Robert De Niro And Martin Scorsese Back Together For 'The Irishman'

Posted: Updated:

Over a decade after last collaborating, one of film's greatest teams is reuniting: Martin Scorsese will direct Robert De Niro in, 'The Irishman,' the famed duo's first film together since 1995, according to Digital Spy.

Having created all-time classics such as 'Taxi Driver,' 'Raging Bull,' 'Casino,' and 'Goodfellas,' -- films that won De Niro two Academy Awards and Scorsese a number of nominations -- the pair will collaborate on a biopic about Frank 'The Irishman' Sheeran, the famed labor union official who later became a mobster. The film will be based on Charles Brandt's novel 'I Heard You Paint Houses.'

This will be the pair's eighth feature together, having begun their partnership with 1973's 'Mean Streets.'

Scorsese had moved on from De Niro as his leading man, making four films with Leonardo DiCaprio since 2002. De Niro stars in the upcoming comedy, 'Little Fockers,' hitting theaters December 22nd.
