Scorsese plans 'Gangs of New York' TV show
Martin Scorsese's 2002 epic about rival gangs in mid-to-late 19th century New York is being adapted for TV.
Miramax announced the development on Thursday, revealing that the "Gangs of New York" TV show will actually expand beyond the Big Apple to cover organized crime in cities like New Orleans and Chicago at the turn of the century.
Anyone who watched the drama, which starred Leonardo DiCaprio, Cameron Diaz and Daniel Day-Lewis, would likely agree with Scorsese that even the movie's nearly three-hour running time couldn't contain the breadth of the topic.
“This time and era of America’s history and heritage is rich with characters and stories that we could not fully explore in a two hour film," the award-winning director said in a statement. "A television series allows us the time and creative freedom to bring this colorful world, and all the implications it had and still does on our society, to life."
Graham King, who co-executive-produced "Gangs of New York," is also involved in bringing the concept to TV.
