Rooney Mara, Haley Bennet, Clemence Poesy & Mia Wasikowska Vying For Female Lead; Film Will Shoot In Early 2012For much of Terrence Malick's career, his workflow has been defined by single projects taking years at a time to take shape and finish before he moves on to the next one. Now, it seems the guy is making up for lost time. With "The Tree of Life" hitting theaters this spring, the director currently has his untitled film -- aka "The Burial" -- in post-production and is also at some stage of development with his "Voyage of Time" documentary which recently added Emma Thompson as a narrator alongside Brad Pitt. Earlier this year word cropped up that Malick was starting another film, one that would be small in nature that would potentially shoot late summer/early fall. Not much has been heard since, but it looks like that film is now moving full steam ahead with an early 2012 start being eyed.

While we think the world of Jodie Foster, she always seemed to be a weird potential castmate of "R.I.P.D." but with Variety now reporting that Mary-Louise Parker will take the role instead, things make a lot more sense.

Hi kids! Didya miss me? I have to first apologize for slandering "Rise of the Planet of the Apes," that movie was great! More cartoon faces of apes played by Andy Serkis please! Who was your favorite ape? Mine was Maurice the orangutan. Okay, so there's a ton of crazy stuff opening this weekend so let's get right to it! "Conan!" "Fright Night!" "One Day!" "Spy Kids 4" in Smell-o-vision (I'm glad 'Apes' wasn't in smell-o-vision, nah mean?)!

"It's pretty well done; I'm about 99% sure there won't be any more. I'm very happy with the last Burmese episode, and another film might be misinterpreted as an unnecessary and mercenary gesture. I don't want that to happen," Sylvester Stallone told Empire last spring, but that was before the mega success of "The Expendables." With that film proving there was an audience who wanted to see the 65 year old blow stuff up, it seems that Sly has changed his mind about playing John Rambo one more time.

Well, Ghost Rider is back and "Crank" directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor have answered the age old question: what happens when Johnny Blaze has to take a piss when he's on fire?

Yes, Roman Polanski's "Carnage" is indeed a comedy (with some drama) and if you had any doubt, this trailer should more than drive that point home.

So, there has been a lot of talk around the "The Help" by folks in certain quarters about how it's an offensive and possibly racist look at civil rights because it uses a white woman as a pinwheel around which black stories are told. This writer disagrees somewhat and after watching the trailer for "Machine Gun Preacher," this movie comes off far more patronizing and condescending, if not outright ridiculous.

Comedian Says 'House Of Joel' Might Be Dead; Says Josh Brolin Is "Scary Good" In 'MIB3'Among the sea of comedic actors currently working in Hollywood, one of our favorites is Bill Hader, if not for his uncanny talent and savvy mimicry skills, then for his desire to strike out as a multi-hyphenate comic talent. Logging big time minutes in “Superbad,” “Knocked Up,” "Paul" and even “A Night At The Museum: Battle Of The Smithsonian,” Hader’s developed a solid rep as a guy who can bring the funny in some of the biggest blockbusters around.

It’s been quite a journey for Finnish filmmaker Renny Harlin. Once the director of “A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master ” (the highest-grossing entry in the series at the time) he moved on to the back-to-back onslaught of “The Adventures Of Ford Farlaine” and “Die Hard 2: Die Harder” that cemented him as one of Hollywood’s top action directors, a designation he carried all the way to the snakebitten “Cutthroat Island,” one of the biggest bombs in box office history.

Read The 15 Rules Of ‘Dogtooth’ Director Yorgos Lanthimos’ New Film ‘Alps’

Film Tagline: "When The End Is Here, The Alps Are Near"For the most part, press notes for a film are usually a dull affair. A bunch of stapled pages with rehearsed quotes from everyone involved, a synopsis and maybe a few images from the flick. They are a handy tool, but ask anyone who comes back from TIFF or Cannes, almost 90% will end up in the recycling bin. However, every now and then there will be something that will you will want to hang on to. Last year's hardback book for "Uncle Boonme Who Can Recall Past Lives" was a standout, but even something with striking imagery or a memorable presentation will be enough for us to file it away. Which brings us to "Dogtooth" director Yorgos Lanthimos’ new film "Alps." With a premiere in Venice and TIFF just around the corner, attendees will once again be overloaded with marketing material for the films hitting the Lido but they may want to hang on to the pages for "Alps."
