UPDATE: Aaron Sorkin has clarified that a revival of The Newsroom isn’t something he’s actively working on, even though it’s something he would love to do. Watch his explanation from The Late Late Show with James Corden.
Aaron Sorkin‘s cable news drama series The Newsroom ended back in 2014 after only three seasons. But as we’ve seen time and time again in the past few years, that doesn’t mean the show can’t return. And if Aaron Sorkin gets a little less buy, there’s a chance The Newsroom might make a comeback just in time to tackle one of the most tumultuous and tense periods in the history of journalism.

Aaron Sorkin returns to television with The Newsroom, and this first trailer makes the show out to be so very Aaron Sorkin. For fans of The West Wing and Sports Night, that’s probably all you need to hear.
For those who aren’t predisposed to love Sorkin’s work, here’s the attraction in The Newsroom: Jeff Daniels, playing a big-time, buttoned-up news anchor who finally lets his real personality fly, and then has to deal with the career fallout that results. There are a few potential red flags in this trailer: Sorkin’s near-trademark treatment of women; the possibility that the main figure is a political mouthpiece in search of a character; and a reliance once more on Sorkin’s classic “one man fighting the good fight” approach.
But good lord, Jeff Daniels just looks great. He’s an actor that is often dismissed, I think, and the brief couple minutes of this trailer may be enough to change that for many people. Read More »

Most audiences probably wouldn’t recognize Josh Pence from his big role in The Social Network — after all, his face was completely edited out of the film — but it looks like the part’s paid off for Pence all the same. Pence has just joined the cast of The Social Network writer Aaron Sorkin‘s upcoming HBO pilot More As This Story Develops, along with Broadway stars John Gallagher Jr. and Thomas Sadoski. Scott Rudin, who also produced The Social Network, is executive producing with Sorkin.
More As This Story Develops revolves around a cable news anchor named Will McCallister (Jeff Daniels) and his executive producer Mackenzie (Emily Mortimer) as they attempt to get their show back on track after a massive staff shake-up. Gallagher will play the part of Jim, who develops a crush on the show’s associate producer Maggie (Alison Pill), while Pence will play Maggie’s boyfriend and the show’s senior producer Rob. Sadoski will be an executive producer who left Will’s series to work for Will’s former protege. Olivia Munn and Sam Waterston are also set to star. [Deadline]
After the jump, Annette Bening and Robert De Niro consider new projects with the Little Miss Sunshine team and David O. Russell, respectively.
