Brooks told the Sun, “It would be amazing if it works out with Scorsese. I’m not confirming or denying that.” Our hope is that the 70-year-old Scorsese, arguably America’s greatest living director, won’t waste his time with someone who peaked 20 years ago.
Then again, some of Scorsese’s strange-sounding projects pan out — witness his 3-D family film of last year, Hugo. Perhaps there’s a Goodfellas prequel to be made? We’d pay to see Joe Pesci kick the crap out of Brooks’ goateed alter ego, Chris Gaines.
