   The cast of Martin Scorsese’s GoodFellas will reunite for the motion picture’s 25th anniversary at the Tribeca Film Festival. It is a cinematic adaptation of the 1986 non-fiction book Wiseguy by Nicholas Pileggi, who co-wrote the screenplay with Scorsese. The film narrates the rise and fall of Lucchese crime family associate Henry Hill and his friends over a period from 1955 to 1980.

   The festival announced Wednesday that a re-mastered version of the gangster film classic will close the 14th annual Tribeca Film Festival on April 25th. Following the screening at New York’s Beacon Theatre, Jon Stewart will host a conversation with Scorsese and the cast, including Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci, Lorraine Bracco, Ray Liotta, and Paul Sorvino.

   Goodfellas is often considered one of the greatest films of all time, both in the crime genre and in general, and was deemed culturally significant and selected for preservation in the National Film Registry by the United States Library of Congress. Scorsese has followed  it up with two more films about organized crime: Casino and The Departed.

   The festival will run April 15th-26th.
