Goodfellas Coming to the Small Screen

We may not have the Sopranos's anymore, but we may soon have some Goodfellas!

Twenty years after Martin Scorsese’s Mafia movie classic, TV execs are working on the small screen version of the flick. But they have big shoes to fill!

According to Entertainment Weekly, Nicholas Pileggi, the movie’s screenwriter and the author of Wiseguy, the book it’s based on, will likely be back to write the pilot.

It's unclear if Martin Scorsese will have a hand in the project, but Boardwalk Empire would have some serious competition if he did.

How do you feel about the classic making it to the small screen? Will you watch it?
