This is great news because Scorsese and De Niro have had an excellent run together, which includes the classic gangster films Mean Streets, Goodfellas and Casino. Even separately De Niro has Heat and The Godfather Part II and Scorsese has The Departed and Gangs of New York. This will be a return to familiar territory for both of them and once the project gets some steam there’ll no doubt be plenty of buzz surrounding it.
Ever hear a piece of news that made you tear up and cheer? Robert De Niro has confirmed that he is planning to reunite with Martin Scorsese for the first time since Casino almost two decades ago, and that’s not all – the movie will be… you guessed it… a gangster film.
For me, Goodfellas is not only the best movie ever made, but the one film I’d consider perfect. De Niro’s movies haven’t been too good recently outside of Silver Linings Playbook, so hopefully a reunion with Scorsese, who’s still pumping out great movies to this day, will see him return to his former glory.
