Last week, we took note of a new business venture called Screening Room spearheaded by Napster founder Sean Parker. The proposed service would digitally stream the latest major-studio theatrical releases into the confines of private American homes for a hefty estimated fee of $50 on the same day as in-theater premieres, rendering a trip to the local cineplex less necessary than ever. Naturally, this radical new strategy would change the entire face of the industry, and has accordingly raised hackles on the production, distribution, and exhibition sides of Hollywood. As movie theaters struggle to stay relevant and profitable, Parker’s every press conference sounds like a death knell. And this weekend, both sides of this instantly contentious debate dug in their heels on their positions.

HBO rock drama Vinyl more than had our attention by its first trailers, but doubly so for Martin Scorsese’s direction of the two-hour pilot, much as he’d done for Boardwalk Empire. That said, where Scorsese never returned to direct more Boardwalk, the revered director hopes to stay much more actively involved in Vinyl, or so he says.

While Sony continues struggling to get their Evel Knievel movie off the ground, Paramount is developing their own biopic about the life of the famed daredevil with The Departed scribe William Monahan on board to write the screenplay.
