Goodfellas gets a TV series

January 13th, 2012 by Marc Comments

It’s been confirmed that AMC is making a TV series based on Martin Scorsese’s film Goodfellas. No word on the great man’s involvement yet but there is some reassuring news in that Nicolas Pillegi who wrote the book Wise Guys that the film’s based on, and also co-wrote the movie script will be co-writing the pilot.

It’s unlikely we’ll see De Niro or Pesci involved given their age but given the advances in quality TV drama, as well as the fact that Scorsese’s dabbled in the small screen with Boardwalk Empire, we wouldn’t write anything off just yet.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
