Martin Scorsese’s De Niro, Pacino gangster epic ‘The Irishman’ set for 2018

18 August 2016 1:47 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The Irishman: Martin Scorsese’s crime movie set for 2018 debut after securing China distribution.

The Irishman unites Scorsese with Robert De Niro and Al Pacino.

We reported back in May that Martin Scorsese‘s planned crime movie The Irishman had bagged itself a $50 million distribution deal over in Cannes, but since then its all gone a bit quiet. Well, Scorsese is putting the finishing touches to his next film Silence, which we hear will hit cinemas later this year, but there is some good news as The Irishman looks set for 2018, so we won’t have too long to wait for the next great Scorsese gangster film.

The Irishman is set to star Robert De Niro and Al Pacino and is was even rumoured to be bringing Joe Pesci out of retirement (though it sadly seems that now that won’t happen). It is based on the novel I Heard You Paint Houses »

Robert De Niro and Al Pacino will star in The Irishman, for director Martin Scorsese...

It’s been a long, long time coming. Not since Casino have Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro collaborated on a film, but the pair are finally set to be reunited with The Irishman. And what’s more, they’re bringing Al Pacino along too.

The Irishman is based on Charles Brandt’s book I Heard You Paint Houses, and for some time, it’s been rumoured to be the project that Scorsese and De Niro would come back together for. Steven Zaillian has penned a screenplay, and it looks as if the funding has come together. As such, The Irishman is due to film in 2017, ahead of a release at the end of 2017.

Furthermore, Al Pacino will be co-starring in the movie as well. Joe Pesci had been linked with the movie, »

Will HBO’s ‘The Night Of’ Get a Second Season?

3 August 2016 7:30 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

HBO’s The Night Of was designed as a one-and-done miniseries, but as you know, any film or movie these days that is modestly successful is ripe for a sequel. Series executive producer Steven Zaillian says there have already been talks about doing a second season of the acclaimed series, which follows the story of a […]

"The Night Of" Second Season Considered

31 July 2016 10:05 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

On the surface, HBO's currently acclaimed and so far strongly rated mystery drama series "The Night Of" seems to be very much a 'one and done' style affair - an eight-episode self-contained event series about a complex murder case in New York City.

That may not be entirely true though as showrunner Steven Zaillian told the press (via THR) this weekend at the network's TCA presentation that a possible second installment is in discussion:

"We're thinking about it and if we come up with something we all feel is worthy of doing, we'll do it. This was designed as a standalone piece. … That being said, there are ways of certainly kind of taking what it feels like and what its about and doing another season on another subject."

Such a move wouldn't be unprecedented. The series is a remake of the five-part 2008 British mini-series "Criminal Justice", that version had Ben Whishaw »

6 Must-Watch Movies & TV Shows on HBO Now in August 2016: ‘Brooklyn,’ ‘The Aviator,’ and More

31 July 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

New Original Programming:

“Meet the Donors” (8/1)

“Dios, Inc.” - Season 1 Finale (8/5)

“Hitchcock/Truffaut” (8/8)

Hard Knocks: Training Camp with the La Rams” (8/10)

“El Negocio” -  Season 3 Premiere (8/12)

IndieWire Pick: “The Night Of” (Series Finale) (8/28)

HBO’s well-received limited series “The Night Of” will wrap up its eight-part whodunnit in late August. Steve Zaillian’s gritty drama, which examines a man’s fate after he wakes up charged with the murder of a relative stranger, debuted to rave reviews from critics and audiences. IndieWire’s Ben Travers writes, “By actively engaging on personal and political levels, Zaillian sucks the viewer into a nightmare scenario wholly dependent on two verdicts: first, whether or not Naz is found guilty, but also if he really did it.” Here’s hoping the series can maintain its slow burn thrills all the way to the end.

‘The Night Of’ Producers Clear Up the Mystery of Stone’s Eczema

30 July 2016 12:22 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The central murder case on HBO’s “The Night Of” isn’t the only puzzling element on the intriguing drama. One character’s malady has created an itch in viewers to learn more.

John Turturro’s streetwise lawyer Jack Stone suffers from a case of eczema that affects his feet so severely it overtakes every moment of his life outside of doing legal work. He wears sandals to air his feet out, joins a support group of other male eczema sufferers and consults multiple doctors for dubious remedies throughout the series.

The presence of eczema elicited more than one question during the Television Critics Association panel for “The Night Of” on Saturday to clarify its purpose — if there is one — on the show. Executive producer and writer Richard Price told reporters that BBC’s Peter Moffat suffers from eczema and therefore wrote it into “Criminal Justice,” the anthology series on »

It’s news that has every other network breathing a sigh of relief, given the way the show has dominated the race in years past. However, as we previously explored, HBO does have some other options in the drama realm when it comes to the Emmys race next year.

The final eight-episode season of “The Leftovers” will be premiering in spring 2017, HBO confirmed. In fact, it’s moving into “Game of Thrones’s” newly vacated slot — a comparison invoked by Bloys himself.

18 July 2016 7:32 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The HBO crime drama’s second episode reveals the truth will not set you free.

In the second installment of HBO’s crime drama The Night Of, “Subtle Beast”, suspected murdered Nasir “Naz” Khan (Riz Ahmed) is trapped and has nowhere to go. This episode goes past the streets and courtrooms on The Wire and Law & Order to delve deep into the dark trenches of the American prison system and what it’s like to be stuck inside it. The show paints a harrowingly realistic picture of the criminal experience through the eyes of a young brown man.

We open on the morning after the night of and Naz is still being held at the station for possession of a deadly weapon. He hasn’t been charged of any crimes yet but already he feels helpless and desperate for someone to believe that he is telling the truth. But as Stone (John Turturro) explains to him, it »
