Scorsese, DiCaprio Reuniting for Shutter Island

Duo bringing Lehane adaptation to theaters.

Their first three collaborations netted copious amounts of Oscar love and box-office receipts, so it isn’t surprising that Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio are in no hurry to stop working together — or that 2008 will find DiCaprio starring in his fourth Scorsese film.

Variety reports that for their fourth act, Scorsese and DiCaprio have chosen to bring Laeta Kalogridis‘ adaptation of Dennis Lehane‘s Shutter Island to the screen. Paramount and Columbia will co-produce the film, which Variety describes below:

Drama is set in 1954, with DiCaprio in final talks to play U.S. Marshal Teddy Daniels, who is investigating the disappearance of a murderess who escaped from a hospital for the criminally insane and is presumed to be hiding on the remote Shutter Island.

Lehane’s books have been popular sources of inspiration for filmmakers in recent years — Sean Penn and Tim Robbins earned Oscars for their performances in Clint Eastwood‘s adaptation of Mystic River, and the Ben Affleck-directed Gone Baby Gone, released last weekend, is currently enjoying a 93 percent Tomatometer rating.
