The Shutter Island movie trailer has arrived and it looks like Martin Scorsese will have another winner on his hands.Â The movie is based on the novel of the same name, written by Dennis Lehane, who also wrote Mystic River and Gone Baby Gone, which both got turned into movies.Â Shutter Island is directed by Scorsese and is set for an October 2009 release. It stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo, Ben Kingsley and Michelle Williams.
Without giving too much away, the novel/movie is set in 1954, and there is a federal institution for the criminally insane set up on an island off Massachusetts, Shutter Island.Â DiCaprio plays the title character of a US Marshal who is called into Shutter Island to investigate a patient that has disappeared.Â Again, I don't want to give too much away, but DiCaprio's character feels there is more than meets the eye when it come to the institution and suspects that they are performing brain surgeries as part of a secret program.
I'm going to have to read the book before the movie comes out because it always seems like the book is better.Â But with Martin Scorsese directing it's sure to be a great movie as well.
