Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci starring together in a Martin Scorsese movie? It's a Christmas miracle!

Pacino and Pesci had long been rumored to be attached to "The Irishman," the organized crime drama that follows the dark path of mob hitman Frank 'The Irishman' Sheeran. Now, the Irishman himself, Robert De Niro, has confirmed their involvement.

"The Irishman" marks De Niro's ninth collaboration with director Martin Scorsese, his seventh with Joe Pesci and fourth with Pacino (yes, we're counting "The Godfather Part II"). And if there was ever a group of goodfellas that might one day come together and make the best mob movie ever made, period, it's these guys.
