Directed by Martin Scorsese and with a cast that featured Jack Nicholson, Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon, Mark Wahlberg and Alec Baldwin, The Departed was one of the most brutal, exhilarating and memorable crime dramas of the decade - and now it's getting its own TV remake.

According to TheWrap, "The one-hour drama follows a young cop that goes undercover to infiltrate a ruthless Latino gang, which simultaneously plants its own man in the police department. 

"Set in present-day Chicago amid the shifting tides of warring ethnic drug gangs, the gritty, suspenseful drama follows the two embattled moles as they attempt to fulfill their mission and stay alive."

While it looks unlikely that the same stacked cast will return, we have high hopes that the tangled, multi-layered storyline of the original will translate well onto the small screen. 

Will it end like this, though?
