: hey all you DDL fans,
: watch for this Martin Scorcese film set to be released Fall 2001, starring Danial Day-Lewis, Liam Neeson, Leonardo DiCaprio, Cameron Diaz. The film is based on the 1928 book of the same name by Herbert Asbury.
: The film tells the true story of rival Tammany Hall era 19th Century Irish and Italian New York gangs, the "Native Americans" and the "Dead Rabbits". Bill "the Butcher" Poole (DDL) leader of the Native Americans in cahoots with Boss Tweed, murders his rival the leader of the Dead Rabbits (Liam Neeson), and his son Amsterdam Vallon (DiCaprio) swears vengeance.
: Filming is supposed to begin this month in Rome, Italy. For the film 19th Century Gotham is being reconstructed on a massive level in a huge construction project at Cinecitta studios in Rome. Below is the url for a webpage full of great pics of the set.
Thanks for that link, Brent! I've been hearing bits and pieces about this movie, and trying my best to figure out how Leo was gonna be DDL's son! It sounded like a pretty bad match, to me. If what you say is correct, it makes more sense. I can more easily picture him as Liam Neeson's son, I think. At any rate, some first rate actors in the film, so it will be interesting to see what they make of it. I'm not a big Scorcese fan, but I'm willing to give a movie with these three guys in it a fair chance, for sure. The pics at the link are great.
