Atlantic City, 1921. In a city whose fortunes have soared in the wake of Prohibition, Nucky Thompson is paying a steep price for wielding ultimate power in “the world's playground.” Steve Buscemi returns as Nucky in Season 2 of this hit HBO drama series that follows the continued rise of organized crime at the dawn of Prohibition. Though the 1920 election he successfully rigged is over, Nucky finds himself the target of a federal investigation for vote tampering--and an insurrection by those he counted among his closest allies. All the while, top mobsters like Arnold Rothstein, Lucky Luciano, Meyer Lansky and Al Capone wait in the wings, looking for the chance to grab a bigger piece of Nucky's pie. Michael Pitt, Kelly Macdonald and Michael Shannon co-star.
Martin Scorsese directed the pilot episode of Boardwalk Empire, which was created by Terence Winter, with the director taking home an Emmy Award for Best Direction in a Drama Series. It isn't known if Boardwalk Empire series creator Terence Winter will be involved with a movie, but if it does happen, it wouldn't be the first time Mark Wahlberg has brought an HBO TV series to the big screen. He produced Warner Bros.' highly-anticipated Entourage, which hits theaters in June.
It's worth noting that the final season of Boardwalk Empire featured actor Marc Pickering as a young Nucky Thompson, so it's possible that the movie could bring him back as well. Would you like to see a Boardwalk Empire movie? Chime in with your thoughts below.Read More

When we last saw Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) and the rest of the gang, Atlantic City had been turned upside down by Eli Thompson's cooperation with the FBI, the war between Chalky and Dr. Valentin Narcisse and the all-out war in Chicago. Seven years is a long time to allow that dust to settle, but if the real-life history provides any guiding light, there may be even more turmoil in 1931 than there was in 1924.Read More
