As if you needed more reason to get your mind blown over and over again, Paramount Television and HBO has announced that they’re teaming up to develop a prequel TV series of Martin Scorsese’s mind-bending film “Shutter Island”!

Titled “Ashecliffe”, the award-winning director Martin Scorsese will return to direct the prequel series of Denis Lehane’s bestselling novel, “Shutter Island”. It was reported that the author himself is slated to write the script for the pilot episode of the series, in which the focus will be on Ashecliffe Hospital’s ominous past that developed into the events that will occur in the film:


As the series will be based on events before the film, the film’s cast including Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo, Ben Kingsley, and Michelle Willams may not return to reprise their role in the series. However, Martin Scorsese is known for his collaborations with Leonardo DiCaprio and so, the possibilities are endless. Plus, the director recently wrapped up its filming for his upcoming film “Silence” and perhaps the film’s cast including Andrew Garfield, Liam Neeson, Adam Driver, and Ken Watanabe could be featured in the series as well?

While we patiently wait for the series to debut, which actors would you like to see cast in the movie? Let us know in the comment box below!
