With their promising adaptation of Arthur Miller's "A View From The Bridge," with names like Vera Farmiga and Mia Wasikowska who were attached to star failing to materialize, Robert Connolly and Anthony LaPaglia (who previously teamed on "Balibo") have now set their sights on a film about one of the biggest international political figures in recent times, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.

While “The King of Kong: Fistful of Quarters” documentarian Seth Gordon got off to a rough start in his narrative filmmaking career with the Reese Witherspoon and Vince Vaughn-starring “Four Christmases” in 2008, he’s had a nice rebound with this past summer’s serviceable comedy “Horrible Bosses,” and a slate of projects that include the Melissa McCarthy and Jason Bateman vehicle “Identity Theft” (shooting this summer), an ill-advised remake of “WarGames,” and the long-gestating faux documentary redo of “The King of Kong.”

While many fans will probably just exclaim “Why can’t we just watch it already, Yo!,” patience is certainly a virtue when it comes to the highly anticipated return of the Vince Gilligan-created AMC series “Breaking Bad.” A show that actually needs no introduction at this point, it’s long been rumored that the fifth and final season would be split into two separate halves, much like all young adult adaptations do nowadays in an effort to milk fans' anticipation. And well, looks like that will be the case.

Well, here's an interesting change up to Warner Bros. fall calendar, and one that is sure to get people talking...The studio has moved Ben Affleck's "Argo" to October 12th, taking the date previously assigned to "Gangster Squad," leaving the ensemble crime flick without a date at the moment. Both films boast massive, marquee-worthy casts but it seems WB is making a solid awards season move with Affleck's pic.

When Disney snatched up the Black List script "Saving Mr. Banks" back in February, not only was it one of the hottest buys of the year so far, there was added oomph by the fact the studio was already looking to cast Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep for the lead roles.

Here's a project that has been stuck in development hell, that we kind of figured was left for dead. In various stages of development for nearly a decade, "We're The Millers" saw folks like directors John Morris and Sean Anders, and actors Will Arnett and Steve Buscemi go through the revolving door. Last summer reports surfaced that Jason Bateman would take over the lead role, but now it looks like another casting change up is in the works.
