THE IRISHMAN will open the 2019 NY Film Festival
With a budget reported to be $200 million dollars, the film is being distributed by Netflix, which hopes to outdo last year's Roma, a film by Alfonso Cuarón which won Oscars for Best Foreign Film and Best Cinematography, and which was the centerpiece offering at the NY Film Festival last year. A passion project for Scorsese, the movie also stars Harvey Keitel, Bobby Cannavale and Anna Paquin.
Following the NY Film Festival showing and a short theatrical release, the film is set to stream digitally late in 2019.
