Al Pacino and Robert De Niro together again on the set of Martin Scorsese’s long-awaited new mob epic The Irishman

Mob movie legends Al Pacino and Robert De Niro reunite for a new gangster film.

They were snapped shooting scenes on location in New York for The Irishman, directed by Martin Scorsese.

Pacino, 77, and De Niro, 74, appeared 43 years ago in The Godfather Part II – though they never appeared in a scene together – and were last paired in 2008’s Righteous Kill.

Their most memorable – and first – scenes shot together were for Michael Mann’s crime epic Heat.

Scorsese’s long-awaited new project also teams the legendary pair up with fellow mob film stars Joe Pesci and Harvey Keitel.

​But Oscar winner Scorsese ​says that the new project will not simply be a spin off to cult classics ​Goodfellas or Casino​.

The Irishman will see De Niro play a hit man who has had roles in major ​deaths including JFK and Jimmy Hoffa.

​Alongside him will be Pesci , Liotta, Keitel and Bobby Cannavale as major players in the drama for Netflix.​

While fans ​ have speculated that the net movie will resemble other classic gangster films,​ Scorsese ​says “this is different.”

​The New York director said: “Goodfellas and Casino have a certain style that I created for them ​-​ it’s on the page in the script actually.

“Putting Goodfellas together was almost like an afterthought, at times I was kind of rushing, I felt I’d already done it because I’d played it all out in terms of the camera moves and the editing and that sort of thing.

“The style of the picture, the cuts, the freeze-frames, all of this was planned way in advance, but here it’s a little different​.

“The people are also older in ‘The Irishman.’ It’s certainly more about looking back, a retrospective, so to speak, of a man’s life and the choices that he’s had to make.”

Scorsese, 74, ​said one major issue will be making De Niro look as young as 30 years old in some scenes.

The movie will be Scorsese’s ninth collaboration with De Niro, who also starred in Goodfellas and Casino.

Pesci ​, who has stepped away from Hollywood in recent yaars, ​ also famously starred in the two films and won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor in “Goodfellas.”

Goodfellas was released in 1990​, but lost out to Dances With Wolves for best picture at the Oscars

Casino followed in 1995​ with ​Sharon Stone ​winning a Golden Globe for her role in​ ​Casino.
