While speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Taylor Sheridan talked about how his daily life is very similar to what happens in Yellowstone. In addition to that, Sheridan revealed the exit plan he had in mind, which featured exclusively working with Martin Scorsese.

That was my dream and I already had it. It was a great escape from the fact I was a failing actor living in West Hollywood. The plan was always to become a big movie star, then move back to a ranch and just do movies with Martin Scorsese when I felt like it.”

In case you didn’t know, Sheridan made a name for himself writing a trifecta of critically acclaimed films — Sicario (2015), Hell or High Water (2016) and Wind River (2017). He ended up calling them his “modern American frontier” trilogy.

While speaking to Empire, Martin Scorsese talked about the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The legendary director revealed that he tried to watch Marvel movies but just couldn’t because they were not cinema.

I don’t see them. I tried, you know? But that’s not cinema. Honestly, the closest I can think of them, as well-made as they are, with actors doing the best they can under the circumstances, is theme parks. It isn’t the cinema of human beings trying to convey emotional, psychological experiences to another human being.”

More than four years after Martin Scorsese said this, he has been proven right as the Marvel Cinematic Universe is at an all-time low as far as Box Office revenue as well as general public interest are concerned.
