Netflix has officially dropped the first teaser for Martin Scorsese's hotly-anticipated new gangster flick The Irishman.

The teaser is really an announcement and doesn't say much but it is something. The Irishman is based on "I Heard You Paint Houses" by Charles Brandt and chronicles the life and crimes of hitman Frank "The Irishman" Sheerhan as Brandt interviewed him over 5 years. Sheerhan was involved in around 25 hits for the mob and was allegedly involved in Jimmy Hoffa's infamous and conspiracy theory-shrouded death and disappearance.

Robert De Niro will be Sheerhan with Al Pacino playing Jimmy Hoffa, both over three decades. Scorsese is reportedly using the same technology as was used in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button to de-age both actors. Anna Paquin, Ray Romano and Joe Pesci will co-star.

Check out the teaser below and catch The Irishman on Netflix later this year.
