What's hot in Hollywood now that "Dick Tracy" has been released? The mob is making a big comeback. The making of"The Godfather, Part III" has been well reported, but there are at least four other gangster films in production: "Miller's Crossing," with Albert Finney; "GoodFellas," a Martin Scorsese film, starring Robert De Niro, based on "Wiseguy" by Nick Pileggi "The Krays," about twin hoods who terrorized Britain in the 1960s, and "State of Grace" (its working title), with Sean Penn and Ed Harris.
U.S. fans can also look forward to a rush of foreign films about Vincent van Gogh, honoring this year's 100th anniversary of his death. Among them: "Vincent & Theo," a Robert Altman movie already shown on European TV; "Vincent and Me," a Canadian film about a 12-year-old girl's sketches sold to the Japanese as van Gogh's newly discovered childhood drawings, and Akira Kurosawa's "Dreams," featuring director Scorsese as van Gogh.
