Martin Scorsese crime movie The Departed is set to be adapted into a TV series by on demand broadcaster Amazon.
The 2006 film, which pitted Leonardo DiCaprio against Jack Nicholson against Mark Wahlberg against Matt Damon, is reported to be turned into a running series by Amazon and Warner Bros, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
According to reports, the new show will centre on a young undercover cop trying to infiltrate a gang, which simultaneously plants its own mole in the police – the same premise as The Departed and 2002 Hong Kong movie Internal Affairs, which the former is based on.
Excited? Us too. Especially when remembering The Departed won a total of four Oscars.
