It appears things are finally moving on the long gestating supernatural-crime thriller, "Solace," which Anthony Hopkins has been attached to since last fall. In case you need a refresher, the film will follow a psychic doctor, played by Hopkins, who works for the FBI and is on the trail of a serial killer. And this movie has been in the works forever with a batch of writers (Ted Griffin, Sean Bailey, James Vanderbilt), actors (Morgan Freeman, Bruce Willis) and directors (Shekhar Kapur, Mark Pellington) coming and going at various points.

After dipping his toes in studio waters for "The Green Hornet," Michel Gondry is headed to Cannes to unveil his much more lo-fi/indie "The We & The I," a mysterious project that will follow a group of high school kids on the bus home on the last day of school. But the ever-busy helmer is also in the midst of shooting his next effort, "Mood Indigo, " which -- if the set photos are anything to go by -- will see Gondry firmly in his unique and creative wheelhouse.

Did anyone catch the medieval action picture “Ironclad?” We said it was “made of flimsy fabric,” but with a cast consisting of Paul Giamatti, James Purefoy, Brian Cox, Derek Jacobi, Kate Mara, Jason Flemyng, Jamie Foreman and Aneurin Barnard on board, how could it be all bad? Well apparently the production of helmer Jonathan English’s film was steeped in difficulties and lost talent like Bob Hoskins, Robert Carlyle, Pete Postlethwaite, Richard Attenborough, William Moseley, Colm Meaney and Angus McFayden along the way.

A focus on professional procedure has always proved strong in Martin Scorsese's work, from Robert De Niro's arduous training in “Raging Bull” to Henry Hill's daily paranoia in “Goodfellas,” so it should come as no surprise that the master director has signed on to produce a story involving the creation of one of the world's most respected and revered car brands.

Whether you're a sports nut or not, some of the finest documentaries of the past few years have been found on ESPN's "30 For 30" series. Kicking off in October 2009 and ending in December 2010 (which about a dozen more films added in 2011), the endeavor gave feature filmmakers creative control to helm docs about any sports subject that they were interested in, and the tactic resulted in some very strong work. Some of the highlights that premiered on the channel included "The Two Escobars" by Jeff and Michael Zimbalist; "Catching Hell" by Alex Gibney; "Winning Time: Reggie Miller vs. The New York Knicks" by Dan Klores and much more. In short, the series has spawned some utterly fascinating stories, and the good news is, there's more on the way.

'Harry Potter' Scribe Steve Kloves To Write & Direct Legal Thriller 'Defending Jacob'

Steve Kloves served as a screenwriter on seven of the eight 'Harry Potter' movies, so he has experience penning good adaptations (“Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban”), and not so good adaptations (“Harry Potter and the Philsopher’s/Sorcerer’s Stone”). Okay, maybe that’s not the fairest of assessments as the quality of the 'Potter' films seemed to hang on how well the directors interpreted the scripts, which remained consistently decent throughout. Although, perhaps the franchise’s greatest achievement from a screenplay perspective was turning the rather dull fifth book into one of the most enjoyable films in the series…and that was the one script written by Michael Goldenberg. But then he went and wrote (alongside a plethora of hacks) “Green Lantern,” so it’s all relative, we guess.
