In Brief ...

• Over music and gumbo served in a historic New Orleans nightclub, pianist and hit songwriter Allen Toussaint will join the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame.

Today’s celebration was planned in a perfect spot for Toussaint and his fellow inductee, the late rhythm
and blues singer Ernie K-Doe.

• The art house division of Sony Pictures Entertainment said it had invested in Chinese director Zhang Yimou’s first film since he designed the Beijing Olympics’ opening and closing ceremonies last year.

Sony Pictures Classics said it formed a “production partnership” with Zhang for his adaptation of the Coen brothers’ 1984 movie “Blood Simple,” and has bought its distribution rights in North America, Latin America, Australia and New Zealand.
