We may be used to movies being adapted into television series by now, but that doesn’t mean that the idea of a network Goodfellas series, written by the movie’s screenwriter, still doesn’t seem just a little odd.
Deadline Hollywood reports that several studios are after the proposed series, with Warner Bros at the head of the line purely because of their distribution of the movie. Whether of not Martin Scorcese will be involved with the show is “unclear,” according to the site, but veteran director Irwin Winkler is said to be the executive producer. Two thoughts immediately spring to mind upon hearing about this project. Firstly, haven’t we seen this already with The Sopranos? And secondly, even if this show ends up on cable, I can’t expect that it won’t be toned down significantly for the small screen. Will fans stand for that?
