Scorsese stepping out of his element with Shutter Island

shutterisland
Tony Scott has Denzel Washington, Spielberg has Hanks, and now it seems like Scorsese took possession of Leonardo DiCaprio. Shutter Island will be the fourth film in 7 years where Dicaprio and Scorsese team up. I must say I’m very excited to see this one, because Scorsese has been labeled has a gangster-movie director in the last years, with titles like Goodfellas, Casino and The Departed. Shutter Island looks more like a psychological thriller/suspense and seems like it will involve far less characters than his previous movies.
The movie is an adaptation Dennis Lehane’s book, who is the author of Mystic River and Gone Baby Gone.
DiCaprio’s play looks amazing as usual, and I must say I’m a big Sir Bin Kingsley fan, so I can’t wait to see this one !
