'Gangs of New York' series in talks
NEW YORK (AP) — Martin Scorsese is developing a TV series based on his 2002 film “Gangs of New York.”
The director is partnering with Miramax, which released the Oscar-nominated film starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Daniel Day-Lewis. The planned show doesn’t yet have a TV network. The series expands on the brutal, 19th-century New York gang world of the film. Miramax says the series will chronicle the birth of organized crime in not just New York but also Chicago and New Orleans.
