"Through [Martha Pinson's] vision, the great cast and dedicated team, this story will resonate for years," said Scorsese in a statement.

"'Tomorrow' is a great script. The dialogue is brilliant and believable; the reversals and surprises are well placed and powerful. The characters and situations are vividly drawn," said Pinson.
