The Herald on Sunday - - THE WEEK -

NETFLIX scored a ma­jor suc­cess by fi­nanc­ing Martin Scors­ese’s The Ir­ish­man, which stars Robert De Niro, Al Pa­cino, Har­vey Kei­tel and Joe Pesci and is based on a con­fes­sion by mob hit­man Frank Sheeran that he was in­volved in the mur­der of Team­sters’ pres­i­dent Jimmy Hoffa. Re­ports say the film, which has been in ges­ta­tion for al­most a decade, will be on Netflix shortly af­ter a brief cinema run. Con­sid­er­able sums are be­ing spent on dig­i­tally de-age­ing the pow­er­house, veteran cast to make their more youth­ful selves con­vinc­ing.
