Goodfellas TV Show In The Works!

| Filed under: TV News

goodfellas prequel on tv

We're not sure how they'll do it, but it would be inneresting.

It seems Martin Scorsese and Goodfellas scribe Nicholas Pileggi are in talks to bring a prequel of the legendary mobster film to the small screen

Pileggi said:

"I want to do it, Marty wants to do it, Warner Bros. wants to do it. Of course, you can't pick up from 'Goodfellas,' since we murdered everybody, or rather, everybody was murdered! There's nobody left. But I think we're going to figure out a way to do the early years — sort of a prequel."

Lots of luck!

    I think Joe Pesci is shrinking but I'm thinking he is closer to Snooki's height. He's suppose to be 5'4 but he looks considerable shorter than Tom Cruise (who most say is 5'5 or 5'6).

    Quick before they all die in real life!

    A prequel? What, when these future mobsters were still in kindergarten?

    Hopefully it is on a pay channel!

    what a lame idea, im sure itll be overhyped and deemed emmy worthy before one line is even written

    My dream has just about come true! Anything related to "Goodfellas" is going to be great! I can't wait and I hope it happens!

    Bravo on the creativity ! Why not leave the classics alone ? And there is already a "goodfellas tv show" it's called the Sopranos.

    You know what I find incredibly sad about this post? I truly believe that whoever wrote it actually believes that "inneresting" is the correct spelling.

    That said , I cannot wait for this to happen! My favourite movie of all time!
    Re: mike2810 – You've obviously never seen Goodfellas, because the only similarity is that they're both about gangsters.

    Hate to say it but it won't be the same because they can't use the dirty, badass language on regular tv. If you take out all the bad words the movie is boring. Wouldn't watch it.

    Re: Serena Loves Mario – I have seen it and several times ! The subject is the same, (mob story), the atmosphere is the same and even a lot of actors that were in Goodfellas ended up in the Sopranos ! In a different way, they both want to be out of it ! One succeeds, the other not ! What else is left ?

    Didn't they have that already call the The Soprano's?

    Re: mike2810 – Not all mob stories are the same. I see very few similarities between the two, besides a few similar actors.

    Haven't we had enough already with Boardwalk Empire AND the Sopranos?
