Richard Baratta is one of the Executive Producers for Martin Scorsese's film, The Irishman. We get into all that as well as his in-depth insights and his outlook on the industry. Richard has over 40 IMDB credits and has produced and worked on many of my favorite films like Last Action Hero with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Donnie Brosco with Johnny Depp. He worked on the Spiderman movies and he even co-produced The Wolf of Wall Street which is incredible. Please enjoy, listen, and learn as I did.
