Martin Scorsese to direct Norwegian crime thriller “The Snowman”

Martin Scorsese is going to be returning to his comfort zone in his next movie. Since “Shutter Island” was released in 2010, the esteemed director helmed the pilot episode of HBO’s hit “Boardwalk Empire” and also made his first CGI-heavy “kids” film, “Hugo.” With the latter set to be released on Wednesday, Scorsese has finally unveiled the next project he has in the works: “The Snowman.”

The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Scorsese will adapt Norwegian author Joe Nesbo’s best-selling detective novels for the big screen. It’s a project that Scorsese has been interested in for some time. The crime-thriller is supposed to be more in line with Scorsese’s 2006 Oscar-winner “The Departed” than his more recent films. “World War Z” scribe Matthew Michael Carnahan will pen the script.

“The Snowman” follows “anti-authoritarian, anti-sobriety cop” Norwegian detective Harry Hole who investigates a series of gruesome killings. This story is the seventh in the Harry Hole franchise.

Scorsese has several other projects on his plate that will likely take the backburner to “The Snowman.” His Jesuit priest-drama “Silence” is supposed to be in pre-production right now, but will probably get delayed so Scorsese can get started on this. He also plans on making “The Wolf of Wall Street,” a remake of “The Gambler” and a Frank Sinatra biopic, but there’s no set start date on that.

Are you glad Scorsese is returning to the crime genre, or do you wish he’d experiment more? Tell us in the comments section below or on Facebook or Twitter.

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
