Martin Scorsese film 'The Irishman' headed to Netflix, report says
Feb 25, 2017, 00:06
For his next feature, he'll be tackling another long-developing project with The Irishman, but according to a new report, it will be unprecedented territory for the director, distribution-wise. The film is based on the true-crime Charles Brandt novel I Heard You Paint Houses, which recounts the real deathbed story of mobster Frank "The Irishman" Sheeran, who claimed to know the fate of Jimmy Hoffa, the labor union leader who mysteriously disappeared in 1975. The project is budgeted at $100 million, and will use Rogue-One-like visual effects to make De Niro and other actors look decades younger in flashback scenes.
Netflix will reportedly release the film to subscribers sometime in 2019. Paramount handled the release of Scorsese's last movie, the religious drama Silence. Paramount's last collaboration with Scorsese-the filmmaker's spiritual passion project Silence-was a critical success but a box office disaster, earning just $7 million in the USA on a $40 million budget. It's not as insane as you might think.
As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be on Netflix. The streaming service has cavernously deep pockets, and is known not to meddle with auteurs-especially someone as iconic as Scorsese. The source also remarks Netflix handling the film instead of Paramount ensures Scorsese "can make the project he wants". They had been talking to Netflix over the past couple of weeks. However, we sincerely hope a substantial theatrical roll-out is planned as seeing a new Scorsese film for the first time from our couch just wouldn't feel right. Several major theaters have boycotted Netflix's strategy, maintaining that it depresses turnout if viewers can watch a new release online in the comfort of their own homes, rather than spend money to see it at a theater. Now, however, seven years after the film was announced, The Irishman has found a worldwide buyer in Netflix.
Martin Scorsese's The Irishman has made the move to Netflix.
Despite the disruption, The Irishman will be good ol' fashioned Scorsese caper.
I am not surprised Guardiola says his side will fly to Monaco for the second leg looking to score as many goals as possible. I've been to St Etienne a few times as a fan and while they don't get huge numbers it's quite a hostile stadium to go into.
