Sopranos ‘s Winter Penning Scorsese’s Empire

ON

Former “The Sopranos” executive producer/director Terence Winter will write Martin Scorsese’s HBO project “Boardwalk Empire,” produced by “Entourage” duo Mark Wahlberg and Stephen Levinson, reports Variety.

The drama, which hasn’t yet been ordered to pilot, is based on Nelson Johnson’s book “Boardwalk Empire: The Birth, High Times and Corruption of Atlantic City,” which revolves around the now-gambling mecca’s early 20th century origins.

Winter has been busy on two different film projects for Scorsese: the adaptation of “The Wolf of Wall Street” at Warner Bros. and rock ‘n’ roll epic The Long Play. He’s also collaborating with Gary Ross on an untitled NASCAR project for Universal.
