Life New Martin Scorsese film will not be screened at European cinemas By weekster Posted on August 29, 2019 2 min read Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ The Irishman, the highly anticipated new film by director Martin Scorsese and actors Robert de Niro and Al Pacino, will not be shown in Dutch cinemas for the time being. A spokesperson of streaming service Netflix announced this on Wednesday. The film will be available on Netflix from November 27. In the United States and the United Kingdom, the epic about mafia killer Frank Sheeran will receive a limited cinema release from 1 November. But such a release is not yet planned for the Netherlands. The Irishman marks the first collaboration between Scorsese and De Niro in 25 years. The two men previously made major hits such as Taxi Driver, Raging Bull and Goodfellas. Scorsese and Al Pacino work together for the first time; Pacino plays Jimmy Hoffa, the powerful union leader who disappeared without a trace in 1975. Joe Pesci, who won an Oscar for his supporting role in Goodfellas, can also be seen in The Irishman. The film is already seen as one of the big contenders at the Oscars next year. That is in any case one of the reasons that Netflix gives the film only a limited release.
