Scorsese’s “Shutter Island” to star Williams, Ruffalo, and… yes… DiCaprio

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting on Hollywood. So all is right with the world. And today, the HR site reports on Martin Scorsese, who appears to have a crowded calendar for ’08.

Alas, while I’ve been eagerly awaiting updates on Scorsese’s adaptation of Shusaku Endo’s Silence, it appears that another project has developed that will be filmed and released first:

“Shutter Island”… is an adaptation of a Dennis Lehane novel that follows two U.S. marshals who are sent to a federal institution for the criminally insane located in Boston’s Outer Harbor to capture a violent female escapee. DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo and Michelle Williams are on board to star in the production, which is due to go before cameras in March.

    “Shutter Island” is a great book, and in Scorsese’s hands, this could be a great movie.
