Coming in either '10 or '11, Scorsese's new film is based around two Jesuit priests and their journey to Japan. Honestly, I didn't give a shit about it (the concept didn't intrigue me)...until I read who is in talks of starring in it.

DDL is allegedly going to star in every project that's coming down the pike, from this to 9 to the My Fair Lady remake. Why doesn't Marty cast him as Teddy Roosevelt too (he'd be better than DiCaprio at any rate)?

I'm looking forward to this much more than Scorsese's upcoming movie, Shutter Island. But are you sure this is happening? I think the project is older than I am...

It's definitely happening. Scorsese has a ton of movies planned (Silence, George Harrison documentary, Sinatra biopic, I Heard You Paint Houses, The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt, Bob Marley biopic, Boardwalk Empire miniseries) but the only one that we seem to keep getting updated on his Silence. Plans are already under way for filming to begin this year.

Oh and I think I read he'll be filming the pilot episode for Boardwalk Empire before Silence, but he'll be at work on Silence right after that.

This is a remake.  Proof again that Scorsese is completely out of ideas.

He has a lot of ideas it would appear, but none that get beyond the planning stage. I would have been interested in some of these - particularly the Rise of Theodore Roosevelt project - if I had the slightest reason to believe that they're actually going to happen.

It's a remake of Silence (1971): http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0067755/
The source novel is exceedingly famous in Japan.

If it's based upon a source novel I'd hardly call it a remake, unlike The Departed. It's just a different adaptation at a novel.

Uh huh. And if someone did a new adaptation of Gone With the Wind no-one would term that a remake? As the late, unlamented Panache would say, What planet R U smokin'?

When the book is more famous than the movie, I'd consider it more of a different adaptation than a remake. In Gone with the Wind's case, the movie's popularity has exceeded the book - thus remaking Gone with the Wind would feel more like a remake.

As for something like East of Eden (a novel adapted several times but only once famously), I would consider a new version of it to be more of another adaptation than a remake. In it's case, the book is still more famous than the movie.

My logic may seem faulty, but to me, it makes perfect sense...

Actually, everything depends on the new movie. They can make it as a remake or as a new adaptation. And they can mix.

Almost 8 years after this post:

Yes



No

My worst fears are being confirmed:

- it's gonna be cheesy
- it's gonna be boring
- the whole cast is Marty's worst ever (I had completely forgotten than DDL was supposed to be in it as some point... but YAY! We got much better: ANDREW "EDUARDO" GARFIELD!!!!)

Scorsese always fails when:

- he tackles religion too directly: Mean Streets = win / the last temptation = fail
- he goes for a slower, less nervous editing: his art direction ALWAYS leans toward cheesy... when seen through fast editing, it's edgy and cool, when the pace slows down, it becomes just plain cheesy
- he goes too far back in time: once again, cheesy art direction is cool for Vegas or NYC in the 70's, it doesn't works with anything pre-WWII.
