HBO's 'The Newsroom' won't return until much later this year, even then taking a surprising season 3 bow-out to end the series, but the legacy of Aaron Sorkin parody remains as ripe as ever. Watch Amy Schumer and 'Sports Night' veteran Josh Charles capture that classic Sorkin style in new 'Inside Amy Schumer' parody 'The Foodroom.' And, yes, there's walk-and-talk.
In a move that really shouldn't surprise too many people, the ever-picky David Fincher is out of the director's chair for the upcoming (and untitled) Steve Jobs biopic, scripted by Aaron Sorkin. The 'Zodiac' and 'The Social Network' director has a reputation for being demanding, and it looks like Sony balked at his requested fee and level of control.
In 2010, director David Fincher, screenwriter Aaron Sorkin and producer Scott Rudin struck box office and Oscar gold with 'The Social Network,' which told the story of Mark Zuckerberg. Now, that same team is looking to officially reunite and tell the story of one of the few people in tech history bigger than the creator of Facebook: Apple co-founder Steve Jobs.
Last week saw HBO delivering updates on its highest-profile series, confirming final seasons for both 'True Blood' and 'Boardwalk Empire,' but it seems the TV reaper had one more axe to grind. Aaron Sorkin's oft-debated 'The Newsroom' will officially return for a third season, though the coming year will end the Emmy-winning Jeff Daniels drama altogether with a final run.
The HBO Aaron Sorkin drama 'The Newsroom' will close out its second season this coming Sunday with "Election Night, Part 2," a season that was a bit truncated by costly reshoots. To mark the occasion, we've got two new finale sneak peeks from 'The Newsroom''s newest closer, and an insider update on HBO's season 3 renewal status!
It seems concerns about the renewal chances of HBO's Aaron Sorkin drama 'The Newsroom' for season 3 proved unfounded, as series star Jeff Daniels took to Twitter to announce that the series would indeed return. Or will it? HBO claims that Daniels' announcement arrived prematurely, leaving the future of 'The Newsroom' not so set in stone as we might have thought.
Just a few days ago, concerns arose over HBO Aaron Sorkin drama 'The Newsroom,' whose production-challenged second season and modest ratings made it unclear if the cable network would opt to pursue a third season, given the delay in announcement. Now, Aaron Sorkin fans can breath easy as 'The Newsroom' season 3 will officially unfurl on the teleprompter in summer 2014!
HBO's 'The Newsroom' has been mired in controversy and debate from its very inception, whether by Aaron Sorkin's tense relationship with the media, or the uneven reception of the series itself. Most critics have come to consensus that the still-airing second season has marked a significant step forward, but are HBO or Sorkin himself dragging their feet on a third season renewal?
'The Trial of the Chicago 7' was one hot project in 2008, with Aaron Sorkin writing, Steven Spielberg directing, and Will Smith and Sacha Baron Cohen rumored to star as Bobby Seale and Abbie Hoffman, respectively. The project has been dormant for a while, but 'The Bourne Ultimatum' director Paul Greengrass might be the person to bring it back to life.
