Scorsese's "Shutter Island" Changes Title
Martin Scorsese's newest film Shutter Island, based on the novel by "Mystic River" and "Gone Baby Gone" novelist Dennis Lehane, has now been renamed Ashecliffe.
Leonardo DiCaprio, Scorsese's go-to actor over the past decade, will play U.S. Marshal Teddy Daniels who travels to a mental institution called Ashecliffe on Shutter Island to search for a missing serial killer. Mark Ruffalo (huh??) will play his partner, and Ben Kingsley also co-stars. The release date? An always-vague "2009."
