There was a lot of chatter earlier this year about the brewing "Tim & Eric's Billion Dollar Movie." From the mad minds of Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, their big screen outing following the end of the cult hit "Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!" attracted a host of comedian and actor buds for roles/cameo appearances including Zach Galifianakis, Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly (sadly, not playing Steve Brule), Robert Loggia, Jeff Goldblum, Will Forte and William Atherton. And aside from Magnolia Pictures snapping up the rights, we haven't heard much since. Well, damn, the movie is done and will be ready for your eyeballs in all of two months.

For every rising actor or big name star, there is always a film in their past they would like to forget about. Something they did because it was work, they needed to pay rent and they at least wanted to keep working. It's called paying your dues, and while Jesse Eisenberg isn't trying to hide that he's had his own share of pre-fame oddities, he'd rather not be the face of the low rent horror movie "Camp Hell," and he's sending his lawyers after the filmmakers.

With “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol,” “The Bourne Legacy,” “Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters” and “The Avengers” scheduled for release in the next year, A-list stardom seems inevitable for Jeremy Renner. But the actor, who made his name in independent and ensemble projects like “The Hurt Locker” and “The Town,” insists that he is interested in a wide variety of opportunities, not just the ones with the biggest box office potential. Speaking to The Playlist during press rounds for 'Mission: Impossible,' Renner explained he’s eager to start work on a project co-written and directed by James Gray, first announced over the summer.

Muscles, explosions, guns, bombs, steroids and...tennis? It looks like "The Expendables 2" is going to be even more ridiculous than we could have imagined.

While the fall festival and awards season is generally a time for movie lovers and critics to put on their serious faces and watch a bunch of arty films and dour dramas, sometimes you just want the thrill of a well-honed action movie to take the edge off. And at TIFF in September, audiences got that in spades with "The Raid." The Midnight Madness entry was nothing short of sensation, and alongside the other starrier, high brow movies at the fest, it was definitely one of the most talked about films in Toronto. Sony quickly snapped up the rights, parceling the remake duties to Screen Gems, and in a move that is definitely curious, Deadline reports the auteur-driven Sony Pictures Classics will bring the original flick to theaters.

It seems Bryan Singer is on a bit of a nostalgia kick right now. Earlier this fall, he earned buzz when he revealed he would be bringing the '70s sci-fi series "Battlestar Galactica" to the big screen, and he was recently rumored to be eyeing "The Six Billion Dollar Man" (an update on "The Six Million Dollar Man"). But before he gets to either of those, an old cable favorite is getting refreshed for our times.

Harrison Ford Among Older Actors Sought For 'Ender's Game'; Asa Butterfield Locked In

So is Harrison Ford a gift or a curse these days? The actor hasn't had a hit film -- that didn't involve carrying a whip once again -- in over a decade. You'd have to go all the way back to 2000's "What Lies Beneath." Since then it's been a string of underperforming and just plain bad films in almost every genre imaginable, from heartwarming drama ("Extraordinary Measures"), genre thrillers ("Firewall"), comedy ("Morning Glory") and blockbuster tentpoles ("Cowboys & Aliens"). But that said, he is Indiana Jones and Han Solo, so that will always carry a certain amount of weight.

First announced a couple of months ago, many hoped Universal's attempt to reboot their "Scarface" franchise would fall to the wayside, but it seems they are quite serious about not only making it happen, but getting it ready sooner than we thought. Following in the footsteps of Oliver Stone, Ben Hecht and Howard Hawks is...David Ayer. Deadline reports he's been tasked with writing the screenplay for the upcoming film.
