Scorsese to assist Liberty campaign

From Associated Press

Martin Scorsese offered his moviemaking talent Tuesday to a campaign to reopen the Statue of Liberty to the public.

The "Gangs of New York" director will produce and narrate a television documentary on Lady Liberty to air in January, as part of an effort to raise money for new security measures.

The federal government has spent millions on upgrades, but about $5 million in work must still be done before visitors can again climb inside the statue.
