Well, with that "Daredevil" movie he signed up to direct last year still in need of a finished script (Marvel recently hired David James Kelly to take a crack at it), David Slade is going to go off and make something in the meantime, and it sounds like something a little more "Hard Candy" and less "30 Days Of Night."

At the recently concluded San Francisco International Film Festival, Kenneth Branagh was awarded the annual Founder’s Directing Award. Preceding a screening of the director’s 1991 film “Dead Again,” Branagh spoke to Jonathan Moscone, Artistic Director of the the California Shakespeare Theater, about his career thus far. Accordingly, the plays of William Shakespeare and Branagh’s interpretations of those works became the anchor for the two men’s conversation throughout the evening.

Well, this is moving along much faster than we had anticipated.

Well, the movie now has a big star attached.

Crime, California and some unsavory characters? Yep, Nick Cassavetes has been there, done that before, with "Alpha Dog" and the director is going to get gritty once again in the Golden State.

Man, it's been way too long since word of a new Nic Cage movie. But rest assured, he's bringing his trunk full of crazy wigs to a brand new film, and it sounds as improbable as everything else he's done recently.

Boom! That sound you hear is Paramount pretty much destroying any memory of "G.I. Joe: Rise Of The Cobra." The moderately successful movie was pretty much hated by critics (with good reason), and the fanboy core were also disappointed and probably didn't buy as many action playsets as Hasbro had hoped. But hey, a brand is a brand is a brand, and it must be continued, public indifference be damned! So here we have "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" (see, it already sounds edgier!) and now, the final poster has been unleashed on the masses. Can you handle it?

When Judd Apatow's "This Is 40" was first announced, it was described as not a sequel to "Knocked Up" by Universal even though the film is clearly a look at the lives of Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann) a few years after the events of that film. Now the new poster (like the recent trailer) plays with that tag describing the film as the "sort-of sequel to 'Knocked Up'. " Nice wink at that original claim, Uni.

In his ten rules for writing, Elmore Leonard forgoes the advice of Ernest Hemingway, and says: "Never open a book with weather." Well, Mickey Spillane isn't one for niceties or poetry, and he certainly lived by that code, as the late author's "Lady, Go Die!" doesn't mince words from the get go: "They were kicking the hell out of the little guy."
