10 Movie-To-TV Projects We're Excited About | Goodfellas

Stage: In development

How would it work? Henry Hill’s story gets even more scope in this adaptation of the Scorsese classic. Nothing official has been announced, but it would be mad to cover the same ground.

What to say about it: Though we’re pretty certain no TV show can compete with the triumph of the original film (and mobsters have already been tackled with aplomb on the small screen via The Sopranos), the participation of original book writer and film script man Nicholas Pileggi gives some hope. He’s been developing the show with Jorge Zamacona (Oz, Homicide: Life On The Street), and while Pileggi has also been busy launching crime drama Vegas, AMC will be hoping he can also run Goodfellas.

Possible casting: He probably wouldn’t do it, but Sopranos’ Michael Imperioli could easily inherit Liotta’s mantle.

Possible tagline: “Damn it feels good to be a gangster”

4 Isn't S.H.I.E.L.D meant to be set in a totally diiferent "Universe" to the MCU?
Last I heard Kevin Fiege was adamant that the TV shows based on Marvel Characters (Hulk especially) would have absolutely no relation to the films. Basically the same way that Marvel comics and Ultimate Marvel comics take place in different realities. Have I missed him giving up on that? More

* Jon Cryer. Alan's his character. Doh. More

Was excited when About a Boy popped up but that sounds bad. It could do with a mini-series to flesh out the parts of the book that the film deviates from, but just to take the concept of man-befriends-boy? Why don't you just get rid of Alan Cryer and have One And a Half Men? More
