Scorsese and De Niro together again

Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro are to reunite for a mafia film, according to industry bible Variety.

Paramount has brought Steve Zaillian on board to adapt "I Heard You Paint Houses," the book about the mob assassin who many believe was involved in the death of Teamster boss Jimmy Hoffa.

Zaillian won an Oscar for Schindler’s List and worked with Scorsese on Gangs of New York.

The book’s title comes from the grisly mafia slang for a hired assassin who ‘decorates’ walls with blood.
