According to MTV, director Martin Scorsese is in talks with Robert De Niro to join the cast of an upcoming sequel to the mob hit The Departed.
The possibility was brought up from an interview with star Mark Wahlberg who said the following: “We may do another one, because it’s based on a Hong Kong film [‘Internal Affairs’], and there is a trilogy. So we may do a sequel with a new cast, and a prequel and bring back the rest of the guys.”
Wahlberg then added that the director is talking with Robert De Niro, among a few other people, who he’s worked with in the past.
If true, this would mark the first time in Scorsese’s career in which he’s revisted one of his films.
