So what happens when you win an Oscar? Your long-developing project gets the kick in the pants it needs to get made. And that's just what happened for "The Descendants" writers Nat Faxon and Jim Rash. Originally set for director Shawn Levy ("Real Steel") in 2007, "The Way, Way Back" was first delayed by the WGA strike of that year, and was stuck in limbo before finally coming back to life last fall. After the pair took home an Oscar for the screenplay for "The Descendants," everything started moving fast, and with a pretty great cast on board.

Not Fade Away

Are you ready to rock? Well, whether you are or not, "The Sopranos" creator David Chase's "Not Fade Away" is coming with some guitars and drums to nab your attention this fall.

Led by the trio of Jack Huston, Will Brill and John Magaro, with Brad Garrett, Bella Heathcote, James Gandolfini and Lisa Lampanelli in supporting roles, the coming-of-age tale centers on three Italian-American kids, (Magaro, Brill, Huston) who form a rock band in the 1960s. The legendary Steve Van Zandt of Bruce Springsteen and E Street Band fame produced the soundtrack, and the film itself looks like it could be an interesting piece about shifting cultural tides, particularly in an immigrant community.

"Not Fade Away" is the Centerpiece Selection at the New York Film Festival and opens on October 12th.
