Thanks to her anti-war and feminist positions, Jane Fonda has never been a friend to right wingers, so this latest bit of casting news is sure to ruffle more than a few feathers.

"Mirror Mirror" is the latest in a long line of Snow White stories -- "Once Upon A Time" on ABC is ongoing, as is the saga of Snow White and her Fabletown cohorts in the graphic novel series "Fables," with the film "Snow White and the Huntsman" not far behind. The Tarsem Singh-directed film, however, is the most kid-friendly of the bunch, with the evil queen character played for laughs by Julia Roberts. Even if this film only has a touch of the dark side, its stars Lily Collins and Armie Hammer insist "Mirror Mirror" is more modern, because Snow White learns to fight for herself, her prince, and her people. "Our Snow White has no huntsman," Hammer noted, "but it's an over-the-top family comedy. We're not trying to make 'Grapes of Wrath' here." And because it's a Singh film, the visuals are everything, as the two leads and the director shared with The Playlist.

College life is no stranger to Will Ferrell. The funnyman relived his student life streaking through the quad in "Old School" but in this next picture, he won't be the one doing beer bongs.

Listen, the Will Smith songs for the first two "Men In Black" movies weren't great. In fact, there were pretty cornball terrible. Yet, their earnest wholesomeness and the fact that they were actually about the movie, made them oddly endearing in a strange way and when "Men In Black III" was first announced, we figured it was a no brainer that Big Willie would step back behind the mic. We were mistaken. Last week it was announced that the pretty awful singer/rapper/whatever Pitbull would be penning the song and now the results are here. You've been warned.

With Natalie Portman recently signing on to spend most the year hanging with Terrence Malick on the probably-not-called-"Lawless"-anymore and "Knight Of Cups," it looks like her rumored appearance in The Wachowskis "Jupiter Ascending" won't work out. But her "Black Swan" co-star and another currently red hot star are now being lined up.

As a couple readers pointed out, Deadline has this in their report last week when Oscar Isaac joined "Therese Raquin" but we weren't sure if it was an error or official at the time. But it seems it is and while the film is losing one great veteran, it's gaining another actress who has experiencing a recent surge of popularity.

James Gray Teases Thriller 'The Gray Man' With Brad Pitt Might Be Next

While James Gray has become known for this thoughtful, gripping independent dramas, it was just a couple of years ago that he nearly made a splash with a big studio picture, "The Lost City Of Z" with Brad Pitt set to star. Near the end of 2010, Paramount yanked the cord on the project, and Gray left the movie and Pitt went on to work with Andrew Dominik on "Cogan's Trade." But it seems both Pitt and Gray stayed in touch. Just a couple of months later in early 2011, Gray signed to direct an adaptation of Mark Greaney's thriller "The Gray Man" and by late summer, Pitt had signed on to star. Not much has been heard since, but as Gray tells us, the project is still percolating and may be coming soon.

ND/NF '12 Review: 'Hemel' Takes An Unflinching Look At Broken Sexuality

Within the very first moments of "Hemel," a couple writhe naked in bed. Their playful banter and back-and-forth focuses on the unsubstantial equipment, which he laughs off with only a slightly bruised ego. It's only when he starts to rag on her pubic hair that she begins to unravel, disappointed that her lover would complain about tasting her hair. Within moments, he's lathering her with shaving cream, lovingly running the blade up and down between her legs. As he walks off to wash, she lies on her back, completely barren. She's fine being nude, but it's clear she hates being vulnerable.
