A mob hitman recalls his possible involvement with the slaying of Jimmy Hoffa.
It seems De Niro, Pacino, Pesci, and Scorsese have a movie coming out in the Fall of 2019 on the killing of Jimmy Hoffa.
The last time these guys worked on a film was "Casino" in 1995. Although Al Pacino was not in that film.
I was astounded to read that the original budget was $125 Million and has sense gone to $175 Million and this isn't a action or comic book film. How can that kind of money be spent on a film about Hoffa being killed when there have been two previous films done on this by Sylvester Stallone and Jack Nicholson.
Someone at some studio must have been out of their minds to Greenlight a film like this with that kind of budget. I just don't see the attraction.
DeNiro, Pacino and Pesci are pretty long in the tooth trying to do a film like this. Given DeNiro and his politics he has already blown off half the audience for this already.
I doubt I will see this and I can't see anything but a Box Office Failure for this film with that kind of budget. They would have gross about $400 Million just to break even.
Well looks this is the Swan Song for De Niro and Pacino, a disaster waiting to happen.
That Joe Pesci, he’s a funny guy.
De Niro is dead to me.
The person who will bring this all together is Scorcese...one of the best directors of all time.
I will see this movie.
Ha Ha. Great.
DiNiro can kiss my @##$&##*. Nasty looking thing can rot.
Like Sean Penn or the Boss
Scorsese...there, got it right this time.
Recommend the book “I Heard You Paint Houses “
Very credible. (and an excellent read)
Wonder if Slow Joe Biden will see this film. I cant recall the specific details but Slow Joe was supposed to have been bankrolled by the Mafia boss who had Hoffa killed
He was once. I think this film is his Swan Song also. All I can say is for almost $200 Million it better be something else.
“You talkin’ to me?”
“Hey I’m walkin’ here”
Two of the best lines ever delivered
I will never see this thanks to that POS DuhNiro. Can you imagine what would happen if a celebretard got on stage at an awards show and the first words that came out of his mouth was “F Obama”?? His career would be over. But it’s Ok to say that about Trump? I say F DuhNiro.
Why would you want to subsidize and glorify Robert DeNiro?
Don’t you understand what you are doing?
He salvaged Raging Bull, an otherwise mediocre film.
Half of it reads like retrospective bluster from a dying mobster.
” I think this film is his Swan Song also.”
That wouldn’t surprise me. It could be one of these people is seriously ill and I suspect it will be a swan song for a least one of them.
I know it was hoffman, just sayin’
