Martin Scorsese to attend premiere of The Irishman at Rome Film Fest.
Martin Scorsese will attend the Italian premiere of his movie The Irishman, starring Robert De Niro and Al Pacino, at the 2019 Rome Film Festival on 21 October.
The Italian premiere of the much-anticipated Netflix movie will take place a week after its European launch at the BFI London Film Festival.
The screening of movie is described by Rome Film Fest director Antonio Monda as the “centerpiece" of the 14th edition of the annual gala event.
Billed as an epic saga of organised crime in post-war America, The Irishman features a stellar cast; in addition to De Niro and Pacino, the line-up includes veteran actors and Scorsese collaborators Joe Pesci and Harvey Keitel.
The Irishman sees Scorsese reunite with screenwriter Steve Zaillian - after working together in Rome on the 2000 movie Gangs of New York - and the storyline is adapted from Charles Brandt’s novel I Heard You Paint Houses about the unsolved mystery behind the disappearance of union boss Jimmy Hoffa.
