Scorsese, DiCaprio Uniting For Fourth Time

New York’s favorite filmmaker, Martin Scorsese, and his favorite actor, Leonardo DiCaprio, [will work together] for the fourth time on next year’s “ShutterIsland,” Paramount Pictures and Columbia Pictures announced yesterday.



The ageless Scorsese, who turns 167 next month, has always had a weird, almost creepy relationship with the much younger DiCaprio (Remember that prolonged hug at the Oscars last year?). Despite suspicions of pedophilia, however, the duo has churned out three Oscar-winning films over the past five years: Gangs of New York (2002), The Aviator (2004) and last year’s The Departed. Their new one, based on the [Dennis Lehane] novel of the same name, will be the third Lehane novel-turned-movie in recent years: he also penned Mystic River (2003) and Gone, Baby, Gone (2007).


The story takes place in 1954, and DiCaprio will play a U.S. Marshal investigating the disappearance of a murderess who escaped from an insane asylum and is hiding on the remote ShutterIsland. And don’t worry, my sources have already assured me that no rats will crawl across the screen in front of the CapitolBuilding at the end of this movie.
