Oscar-winning director Martin Scorsese and actor Leonardo DiCaprio are to team up again for a new film, according to trade magazine Variety.
Scorsese won an Oscar last year for The Departed
The pair will begin shooting Shutter Island in the US early next year.
Based on the Dennis Lehane novel, DiCaprio will play a US security officer investigating the disappearance of an escaped murderer.
Scorsese and DiCaprio have worked together on three films, including last year's Oscar winner, The Departed.
It is not the first time Lehane's novels have been turned into films.
Mystic River was made for the big screen by Clint Eastwood, which saw Sean Penn and Tim Robbins win acting Oscars.
Another of his novels, Gone Baby Gone, is the basis for a drama directed by Ben Affleck. Its UK release has been postponed indefinitely because of the plot's similarity to the Madeleine McCann case.
Lehane will also be an executive producer on the new Scorsese film.
