Netflix mob movie The Irishman finally sets theatrical release

After weeks of back-and-forth with theater chains, the Netflix mob movie The Irishman has finally set its big-screen release schedule.

According to Variety, director Martin Scorsese wanted a more traditional rollout in theaters, but will instead have to settle for what’s becoming known as the Netflix release. It will open in select theaters on November 1, and gradually increase the number of screens until it drops on the streaming platform on November 27. It’s also being reported that the film will have a similar run to last year’s Oscar-winning Roma, which will screen in about 150 theaters stateside, and roughly 1200 more abroad.

Robert De Niro headlines The Irishman as mob hitman Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran, reputed to have carried out more than 25 murders. Al Pacino will portray infamously slain labor leader Jimmy Hoffa in what will mark the Academy Award winner’s first time working with Scorsese.

It has also been reported that The Irishman may employ extensive (and expensive) digital de-aging techniques so the older actors can portray their characters through the decades. Joe Pesci will portray Pennsylvania Mafia boss Russell Bufalino, who may have had a hand in the disappearance of Jimmy Hoffa. Ray Romano will play another member of the same crime family, Bill Bufalino.

The Irishman will begin its theatrical rollout starting November 1, and will premiere on Netflix starting November 27. It will have its official premiere at the New York Film Festival next month.
