Wahlberg Wants A “Boardwalk Empire” Film

He may be mostly known for his acting or rapping work, but Mark Wahlberg has built a big career behind the scenes as a producer – especially over at HBO where his name has been on a bunch of their shows like “In Treatment,” “Entourage” and “Boardwalk Empire”.

In regards to that latter show, which recently finished its run, Wahlberg tells NJ.com (via Movies.com) that he plans to do for ‘Boardwalk’ what he has done for “Entourage” – namely give the show a big screen outing: “My next goal now is to get the movie made and start talking to Martin Scorsese about directing it.”

There’s no lack of confidence on his part, but of course the series ended in a way that it would be hard to continue. That’s why Wahlberg seemingly suggests a prequel, saying: “We can always go back.” Are you ready for some more time with Nucky Thompson (Steven Buscemi)?
