When you hear the words "prequel" and "sequel," the last name you might imagine is fiercely original filmmaker Martin Scorsese. But now, following his Golden Globe victory and unprecedented box-office success, the legendary director is reportedly considering bringing back "The Departed." "We really didn't know what to expect [when we made it]," star Mark Wahlberg said. "I'm fascinated with that [gangster] world, but I'm from that world. I didn't really think that the rest of the world would respond like it did." Revealing Scorsese's purported plans, Wahlberg added: "We may do another one, because it's based on a Hong Kong film ['Infernal Affairs'], and there is a trilogy. So we may do a sequel with a new cast, and a prequel and bring back the rest of the guys." Either movie would mark the first time Scorsese revisited one of his own films, and Wahlberg said the director is already lining up assistance from some old friends. "They're talking to Robert De Niro and a couple of other people," he said. "Anybody who is anybody wants to work with Marty." ...

Jennifer Garner has kicked butt on "Alias" and kicked up her heels on the dance floor in "13 Going on 30." Now she hopes to kick her career into overdrive with a red-hot Hollywood script concerning teen pregnancy. "I am about to work on a little independent movie called 'Juno,' " she said, naming the soon-to-film follow up from director Jason Reitman, the Golden Globe-nominated phenom behind "Thank You for Smoking." Reached for comment, Reitman confirmed the news hesitantly. "Jen Garner? Where are you getting your information from?" he grinned, sheepishly adding: "I can't wait to work with Jennifer Garner." Of the film's plot, Reitman said: "It's about a 16-year-old girl who gets pregnant and gives her baby up for adoption then starts dating the adoptive father." Ellen Page ("Hard Candy") will play the title character, and Michael Cera ("Arrested Development") is also attached. Laughing, the director added: "[Garner] plays the adoptive mother, but that information is not out yet. ... Man, you guys are sneaky!" To further the scoop, the 34-year-old Mrs. Affleck said this of the character: "I play this woman that can't have children of her own and is trying to adopt Juno's baby." Reitman, Garner and the others will begin shooting the film — which will include a high-powered, grunge-fueled soundtrack — later this year. "It's gonna be Jen Garner like you've never seen her before," Reitman promised. "She's amazing." ...

Here's a bit of news that will either leave you scratching your head wondering what we're talking about or writing an angry fan letter to director Peter Segal: There will not be a Hymie in next year's "Get Smart" movie. "I don't know right now that that character is in the movie," revealed Steve Carell, who'll play bumbling secret agent Maxwell Smart opposite Anne Hathaway's Agent 86. "But there is a lot that you will remember from the TV series." For those not familiar with the show, Hymie was the all-too-literal robot sidekick who would hear such phrases as "Go jump in the lake" and, well, do exactly that. With or without Hymie, "Get Smart" will start filming in March. ...

Producer Edward Bass lined up a star-studded cast for "Bobby," and this week he was at the Golden Globes searching for the hundred or so superstars he'll put into his next high-profile flick: A remake of the 1963 comedy classic "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World." "We're gonna educate a young audience, because it's gonna be a little bit like 'Polar Express' meets 'Sin City,' " Bass explained. "We're gonna do what ['Mad' director] Stanley Kramer would have done if he was 40 years old today." Using a mix of CGI and new footage, the producer plans to retell the insane story of more than three dozen comedy stars searching for buried treasure, mixing celebrity cameos with "Polar Express"-like representations of the "Mad" stars who've passed away. "We'll have a hundred stars, plus the 43 originals — like the Three Stooges will go into animation, and then Adam Sandler or Billy Crystal can run in and grab their fire hose," Bass grinned. The producer had one more dream cameo: "I'd like to get Bill Clinton to do the sax." ...

After "Clerks II," Kevin Smith has taken a sabbatical from his View Askewniverse "for the time being," though he recently told us he could "definitely see revisiting ['Clerks' characters] Dante and Randall" again someday. " 'Clerks' was what I felt in my 20s, and 'Clerks II' was what I felt in my 30s," the man better known as Silent Bob explained. "So I felt like if I were in my 40s and I had something personal to say, my first inclination would be to go back to Dante and Randall and do a fictionalized version of [documentary] 'Seven Up.' " Smith added that he has abandoned plans to revisit "Dogma" in the future. "If I was going to make a 'Dogma II,' it would have to touch on Islam, and I don't know if you've ever noticed, but those cats don't take too kindly to jokes," Smith mused. "If I was single and I didn't have a wife and kid, I might sort of entertain the notion, but now I've got people I'm responsible for. It's one thing to put your own life on the line; it's another thing to risk harm to those you love." ...

Lauren Graham, Steve Carell, a stable of animals and a whole lot of water will star in this summer's "Evan Almighty," the big-budget "Bruce Almighty" sequel, and Graham told us that if the movie is half as much of a spectacle as the shoot, there will be plenty of reasons to see it. "Because there is a huge flood, because it's the Noah's Ark story to some degree, and because there are animals — I think people will be amazed by how much of it is real," revealed Graham, who plays the wife to Carell's conceited news anchor. "And [you'll be amazed] by how much the animals actually did and how much actual water was poured on our actual heads to replicate this insane journey." The movie will flood theaters nationwide June 22. ...

Ben Foster played a winged mutant in the latest X-Men film, but in the currently filming "3:10 to Yuma," the 26-year-old actor will prove he's no angel as he plays an assassin out to rescue his outlaw posse leader, played by Russell Crowe. Christian Bale also stars in the film, which is directed by "Walk the Line" filmmaker James Mangold. A remake of the 1957 classic, "3:10 to Yuma" refers to the train a captured outlaw must board in secret — but with a handful of colorful killers on his trail, there's a good chance some old-fashioned shootouts are going to go down. "I play Charlie Prince, Russell Crowe's vice president who goes on a killing spree while trying to get his boss back," Foster grinned. "I'm vice president of being a bad man." The "3:10" train is due to arrive in theaters October 12. ...

Stop the presses! Despite widely reported rumors to the contrary, "Deadwood" star Timothy Olyphant wants to set the record straight: He is not in the upcoming movie based on the "Hitman" video game. "God bless the Internet for putting it out there," he laughed, shaking his head. "That sounds like a fun job, but that's not a for-sure thing." Olyphant added that he's barely familiar with the game, and there's a good chance that he won't end up playing the deadly Agent 47. "I'm familiar with the fact that there's this dude in a black suit and a red tie with a bald head who just seems to probably kick ass," he said. "But that's about all I know."
