Martin Scorsese's Bill Clinton Documentary Shelved Over Creative Control

23 January 2015 12:30 PM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Martin Scorsese's upcoming slate is already packed with an authorized Grateful Dead documentary, his rock & roll HBO series co-created with Mick Jagger and the planned Ramones biopic. However, another of the legendary director's projects, the partly finished HBO-backed documentary on President Bill Clinton, has been indefinitely shelved as the director and former Potus wrestle over control of the film.

According to New York Times, Scorsese and Clinton are butting heads over their interviews Frost/Nixon style, with the Goodfellas director unwilling to relinquish control of the questions and their content. »

Martin Scorsese's Bill Clinton film shelved indefinitely

23 January 2015 3:37 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Martin Scorsese's HBO TV documentary about Bill Clinton has reportedly been shelved.

The project - announced back in December 2012 - has ground to a halt due to disagreements between Clinton and producers, according to the New York Times.

The newspaper reported that the former Us President wanted more input into the film's interview questions and its final cut.

However, a spokesman for Clinton has stated that the claims were "inaccurate".

The film has been partly shot over the past two years, and would have seen Clinton making a philanthropic visit to South Africa.

Scorsese's spokesman has not commented on the dispute, but HBO stated: "[The film's] not happening soon but that doesn't mean it's not going to happen."

Back when it was first announced, Scorsese described Clinton as "a towering figure who remains a major voice in world issues".

He added: "Through intimate conversations, I hope to provide greater insight into this transcendent figure. »

​The 17 Best and Worst TV Presidents

22 January 2015 5:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The president of the United States used to be such a lofty figure, so far removed from the fantasy life of the American people, that he (or she) was seldom portrayed as a recurring character on TV dramas. But somewhere between Bill Clinton's saxophone solo on the old Arsenio Hall late-night talk show and Barack Obama's interview with comic Zach Galafianakis on "Between Two Ferns," the chief executive became a TV pop culture staple.

These days, you can barely change the channel without coming across a small-screen president, whether on ABC's "Scandal," CBS' "Madam Secretary," or NBC's "State of Affairs." Not to mention the about-to-launch seasons of Netflix's "House of Cards" and HBO's "Veep," whose ambitious lead characters (played by Kevin Spacey and Julia Louis-Dreyfus, respectively) will finally be settling into the Oval Office in this year's story arcs.

Of course, TV presidents are all over the map, »

Obama's State of the Union ratings the lowest in 15 years

21 January 2015 2:05 PM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

President Obama had his lowest viewership yet for his latest State of the Union address. In fact, this is the lowest viewership for a State of the Union speech in 15 years. Nielsen says 31.7 million viewers tuned in Tuesday evening to watch the president announce his 2015 agenda. But that's down 5 percent from last year, which in turn was down 12 percent from 2013. If you go back to Obama's first address in 2009, the most recent speech represents a 40 percent drop. The last State of the Union that had a lower viewership was Bill Clinton's final address in 2000. The address was carried live from 9:00 p. »

Charlotte Clinton Mezvinsky might be a little to young to realize it, but she was born into quite the political dynasty. But as mom Chelsea Clinton tells People, Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton are every bit the typical doting grandparents, and they're eager to help out with 4-month-old Charlotte, too!

Tom Cruise and Doug Liman reteaming on Mena

15 January 2015 1:17 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After collaborating on last year’s sci-fi actioner Edge of Tomorrow (or whatever it’s called these days), director Doug Liman and star Tom Cruise are to reunite on drug-trade thriller Mena, which is based on a spec script by Gary Spinelli.

According to Deadline, the film will be “a fact-based tale about Barry Seal, a pilot who, in the 1980s, was a gun runner, and drug trafficker who transported contraband for the CIA and the Medellin cartel. He was eventually shot to death by the latter in Baton Rouge. The title refers to Mena, Arkansas, where a lot of the illegal activity took place, under the noses of Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, and then-Arkansas Governor Bill Clinton.”

Assuming deals are closed, cameras will start rolling on Mena later this year, once Cruise finishes up with Mission: Impossible 5.

Best of Late Night TV: Gwyneth Paltrow Sings Show Tunes, Snoop Dogg Hosts 'Plizzanet Earth' (Video)

14 January 2015 10:52 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Goop sings! Gwyneth Paltrow belted out a few show tunes last night on "The Tonight Show" -- but not just any show tunes. She performed Broadway versions of Drake, Big Sean and Niki Minaj, and it was completely amazing -- especially her rendition of "I Don't F-- With You."

President Clinton made a pit stop at "Late Night," where Seth Meyers wasted no time asking if he'd be issuing change of address cards in 2016. His response? "I hope not because 2016 is the election year and I don't have any place to move." Way to stay cryptic, Bill. (Note: Mr. President talks about Hilary's potential run at the beginning of the clip, »

"It's really fun and Hillary and I are able to see her a lot because Chelsea and Marc and Charlotte live in New York, so we're here all the time."

Are the grandparents overstepping their bounds already by spoiling the little girl?
