Anybody ever read Shutter Island, Dennis Lahane's book on which Marty Scorsese's next picture is based? I ask because this early teaser poster (via) for the film is pretty creepy, and it's got me wondering just what sort of movie this is going to be.
I know very little about it except for the phenomenal cast - Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo, Ben Kingsley, Emily Mortimer, Michelle Williams, Patty Clarkson, Max Von Sydow and Jackie Earle Haley are just the first eight names on the IMDb page. I had seen some pictures of the set with actors in costume from the "We Can't Wait" post for this film (it came in at #6, but we somehow skipped the roundtable chat about it). But otherwise... zilch.
I have to admit that I'm suddenly having Cape Fear flashbacks... will Shutter Island be that insane? Is Emily Mortimer gonna bite a chunk out of somebody's face? I for one certainly hope so! It's be great to have Marty, now that he got his damn statue, go bonkers again. I know he's still got it in him.
