In my opinion, joe massino had an incredibly interesting career as a mobster. I think that it would def be Hollywood- worthy. If someone was to make a film on massino, who would u think would be best fit to play massino and some other mobsters like sal vitale, anthony graziano, phillip rastelli, george sciascia, vinny basciano, and frank lino?

I don't see him as that interesting. He rarely even gets discussed all that much on here. He is known, but I can't see a movie on him as all that interesting. Sorry.

Accardo interests me. He was supposedly close to Capone, and bridged a gap in time periods.

I think he's interesting too. He's a guy who goes back to the 70s and associated with the guys who were there in the 30s. He held power before the John Gotti days and very few are as young as he is

I'm joking. "The Big Rat" would be a great title, very fitting. If he didn't give up so many people maybe he would have a film and be a hero

They would probably turn a Joey Merlino flick into a common Brooklyn movie / Gotti with the main character trying to convince us that he's tough and likes to smoke cigars

If james gandolfini and frank vincent were alive id say james would be fit to play massino and frank would be good to play george sciascia.

Now that he's dead, I've always hoped for a Scarfo movie but a lot of those guys from that era are also still on the streets. So many plots/sub-plots from Philly in the 80s.

Massino had a long and interesting career in the mob in my opinion. I'm waiting for the prick to come out with a book. But it's too long for a movie. You've got his early days, Galante, three capos, on the lam, prison, being the boss, downfall, trials, turning rat and testifying. Mini-series would be better. Michael Chiklis is the first person that comes to mind.

And Philly is just begging for a mini-series. So much drama and action.

First thing I have to say is how could anybody want to get hooked up with a movie when they supposedly live the mob life? Gotti Jr. is a documented rat so we can understand his position. money always comes before honor and loyalty today. Anyway this Robert Deniro is a rat himself. A few years back he wore a wire to trap a guy who was trying to shake him down. Just look it up and you will see for yourself. So why would you want to get involved with Deniro when he's a rat himself. This Joey Merlino is a money hungry guy from all I read. But he does not deal with rats from what many have said. So now is he going to turn a blind eye to Deniro??? I think he also is going to be sentenced in September. Unless a new round of indictments get him caught up. Will be ready to see all that weather the storm

IIRC the book made him seem reasonably sharp and charismatic; there were some entertaining cat and mouse stories about the feds chasing him when he was coming up.

None of the carefully rehearsed shit Gotti did to get "his public" behind him.


Benny Fazio: How you doing Mr. Leotardo?
Phil Leotardo: I'm sitting there listening to WFAN and I go, isn't it that the kid who used to drive for Tony?
Benny Fazio: I'm on my way to the hospital.
Phil Leotardo: Well that's up to you.

Ricca and Accardo were too secretive. Nobody alive today knew them. Very few people knew them when they were alive. Cubs announcer Harry Caray was supposedly friends with Accardo, but I doubt he would have talked about him. He knew what was up. Got to have source material to get a good movie.That's where it all starts.

Goodfellas was all Henry Hill.

Casino was mostly Frank Cullotta, because Lefty was holding a bunch of things back. He never admits he was with the Outfit. Dreamed of getting out of that black book someday. Never happened.

How is he still alive? He's 76 years old, morbidly obese and had uncontrolled diabetes. Scientists need to study him.

Michael Mann is working with Don Winslow on a novel about Accardo and Giancana, the idea is to bring it to the big screen later. Mann has acces to a lot of info provided by Tony´s family.

I see how it "could" be interesting, especially from the perspective of Joe having to rebuild the Bonnanos, and get them back on the right path. I would think that this is no easy task, and he did seemingly succeed before it all fell through at the end. Not sure how many other times in American Mafia history did a family have to rebuild to that degree.

i hope this i heard you paint houses isnt a dud. think netflix spent 100mill. i think the mafia movie genre is done. you cant write anything original anymore. give me a check or donate it to the board boss if the make a movie on the mafia cops. i wouldnt even know how the angle would go and it probaly be dumb. but the mafia cops could make a good movie but at the end all they did all them hits for was money. so it probaly be no story to it. just some greedy cunts

A movie about Chin, Manna and the others who truly wanted Gotti gone after he took out Castellano would be good. It would nice to get the true story from the other side of things. Good luck getting Bobby to talk though, you have a better chance of bringing Chin back from the dead.

Went with my girl a few years back to see blackmass the johnny depp whitey movie. Visually it was great but the script was dumb. Some books just cant be turned into a 2 hr film. Better off being a hbo mini series

They should do something like Sopranos a weekly thing formthe early 70’s to now with all the players because they know the facts and they know enough to make it right ..

Because they will have from 70’s up to now they will have tons of factual material and 50 and 60-year-old people all the way down to teenagers will know the players because they grew up hearing the names even young guns they hear the rappers saying these guys names .

Just my two cents but I always thought Danny DeVito would be a great Carmine Galante and a movie about Galante could be really great
