Three More To Join Dicaprio And Scorsese On Shutter Island

by | 26 February 2008

The cast for Martin Scorsese's upcoming drama Shutter Island has swelled, as three new additions have been confirmed.

Already starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo, Sir Ben Kingsley, Michelle Williams and Patricia Clarkson, the film is to begin shooting on March 6th.

And now Max von Sydow, Emily Mortimer and Jackie Earle Haley have joined the roster, according to Variety.

Adapted from Dennis Lehane's 2004 novel, the film tells of two US marshals (DiCaprio and Ruffalo) who travel to the titular Massachussetts island to uncover the truth behind the disappearance of a woman from a mental facility.

The pair's efforts to crack the case are hampered by deceitful hospital staff, a hurricane and a riot by asylum inmates which leaves the detecting duo stranded on the island.

Von Sydow - who was most recently seen as Jean-Dominique Bauby's father in The Diving Bell and the Butterfly - is to play a hospital physician, while Little Children star Haley's appearance as the psychotic Rorschach in upcoming graphic novel adaptation Watchmen will be followed by an equally unstable turn as one of the Shutter Island inmates.

And Mortimer, set to appear in The Pink Panther 2, is to play the escaped woman of whom DiCaprio and Ruffalo are in pursuit.

Shutter Island is set to be released on October 22nd 2009 in the US.
