Martin Scorsese eager to make crime thriller “The Snowman” his next film

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Martin Scorsese’s “Hugo,” a fanciful 3D excursion opening in theaters later this week, is a relative departure for the director who made his bones on brutal crime thrillers. So it’s comforting, in a way, to report that Scorsese will head back to the realm of “Goodfellas” and “The Departed” with a recently announced future project.

The Oscar winner reportedly will direct an adaptation of author Jo Nesbo’s Norwegian crime thriller “The Snowman,” THR says. Nesbo finally approved Scorsese as a helmer – the director has been eyeing the project for some time now – and is going one extra step to say the filmmaker does not have to film in Oslo, where the book’s story takes place.

“The Snowman” tells the tale of a grizzled detective named Harry Hole who is tasked with investigating a series of nasty murders. “Snowman” is the seventh book in a long-running series, and begins when a boy sees his missing mother’s scarf wrapped around a snowman located in their town.

THR says Matthew Michael Carnahan (“World War Z”) will adapt Nesbo’s book into a workable screenplay. No word yet on when the movie would be released.
