Director Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio will reunite once again for the movie "Shutter Island," which is based on the book by Dennis Lehane. Laeta Kalogridis adapted the screenplay.
Variety reports that the drama is set in 1954 and tells of U.S. Marshal Teddy Daniels, who is investigating the disappearance of a murderess who escaped from a hospital for the criminally insane and is presumed to be hiding on the remote Shutter Island.
Lehane also wrote the books "Mystic River" and "Gone Baby Gone," both of which were also adapted into films.
