Fresh off the back of overwhelmingly positive reviews for his latest film, Silence, reports have emerged that Martin Scorsese will return to some of his favorite actors for his next films.
The acclaimed director’s upcoming film is most likely to be The Irishman, which will star both Robert De Niro and Al Pacino. The plot is said to center around mobster Frank Sheeran, with shooting finally scheduled to start next month after being in the works in one way or another for almost 25 years. Scorsese is reportedly sticking with the same cast he had planned when he first started writing the screenplay, and plans to “de-age” the actors with the same technology used by studios to create superhero movies.
Meanwhile, in Scorsese’s other project, Leonardo DiCaprio is expected to return to star in an adaptation of the hit historical novel The Devil In The White City. The story combines the story of the Chicago Worlds Fair (which inspired Walt Disney to create Disneyland) and the serial killer HH Holmes. DiCaprio will play Holmes, which seems like another spot of genius casting.
Unfortunately, neither film has received an official release date. Which one are you most looking forward to? Let us know in the comments below. Oh, and if you haven’t seen it yet, here’s the trailer for Silence.
