Wow. Color me amazed, folks–all sorts of amazed, in point of fact–but there’s word out that says the grandest confluence in all of action drama is coming back around again. Like a planetary alignment, it hasn’t happened in the last fifteen years, but it may well be happening again.
The Irishman, originally titled I Heard You Paint Houses, is based on the book by Charles Brandt, about Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran, a hit man who killed fully twenty five people during his career. Now, there isn’t a whole lot more than that out at this stage, but the casting is coming together, and it looks (right now, anyway) like this foursome is pulling together for the first time in a decade and a half.
