Martin Scorsese's 'The Irishman' tells the suspected story of Frank Sheeran, a World War II veteran who became a mob hitman and allegedly played a role in Jimmy Hoffa’s death. To give context, Jimmy Hoffa was a American labour leader who served as president of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters from 1957 to 1971 and was one of the most controversial labour organizers of his time. He disappeared on July 30, 1975, from a restaurant in Detroit under suspicious circumstances that have never been completely solved. He was said to have had an appointment at the restaurant with Anthony Provenzano, a New Jersey Teamsters official and former Mafia figure, along with Anthony Giacalone, a Detroit mobster; both later denied having encountered Hoffa, who was never seen again. Pacino's Hoffer was legally 'presumed dead' in 1982.
The film features Al Pacino (The Godfather, Scarface, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood) as Jimmy Hoffa and Robert De Niro as Frank Sheeran. Pesci, who won an Oscar for starring in Scorsese’s 'Goodfellas' is playing mob member Russell Bufalino. Steven Zaillian, who worked with Scorsese on “Gangs of New York” and has scripted films such as 'Moneyball', 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' writes 'The Irishman'
