Director Martin Scorsese and his former muse Robert De Niro are set to reunite after twenty years in the crime film The Irishman.

The duo of Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro was one of the most successful actor-director collaborations ever, and the two are set re-team after 20 years with the crime flick The Irishman.

Speaking at the Lumiere film festival in the eastern French city of Lyon, 72-year-old Scorsese confirmed they were planning to team up again for their first feature-length film since gangster and gambling epic Casino in 1995.

“It’s a film called The Irishman -- we’re still working on all the details,” Scorsese said. “Bob and I are trying to work on our schedules and the finance.”

But before starting work on the film he has two other projects in the works -- Silence, a film about Christian missionaries in 17th-century Japan and Vinyl, a series for HBO about the record industry in the 1970s.

Scorsese is set to co-produce the TV series with legendary Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger. The pair have been mulling the project since the late 1990s and had originally envisaged it as a movie.

The director, known for gritty crime movies liberally spiced with swearing and graphic violence but also original, imaginative cinematography, says he has no plans to stop work.
