In a film of standout moments and colorful characters, Clive Owen was hard to forget as the noble Dwight in "Sin City". Dwight makes a few appearances in Frank Miller's "Sin City" comic world, so it would only make sense that Owen would reprise the role, even if his character repeatedly undergoes excessive transformations. But if "Sin City 2" were to shoot this summer, as Robert Rodriguez is now aiming for, then the director will need to get on the phone.

Navigating and maintaining a career in music is a perilous journey, one where paying your dues doesn't always lead to a big break. But for 26-year-old Chris Thile, he's already reached some pretty big career highs, nabbing a couple of Grammys for both his solo work and his efforts with the platinum-selling Nickel Creek. But in a move that surprised fans in 2006, Nickel Creek went on indefinite hiatus forcing Thile to reasses and in many ways, start over from scratch.

With the dude from Neon Indian popping up in a recent set photo, and Malick having lensed indie friendly folks like Arcade Fire, Iron & Wine and Fleet Foxes last year during pre-production at Austin City Limits, it seemed like his upcoming "Lawless" was shaping up to be some kind of "The Tree Of Life: Pitchfork Edition." But a fascinating, oddball development makes this movie continue to be a total headscratcher.

While biopics on N.W.A. and Tupac have been talked about for a while now, and seem to be stuck in development, it looks like a movie about one of their contemporaries is not only moving forward, but has made a brilliant and bold casting choice: Michael K. Williams (aka Omar from "The Wire") will be playing Ol' Dirty Bastard in "Dirty White Boy." Fucking yes.

While omnibus projects generally tend to be hit and miss affairs, they are intriguing in that they usually give directors a chance to try something they wouldn't or couldn't normally do in a feature, as well as exercise their skills within the tighter constraints of the format. Or in the case of "The Turning," it will allow a couple of actresses the chance to get their feet wet behind the camera.

While most of us on staff were far from fans of Sofia Coppola's last picture, "Somewhere" (a picture that does have its defenders, nevertheless), the filmmaker is so gifted, and has enough goodwill from her earlier pictures, that we're more than happy to follow her wherever she's going. And in the last few weeks, filming got underway on her latest, "The Bling Ring."
