Although his recent films like "What Just Happened" (2008) and "Man of the Year" (2006) underwhelmed at the box office, he has had some success on the television.
His 2009 biopic of Jack Kevorkian, "You Don't Know Jack," received Emmys and critical acclaim.
Next up for Levinson is the long-gestating "Gotti: In the Shadow of My Father," a film about crime boss John Gotti, and the ecological disaster film, "The Bay."
