Song One
In two different parts of the world, two estranged siblings go on with their lives. The brother is a passionate busker and would-be pro musician spending time singing his heart out in New York subways. The elder sister is in Africa, researching nomadic tribes in Morocco for her PhD. But one fateful night, a critical error in judgment will reunites them: Henry (Ben Rosenfeld from “Boardwalk Empire”) is in a coma after an accident and following an emergency call from his mother (Mary Steenburgen), Frannie (Anne Hathaway) drops everything to be by his side.

Oscar winner Melissa Leo (“The Fighter”) is heading back to television to co-star with Matt Dillion in M. Night Shyamalan’s “Wayward Pines.” Fox is putting together the event series based on Blake Crouch’s novel "Pines" and hopes to have it out by fall 2014. Described as a "Twin Peaks"-esque show (high hopes), the story follows Secret Service agent Ethan Burke (Dillion) as he searches for two missing federal agents in Wayward Pines, Idaho. Of course, not everything is at it seems in Wayward Pines and Burke only finds more mysteries. One of which is Nurse Pam (Leo) who tends to Burke when he winds up in the town hospital, only to become a lethal advisory with deep ties to Wayward’s secrets.

Around this time last year, "Les Misérables" was still a speck in Oscar prognosticators' eyes, but perhaps Anne Hathaway already sensed her pipes would be taking her places.

Last May, she started eyeing the movie "Song One," a picture she was slated to produce but wasn't yet locked to star in, but it looks like the wheels are in motion and some very interesting talent will helping to put this one together.

While it might appear that director Jonathan Demme has retreated from the mainstream in recent years, directing a string of documentaries including “Jimmy Carter Man From Plains” and a trio of Neil Young concert films, the director says he’s just been following the projects he finds himself drawn to. “It all depends on what I’m enthusiastic about at the moment, what presents itself,” Demme told The Playlist in an exclusive interview this week. “I love doing fiction. I love doing performance films and I love doing documentaries that don’t have music. I love to shoot and I love to shoot things I’m enthusiastic about.”

And it looks like she's got another musical project brewing, though it's not a sure thing just yet.
