The Hollywood Reporter shares some casting news regarding an all-star project. Director Martin Scorsese ("The Aviator," "Goodfellas") will be directing "The Departed," which is a remake of the popular Hong Kong gangster film "Infernal Affairs." Already on board are Jack Nicholson, Matt Damon & Leonardo DiCaprio, and the latest actor to join the ensemble is funnyman Anthony Anderson ("Kangaroo Jack," "Barbershop"). Screenwriter William Monahan (whose debut feature, "Kingdom of Heaven," hits theaters in May) is adapting Felix Chong & Siu Fai Mak’s original "Infernal" screenplay. Expect WB to release "The Departed" some time in 2006.
