Pacino And Pesci To Reunite For Scorsese Movie?By WENN

AL PACINO and JOE PESCI are in talks to reunite with ROBERT DE NIRO and their GOODFELLAS director MARTIN SCORSESE for new gangster film THE IRISHMAN, according to reports.
De Niro has already signed up to play Frank ‘the Irishman’ Sheeran in the project - based on the book I Heard You Paint Horses about a mafia assassin.
And now Pacino and Pesci, who starred alongside De Niro in the hit 1990 mob movie, are also in negotiations to land roles in the film, according to Britain’s Daily Star Sunday tabloid.
A source tells the publication, “If they all do team up it will result in a rather exciting mob ensemble. Although De Niro and Pacino’s last film together (2008’s) Righteous Kill was a disappointment to many, this could well make up for that if plans come to fruition.”
