Friends in high places

Gazette staff December 5th, 2012

Oscar-winning director Martin Scorsese is known for some of cinema’s all-time finest tough-guy films — Goodfellas, Taxi Driver, Raging Bull — so when he ventures outside his crime-minded comfort zone, it raises eyebrows. (And have you seen his eyebrows?) News of him potentially directing a television special starring Yukon’s favorite son Garth Brooks would have CFN doing just that, but we got our brows waxed and plucked so thin, they barely move. Anyhow, according to The Las Vegas Sun, Brooks just wrapped up a three-year stint performing in Sin City, and real-estate mogul Steve Wynn says Marty “said he’d love to” shoot it for all of America’s eyeballs.

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.

If you have ever seen, Garth's one man show in Vegas, you will know why Scorsese wants to work with him.


Here's hoping the two will get together.
