That untitled rock ’n’ roll show has been brewing since 2010 and was once expected to go into production in early 2014, but now HBO is finally ready to move forward with it.  HBO just put in a series order for the drama, which stars Bobby Cannavale as Richie Finestra, a New York City record executive with a knack for discovering top talent.

Martin Scorsese is set to direct the pilot episode and he’ll also be an executive producer alongside Mick Jagger, Rick Yorn, Victoria Pearman, Emma Tillinger Koskoff, George Mastras and Terence Winter.  Winter will also serve as showrunner.  Hit the jump for more on the upcoming series including the complete cast lineup.

A number of new images from Woody Allen’s latest film Blue Jasmine have made their way online.  The pic stars Cate Blanchett as a New York City housewife who travels to San Francisco to be with her sister (Sally Hawkins) after losing all of her money when her husband (Alec Baldwin) turns out to be a white collar criminal.  As we saw from the fantastic first trailer, the film finds Allen navigating considerably darker territory than his recent efforts, and the culture clash between Blanchett’s socialite character and the more blue collar sensibilities of Hawkins, Andrew Dice Clay, and Bobby Cannavale is incredibly enticing.

Hit the jump to take a look at the Blue Jasmine images.  The film also stars Louis C.K., Peter Sarsgaard, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Max CasellaBlue Jasmine opens on July 26th. [Update: We've updated the article with more high-resolution images.]

Woody Allen looks to have finalized the cast for his next film, and a few exciting additions have been announced.  We already knew that Sally Hawkins and Cate Blanchett would be leading a cast that also includes Alec Baldwin, Michael Emerson and Bobby Cannavale, and now Variety reports that Louis C.K., Peter Sarsgaard and Andrew Dice Clay will round out the cast.  Bradley Cooper was mentioned as a possible addition at one point, but he may have run into some scheduling issues.  Max Casella and Alden Ehrenreich are also listed in the announced cast.

Though story details are under wraps, Louis C.K.’s casting is interesting for a number of reasons.  First off, C.K. has great comedic timing as well as dramatic talent so he’s a welcomed addition, but he’s also been hailed as a bit of a successor to Allen with his New York-centric, critically hailed series Louie.  I’m beyond eager to see how he fits into Allen’s next film, and the writer-director has assembled an unsurprisingly impressive ensemble for his next effort.  The untitled film will shoot this summer in San Francisco and New York City.
