Aside from only a small role in "Hannah & Her Sisters," it's actually a bit surprising that John Turturro never starred in a Woody Allen movie. He seems like the perfect, neurotic Allen surrogate but alas it has never come to pass. The pair also crossed paths nearly 15 years later in the little seen comedy "Company Men," where Allen had a cameo role. Now, more than a decade on from that, the duo are set to share another film set, although this time, in a much larger capacity.

After the modest success of the low-budgeted "Chronicle," 27-year-old director Josh Trank seems to have been labeled a superhero guy by Hollywood. Even though the superpowered leads of his surprisingly effective found-footage flick never donned a cape, Trank was picked out by Fox (who bankrolled "Chronicle") as the man they wanted to direct their reboot of the "Fantastic Four" franchise. The young helmer's been non-commital about the project, though, and it seems like another film may have grabbed his attention, albeit one still firmly in the comic book world.

With one booze-soaked franchise coming to an end (Warner Bros. is wrangling to get the The Wolfpack back for "The Hangover 3"), it seems the hit R-rated hijinx of "Project X" has the studio excited that they may be able to keep the good times flowing.

Cropping up with all kinds of heat and big names being thrown around a couple of weeks ago, and then going quiet again, it looks as if Lee Daniels' "The Butler" is pushing ahead, and the cast is getting more intriguing with each passing day.
