson's 2003 best-selling novel that 'intertwines the true tale of the 1893 World's Fair and the cunning serial killer who used the fair to lure his victims to their death'.
The Irishman is about mobster Frank Sheeran, and is supposed to start shooting next year. The project has been talked about for nearly a quarter century, and Scorsese's picks for the cast have aged. So Scorsese is thought to be planning to "de-age" the actors with similar technology as the studios used to transform Robert Downey Jr. in Captain America: Civil War.

Producer Gaston Pavlovich told Slash Films: "You don't use prosthetics, make-up; they have acting and the technology is able to have them go through different time ages without the prosthetics. So we've seen some tests and it looks extraordinary.
"We were able to film Bob (De Niro) and just do a scene. We saw it come down to when he was like 20, 40, 60, so we're looking forward to that, from that point of view, for The Irishman ... Imagine seeing what De Niro looked like in The Godfather: Part II days, that's pretty much how you're going to see him again."
All these films look good, but why can't there be a Scorsese movie with DiCaprio and De Niro both starring.
