Its production start date is August 21st (shooting month previously reported by outlets) with shooting taking place in New York City and undisclosed locations in the state of Flordia. A wrap date hasn’t been revealed but it’s expected to get penciled-in once filming begins.

“I think that’s good also because we need the money to do it right and it just wasn’t financeable in another way, in the traditional film way if you will,” he said. The film will be pushing the technology envelope by de-aging its three stars by several decades which De Niro jokes should be able to make it possible to extend his career another 40 years or so. “They’re trying to really do it as the best it’s ever been . We’re doing the young stuff first and taking it decade by decade so that later the oldest stuff will be closer to our own age. So they’re trying to really make it as good as they can make it and that’s the goal that it can be something special that everyone would want to see and see it done as well as it can at this point. I’m excited by it and looking forward to doing it.” He says he starts shooting in mid-September , the day after the Emmys."
Thanks for info! I wasnt really sure if it was true, but this seems to be final deadline. They probably really finishing details in pre-production right now. I hope as they previous idea to make it like stage play is not accurate anymore and its going to be classic movie anyway.

The presence of the Andretta brothers in this story suggests how heavy the union activities are going to be covered by the film I guess. I haven't read the book or the script or anything but that angle is really what differentiates this from other mob films potentially - it's that mix and its outreach that's a unique slant.
Basically this would be like the Lufthansa heist in Goodfellas given a detailed explanation or something like that. You have first generation mob guys (the real life Pesci, Keitel roles), guys who are I guess are outside the mob but peripheral to it (DeNiro, he's not a "made" guy I'm assuming), guys in theory operating outside of it, but of course not really (Pacino's Hoffa, Ray Romano).......it's potentially a real interesting look at that intersection of people and events and history.
That's what actually makes the film stand out on paper anyway.........

"[O]ne of the vice presidents of the film company, Villa Roma Productions, was captivated by the city’s architecture when he watched the critically acclaimed Jim Jarmusch movie 'Paterson.'" Marcia Sotorrio, Paterson's cultural affairs director, said, "He loved the old buildings," and The Irishman's location staff liked the city enough to commit to film there.
Local officials had been staying quiet about the filming, but word leaked out on Thursday. “I guess the cover is blown now,” said Bob Guarasci, executive director of the New Jersey Community Development Corp., whose headquarters is in the heart of the historic district.
Sotorrio said they movie’s producers want to keep information about the filming “hush hush.” She said the Paterson scenes show Pacino and DeNiro driving on some sort of “road trip” and the movie people want authentic backgrounds - not throngs of film fans stretching their necks for a glimpse of their idols.
Viced They filmed in Paterson for a day. Mainly exteriors, 2nd unit stuff. They've actually been shooting 2nd unit for weeks now. But technically started shooting (Day 1 of 90) on Monday.
The road trip detail is interesting....... the '09 draft of the script has a road trip framing device with older Sheeran and Bufalino (De Niro & Pesci). So it seems they're sticking with that? But then that Sotorrio lady has some of the names wrong - she means Pesci instead of Pacino.
I kinda wish Scorsese himself would play Charles Brandt, and then we could get the story from a bedridden Sheeran, which is how it happened in real life. They've swapped and morphed that scenario into a road trip thing...
