Quote from: gabriel
John Woo definitely comes to mind. On paper, this sounds like material for a more oriented action director like him than Marty. A more believable Asian-project for Marty that was announced in the late 90's was an adaptation of Robert Whiting's book "Tokyo Underworld", about a real life US Marine turned into a gangster in mid-century Tokyo, which apparently was being penned by Nicholas Pileggi no less. Not a lot of news since then though. Recent bits mentioned Dreamworks optioning the book, with producers Harry & Mary Jane Ufland attached and Jason Cahill, from the "Sopranos", being drafted to join Pileggi in the adaptation.


well the movie infernal affairs itself doesn't have too much of action, it was definitely not an action movie.
“Tragedy is a close-up; comedy, a long shot.”

Infernal Affairs: China's Sunday Morning Post hints that Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, Ed Norton and Robert Downey Jr. are all being mentioned for Scorsese's US remake of the Asian film hit.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

DiCaprio May Reteam with Scorsese for Affairs
Source: The Hollywood Reporter

Leonardo DiCaprio might reteam with Martin Scorsese, his director on Gangs of New York and the upcoming release The Aviator. The Hollywood Reporter says DiCaprio is in talks to star in Infernal Affairs for Warner Bros. Pictures.

Based on a trilogy of Chinese-language gangster movies, the project is set in the midst of an intractable battle between the Hong Kong police and the triads that rule the area. The original follows a cop who's been assigned to work undercover inside the gangs and who's risen to a fairly senior level. Simultaneously, a secret member of the same powerful criminal gang has infiltrated the police force with an equal measure of luck and success.

"Infernal" is being produced by Scorsese as well as Brad Grey, Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt's Plan B production company. Pitt most likely will star in the picture as well. William Monahan has written the script for the film.

According to today's Variety...

"Infernal" will be reset in Boston, amid tough Irish-American mobsters and cops who are their constant nemeses.

Inside word on Infernal Affairs remake
Posted on Thr, 4-Mar-2004

According to insider ‘Aero’, Leonardo Di Caprio has near officially signed for the “Infernal Affairs” remake.

“Leo’s going to be playing the undercover cop who wins a pass in the gang. He’s just waiting on the revamped script – but seems happy. Pitt’s signed to play the gang member who infiltrates the cops – great fit for both”, he says. “It’ll be a two-hander”.

“They’re transporting the action to Boston, and in essence, combining elements of all three Infernal Affairs movies. If this one’s successful, then of course there will be a sequel, but as it stands, it’s just going to be written as a stand-alone movie. Bill Monahan who did Jurassic Park 4, is the scribe. He’s juggling both jobs at the moment”.

In addition, we’re informed that a new script called “Kumite” has sold nicely, with Jean Claude Van Damme circling the production. It’s apparently reminiscent of some of JC’s earlier material, like “Bloodsport”.

So Marty's doing a movie with a script by a guy who wrote Jurassic Park 4? Am I having a nightmare???! WTF
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

I'd be a lot more interested in this if they kept it in Asia; it'd be interesting to see Scorsese take on crime in another culture.
