De Niro and Scorsese return on Frankie Machine

RobertDeNiro.jpgRobert De Niro and Martin Scorsese are set to team up again for another two films, and the first of those is underway. Entitled Frankie Machine, it is adapted from the book by Don Winslow.

The Winter of Frankie Machine (Amazon.com / Amazon.co.uk) is the novel which tells the story of Frankie Machine, a retired hitman with a successful business and a new life away from the mob. One day the local boss calls on him for a favour, a favour he has to deliver, and then he's "sucked right back in".

According to Deadline Hollywood through JoBlo the Ocean's Thirteen scriptwriters Brian Koppelman and David Levien have written the screenplay for Martin Scorcese. They also report that back during the promotions of The Good Shepherd, Robert De Niro had said that he'd like to do ten films with Scorsese, and as of now they've only completed eight.

Looks like this is the next one that will return them both to the world of organised crime. Welcome back guys, I think we're all going to be very excited about this one. Now what could the tenth be? Just be thankful that De Niro is not heading for any more flat, base, comedies.
