Saw in the paper yesterday that Marty is shooting a movie next year called "The Irishman". And it will feature De Niro and Joe Pesci. There's also a rumor that Pacino and Harvey Keitel will star in it as well.
It's based on the story of the mob hitman Frank Sheerman who among other things was involved in the murder of Jimmy Hoffa.

That's all the info they had.

I've just read the book. I'm curious to see how Scorsese will deal with the dark side of politics and the criminal ways the various unions worked. More than in his previous gangster movies here the equation: politicians=gangsters is quite apparent. The title of the book (I Heard You Paint Houses) are the very first words Hoffa spoke to the Irishman. The explanation of the Kennedy's assassination as a favour to Hoffa (and how it came to be that Ruby had to deal with Oswald), the murder of both Crazy Joe Gallo and Hoffa himself are given a quite credible explanation. Of course, can't wait for the movie.
