Getting your script picked up in Hollywood can be both a blessing and a curse. You can see your vision realized as it should be on the big screen or you can see it ripped apart, rewritten, retooled, dumped, re-acquired and re-imagined until it barely resembles the thing you first wrote. For Black List approved Jonathan Herman, he's seeing his work get a makeover.

No, this isn't Matthew Wilder‘s “Inferno” that was famously going to have Lindsay Lohan in the lead role, but now is toplined by Malin Akerman and Matt Dillon. Instead, this is the competing project by “Howl” and “The Celluloid Closet” directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman that at one point was courting Kate Hudson and James Franco (who've both moved on), and had Olivia Wilde taking a look during the summer. It has now cast up, and the talent on board is pretty strong.

While his Lisbeth Salander, played by Noomi Rapace, used her turn in the Swedish Millenium trilogy films to break into Hollywood with roles in "Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows" and "Prometheus," original "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" director Niels Arden Oplev hasn't fared quite as well. While he's been attached to quite a few projects -- "Game Theory," "The Keep" and "The Last Photograph" (though Zack Snyder, who developed the movie has now decided to direct it himself) -- none have really taken off, but it looks like his old leading lady is coming back with a much bigger star in tow get his next project moving.

The domestic trailer for "Shame" has arrived, and if you're a keen follower of this film, you'll realize this trailer is pretty much identical to the the U.K. version you've already seen. But the point is spreading the word for a controversial sexual drama that's been stamped with the dreaded NC-17 tag (though some are already posting this could work in the film's favor and calling it a "badge of honor").

Says Tracy Morgan Wants It TooWith the recent buzz about the gestating Tupac and N.W.A. biopics, we kind of forgot this was happening at all, but waaaaay back in 2009 Wu-Tang Clan member, actor, director, chess master and producer RZA first hinted that a biopic about the eccentric and amazing Ol' Dirty Bastard was being bandied about. "We have talked about [a biopic film]. His estate is pretty confused, like any estate is in our country. The estate is kind of confused on what to do, and all the rights and all that shit, but it’s definitely been talked about," he said. And it looks like that talk has developed into something substantial.

With cameras now rolling, looks like there was one more part to cast in Arnold Schwarzenegger's "The Last Stand." Genesis Rodriguez may not be a familiar name just yet, but 2012 should change that. She raised eyebrows earlier in the year, appearing frequently undressed in the trailer for "Man On A Ledge," and with roles in the Will Ferrell comedy "Casa de mi Padre" and "What To Expect When You're Expecting." Her profile is set to rocket to those who haven't kept up with her travails on the Spanish language dramas "Doña Bárbara" and "Prisionera."
