‘The Irishman’: 9 Things You Must Know About Martin Scorsese’s $100 Million ‘Goodfellas’ Reunion
Martin Scorsese’s “Silence” may have been his 28-year-old passion project, but it was mostly ignored by audiences, grossing only $7 million in the U.S. opposite a $40 million budget. Something tells us the same fate won’t meet the director’s next project, which carries an even bigger budget and bigger stars.

Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio Aim to Shoot ‘Killers of the Flower Moon’ Next Year

It was just a few days ago we learned that next month Martin Scorsese would begin directing Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, Harvey Keitel, Bobby Cannavale, and the recently-added Ray Romano in his long-gestating crime epic The Irishman. With that Netflix production set to continue to the end of the year, it was reasonable to imagine much of 2018 would find Scorsese and Thelma Schoonmaker in the editing room. However, it looks like we may get another new Scorsese film sooner than expected.

Speaking to Variety, Scorsese’s long-time production designer Dante Ferretti says that the goal is to begin shooting their adaptation of Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI this spring. Based on the book from David Grann, the author behind The Lost City of Z, Eric Roth (Forrest Gump, The Good Shepherd) has penned the script that follows

Martin Scorsese, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Robert De Niro Circle ‘Killers of the Flower Moon’

Martin Scorsese‘s long-awaited reunion with Robert De Niro will finally happen with The Irishman; and with The Devil in the White City seemingly on the backburner, we’ve been wondering if Leonardo DiCaprio would reunite with his Wolf of Wall Street director. It now looks like a project is in the works that may bring all three of the titans together.

According to Deadline, the trio are “seriously considering” collaborating for an adaptation of Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI, the brand-new book from David Grann, the author behind The Lost City of Z. With Eric Roth (Forrest Gump, The Good Shepherd) penning the script after Imperative Entertainment snapped up the rights for $5 million, one can’t imagine a higher pedigree of talent attached.

Greyhound, starring Tom Hanks, lands at Sony

Simon Brew Feb 13, 2017

Tom Hanks will film World War II-set drama Greyhound later this year, having penned the screenplay...

Tom Hanks has been a busy man these past 12 months. As well as having three films released – A Hologram For The King, Inferno, Sully – and as well as undertaking the extensive press tours for them, he’s also shot another movie (The Circle), and polished off the screenplay to another.

The latter project is Greyhound, an adaptation of the novel The Good Shepherd by C S Forester. It’s a World War II-set drama, following a Navy officer who finally gets to command a destroyer, but has to get on top of his personal doubts and demons as he does so.

Aaron Scheider has signed on to direct the movie, that Hanks is also set to star in. The modestly priced movie – a $30m budget has been suggested – will go before the cameras in May.
