Diablo Cody is a bit of maverick around Hollywood circles so it shouldn't come to anyone's surprise that she's set to tackle her directorial debut on a project formerly titled "Lamb Of God" with an eclectic cast in tow, including Julianne Hough, Russell Brand, Octavia Spencer, Holly Hunter and Nick Offerman. There's now one more addition to the line up in the form of former "Last Comic Standing" finalist Sarah Colonna.

Had Elizabeth Olsen shot the purportedly one-take horror film "Silent House" as her first movie, she says she would have been scared off making films altogether. "I made a joke to my agent, 'If this was the first film I had ever done, I don't know if I could have done one again,'" Olsen told The Playlist. "It was too difficult -- too draining and exhausting!" Luckily for the up-and-coming actress, she already had "Peace, Love And Misunderstanding" and "Martha Marcy May Marlene" under her belt, so she knew that the unusual way "Silent House" was shot -- "like doing a play, but over and over and over again" -- was not the norm. Now she shares with The Playlist some of the secrets behind the making of this psychological thriller.

With news yesterday that David Fincher was battling over an already $100 million budget on the original Netflix series "House of Cards," it now appears the rental/streaming company are interested in one of the most expensive shows already airing on television -- "Terra Nova." Fox canceled the show earlier this week but Netflix are rumored to be in talks with the network over reviving the show in the same way they will with another canceled Fox property -- "Arrested Development." The show reportedly performs well on DVR, so Netflix may represent the perfect new home for the sci-fi series.

You may know Ricardo De Montreuil best as the director of “The Raven,” not the James McTeigue-helmed Edgar Allen Poe actioner starring John Cusack, but rather the short film about a man named Chris Black who deals with the perils of having mysterious powers against the backdrop of a futuristic Los Angeles (watch it below). Well it looks as if Montreuil, who popped up on many in Hollywood’s radar with that short, could be taking a trip to the future once again.

There are many intriguing elements to this week’s release of “John Carter” beyond the discussed-to-death $250 million dollar (or so) budget. For one, it’s the live action directorial debut of Andrew Stanton, esteemed member of Pixar responsible for penning the “Toy Story” films and directing the beloved “Finding Nemo” and “Wall-E.” Then there’s the fact that it stars Taylor Kitsch, best known for his role as Riggins on TV’s “Friday Night Lights,” who will follow this release with another not-so-cheap little movie in Peter Berg’s “Battleship.” Finally, we’ve got the fact that it’s based on material nearly a century old that influenced everything from “Star Wars” to “Flash Gordon” to just about every science fiction movie of the past 50 years in between.
