Everybody’s talking about… #Shutter Island/Ashecliffe

The Martin Scorcese/Leonardo Di Caprio film is to become a series. The show will be a collaboration between HBO and Paramount and Scorcese will direct the pilot.

Deadline reports that the new series will be called Ashecliffe (the name of the hospital in Shutter Island) and Denis Lehane will write the script. He wrote the book that the original film was based on.
