Gangs of New York TV Series Coming Up

Posted March 28, 2013 08:13 PM by Webmaster

Miramax announced today that it has teamed up with acclaimed director Martin Scorsese to adapt his Gangs of New York for television. The Oscar nominated film starred Leonardo DiCaprio, Cameron Diaz, Daniel Day-Lewis, and Liam Neeson.

"This time and era of America's history and heritage is rich with characters and stories that we could not fully explore in a two-hour film. A television series allows us the time and creative freedom to bring this colorful world, and all the implications it had and still does on our society, to life,” Scorsese said in a statement after the announcement.

Note: Gangs of New York is already available on Blu-ray, courtesy of Miramax. See our listing and review here.

So, they don't know what network it would be on yet? HBO would probably make the most sense since Marty is already a producer on Boardwalk Empire.

They should re-team the writers from Deadwood for this.

Good luck trying to get another actor to portray Bill The Butcher (if they go that route)!

I wonder if the series "Copper" on BBC America has anything to do with this decision. "Copper" is a pretty accurate recreation of the same era (and a good series to boot). It takes place in Five Points just a year or so after the draft riots portrayed in "Gangs of New York." If the new series is done well, the two shows could perhaps compliment each other.

Agreed with tylerduden10, can't compete with Daniel Day-Lewis' Bill the Butcher, what an amazing character and acting job. But I'm interested in this series... there's something really interesting to me about this time in history.

I hope Scorsese directs at least the pilot. Sounds promising, specially if this airs on a network that allows freedom to the creative team (not a public network).

@slimdude ... have you read the book? There is so much content that it's hard to imagine GoNY being just a movie. The movie was good, but the book was way better, I have faith that this could turn out to be great!.

@JHas

All books, that's been adapted into films, has more content, and are always better than the movies, not only Gangs of New York. If Martin Scorsese wanted to include more depictions from the novel, then he the opportunity to make Gangs of New York into a 3 or 4 part theatrical saga, like: The Lord of the Rings, and most certainly, Martin Scorsese very well had the finances to do it. Typically, It's impossible to dramatize each and every event, that's written in the book, from the beginning to the end, without being edited, even on a TV show as well. If this series ever come to pass, a lot of viewers are going to be constantly comparing it to the movie, and they're going to be disappointed, especially without the original cast. Never once in the history of television, that a series, was superior to the movie...Never!

On the right network, this has TONS of potential. That era of American history is so full of great stories.

slimdude: "Never once in the history of television, that a series, was superior to the movie...Never!"

Oh, I'd disagree on that one. While it's had its ups and downs over the course of its ten seasons, I'd argue that on the whole Stargate SG-1 was superior to the movie that spawned it. The original Stargate movie is watchable, certainly, but not particularly good. I'd also say that the Highlander TV series was better than any of the movies, but then, I'm one of the few people I know who finds it unfathomable that anyone likes even the first film.

And if those examples don't sway you, I have four words for you: Buffy. The. Vampire. Slayer.

AberrantNow -- I assumed that he was talking not about series that spawned movies, but series that were spawned BY movies.

Embarrassingly bad movie--Leo as tough guy, Diaz as hooker--that should never have adopted the title of what is actually an interesting book. Neeson and Lewis were good of course, but the fantasy movie doesn't have enough material to sustain a TV show.
