[TV] “Shutter Island” Could Be a Great Series!

Although a bit trite, Martin Scorsese‘s Shutter Island adaptation was a pretty fun flick, although it would be better suited four the small screen.

Deadline reports that HBO and Paramount Television are making deals to turn the 2010 hit film Shutter Island into a TV series. Tentatively titled “Ashecliffe,” the plan is for the pilot to be directed by Scorsese from a script by Dennis Lehane, who wrote the bestselling thriller novel that Scorsese and screenwriter Laeta Kalogridis turned into the hit film that Leonardo DiCaprio starred in.

“Ashecliffe” is the name of the isolated mental hospital where the movie took place, and the series begins before the events of the film. The focus is the past of hospital, and the secrets and misdeeds perpetrated by its founders who erected the hospital in the early 20th Century and developed the methods of treatment use for the mentally ill.
