    Barry Levinson Returns To The Diamond With Hank Aaron Biopic

    It seems the baseball movie is back in vogue in Hollywood. While the genre pics are generally well-received stateside, studios and the like have been reluctant to put too much money behind them in recent times, as the sport doesn't play well internationally, where box office dollars are more imp...

    Barry Levinson's 'Diner' To Become A Broadway Musical With Tunes By Sheryl Crow

    The history of movies being turned into Broadway shows (and vice versa) has been happening for decades, and while it certainly won't stop anytime soon, the road is littered with the carcasses of failed productions.

    Eric Stonestreet To Play Fatty Arbuckle In Barry Levinson Directed 'The Day The Laughter Stopped'

    Levinson Talks Prospect Of Helming Mob Epic 'Gotti: Three Generations'For someone who's almost incontestably one of the greatest living American novelists (there will always be naysayers...)

"Goodbye, Columbus is mostly forgotten, but fairly decent, but "Portnoy's Complaint," "The Human Stain" and "Elegy" (an adaptation of "The Dying Animal") were all disasters of varying degrees, despite excellent source material.

    Barry Levinson To Direct Oklahoma City Bombing Movie 'O.K.C.'

    You gotta give up it up for Barry Levinson. While the track record has been mixed, it's certainly been interesting, as the famed director has mixed it up quite a bit with his last few films, moving from comedy in "Man Of The Year" to pointed satire in "What Just Happened," tossing in a documentary w...
