No stranger to the small screen—he’s directed quite a few ads this year along with Arcade Fire’s cool TV special—Roman Coppola is helming a comedy pilot for Amazon and he’s found his leading man. Deadline reports Gael García Bernal—who stars in Jon Stewart’s forthcoming directorial debut, “Rosewater”—will lead the Coppola, Jason Schwartzman and Jason Timbers-written project as “an enfant terrible who’s utterly devoted to his art as a conductor - but also to his image.”

Climate change. Do you believe in it? You should, you know. But if you don't, mind if I ask if James Cameron telling you it's real would change your opinion? Or Matt Damon? Or Jessica Alba? Or Ian Somerhalder? These are not hypothetical questions, not any more, much like “hey, I wonder what happens if a massive hurricane hits New York City?” isn't a hypothetical question any more. But anything Al Gore can do, James Cameron, Jerry Weintraub and Arnold Schwarznegger can do better, on Showtime, with inexplicable sequences of battleships and Lesley Stahl looking at a lake and saying, “This is a lake?”

For those of you who were desperate for a cinematic, widescreen translation of the ugly misogyny, easy jabs at Hollywood and unnecessary star cameos of HBO's bafflingly popular series "Entourage," well, you're in luck. After years of crawling towards cinemas, the "Entourage" movie that nobody is asking for is finally happening, at least according to the series' creator (and film's writer/director) Doug Ellin. Ellison tweeted "It's a go." Then slammed a Red Bull and vodka and yelled at his assistant.

Earlier this month, producer Rick Cleveland, speaking at the Vancouver International Film Festival, caused a bit of a minor stir when he suggested that Netflix's award-winning political series “House of Cards" wasn't going to last past a second season. Why? He claimed stars Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright liked making movies too much to stay locked into a TV schedule. But it turns out, Cleveland was hardly an authority to speak on behalf of the show.

So "The Counselor" opened this weekend and flopped fairly hard, but don't worry about Ridley Scott. Not only is he already in production on his Bible movie "Exodus," as per usual, he's got about a half billion projects coming up with his name stamped on them as an executive producer. And this one certainly has us a bit curious.

A moody procedural, starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, and directed by Cary Fukunaga ("Sin Nombre," "Jane Eyre") for HBO—that should pretty much explain why this is probably one of our most eagerly anticipated shows of 2014. But the fact that the trailers and teasers so far have looked even better than we could've dreamed is only making his an even more exciting prospect. And once again HBO has dropped yet another teaser, and damn, if this doesn't look like a knockout.
