One of the latest trends in Hollywood is turning movies into TV shows, and the next one on the list is Shutter Island.
The 2010 movie, which was directed by Martin Scorsese and starred Leonardo DiCaprio in the lead role, will be brought to the small screen as a prequel series titled Ashcliffe that explores the origins of the mental hospital featured in the film.
Scorsese will apparently return to direct the pilot, which looks like it'll be on HBO.
Judging by the two Emmys that the Fargo TV series just picked up --one for Outstanding TV Miniseries and another for Outstanding Directing In A TV Miniseries Or Movie--, Ashcliffe already sounds like an instant recipe for success.
