What's the early word on Shutter Island, and will Marty re-team with De Niro on a mafia movie?

Well, the early word on 'Shutter Island' is very strong, with The Hollywood Reporter and Variety being on board with this being another strong work from Martin Scorsese. The reviews should continue to trickle in during the coming days, but for now, check out those two reviews here and here.

As for Scorsese making another film with Robert De Niro, at a press day in Berlin, he let loose a hint about a potential film idea. The whole article can be found here in The Hollywood Reporter, but this is a snippet:

...one reporter from Kurdish TV asked, "When are you going to make your next big Mafioso film, something like 'Goodfellas 2'?"

After initially laughing off the query, Scorsese said he had nothing more to add to the genre before revealing that he and Robert De Niro were talking about "something that has to do with that world. No doubt about it. But it's from the vantage point of older men looking back."

-Sounds interesting to me...thoughts?


  1. Less than a week away everyone, and some people will be seeing it sooner, so that's exciting. Look for the next poll on the blog to be on Scorsese.

  2. About time I've been dying to see this forever. I was so pissed about the delay
