Director Martin Scorsese and writer Terence Winter, who worked on HBO’s "Boardwalk Empire," are rejoining with the premium service to work on a rock ‘n’ roll epic based on an idea from Mick Jagger, who will also partner on the project, reports Nellie Andreeva at Deadline.com.
The project, called "History of Music," will track two friends through 40 years in the music industry, the article says. The idea started as a feature at Disney before moving to Paramount, where Scorsese was slated to direct. But HBO is now making an agreement with Paramount to create a pilot based on the idea, with Scorsese getting the first chance to direct it if the project moves forward.
Scorsese, Jagger, his Jagged Films partner Victoria Pearman and Winter are expected to executive produce the "History of Music" project, Andreeva writes.
