Kickstarter to digitally erase the rat from the end of The Departed

The Departed is a Martin Scorsese mob movie about a rat. It ends with a scene depicting an actual rat making its way across a precarious railing: a metaphor so breathtakingly hamfisted it ruins the entire movie. Adam Sacks, therefore, is raising money on Kickstarter to have the rat digitally removed from the movie by a professional effects editor. [via Kottke] Previously: Dune with all the dialog removed

Half of Martin Scorsese’s ‘The Irishman’ Will Feature De-Aged Actors, May Arrive in October

It seems like every few months we learn a little more about Martin Scorsese‘s ambitious inter-generational gangster movie, The Irishman, and a little less about when this film will finally come out. Since rumblings about the film first started happening in 2010, Scorsese fans have waited with bated breath for The Irishman release date to be announced. When Netflix picked up the drama, the end appeared to be in sight. Then 2017 passed us by. Then 2018. And not a word about this film has been spo...

‘The Devil In the White City’ Movie is Now a Hulu Series From Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese

Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio were hoping to one day adapt Erik Larson’s fantastic book The Devil in the White City into a feature film, with Scorsese directing, and DiCaprio starring as the notorious H.H. Holmes, thought to be America’s first serial killer. But now, things have changed. Instead of a movie, we’re getting a Devil in the White City Hulu show, and while Scorsese and DiCaprio will still be producing, it’s doubtful their involvement will go much further than that. And that’s...

What Robert De Niro says about the de-aging in Martin Scorsese's Netflix movie, 'The Irishman,' and everything else we know about the process

Ever since Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro teamed up last in the 1995 movie "Casino," fans of the duo's collaborations have wondered when they would work together again. And it's finally happening with the Netflix movie "The Irishman," opening later this year, a project the two have been wanting to do for decades. It's their most ambitious project yet. Based on the Charles Brandt book, "I Heard You Paint Houses," the movie centers on hitman Frank Sheeran, who admitted to killing former Teams...

Bezos's Wild Days: Lurid Selfies, Blackmail, Amazon Drama in NYC

In the past two days alone, the biography of the world’s richest man has taken more plot twists than a M. Night Shyamalan flick and includes a superstar cast complete with President Donald Trump and a cameo by political sensation Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. A private investigator hired to unearth leaks. Martin Scorsese is salivating.

The Sex Pistols’ Sid Vicious Sings Frank Sinatra’s “My Way”: Is Nothing Sacred?

In the great garden of forking paths and alternative timelines there are two other versions of The Great Rock n’ Roll Swindle that Julian Temple never directed. One would have been directed by Graham Chapman of Monty Python fame, but “he behaved gloriously badly to Malcolm (McLaren)” according to John Lydon many years later. The other was to be written by film critic Roger Ebert and directed by buxom beauty lover Russ Meyer (who Lydon called "shabby” and “a senile old git.”) But you do h...

Why James Baldwin Is This Century’s Essential Voice, Too

Back in 2015, I wanted to write an essay for The Message (where I was working at the time) about James Baldwin. At that time, it seemed to me, Baldwin was everywhere, but somewhat below the radar; everyone was talking about him, but nobody seemed to notice that everyone was talking about him, or about the things he talked and wrote about. But The Message turned over its writing staff and quickly shut down, and that was the end of that. Four years later, Baldwin is not below the radar. Baldwi...

Joe Pesci Revisits ‘Home Alone’ in Nostalgic Google Assistant Ad

Okay Google: What two things can get Joe Pesci out of retirement and back onto the screen? Only Martin Scorsese and Google Assistant, apparently. The Goodfellas star has all but disappeared from public view since he essentially retired in 2010. But while he’ll appear later this year in Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman, Pesci maintains a relatively low profile — unless it pertains to Home Alone, of course. Following up Macauley Culkin‘s viral Home Alone-themed Google Assistant ad, Pesci decided to...

Netflix is the perfect place for Zack Snyder's zombie-movie comeback after 'Justice League' disappointed

"Justice League" director Zack Snyder's next movie is "Army of the Dead," a zombie-heist thriller for Netflix. Netflix is the perfect home for Snyder's violent, hyper-stylized approach to filmmaking, which made him an odd fit for the DC Extended Universe. "There are no handcuffs on me at all with this one," Snyder told The Hollywood Reporter. The streaming giant is known for giving filmmakers freedom, and it's attracted high-profile directors like Alfonso Cuarón and Martin Scorsese. There a...
