And Pesci will return to screens for Scorsese's next project, mob drama The Irishman, where he will star alongside his former co-star Robert De Niro.

Fans of Martin Scorsese films will be delighted to learn that Joe Pesci has come out of unofficial retirement to confirm that he'll be starring in new movie The Irishman, alongside long-time Scorsese collaborator Robert De Niro and the legendary Al Pacino. Production begins in and around NY next month and will continue through December, and the film also reunites Scorsese with cinematographer Rodrigo Prieto after having worked together on The Wolf of Wall Street and Silence.
