New Project from David Chase

Here's something interesting: According to the ArtsBeat blog on NYTimes.com, Sopranos creator David Chase will be creating a new mini-series for HBO centered on the early days of the movie industry.

Called "Ribbon of Dreams," according to the blog the series:
"...would follow two characters through the birth and development of the American motion picture industry. The two protagonists, a mechanical engineer and a cowboy, will begin working for D.W. Griffith, and encounter the likes of John Wayne, Bette Davis and Billy Wilder as they rise through the business."

I am never usually fond of historical fictionalizations (see, "Chaplin"), but who knows? Maybe it will interest more people in the silent era. (And I did love The Sopranos.)
