Martin Scorsese’s Goodfellas won just one Oscar (for supporting actor Joe Pesci) at the 1991 Academy Awards. (The year’s Best Picture winner was Kevin Costner’s Dances With Wolves.) But the film seems to grow more popular and critically acclaimed every year, to the point where it’s now considered one of Scorsese’s masterpieces, one of the best movies of the 1990s, and perhaps the best gangster film ever made without the word “godfather” in the title. Astonishingly (at least it feels astonishing to an old man like me), it’s been 25 years since Goodfellas made its debut in theaters, an anniversary Scorsese and his cast and crew will celebrate next month with a 25th anniversary screening and reunion at the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival.

We all know Martin Scorsese is a busy, busy man, with several projects he’d love to make, from his upcoming ‘Silence’ (which just began production) to biopics about the Ramones and Frank Sinatra, and the long-gestating and long-promised ‘The Irishman.’ Whether Scorsese actually makes some of these projects remains to be seen, but he may have just added another prospective film to his to-do list: a film adaptation of Kenneth Branagh’s version of Shakespeare’s ‘Macbeth.’

Scorsese is currently working on ‘Silence,’ after which he has a rather ambitious to-do list (as usual). But Wahlberg wants to add another project to the growing pile of possibilities: a movie version of ‘Boardwalk Empire,’ the show produced by both Wahlberg and Scorsese, which just ended its run after five seasons on HBO.
