Robert De Niro is returning to work with longtime collaborator Martin Scorsese on a new film detailing the life of hitman Frank "The Irishman" Sheeran. De Niro won his 1981 Best Actor Oscar as the lead in Scorsese's Raging Bull. Fellow Oscar-winner and Scorsese stalwart Al Pacino will join him in the film as Jimmy Hoffa. All things considered, it looks like another hit is in the works. When on-set pictures began circulating, however, Twitter was too distracted by a costuming detail to get excited.

Isn’t anyone more concerned for the position of Pacino’s feet? 😂— Brad (@BradleyNCoulson) December 21, 2017
I can just hear the documentary voiceover now “To play the role, Al Pacino had his feet surgically altered. Staying in character, he walked with a limp throughout the shoot. He also gained 75lbs to fit his costume, but his dedication came with a price...”— TΛNIN ΞHRΛMI (@TCorp) December 21, 2017
I will not watch this movie unless DeNiro’s shoes are integral to the plot.— Caleb Saenz (@calebjsaenz) December 21, 2017
