Scorsese and DiCaprio Team Up for Lehane Story


The novels of Dennis Lehane are proving wildly successful in Hollywood, attracting some of the most talented folks the film industry has to offer. First there was Mystic River, directed by Clint Eastwood and starring all sorts of excellent actors. Then came Gone Baby Gone, helmed by Ben Affleck and starring Affleck's brother Casey. Now Lehane's Shutter Island has drawn together the golden duo of Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio. According to Variety:

Drama is set in 1954, with DiCaprio in final talks to play U.S. Marshal Teddy Daniels, who is investigating the disappearance of a murderess who escaped from a hospital for the criminally insane and is presumed to be hiding on the remote Shutter Island.

Last I'd heard, these two were planning to get together for The Wolf of Wall Street, another mob/corruption drama, but that project seems to be taking a backseat to this new Lehane thing. Lehane's works seem highly well-suited for the big screen, so I can't wait to find out what Scorsese can do with the material. And now it looks like I'll have get myself a copy of Shutter Island.

Have any of you read this novel? What do you think of this news?

Dennis Lehane's books are terrific. Shutter Island was actually my favorite. There's a great twist to it at the end.

I'm a huge fan of Mystic River and I desperately want to see Gone Baby Gone. But I haven't read any of Dennis Lehane's books...yet.

Hmmm, sounds like it could be interesting. I have to admit, I wasn't impressed by Mystic River. I just saw it a few weeks ago and expected to love it based on the fact that it was directed by Eastwood and had an amazing cast. But I hated the screenplay.
