Robert De Niro and Al Pacino Get De-Aged in New The Irishman

The Irishman: De-aging De Niro was a waste of money

I heard you paint houses. No please no no wait! Netflix just hit us with our first peak at The Irishman, and gangsters never looked so good! The biographical movie stars Robert De Niro as Frank "The Irishman" Sheeran a labor union leader and alleged hitman for the Bufalino crime family and Al Pacino as union activist Jimmy Hoffa. The trailer for Martin Scorseses long anticipated Netflix drama The Irishman, relied on the use of "de-aging" visual effects and fans of the Goodfellas helmer were anxious to see the results.

Both De Niro who is 75 and Pacino a spritely 79 appear at different ages spanning decades which is accomplished with VFX and makeup but its the digital de-aging work being handled by Lucasfilms Industrial Light & Magic that has already been the focus of much curiosity. Hollywood has been experimenting with digital de-aging of late most recently to great effect in Captain Marvel, where it was used to bring a 70 year old Samuel L. Jackson back to his 90’s glory and in Ant-Man where Michael Douglas was made to look like his younger Wall Street-era self. De-aging does present a difficult challenge for filmmakers since audiences are so used to seeing their favorite actors faces over the years.

Viewers can be acutely aware if the VFX team messes the mark. The Film also stars Joe Pesci Anna Paquin Bobby Cannavale Ray Romano Sebastian Maniscalco and Harvey Keitel at least a couple of whom will also appear with some digital trickery. Referencing his ninth collaboration with Scorsese De Niro said The Irishman, which was originally announced in 2008 and first set up at Paramount will release in select theaters and on Netflix. It will have its world premiere as the opening night film at the 2019 New York Film Festival. The film was adapted by Steve Zaillian from Charles Brandts 2003 book I Heard You Paint Houses, detailing Sheerans life and the hits that defined his mob career including connections to the infamous Bufalino family.

Scorseses longtime collaborator three-time Oscar winner Thelma Schoonmaker is editing and the movies moody images were lensed by cinematographer Rodrigo Prieto who also shot Scorseses The Wolf of Wall Street and the historical period drama Silence.
