TV: Plans For TV Series Of 'Goodfellas'

All fans of 'Goodfellas' the film or fans of the Gangster film genre - get ready!

Nicholas Pileggi, author of 'Wiseguys' - the book that 'Goodfellas' is based on, has announced that himself, Martin Scorsese and Warner Bros are in talks about creating a new TV series prequel based on the life of mobster Henry Hill.

Pileggi tells Culture Magazine, "We're trying (to develop the TV series). I want to do it, Marty wants to do it, Warner Bros wants to do it. Of course, you can't pick up from 'Goodfellas', since we murdered everybody, or rather, everybody was murdered! There's nobody left. But I think we're going to figure out a way to do the early years - sort of a prequel. The part of the movie people often like best is the opening third, where all the funny stuff is happening, and there's so much we could fit in."

So Goodfellas could be coming to your TV screen soon!
