Paramount abandoned Martin Scorsese movie


After much deliberation, Paramount has abandoned Martin Scorsese's gangster action movie The Irishman. According to The Hollywood Reporter, this happened against the backdrop of a personnel revolution in the studio itself, as a result of which Brad Gray, who led Paramount for 12 years, will leave his post.

The project has agreed to host the streaming service Netflix, which has yet to set a release date. Note that this movie was first announced back in 2008. The plot is based on the novel I Heard You Paint Homes by writer Charles Brandt, which tells the real story of the mafia hitman Frank "Irish" Sheeran, who, according to his own statement, killed the famous American trade union leader Jimmy Hoffa, who collaborated with gangsters.

In addition, about 25 more murders are attributed to Sheeran for the benefit of the American criminal community. The killer passed away in 2003.

It was assumed that the main role in "Irishman" will be played by Robert De Niro, and he will be accompanied by two other stars of the genre - Joe Pesci and Al Pacino. The movie's production budget is estimated at $ 100 million. Mexican tycoon Gaston Pavlovich is expected to invest the entire amount necessary to create the painting.
