Are you ready for a return to Goodfellas? Deadline reports that AMC will develop Martin Scorsese's classic 1990 mob movie as a potential weekly series, and though Scorsese (who directed the pilot of HBO's Boardwalk Empire) isn't involved with the project, the network did manage to secure returning player Nicholas Pileggi to script the show and Irwin Winkler to produce. Pileggi's actually been involved through every iteration of the project, since he also wrote the book, Wiseguy, on which the original Goodfellas was based. What do you mean, you still think this is a funny idea? Funny, how?
