Al Pacino, Robert DeNiro and Joe Pesci in Upstate New York
Hollywood has come to New York. Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci and Martin Scorsese are all together for the 'Irishman,' with filming in the Hudson Valley.
The Irishman is a true story based on the book "'I Heard You Paint Houses': Frank ‘The Irishman’ Sheeran and the Inside Story of the Mafia, the Teamsters and the Final Ride by Jimmy Hoffa” by Charles Brandt.
The stars were seen at Weir’s Ice Cream in Salisbury Mills Friday, October 13th where Tom Lyons took a few photos, including the prices that went back in time. Although 70 cent shakes probably went away when the stars did.
Weir's Ice Cream aren't the only sets for the new movie in the Hudson Valley. Scenes were also shot at Ralph's Motor Repairs in Salisbury Mills and the Callahan-Nannini Shale rock quarry down the road in Blooming Grove, according to IMDB.
This is the ninth collaboration from director Martin Scorsese & actor Robert De Niro but there's been no release date on the Irishman yet.
Central and Upstate New York have become popular places recently for Hollywood. John Krasinski is using Little Falls for the backdrop of 'A Quiet Place.' Ben Stiller is filming 'Escape from Dannemora' about the prison break at Clinton Correctional in Plattsburg. Buffalo Native Bill Fichtner returned home for the movie 'Cold Brook.' Buffalo was also used for scenes in The Purge 4.
