Of the many projects that crossed the desk of Martin Scorsese over the years, "Frankie Machine" was one of the most promising. Based on the novel by Don Winslow, the book was optioned way back in the early 2000s and was initially eyed as a long awaited reunion between the director and his famed collaborator Robert De Niro. It didn't come to pass, and in 2007 Michael Mann came on board with Alex Tse ("Watchmen") tasked with revise the story which had a script by Brian Koppleman and David Levien. And not much has been heard since. Despite that, curiosity still lingers around the project...why? Because the concept is pretty great.
