Aside from the rightfully lauded performances by Michelle Williams and Kenneth Branagh, the most impressive aspect of “My Week with Marilyn” was just how quick it took for the film to disappear from memory. A whispy vanilla meringue of a picture, those over at Fox 2000 have nonetheless spotted gold in its director Simon Curtis, and have set him up with a new romantic comedy.

If you’re a child of the ‘90s, perhaps you hold some nostalgia for the late Friday nights you may have spent watching T.G.I.F. on ABC, a touchstone for teen-friendly programming that catered to its audiences with titles like “Full House,” “Boy Meets World,” “Family Matters,” and so many more. In a roster of shows that mixed comedy ocasionally with real life "issues," “Sabrina The Teenage Witch” always seemed a touch out of place. Based on the popular Archie Comics of the same name from the ‘60s, the show lasted seven seasons off the charm of Melissa Joan Hart and the comedic presence of Caroline Rhea and Beth Broderick, yet stood out as a series steeped in fantasy and lore that was typically absent from the “T.G.I.F.” lineup.

While most of the film community’s attention is turned towards the recent news that Will Ferrell and Adam McKay are assembling the News Channel 4 team all over again for an “Anchorman” sequel, on a quieter front it comes as no surprise that both have several films in various stages of development over at their banner Gary Sanchez Productions. One of those is a reteaming of “The Other Guys” co-stars Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg in the previously titled “Turkey Bowl,” but now that film is receiving a whole new take from the men who took us on a trip with their “Hot Tub Time Machine.”

While the decade-long drought between feature films will soon end as Roman Coppola continues his work in post on "A Glimpse Inside The Mind Of Charlie Swan III" -- his sophomore effort following 2001's "CQ" -- he certainly hasn't been lacking in things to do. He's been writing, producing and helming second unit on films for Wes Anderson, Sofia Coppola and Francis Ford Coppola, and as part of The Directors Bureau has been making music videos and commercials. But this is easily the oddest entry of the bunch.

All those who complain about the liberal domination of Hollywood have never come across John Milius. A film school pal of George Lucas and Steven Spielberg, Milius had tried to join the Marine Corp, but was turned away due to his asthma. Instead, he channeled his frustrations into both a life-long obsession with firearms (he was paid for "Jeremiah Johnson" in antique weaponry, and has served on the NRA Board of Directors,) and making some of the most masculine, testosterone-filled movies of all time, both as an acclaimed writer and as a director. The basis for both Paul Le Mat's character in "American Graffiti" and Walter in "The Big Lebowski" -- the Coens are friends of Milius, and offered him the part of Jack Lipnick in "Barton Fink" -- he's one of film history's most singular, colorful characters.

Even without his longtime muse Penelope Cruz, Pedro Almodovar didn't miss a beat with actress Elena Anaya as his female lead in the Frankenstein-style tale "The Skin I Live In." The actress shined opposite a revived Antonio Banderas in an excellent role that should give her career a nice boost.
