Scorsese developing Shutter Island prequel series with HBO

Martin Scorsese’s TV foray Boardwalk Empire is wrapping up after this season, but the man is already working on a potential new series for HBO: Ashecliffe, a prequel to his box office hit Shutter Island.

Hollywood Reporter says the show, “would explore the hospital’s past and misdeeds by its founders” and that Scorsese himself would direct the pilot if the show gets picked up. Dennis Lehane who wrote the novel upon which Shutter Island was based would write the script along with Tom Bernardo.

I don’t know about you, but I would watch the hell out of this show.
