Following the success of Boardwalk Empire, Martin Scorsese and Terence Winter are once again partnering on a new HBO series titled Vinyl. Set in 1970s New York, the series will explore 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. The Rolling Stones band member Mick Jagger will also be joining Scorsese and Winter on the show as a producer, and Scorsese will once again helm the pilot. Though not much else is known about the series yet, we can only assume based on Winter’s track record, that it will be well worth watching. Plus it promises an amazing soundtrack at the very least.

Fresh off last year's conclusion to "Boardwalk Empire," HBO's Prohibition-era portrait of corrupt Atlantic City pol Enoch "Nucky" Thompson (Steve Buscemi), Martin Scorsese's showed no signs of throttling back in 2015. In addition to directing the pilot of HBO's highly anticipated rock 'n' roll period piece, "Vinyl," and wrapping production on the long-gestating "Silence," Scorsese is back in the mob drama saddle, executive producing Nick Sandow's second feature, "The Wannabe." Read More: "See Andrew Garfield in First Images from Martin Scorsese's 'Silence'" Sandow, best known for playing Litchfield's Joe Caputo on "Orange is the New Black," wrote, directed, and co-stars in the film—with echoes of Scorsese's own "Goodfellas"—which stars Vincent Piazza ("Boardwalk Empire") as Thomas, a young man from the Bronx eager to get in with the mob in the early 1990s.

Jimmy Stewart and John Wayne starred in the 1962 John Ford-directed original. The pair played a lawyer and a cowboy who teamed up to kill the outlaw leader Liberty Valance (Lee Marvin) who was terrorizing a frontier town.
The remake is tipped to be set in a relatively contemporary period, such as as 1980s Western Pennsylvania during the collapse of the steel and auto industries, but no final decision has yet been made.

Another remake? Shoot me.
Variety reports that the latest classic to get the remake treatment is John Ford’s 1962 film, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance. The original starred John Wayne, James Stewart, Vera Miles, and Lee Marvin.
While the original was set in the old west, Variety reports that the remake may be set in a relatively contemporary period, such as 1980s Western Pennsylvania amid the retrenchment of the steel and auto industries. The decision by Paramount, who is producing the film, has not yet been made.
According to the report, Terence Winter, known for his screenplays for Wolf of Wall Street, Boardwalk Empire, and The Sopranos was working on a script for the film but has since backed out. There is no writer attached now.

Matt Jackson, the president of production at Im Global, is producing the remake. The project may be set in a relatively contemporary period, such as 1980s Western Pennsylvania amid the retrenchment of the steel and auto industries, but no decision has been made.
The studio has been seeking a writer for the remake. Terence Winter, whose credits include “The Wolf of Wall Street,” “Boardwalk Empire” and “The Sopranos,” had earlier been attached to “Liberty Valance” but is no longer involved.
The original film starred Stewart as a newly arrived lawyer and Wayne as a cowboy who team up to kill the outlaw leader Liberty Valance (played by Lee Marvin), who has been terrorizing a frontier town. The black and white film was directed by John Ford and released by Paramount in 1962.

A creepy security guard blackmails a wealthy kleptomaniac in “A Patch of Fog,” a low-stakes, low-budget, low-yield thriller that attempts to turn a straightforward stalking case into a twisted story of friendship and mutual loneliness. Conleth Hill (Lord Varys on “Game of Thrones”) and Stephen Graham (Al Capone on “Boardwalk Empire”) are up to the task, but first-time feature director Michael Lennox has trouble making sense of a relationship that vacillates between bromance and sociopathy. There’s a good movie here about the peculiar bond between men of different social strata, but Lennox and his screenwriters, John Cairns and Michael McCartney, never quite locate it. Prospects for wide distribution outside the U.K. are similarly murky.
Fresh off last year’s Oscar-nominated short “Boogaloo and Graham,” Lennox takes baby steps into features with this simple, noir-tinged pas de deux, which relies mostly on the evolving relationship between these two men »

The Emmy Awards are just one "whyyyyy?" after another. Nothing about this award show makes a lick of sense. Why does it take itself so seriously? Why are the categories so random? (As host Andy Samberg said, "Orange Is the New Black is now officially a drama and Louie is officially jazz.") Why didn't Broad City get nominated? Did the voters get their wisdom teeth pulled every day this year? Peg me gently with a chainsaw! In our golden age for award shows, not to mention for TV, why are »
