Well, that didn't take long. Mere hours after producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura confirmed "Transformers 4" was coming, it seems a director and release date is all wrapped up and ready to go.

Right now, it's slightly under four years since we last saw a Guillermo Del Toro-directed movie in theaters. By the time his next film, the massive-scale monster movie "Pacific Rim," hits theaters, it'll be close to five. Of course, it barely feels like he's been away: last year's "Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark" had his name all over it, while he nearly helmed "The Hobbit" before Peter Jackson took the reins back, and will maintain a writing credit on the film, while his consulting work at DreamWorks Animation, and busy media presence has kept him in the headlines all this time.

At the movies, heroes often save the day, get the girl and say all the best lines, but in real life, that's rarely the case. For Richard and Mildred Loving it was their quiet resolve, and the simple motivation that they were stuck in an unfair and injust situation, that saw them battle for years to attain the very simple right to live together, as husband and wife, in their home state of Virginia. "The Loving Story" is a respectful and at times, eye-opening chronicle of their pursuit to be able to live an honest life.

While it's coming on three years since Michael Mann's last feature film, the divisive gangster pic "Public Enemies," he hasn't been sitting idle. His most recent endeavor has been the HBO horse racing drama "Luck" starring Dustin Hoffman, which was immediately renewed for a second season shortly after the first episode aired last month. But he's been keeping his eye on the big screen, signing onto and circling a number of projects in the past year, and now another has come across his desk.

That Paramount wants another to make another "Transformers" film has been no secret, and much of the fall was peppered with various rumors (they were going to shoot two new films back-to-back, Jason Statham would star, shooting would begin at the end of 2012), but today comes something resembling more concrete word, even if it still leaves a lot of unanswered questions.

Mark Neveldine & Brian Taylor Say There's Already Talks About A 'Ghost Rider 3'; Still Considering 'Crank 3D'

There is no doubt when watching a movie directed by Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, that it was made by anybody else. The pair made their name with kinetic and electric "Crank" films, and recently graduated to comic tenptoles, helming the upcoming "Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance." Known for their unorthodox methods -- which includes strapping on roller blades, and grabbing a camera so they can get right into the action -- the film they make are distinctly their own, and comic book movies have never quite looked the way 'Vengeance' does. And while they haven't yet decided on what their next project will be, if things go well, they could be working with Nicolas Cage again very soon.

Absent from the director's chair for nearly a decade, Billy Bob Thornton is on a tear behind the camera. Last spring he unveiled his Willie Nelson documentary "The King Of Luck," and he's currently in Berlin premiering his latest effort "Jayne Mansfield's Car." And it seems he's been doing some wheeling and dealing as well, as he's already lined up his next effort behind the camera.
