AMC has boarded a new TV adaptation of Goodfellas, which we first reported on in September 2010.

Nicholas Pileggi, who adapted his own book entitled Wiseguy into the Goodfellas screenplay, is co-writing the pilot script with Jorge Zamacona. Irwin Winkler, who produced Goodfellas, will executive produce alongside his son David Winkler.

Goodfellas, a 1990 Best Picture nominee directed by Martin Scorsese, told the story of Henry Hill (Ray Liotta), and his rise through the ranks of the Luchesse crime family.
