Penny Marshall Returns to Directing with Baseball Biopic

11 December 2014 2:06 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Penny Marshall is set to return to the director's chair for the first time since 2001's Riding in Cars With Boys with a biopic that follows the life of baseball pioneer Effa Manley, who became the first woman ever to be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. Effa Manley rose through the ranks of the Negro Leagues in the 1930s and 1940s as the co-owner and business manager of the Newark Eagles, which went on to win the Negro World Series in 1946. She became the sole owner of the team after her husband and co-owner Abe Manley died in 1948.

Penny Marshall is obviously no stranger to baseball movies, directing the 1992 classic A League of Their Own, which followed the struggle to establish the first women's professional baseball league during World War II. Penny Marshall will also serve as executive producer of Effa, alongside screenwriter Byron Motley. Here's what the »

Robert De Niro's 10 best performances: Deer Hunter, Raging Bull

2 August 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

In 1995 and 1997, Robert Anthony De Niro Jr. had Heat and Jackie Brown released into cinemas. Not his best films or his best performances, perhaps, but mesmerising work in excellent pictures directed by master filmmakers: the former saw him convince for Michael Mann as the cool, meticulous leader of a gang of career criminals; the latter had Quentin Tarantino give viewers a dim crim whose uncontrollable anger contributes to the unravelling of a heist.

For a whole generation of moviegoers who have grown up since, however, the adulation that's universally showered upon De Niro must be perplexing. Occasionally he summons up a portion of his old intensity – his turns in What Just Happened, Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle are the (slim) picks of the last 15 years – but for anyone who got into movies from the late '90s on, he's the funny guy in Analyze This and Meet The Parents, »

Watch: Supercut Of Martin Scorsese's Use Of "Gimme Shelter" In 'Goodfellas,' 'Casino' & 'The Departed'

26 March 2014 8:17 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While there are many recurring motifs, themes and interests one can talk about when discussing the five-decade-plus long career of Martin Scorsese, when it comes to soundtracks, he's long shown an affinity for The Rolling Stones. Close pals with the rock 'n roll legends (he directed their 2008 concert doc "Shine A Light"), even since "Jumpin' Jack Flash" rumbled through "Mean Streets," he's kept an ear for opportunities to use the tunes of Mick 'n Keef. But one song in particular has been a favorite. "Gimme Shelter," the lead track to the band's Let It Bleed, has been used in no less than three Scorsese films: "Goodfellas," "Casino" and "The Departed." And so, naturally, someone has taken the time to paste together a supercut of that song in all three movies. And the result is a look at how one song is pretty damn useful for montage sequences, though if Scorsese never uses it again, »

Martin Scorsese jukebox: Wolf of Wall Street director's best music scenes

11 January 2014 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Martin Scorsese's latest movie The Wolf of Wall Street hits the big screen next week, and if you can look past the controversy you'll find a fast, funny and hugely entertaining look into the lives of some very bad men.

Naturally, The Wolf of Wall Street boasts a killer soundtrack with Foo Fighters, Cypress Hill, Devo and Bo Diddly among the many artists backing the stockbroker mayhem.

The heralded filmmaker has always had a keen eye (and ear) for marrying image to music, so with Wolf of Wall Street poised to open on Friday (January 17) in the UK, Digital Spy takes a look at 8 great uses of pop songs in Scorsese's career.

The Ronettes - 'Be My Baby' (Mean Streets)

Mean Streets wasn't the first film Scorsese directed (it followed Who's That Knocking at My Door? and Boxcar Bertha), but for many it signalled his arrival as a top-tier filmmaker. »
