Martin Scorsese, the director of such masterpieces known as Goodfellas, Casino, The Departed, Gangs of New York, etc. Has bee rumored to be directing a new Mob movie. His next two movies are entitled Shutter Island and Silence. Shutter Island is scheduled for Oct. 2nd 2009 and is about US Marshall in search of an insane asylum escapee you is presumed to be on a remote island. Silence is set to release sometime in 2010 and is the story of two priests who witness the death of their people by the hand of their peopl and wonder why god remains silent while these deaths continue.
Now don’t get me wrong, these sound like good movies themselves, but there’s been rumors floating around that Martin Scorsese is directing another Mafia Film set to release sometime between 2010 and 2011 that’s about the prime suspect in the Jimmy Hoffa murder. Possibly best of all, Robert De Niro is playing the main character. The movie is titled, I Heard You Painted Houses, which refers to slang, which means a mob hit, where splattered blood is used instead of paint. I for one am extremely excited and hope the project gets underway as soon as possible.
