Martin Scorsese's 'Boardwalk Empire' Adopted as Atlantic City Casino's Theme


New Jersey developers Dennis Gomes and Morris Bailey reveal that they plan to style their new Atlantic City casino like hit new U.S. TV drama 'Boardwalk Empire'.

Martin Scorsese's hit new U.S. TV drama "Boardwalk Empire" has inspired a group of New Jersey developers to turn their new Atlantic City casino into a homage to the show. Dennis Gomes and Morris Bailey are planning to style their new venture like the Prohibition-era gambling meccas featured in the gritty new series, starring Steve Buscemi as casino boss and gangster Enoch 'Nucky' Johnson.

Resorts Atlantic City, the nation's first casino to open outside Nevada, will adopt 1920s decor and music throughout and all staff will dress in 1920s attire.

Dennis Gomes told The Associated Press in an interview Thursday morning, "A lot of people here are learning 1920s songs now." Gomez mentioned that the 1920s were "more than just a decade in a history book. It was a decade that defined and shaped our natio. Beyond that, it was fun, adventurous and exciting, a period in time where people simply let loose to give way to a lifestyle where entertainment was king."
