First, it's "The Aviator," then, the fantastic "The Departed," now, Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio will reteam for "Shutter Island," an adaptation of a Dennis Lehane novel.
Pic will be co-produced by Paramount and Columbia.
This is interesting, the producer of TV's "Bionic Woman," will be writing the script, Laeta Kalogridis. But she also wrote "Birds of Prey" and "Nochnoy dozor" ("Night Watch") AND "Alexander." Yikes! All I can say is she better turn a great script!
So what's "Shutter Island" really about? Let Google Book Search explain,
"The year is 1954. U.S. Marshal Teddy Daniels and his new partner, Chuck Aule, have come to Shutter Island, home of Ashecliffe Hospital for the Criminally Insane, to investigate the disappearance of a patient. Multiple murderess Rachel Solando is loose somewhere on this remote and barren island, despite having been kept in a locked cell under constant surveillance. As a killer hurricane bears relentlessly down on them, a strange case takes on even darker, more sinister shades -- with hints of radical experimentation, horrifying surgeries, and lethal countermoves made in the cause of a covert shadow war. No one is going to escape Shutter Island unscathed, because nothing at Ashecliffe Hospital is what it seems. But then neither is Teddy Daniels.

I love Stephen King, and "The Mist" is one of the strongest novellas in his collection, "Skeleton Crew."
Plus, director Frank Darabont gets the quirky mind of the author. He turned "Shawshank Redemption" into a cult-phenomenon, and "The Green Mile" into an Academy-award nominated flick!
The film doesn't open until Nov. 21st, and early buzz suggest strong word of mouth.
For now, let's all enjoy THE NEW TRAILER NUMBER TWO OF "THE MIST."
