Yeah, I think he wanted to make this before he made Gangs of New York but the studio execs wanted another gangster film. It’s a funny world, even a filmmaker of Scorsese’s calibre can’t control which films he will make.
You know that he wanted to do Gangs of NYC since the eighties, and also wanted Joe Strummer as DiCaprio character.
Anyway, that movie sounds promiscing. Daniel Day Lewis and Del Toro and Gael Garcia Bernal. I can’t wait for Shutter Island with Leo first.
