Scorsese

When it comes to the gangster film, very few pieces are as brilliant or influential as Martin Scorsese’s Goodfellas. And now, it’s coming to the current king of television, AMC.

Deadline is reporting that the film will now be turned into a TV series on AMC, with writer Nicholas Pileggi and producer Irwin Winkler back aboard the project. Based on a novel entitled Wiseguy, the show will, like the movie, follow the “rise and fall of the Lucchese crime family associate Henry Hill, and his friends from 1955 to 1980.”

As a fan (and person who believes that it may be one of the greatest films of the entire crime genre), this is an oddly interesting bit of news. AMC is an immensely talented network but it remains to be seen if they can handle a project like this.  The Mad Men comparisons have been made, and the idea of seeing that type of show within the world of this movie, is really interesting.  What do you think?
