News about Martin Scorsese’s upcoming adaptation of Dennis Lehane’s mystery novel “Shutter Island.” The film, that will star Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo, Michelle Williams and Ben Kingsley and begins filming this March in Massachusetts. But apparently the film won’t be titled Shutter Island any longer. According to The Boston Herald the 1950s-era film noir is now titled ASHECLIFFE, the name of the mental hospital in the movie.
However, in screenwriter Laeta Kalogridis’ script, there’s lots of flashbacks to a World War II concentration camp. Hence, the casting call on Jan. 26 for background extras to play malnourished camp prisoners and military or law-enforcement types to portray the guards.
