While making the rounds to publicize his new film “The Gambler,” Mark Wahlberg told New York radio host Ralphie Aversa that his “next goal now is to get the movie made and start talking to Martin Scorsese about directing it.” (The audio is available via NJ.com.)
Wahlberg was an executive producer on HBO’s period drama, which starred Steve Buscemi as Prohibition-era Atlantic City kingpin Enoch “Nucky” Thompson and aired its fifth and final season this year. The actor is no stranger to television-to-film reboots — he produced the upcoming “Entourage” movie with Stephen Levinson and writer/director Doug Ellin — but “Boardwalk,” if the project comes to fruition, would be Wahlberg’s directorial debut. In the interview, Wahlberg comments on the end of Nucky by alluding to the possibility of a prequel: “We can always go back.”
Who do you think should direct a “Boardwalk Empire” movie?
