Martin Scorsese’s latest documentary, The 50 Year Argument, is set to premiere on HBO Sept. 29 at 9 p.m. ET.
The documentary, directed by Scorsese and David Tedeschi, looks at The New York Review of Books and its founding editor Robert Silvers. “I have learned so much over the years from The New York Review of Books—it’s given me so much that I jumped at the chance to make this film,” Scorsese said in a press release. “And [Tedeschi] and I both welcomed the challenge of making a film that reflected what is so unique about the Review, really, a film about the adventure of thought, and, as Colm Toibin puts it, the sensuality of ideas.”
The Wolf of Wall Street‘s P.J. Byrne has joined Martin Scorsese’s currently untitled HBO rock ‘n’ roll pilot.
The currently untitled drama is set in 1970s New York and will follow Richie Finestra (Bobby Cannavale), a record exec trying to resurrect his label as punk and disco are breaking into the city’s drug- and sex-fueled music scene. Byrne has been cast in the role of Scott Levitt, Finestra’s partner. READ FULL STORY
Ray Romano is the latest star to join the cast of HBO’s upcoming rock ‘n’ roll pilot, executive produced by Mick Jagger and Martin Scorsese and written by Terence Winter.
The pilot follows a record executive struggling to revive his label in the midst of the onset of punk and disco in 1970s New York. So far, Bobby Cannavale, Olivia Wilde, Juno Temple, Max Casella, Jack Quaid, and now, Romano are set to star.
Olivia Wilde will co-star in HBO’s untitled rock ‘n’ roll pilot from Martin Scorsese, Terence Winter, and Mick Jagger, EW has confirmed.
According to HBO, the pilot, set in 1970s New York, explores the drug- and sex-fueled music business as punk and disco were breaking out, all through the eyes of a record executive trying to resurrect his label and find the next new sound.
Wilde joins co-star Bobby Cannavale, who plays Richie Finestra, the founder and president of a top-tier record label (American Century Records) who undergoes a crisis of character when confronted with a life-altering decision. She will play his wife, Devon Finestra, a former actress/model who lived a Bohemian life in 1960s New York. Richie’s crisis causes strain on their family and propels her to go back to her former lifestyle.
Production is expected to start early this summer.
This marks a return to television for Wilde, who previously starred in Fox’s medical drama House from 2007 to 2012. Winter and Scorsese previously worked together on HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, which is ending after the upcoming fifth season.
Copper better watch out. Soon the BBC America series may not be the only mid-19th century New York-based TV show on the air. Martin Scorsese’s epic film about the rise of organized crime in America, Gangs of New York, is looking to make the jump from the big to the small screen.
Scorsese and Miramax announced Thursday that they and GK Films are developing a TV series based on Scorsese’s 2002 film Gangs of New York, which starred Daniel Day-Lewis, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Cameron Diaz. The historical crime drama racked up ten Oscar nominations, including Best Picture, Best Actor, and Best Director (and Best Song — is it crazy for us to hope U2 will lend some tunes to the TV show as well?).

The United States’s 42nd president is finally getting his close-up.
HBO announced today that Martin Scorsese will direct and produce a documentary about Bill Clinton for the cable channel. This will be the Oscar winner’s fourth collaboration with HBO; Scorsese helmed a pair of HBO documentaries in 2011 and 2010, as well as the pilot of Boardwalk Empire the latter year. The new film will be made with Clinton’s full cooperation — much like 41, the HBO doc about George H.W. Bush that premiered last summer.
