Posted March 29, 2013 by Rick in Movie News

Gangs of New York, directed by Martin Scorsese is getting some TV time. The actual movie was filmed in 2002, which chronicaled the gang’s happening in the 19th Century New York. The film was an adaption of Herbert Asbury’s 1928 novel The Gangs Of New York : An Informal History of the Underworld. The three year production of the movie was defiantly not the easiest. There were many production delays as well as budget overruns. They finished it eventually, despite all the problems.

As for the TV show, there is more then enough material.The show is said to follow the events surrounding organized gangs in the late19th Century in New York, Chicago and New Orleans.
