This News Bites the Moose

I liked the book quite a bit, and I like Don Winslow, the author. So I'm very sorry to hear this.

Collider.com - Movie, DVD, Music, Video Game, News, Reviews, Interviews: "According to a very reliable source, it looks like all the people looking forward to a new Robert De Niro and Martin Scorsese mafia movie are about to be disappointed.

The reason? It seems that Mr. Scorsese has dropped out of directing Frankie Machine and, according to my source, it seems quite likely the production will fall apart without his involvement.

For those who hadn't heard of Frankie Machine, the film was being made at Paramount and the original title was The Winter of Frankie Machine. The story was about a retired hit man and back in March of this year, Variety reported that Ocean's Thirteen screenwriters Brian Koppelman and David Levien were writing the screenplay for De Niro before Scorsese got involved."

Too bad Marty didn't drop out for The Departed before it was finished. What a piece of crap.
