The rock ‘n’ roll pilot currently being developed by Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger for HBO just moved a step closer to its early summer shooting slot, with the addition of Olivia Wilde to the cast list.
The House actress will join Bobby Cannavale (Boardwalk Empire, Nurse Jackie) in the as-yet-untitled project, in which he plays protagonist Richie Finestra. A record executive, Finestra works to revive his label by trying to find the next big thing amongst all the sex and drugs ubiquitous in 1970s New York. Wilde will play Devon Finestra, a former actress and current wife to Richie, who reassesses the direction of her life when the strain of her husband’s business decisions begin to wreak havoc within their family.
The credentials of this pilot are intimidating, with Scorsese set to direct the pilot as well as produce it along with Jagger. If that wasn’t impressive enough, »

The Directors Guild of America has just announced their nominees for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film for 2013. The nominees are hardly a surprise (these are actually the five I predicted) and include some of the biggest names in the industry, such as Martin Scorsese (The Wolf of Wall Street) and David O. Russell (American Hustle).
Other highly predictable nominees include Alfonso Cuaron for his brilliant work on Gravity (the best film of the year) and Steve McQueen for 12 Years a Slave. It’s interesting to note that this is where most of the competition has centered throughout awards season, with these two taking a vast majority of the awards. However, while favor started out in McQueen’s corner, the awards over the past month have shown that Cuaron is the clear favorite, making this award his to lose.
The nominations were somewhat interesting to predict this year. Cuaron, McQueen, »

Opting mostly for history-based spectacles, the Directors Guild of America has nominated Alfonso Cuaron (“Gravity”), Paul Greengrass (“Captain Phillips”), Steve McQueen (“12 Years a Slave”), David O. Russell (“American Hustle”) and Martin Scorsese (“The Wolf of Wall Street”) for its top feature film award.
The winner will be announced Jan. 25 at the 66th DGA Awards ceremonies at the Century Plaza Hotel, based on voting by the 15,000 DGA members.
It was the eighth DGA film nomination for Scorsese, who won in 2006 for “The Departed.” Russell picked up his second DGA nomination, two years after receiving a nod for “The Fighter” while the DGA nominations were the first for Cuaron, Greengrass and McQueen.
“It’s beyond humbling,” Russell told Variety. “I never expect anything especially since I didn’t get it last year for ‘Silver Linings Playbook.’”
Russell said that the film may have resonated within the DGA because of its exuberance and sincerity. »

Martin Scorsese is riding a wave of critical acclaim for his new film The Wolf of Wall Street, but we're still not quite sure what's next for the director. While this is nowhere near confirmed, a new report reveals the filmmaker may be interested in making a One Direction movie.
The 71-year-old director made an uncredited appearance in Morgan Spurlock's concert documentary One Direction: This Is Us, and he was reportedly turned on to their music after his daughter Francesca gave him one of the British pop group's CDs. Here's what an unidentified insider had to say.
"Martin is very passionate and enthused about the music of One Direction."
Nothing official is in the works, as far as we can tell, although, if he does make a One Direction film, or even their next music video, it won't be the first time he's dabbled in a music-based production. Among »
