New Delhi, Aug 29 (IANS) Hollywood legend Martin Scorseses much-anticipated “The Irishman” will release on streaming giant Netflix on November 27.
The film, featuring Academy Award-winning stars Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci, will open in US theatres on November 1.
“The Irishman” will have a platform release starting November 1 in Los Angeles and New York, with additional engagements in the US and in the UK beginning November 8.

Based on Charles Brandt’s non-fiction book “I Heard You Paint Houses”, “The Irishman” is a saga of organised crime in post-war America told through the eyes of World War II veteran Frank Sheeran, a hustler and hitman who worked alongside some of the most notorious figures of the 20th century.
The film chronicles the disappearance of legendary union boss Jimmy Hoffa, and offers a journey through the hidden corridors of organised crime — its inner workings, rivalries and connections to mainstream politics.
