I would immediately sign up for any project that featured Ethan Hawke and Martin Scorsese. They won't be collaborating as actor and director, though I hope this will begin a fruitful partnership. This first pairing features Hawke as director and Scorsese as producer. The Last Movie Stars, Hawke's second documentary as a director, focuses on the life and love of Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward.
They had one of the longest-lasting marriages in Hollywood. Working together onscreen and off, they used their fame for philanthropic efforts, including Newman's Own foods. The film will feature archival interviews from the couple, who had worked on a memoir before Newman's death. One of their daughters reached out to Hawke to shepherd the project, and he recorded new interviews with folks like George Clooney, Sally Field and Scorsese himself.
The six-part series will premiere later this year on the new streaming service CNN+, moving to HBO Max after that.
