Martin Scorsese - Page 5
Martin Scorsese - one of America's greatest directors - is teaming up with Lord Richard Attenborough (director of 'Gandhi,' and star of such films as 'The Great Escape' and 'Jurassic Park') to produce 'Silver Ghost' - the story of how Charles Rolls and Henry Royce came together to make that famous car and hood ornament.
Everyone's favorite TV coach (sorry, Craig T. Nelson) is the latest to join the cast of Martin Scorsese's 'The Wolf of Wall Street,' based on a script by 'Boardwalk Empire' scribe Terence Winter.
Martin Scorsese once said of Sam Fuller that if you don't love Fuller's films you don't love movies. We'd say that same of Scorsese. What would cinema be without 'Taxi Driver' or 'Raging Bull?' As great as those films are, Scorsese thinks he could have improved them. Improved them by shooting them in 3-D.
One of the hardest working directors in all of mainstream Hollywood definitely is Martin Scorsese. There's been a lot of debate on which project Scorsese would take on next, especially since he's been rumored to be attached to a few different projects, but he finally picked his next movie.
Directing legend Martin Scorsese has been talking about wanting to make a feature film on the life of iconic singer Frank Sinatra, but only now is the project finally picking up some steam. But will it still be a movie or something even bigger?
'Raging Bull' is arguably Martin Scorsese's finest piece of film making. A movie that stands on its own with it's own story to tell that never required a sequel. But this is Hollywood we're talking about, and Scorsese clears the air on the possibility of a 'Raging Bull II.'
I just checked my calendar. It’s no longer April Fool’s Day. But how else do you explain a story that simply has to be a practical joke? Please tell me that this isn’t true, that Hollywood wants to make a ‘Raging Bull’ sequel without either Martin Scorsese or Robert De Niro.
