Well, this was probably inevitable. With Christian Bale taking on two Terrence Malick movies in 2012, "Lawless" and "Knight of Cups" which are shooting back-to-back, it made the prospect of him appearing in Darren Aronofsky's dream project "Noah" all the more unlikely. Well, now it's official as Variety confirms his exit, but reveals another intriguing name as possibility to take over.

Geez, just when you think you have a handle on this year's awards race, the Sundance Film Festival has dropped their first wave of titles headed to Park City in January, and this is the start of the Oscar journey for many movies.

Not be rude or crude, but the biggest thing about Alice Eve's Hollywood movie career so far has been her considerable assets. They pretty much did half of the heavy lifting in her role as the braless babysitter in "Sex & the City 2" and the entire plot of "She's Out of My League" revolved around how hot she was. But Eve showed she can play smart and beautiful with her stint on the fucking terrible final season of "Entourage," which also displayed she could rise above brutal material. She was also charming in the underseen Brit flick "Starter For Ten" many years back, which brings us to "Star Trek 2," because guess what fanboys, she's joining the Enterprise.

Well, here's a side we haven't really seen from Elijah Wood. Okay, maybe once, when he played the silent Kevin in "Sin City." Anyway, it looks like Frodo is diving in head first into the remake of the 1980 cult slasher pic "Maniac."

After delivering acclaimed performances in ensemble projects like “The Hurt Locker” and “The Town,” Jeremy Renner is poised on the edge of mainstream success, especially given the fact that his next role finds him sharing the screen with Tom Cruise in the highly anticipated sequel, “Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol.” But after that, he'll be in a lead role in “The Bourne Legacy,” and Renner told The Playlist that his work in 'Mission: Impossible' more than prepared him for his next action franchise. “Tom [Cruise] has prepared me for, especially ‘Bourne,’ but all of them – ‘Hansel and Gretel’ and then ‘The Avengers,” he said during press rounds this week in Los Angeles.
