I now invite you to take a break from staring out the window and wondering what the new Paul Thomas Anderson movie with Daniel Day-Lewis is going to be like, and rotate in your chair to stare out of a different window and wonder what the new Martin Scorsese movie with Robert De Niro is going to be like. It’s been just about a year since we learned that Scorsese’s new mob drama (featuring the all-star team of De Niro, Joe Pesci, Al Pacino, Harvey Keitel, and Bobby Cannavale) was for sure happening, and as if in commemoration of that anniversary, today brings the news that production will soon get up and running.
Break out the pasta maker – Dev is coming back to New York. Yes, Master of None is officially returning stateside for its Season 2 premiere next month, and Aziz Ansari has all the artful shenanigans captured on film with a first trailer and posters.
If you thought perhaps we were overdue for Mr. Robot news, you weren’t wrong. Not only do we now know that Elliot and fsociety will be back for Season 3 later than expected, but they’ll also have Bobby Cannavale and a new series regular in tow.
In news that might make you go “Uhh…,” John Turturro is reportedly filming a secret spinoff to The Big Lebowski. Turturro is said to be shooting the new film, which is based on his salacious Jesus Quintana character from the Coens’ cult classic, under a misleading production title in New York. The only thing more surprising than this movie is its bizarre plot.
Last Week Tonight host John Oliver rails often enough against the HBO series being mistaken for journalism; it was only a matter of time the series itself would put the Spotlight on actual press. And so, to cap off a piece highlighting the plight of print journalists, Oliver recruited Vinyl star Bobby Cannavale, Rose Byrne and more for their very own Spotlight parody, Stoplight.
Even diehard fans of HBO’s Scorsese-Jagger driven Vinyl knew that Season 2 would bring about some significant changes, but it looks like the record skipped after all. Despite setting a new showrunner after a formal Season 2 renewal, HBO has officially abandoned plans for Vinyl, effectively cancelling the prestigious flop.
For all the time and effort HBO’s Vinyl took getting out of the studio, the Martin Scorsese-Mick Jagger joint certainly skipped a few beats in its February debut. That didn’t stop HBO from ordering a second season, but now showrunner Terence Winter will depart, as the ‘70s music drama retools creatively in Season 2.
Let’s face it, when Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger collaborate on a new rock drama at HBO, it’s getting a second season. Still, following an inauspicious start in the ratings, Vinyl has been confirmed for a second season to air in 2017, just one episode into its run.
As if we couldn’t tell that HBO’s 2016 Jagger-Scorsese fronted Vinyl wouldn’t be one of the more exciting debuts in years, a new set of trailers and some seriously wall-worthy key art seal the deal. See (or hear) the future for rock and roll with our latest look at the February premiere!
Seemingly in production forever (and without a name), HBO’s Mick Jagger-Martin Scorsese music drama Vinyl hit all the right chords by its first trailer, even if its February premiere managed to push back Game of Thrones. Now, a second trailer fleshes out a full cast the likes of Bobby Cannavale, Olivia Wilde, Ray Romano, and many more.
