Has Martin Scorsese gone Hollywood? I think I'm going to hang my enormous paycheck right about ... here.
With what appears to be his first entry into the popular (supernatural?) horror genre, Shutter Island
, arriving in two days, is it possible that Martin Scorsese will start making remakes and reboots and sequels and prequels and other current Hollywood trends?
Alright, stupid question. Of course not, this is the groundbreaking visionary that gave us Raging Bull
, Taxi Driver
, and ....
Oh shit. Taxi Driver 2
.You talkin to me? Are you talkin to me? Hello? This reception is horrible, you should just call my agent.
You read right. Rumors started at the Berlin Film Festival that Scorsese was talking with Lars Von Trier about a new Taxi Driver
project. Whether it was a reboot, remake, or sequel - or whether it was true at all - remains to be seen. But Von Trier's producing partner, Peter Aalbæk, will neither confirm nor deny and claims an official statement is forthcoming.
Also, Scorsese recently stated that he and DeNiro are talking about a new project set in the crime world. No one knows if these two projects are connected, but it does seem something is afoot.
What do you think? True or false? Good idea or bad idea?
Genius or folly, I'm intrigued.
Let the fake title contest begin!
