Shutter Island is being adapted for TV

Shutter Island

(From Den of Geek) Another day, another film-to-TV adaptation. This new trend, seemingly a reaction to the success of Fargo , has shown no sign of letting up lately, with news of adaptations for The Devil’s Advocate and Minority Report.

The latest movie to go into telly development is Shutter Island. Under the guidance of HBO and Paramount, the movie’s director Martin Scorsese will direct the pilot episode from a script by Dennis Lehane, the author who wrote the original novel which was later adapted in to the DiCaprio-starring film.

Thought to be titled Ashecliffe (after the mental institute in the film), the show will explore the universe of Shutter Island in the years before the events of the movie. So don’t expect to see Mark Ruffalo and Leonardo DiCaprio popping up.

The plot has been described as focusing on “the secrets and misdeeds perpetrated by [Ashecliffe’s] founders who erected the hospital in the early 20th century and developed the methods of treatment use for the mentally ill.”
