Pacino, Pesci, DeNiro & Scorsese Re-Team

Talk about some talent working together.

Al Pacino and Joe Pesci are said to be circling the mob drama "I Heard You Paint Houses," which Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro have been working on together for Paramount Pictures according to Deadline.

Scorsese is attached to direct and De Niro will play Frank "the Irishman" Sheeran, a mob assassin reputed to have carried out more than 25 murders. The title refers to mob slang for contract killings.

Steve Zaillian will adapt author Charles Brandt's 2004 novel. The author befriended Sheeran shortly before the latter's death in 2003 and among the crimes Sheeran confessed to Brandt was the killing and dismemberment of Jimmy Hoffa on the orders of mob boss Russell Bufalino.

Pacino has worked with De Niro in the Michael Mann-directed classic "Heat," as well as "Righteous Kill." Pesci and De Niro teamed with Scorsese on "Goodfellas," "Casino" and "Raging Bull."

Anytime these names are mentioned in regards to a project, its hard not to keep an eye on it. Scorsese recently worked on the pilot for "Boardwalk Empire," which looks to be absolutely superb, and this feels just right for him. But there's no telling if this will be Scorsese's next project though. He's in the middle of filming "Hugo Cabret" for next Christmas and he's attached to plenty of other things as well.

But while nothing is totally set in stone, if the project develops as it should, this could be one that can't be missed.
