Scorsese’s The Irishman delayed due to the “youthification” process

Production on Martin Scorsese’s hugely anticipated The Irishman began way back in 2016, so we’re used to waiting around for this much ballyhooed reunion of the Oscar winning director and his big-hitting collaborators, Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci, and Harvey Keitel. Well, we’re going to have to tough it out for slightly longer, because Scorsese has revealed in a conversation with Joanna Hogg on the The Bigger Picture Podcast that the digitial “youthification” process needs more work.

The legendary director revealed that the de-aging process appeared to be altering the look in the actor’s eyes, which was then changing the feel of the performance. Scorsese told Hogg they’d “shot as much 35 as possible. However, there’s a great deal of CGI because we’re doing this youthification of De Niro, Pesci, and Al Pacino. They had to be CGI. They had to be a camera with three lenses.

Josh Trank confirms 2019 release date for Tom Hardy-led Fonzo

Josh Trank, the director of Fantastic Four, has confirmed a 2019 release date for his new film Fonzo – an Al Capone biopic starring Tom Hardy.

A film director’s career isn’t always a smooth series of events. Josh Trank has had a tough time of it lately, with his Fantastic Four movie not impressing pretty much anyone at all. Well, Trank is now back with his new film Fonzo, a drama about Al Capone starring Tom Hardy.

Confirming that the movie will be coming out in 2019, Trank took to Twitter, saying that his past failures have bought him to what he believes is the best work of his career: “Failure was a gift. It forced me to walk an honest path, and I’m way happier today than I ever was before. I have a film out later this year, starring Tom Hardy, called Fonzo that I wrote, directed, and edited.

2019 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: #27. Josh Trank – Fonzo

It’s time to say goodbye to the De Niro Capone touch from The Untouchables. A meatier, bulkier project that would certainly rev up Sundance audiences, Josh Trank might not have a history with Sundance as a filmmaker, but as an editor, he cut Robert Siegel’s Big Fan (2009). Fonzo was momentarily placed on the backburner until the film’s star Tom Hardy was done filming Venom. Production took place this past April with Linda Cardellini grabbing a more meaningful part than her recent turn in Green Book, Matt Dillon, Kyle MacLachlan, Kathrine Narducci joining the imprisoned mobster.

Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese officially on board Killers of the Flower Moon

Having been rumoured for a couple of years, Imperative Entertainment have now announced that Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio are officially on board an adaptation of David Grann’s bestselling book Killers of the Flower Moon.

“When I read David Grann’s book, I immediately started seeing it – the people, the settings, the action – and I knew that I had to make it into a movie,” said Scorsese. “I’m so excited to be working with Eric Roth and reuniting with Leo DiCaprio to bring this truly unsettling American story to the screen.”

Production on Killers on the Flower Moon is slated to begin in summer 2019 once Scorsese finishes work

New Photo of Tom Hardy as Al Capone in Fonzo and His Voice is Based on Bugs Bunny

A new photo has surfaced from the upcoming film Fonzo and it gives us a new look at Tom Hardy in the role of Al Capone. He looks good in the role, and I just want to point out that those aren’t wrinkles on his face, those are scars, which are the result of Capone insulting a woman and getting his face sliced up by her brother. This earned him the nickname "Scarface."

But it sounds like he's going to bring an interesting voice to the Capone. Apparently his voice is based on the popular Looney Tunes character Bugs Bunny. It's hard to imagine that when you look at his hardened face in the photo above, but in a recent Esquire profile, Hardy says that he was mostly inspired by Bugs Bunny for his role as Capone.

The person interviewing him even got got to listen to his voice and they said,

Tom Hardy's Al Capone in Fonzo Sounds Like Bugs Bunny
Tom Hardy has, at least in part, based one of his latest characters on Bugs Bunny. Hardy is currently filming Fonzo, a biopic that chronicles the later years of notorious gangster Al Capone. The actor is known for giving the characters he plays rather unique voices, with mixed results. Hardy has revealed that his take on Al Capone may be his weirdest and most bizarre one yet, as it's inspired by the famous Looney Tunes character.

The reveal comes as part of a wide-ranging interview that was recently published on Tom Hardy. During the interview, the actor was explaining his process for developing the characters he portrays. While on the subject of Al Capone in Fonzo, Hardy said the character sounds like Bugs Bunny. To offer proof, he played the interviewer a clip from his phone, which reportedly "sounds like the cartoon rabbit with a severe case of vocal fry.
