Movie mogul Brian De Palma is revisiting his epic gangster film THE UNTOUCHABLES almost 20 years after it became a huge hit.

The filmmaker is keen to make prequel The Untouchables: CAPONE RISING in time for the 20th anniversary of the 1987 original.

The story will focus upon the young AL CAPONE as he rises to become a Chicago, Illinois criminal kingpin.

The original film centred upon lawmaker ELLIOT NESS' efforts to arrest the infamous gangster, played by Robert De Niro.
