What Robert De Niro Says About The De Aging In Martin Scorsese\'s Netflix Movie, \'The Irishman,\' And Everything Else We Know About The Process

Ever since Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro teamed up last in the 1995 movie "Casino," fans of the duo's collaborations have wondered when they would work together again.

And it's finally happening with the Netflix movie "The Irishman," opening later this year, a project the two have been wanting to do for decades. It's their most ambitious project yet.

Based on the Charles Brandt book, "I Heard You Paint Houses," the movie centers on hitman Frank Sheeran, who admitted to killing former Teamsters Union head Jimmy Hoffa.

De Niro plays Sheeran, whose recollections of his days in the mob will involve flashbacks going back decades. And that is where Netflix's deep pockets come in handy.

Scorsese plans to feature his actors — along with De Niro, the movie also stars Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, and Harvey Keitel — in the flashbacks de-aged thanks to Industrial Light and Magic.

In a recent interview with Yahoo Entertainment UK, Scorsese's longtime editor, Thelma Schoonmaker, revealed some more details about the process.

Following is everything we know so far about how the motion-capture technology that will be used in "The Irishman," including De Niro telling Business Insider the early stages he was a part of.
