Though “Boardwalk Empire” has only one season left in the tank, hopefully, fans of the show can find solace in the fact that the Martin Scorsese/Terence Winter rock ‘n’ roll pilot for HBO is still moving forward. Olivia Wilde and Juno Temple have most recently joined the cast as the pilot is set to begin production this summer.

Grand Budapest Hotel, Wes Anderson
Exclusive: Filmmaker Wes Anderson has directed eight feature films so far and his latest, the upcoming caper comedy cum melancholic 1930s period film set in a fictionalized Eastern Europe, “The Grand Budapest Hotel," hits theaters in limited release (NY/LA) this weekend. The movie is one of his most delightful and “Wes-Anderson”-y: it’s intricate, stylized, exquisitely crafted and detailed. And yet, apart from being funny (and hilariously vulgar at times), the dolorous bent the movie possesses as an age of fascism overtakes a refined era of elegance is deeply moving, thought-provoking and strangely feels very personal.

Mozart In The Jungle
If Amazon Studios is trying to get into the streaming game alongside Netflix, they've got to step up their PR game a bit. While we did know they had put a bunch of pilots online this week, including Roman Coppola's "Mozart In The Jungle," we had no idea some peeks via clips were available too. In fact, we stumbled across these completely by accident—but we're glad we did.

Sofia Coppola Fairyland
A young woman coming of age, the culture of celebrity and art.... it's all very familiar territory for Sofia Coppola so perhaps it's no surprise she's gravitating to a new gig with just those elements.

David Gordon Green
The world of independent cinema isn't an incredibly lucrative one, and it's fairly common for bigger name independent filmmakers to spend time between movies making commercials or music videos to pay the rent and/or their costly drug habit. When we spoke to Mark Romanek, the music video auteur who had continually come up against roadblocks while trying to get big studio projects like "The Wolf Man" and "Cinderella" off the ground, said that the commercial world was a comfortable space for him as an artist. Now we have some news spots from David Gordon Green and Roman Coppola, both of which are partially animated, that show that you can have a whole lot of fun in a short amount of time.

Is there any doubt that Arcade Fire can pretty much do whatever they want at the moment? The Montreal-based band has become nothing short of a phenomenon, with an ambition and reach far beyond that of their peers. So when it was revealed that they would follow their appearance on "Saturday Night Live" this weekend with a half hour concert, it was just another example of the far reaching vision for their music. And it went down last night, and if you missed it, here's your morning brew.

In spite of the disaster that was Amazon’s scripted series/continuation of the film, “Zombieland,” the company isn’t content to get out of the scripted content game altogether. The massive online provider of everything has purchased two additional pilots to turn into series: “Bosch," based on the series of popular procedural novels written by Michael Connelly, as well as “Transparent” starring Jeffrey Tambor. Amazon also has its eye on “The After,” from “X-Files” creator Chris Carter. But for our purposes, the most interesting of the bunch is “Mozart in the Jungle” from Jason Schwartzman and Roman Coppola, about the classical music scene in New York.

Commercials can allow filmmakers to keep their muscles toned and play with a decent budget, and they can make some pretty decent money for themselves in the process. It's an attractive offer for those who might be waiting for their next feature to line up, or just looking to keep the skills honed between gigs. The ad circuit has been attracting high-caliber talent for a long time; the likes of Joe Wright for Chanel, Wes Anderson for Hyundai and Nicolas Winding Refn for Yves Saint Laurent and a couple more filmmakers familiar with the promo world have some new material to show off.

Ah, to be young, beautiful, French and caught between two persistent and handsome men. That's the basic premise of Wes Anderson and Roman Coppola's obviously whimsical series of shorts for Prada, and the third and final installment has now arrived bringing the story to a close.
