When will Martin Scorsese's The Irishman be on Netflix?
Feb 23 2017
Having finally completed his decade-spanning passion project Silence, Martin Scorsese is set to give the people what they actually want, namely: an Irish mob film starring Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and, if the rumours are true, Joe Pesci and Bobby Cannavale.
Upcoming films from Paramount include Baywatch, Ghost in the Shell, and Transformers: The Last Knight. An exact release date has not been announced yet, but the movie is expected to start production later this year.
The Irishman carries a hefty $100 million price tag on its back and Paramount is in a bad position right now after a number of its releases ultimately turned out to be major box office flops, including Scorsese's latest. 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 was previously set up at Paramount, but Netflix jumped on the project after Paramount's CEO Brad Grey stepped down.
What may be most interesting about The Irishman, outside of the collaboration between De Niro and Scorsese, is that the film will use de-aging technology - similar to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story - to make the cast look younger.
Indiewire first broke the news that Scorsese would take his business to the online-streaming giant, and Deadline estimated the deal's price tag at a princely sum of $105 million.
The deal should also put Netflix's Oscar potential to the test, especially after many thought the service mismanaged the awards campaign of indie film Beasts of the Southern Wild in 2015. Unlike Amazon, Netflix's streaming rival which releases its films in theaters before they appear online, Netflix releases the films it distributes online the same day as in theaters.
