We still haven’t seen any footage of Martin Scorsese‘s The Irishman, and there’s a good reason for that. Scorsese and company are working hard to make the film’s special effects perfect.

Robert De Niro, who reunites with Scorsese to star in the film, offered some insight into the process.

The Irishman Best Picture

We’re all excited for The Irishman, but no one is more excited than the folks at Netflix. Because in the eyes of the streaming giant, Martin Scorsese‘s new gangster epic is a one-way ticket to winning a Best Picture Oscar next year. Having not scored the top award at the recent Academy Awards with Roma, a new report reveals Netflix is going all-in on positioning The Irishman as a serious Oscar contender. In fact, they might even do something they’ve never done with one of their movies before: give it a wide theatrical release.

The Irishman release date

It seems like every few months we learn a little more about Martin Scorsese‘s ambitious inter-generational gangster movie, The Irishman, and a little less about when this film will finally come out. Since rumblings about the film first started happening in 2010, Scorsese fans have waited with bated breath for The Irishman release date to be announced.

When Netflix picked up the drama, the end appeared to be in sight. Then 2017 passed us by. Then 2018. And not a word about this film has been spoken since the new year started — but now actors and crew have started to drum up anticipation for the Robert De Niro, Al Pacino gangster movie with new details about the film’s de-aging technology and (finally) a possible release date.

the irishman theatrical run

The long road to release for Martin Scorsese‘s The Irishman just became a little more rocky, with Netflix remaining silent on whether the legendary director’s ambitious mob movie will get a theatrical run.

Scorsese’s costly film has long bounced around Hollywood on account of its hefty price tag — the director wanted to use de-aging and aging technology to depict Robert de Niro and Al Pacino‘s characters at different stages of their lives — resulting in the project landing at Netflix. The streaming service promised to back the movie’s ballooning budget, but apparently has made no promises about a theatrical release, which would qualify the movie for Oscar contention.
