The gangster epic stars De Niro, Pacino, and Pesci.

Given the incredible story of Frank 'The Irishman' Sheeran and his involvement with the Mafia and Jimmy Hoffa, you could do a miniseries adapting Charles Brandt's novel  I Heard You Paint Houses and still miss out on some of the details.

However, when it comes to creating gangster epics, rounded characters, and memorable set pieces, there's nobody better than Martin Scorsese.

Goodfellas is two hours and 28 minutes long but it absolutely flies by. The same can be said about The Departed which is actually three minutes longer.

Well, Vanity Fair are reporting that The Irishman will clock in at 210 minutes, aka three and a half hours. That's the longest film in Scorsese's illustrious career.

At present, The Wolf of Wall Street and Casino are the longest films that were directed by the Oscar-winner. Given the runtime, it's good that you'll be able to view it from your own home - a bathroom break will probably be required! - but the film is set to be shown in select cinemas before it's rolled out on Netflix on 27 November.

The Irishman Netflix

In terms of the plot, the official synopsis states: "An epic saga of organised crime in post-war America told through the eyes of World War II veteran Frank Sheeran, a hustler and hitman who worked alongside some of the most notorious figures of the 20th century.

"Spanning decades, the film chronicles one of the greatest unsolved mysteries in American history, the disappearance of legendary union boss Jimmy Hoffa, and offers a monumental journey through the hidden corridors of organised crime: its inner workings, rivalries and connections to mainstream politics."

Aside from De Niro, Pacino, and Pesci, the cast also includes Harvey Keitel, Jesse Plemons, Anna Paquin, Stephen Graham, Ray Romano and Bobby Cannavale.

Now that's one hell of a lineup.

Take a look at what's in store.
