Scorsese and DiCaprio team up again for fourth film

Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio will reteam early next year on "Shutter Island," a Laeta Kalogridis-scripted adaptation of the Dennis Lehane novel. Pic is coming together quickly as a co-production between Paramount Pictures and Columbia Pictures, with production starting in March.

Paramount will supervise production and distribute domestically while Columbia is looking to distribute internationally.  The project will be a co-production between Phoenix Pictures, Scorsese's Sikelia and DiCaprio'sAppian Way banners. Mike Medavoy, Arnold Messer, Brad Fischer and Scorsese will produce. Lehane, Kalogridis and Louis Phillips will be exec producers. 

Drama is set in 1954, with DiCaprio in final talks to play U.S. Marshal Teddy Daniels, who is investigating the disappearance of a murderess who escaped from a hospital for the criminally insane and is presumed to be hiding on the remote Shutter Island.
