Aint it Cool is not the MOST reliable source, but its still an interesting rumor...

Scorsese & DiCaprio to tackle the sci-fi epic series HYPERION?!?!?!?

Basically, Dan Simmon's Hyperion saga is one of the best series of science fiction novels in the last several years, if not ever.  Dan Simmons spoke at the University Bookstore in Seattle a few nights ago.  He said that the screen rights for the Hyperion saga have been sold to a major studio.   He said the director and star did a movie together very recently. He said something about it being a movie with an extravagant budget, and it was "about some gangs in some city somewhere."  He pointed out that this is the movie business and anything can happen; nothing is definite.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

France Decorates Scorsese, Awards DiCaprio

France honored film director Martin Scorsese by making him an officer of its Legion of Honor and gave actor Leonardo DiCaprio the slightly less prestigious Arts and Letters award.

Culture Minister Renaud Donnedieu de Vabres hailed Scorsese's respect "for the rights of artists" at a ceremony Wednesday. He said the director gave life to "cinema that everyone French, Europeans and Americans likes."

"I don't know what to say after such a presentation," said Scorsese, director of "The Aviator" the new movie that stars DiCaprio as Howard Hughes.

"French cinema of the late fifties, and the sixties and seventies still, for me, is such an extraordinary inspiration," said the 62-year-old director.

"Nothing has really come close to it in recent years," Scorsese added. "I owe a great debt to French cinema."

Napoleon Bonaparte created the Legion d'Honneur in 1802. It recognizes military, cultural, scientific or social contributions to France, including those by people who aren't French citizens.

The French minister hailed DiCaprio whose films also include "What's Eating Gilbert Grape," "Titanic" and Scorsese's "Gangs of New York" as a movie icon and as the "little prince of Hollywood and bad boy of Los Angeles."

"Peter Pan of cinema, you are a global star," the minister said as the 30-year-old actor looked on with an embarrassed smile.
“Don't think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it's good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.” - Andy Warhol

Now Scorsese is in the same league with that other American genius, Jerry Lewis.
