Martin Scorsese is back in business with HBO, this time to bring his 2010 thriller Shutter Island to the small screen as an ongoing series. Deadline reports that the celebrated director, who executive produces and directed the pilot for Boardwalk Empire, is teaming up with HBO through Paramount TV for the series, which is tentatively titled Ashecliffe. Ashcliffe was the name of the insane asylum in the Leonardo Dicaprio-starring film.
The movie starred DiCaprio (who will also executive produce the series) as a US Marshall who investigates the mysterious disappearance of a murderer from asylum, which is located on a remote and barren island off the Massachusetts coast.
