Make no mistake, there were more than a few concerned fans when last year Warner Bros. tried to put the pieces in place for their long-developing remake of the cult classic "Akira." The project went through two directors in one year (Albert Hughes and Jaume Collet-Serra) before being shut down this past January. From casting that rounded up a bunch of young, familiar and white faces to the setting, which was dropped into New Manhattan, to the concept of splitting the story into two movies, almost every idea being tossed around was met with harsh scrutiny. Even from actors trying out for the gig.

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.
