The Departed, Scorsese’s Best Picture winner starring some of the biggest stars, is being re-adapted for the silver screen as a series for Amazon.
The adaptation will be helmed by Vertigo Entertainment, Initial Entertainment Group and Plan B Entertainment, who were all involved in the production of the 2006 film.
Jason Richman wrote the new material, adapted from a 2002 Hong Kong film called Infernal Affairs.
The story is very similar to the film in that it will feature a cop going undercover into a Latino gang while a mole is positioned in the police department. It will follow both characters as they struggle with their roles and pressures.
