The Irishman will be screened on 27 September at the NY film festival, and will be released in cinemas and on Netflix later in the year. Hoffa was the leader of labour unions back in the day and was deeply involved with the organised crime sector.
Hoffa, played by Pacino, disappeared in 1975.
"Yes, I do. Whatever you need me to do, I'm available", Sheeran answers. Grann is also the author of "The Lost City of Z", which became a feature film directed by James Gray.
In the teaser, we see that the film opens in the 1960s when organised crime in NY was controlled by Italian-American mafia families.
This is the first time that Pacino has worked with Scorsese and the ninth that De Niro has collaborated with the Oscar-winning veteran director.
The Irishman, produced by Netflix, may have its world premiere at this 12 months's New York Movie Competition because the opening movie. We're betting this is the reason why an otherwise modest gangster story is Scorsese's most expensive film ever with a $200 million dollar budget. Pesci plays mob boss Russell Bufalino, Pacino is Teamsters boss Jimmy Hoffa, and DeNiro, as he did in Goodfellas, plays the Irishman of the title, former hitman Frank Sheeran.
No official release date has been announced for when the film will begin streaming on Netflix.
'I don't do those, ' said Scorsese. This time, he is working within the confines of real-life events. Whether you're ready to score tickets for the blockbuster of the year, binge-watch the latest hit series or track down that collector's DVD, Moviefone makes it happen - fast, cheap and just how you like it. "So where do I go?" "The festival is critical to bringing awareness to cinema from around the world".
