When Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger collaborated on the Rolling Stones documentary “Shine A Light” they conceived an idea for a “Casino”-like movie set in the music biz of the 1970s. That was in 2010. Than in 2011 Scorsese and Jagger took the idea to HBO and brought on “Boardwalk Empire” writer Terence Winter to help develop the idea. Two years later and it finally looks like the project is ready to move forward with a lead actor.

Given the five thousand things Martin Scorsese is doing at any given moment, we kind of forgot about this project, a music drama with his long time Rolling Stones bud Mick Jagger, that was set up last summer over at HBO. Penned by "Boardwalk Empire" (on which Scorsese serves as executive producer) and "The Sopranos" writer Terence Winter, it was first announced under the working title "History Of Music," and was initially envisioned by Jagger as a feature film that followed two friends who work in the music industry across 40 years. William Monahan had actually penned a script over at Paramount where it was going under the title "The Long Play" that Scorsese was eyeing to direct. But now that it's over at the cable channel, it has changed focus, though it's no less exciting.

It seems after decades of trying to get along, the Glimmer Twins are content to just not hang out together. Keef Riffhard (aka Keith Richards) has been popping up in the "Pirates Of The Caribbean" movies and last fall released a highly acclaimed memoir "Life." As for Mick Jagger, he's gone ahead and formed a new supergroup, the dubiously named SuperHeavy, which features Dave Stewart, Joss Stone, Damian Marley and A.R. Rahman and now he's getting ready for a rare return to the big screen in his first starring role in over a decade.
