Chris Weitz knows a thing or two about franchises. He helped kick off the "American Pie" series, dipped his toes in "The Twilight Saga" with "New Moon" and tried get things moving with "The Golden Compass," a less-than-pleasurable experience that he has spoken quite candidly about. But Weitz's next effort will find him fully in control of what goes on in the story, though it will be in a new medium for the filmmaker.

While Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio will be re-upping their bromance this summer, shooting the financial world drama "The Wolf Of Wall Street," one of the many brewing projects the director has bubbling in the background is his long gestasting biopic on the Chairman Of The Board, Frank Sinatra. Last we heard, powerhouse producer Scott Rudin ("The Social Network," "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo") came on board last March and while the film had a script from Phil Alden Robinson (”Field Of Dreams,” “Sneakers”), the plan was to hunt for a new writer to take a stab at the material. And it seems those steps are being taken.

While always a city bursting with creative and artistic talent, there was probably no time more fertile in New York City than than '70s and '80s.

Among that noise and ruckus, independent filmmakers were also making a big wave, capturing New York's vibrancy in stories that inspired a new generation of directors. And that time has been captured in the documentary "Blank City."
