Scorsese Secures The Finance For Silence So shooting can start immediatelyIt seems a strange world where someone like Martin Scorsese can't secure the funding for absolutely anything he likes.

Exclusive: David Oyelowo In Four New Selma UK Posters The ides of marchDespite its Best Picture nomination, Selma is currently billed as the Film The Oscars Forgot. But don't let that Academy Awards snub and its ensuing fallout, likely to linger into a second week, dampen your anticipation.
