Goodfellas Cast - P 2012

Nicholas Pileggi is among the executive producers on the project, based on the 1990 Martin Scorsese-directed feature.

AMC is developing a television series based on the 1990 film Goodfellas, The Hollywood Reporter confirms.

Nicholas Pileggi, who co-wrote the Oscar-winning film with Martin Scorsese and penned the book the movie was based on, is set to executive produce the project.

Homicide: Life on the Street producer Jorma Zamacona will also executive produce, along with original producer Irwin Winkler and David Winkler.

Goodfellas starred Robert DeNiro, Ray Liotta, Lorraine Bracco and Joe Pesci, and followed Henry (Liotta) and his friends as they move up the mob hierarchy.

The film garnered six Academy Award nominations, including best picture, with Pesci winning a supporting actor Oscar as Tommy.
