Martin Scorsese Operates the "Machine"?

DeadlineHollywoodDaily.com has brought in a tidbit pointing out that Martin Scorsese is on duty to direct Robert De Niro-starrer "The Winter of Frankie Machine."

Seems the ninth collaboration between Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro has already been struck through "The Winter of Frankie Machine", that's according to DeadlineHollywoodDaily.com.

The site claimed to have earned a scoop from a good source informing that the Oscar-winning filmmaker "is set to direct it for Paramount under his deal there" and will immediately work on the thriller drama after finishing "Shine a Light", his career-spanning documentary on The Rolling Stones.

An adaptation of Don Winslow's novel of the same name, "Machine" finds De Niro attached to play the title character, a retired mob hitman, who spends his days running a bait shop. However, the tension, suspense, and terror of the 'old-days' return to haunt his life when the son of a mob boss asks him for backup during a meeting with members of the Detroit mob, which later appears to be used as a tool to set him up.

Rights to make the picture was secured last year by De Niro via his Tribeca Productions for scribes David Levien and Brian Koppelman to pen the script. Regarding the movie, DeadlineHollywoodDaily.com further claimed that its title has been shortened to just "Frankie Machine."
