Oh, And It's Not Based On Boccaccio’s NovellasApparently, Woody Allen's forthcoming, Italy set "Bop Decameron" was too confusing for some people, so the jazz loving, Euro hopping director has gone ahead and changed it to something worse, and still baffling. His next movie will now be called: "Nero Fiddled."

The movie-to-TV train continues in full force this year and following in the footsteps of "The Transporter,” “The Lincoln Lawyer,” “Anger Management” and most recently, "Source Code" another film -- albeit one quite different from this list -- is now getting the small screen treatment.

With Jamie Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio and Christoph Waltz in the lead roles of "Django Unchained," Quentin Tarantino can pretty much cast whoever the fuck he wants in the rest of the movie, so no surprise he's been favoring smaller/forgotten/veteran/cult names for the rest of the parts. And now he's added another.

After years behind bars, and in the wake of support from three eye-opening documentaries by directors Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky, and celebrity support and awareness from folks like Eddie Vedder, Johnny Depp and Henry Rollins, the West Memphis Three -- Damien Echols, Jessie Misskelley, Jr. and Jason Baldwin were finally freed this summer. Though technically still convicted of murder thanks to the Alford plea deal, the trio were helped in no small part by the quiet efforts of Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh who had for years been funding further investigations to help clear their names. And while the future is still a mystery for the WM3 at least one of them may get a taste of Hollywood.

It's hard to believe, but after a decade of conquering our multiplexes and turning everybody including your Mom into an expert on the series, the "Harry Potter" franchise is over (until they figure out a way to reboot it). And thus, the young cast, who are now all grown up, will need to venture for the first time into the industry without the comfort of a franchise to fall back on. For Emma Watson, the actress has boldly taken steps into her post-'Potter' career, cutting her hair short, taking a supporting role in "My Week With Marilyn" and taking her first non-tentpole lead in "The Perks Of Being A Wallflower."

Summit Relativity Media has been very aggressive with "Hunter Killer," earmarking the picture for a December 2012 release date for months as Phillip Noyce decided whether he was the right man for the director's chair. Though he left the project in August, Relativity continued to show faith in the adaptation of George Wallace's best-seller "Firing Point," bringing on Antoine Fuqua to direct. And with a winter start date being eyed, it looks like they have their leading men.

While "Attack The Block" didn't quite light up the box office this summer, the alien invasion flick firmly established itself as a new cult classic of the genre, and the film's star, John Boyega, emerged as a new talent to keep an eye on. Certainly, Spike Lee sat up and took notice, casting him in the lead of the HBO series he's producing. But before that, Boyega will have a small role in the upcoming British drama "Junkhearts" alongside Eddie Marsan, Tom Sturridge and Romola Garai, and it looks pretty promising.

If there was a way we could Benjamin Button ourselves back to being eight years old before watching the forthcoming "The Muppets," we would, but as it stands, it looks like our adult selves are still gonna have a helluva time with the movie when it hits next month.

If yesterday, the "Act Of Valor" trailer, though jingoistic, at least displayed that the Navy SEALs do some actual work in protecting their country, it appears their brethren over at the C.I.A. have a lot more time on their hands.

Besides being one of the best movies of the year, "Drive" has also seemingly become a magnet for crazy people. There is the Detroit woman you heard about over the weekend who sued FilmDistrict because "Drive" wasn't "Fast Five" and she (idiotically) claimed it promoted violence against Jewish people. Well, it seems Ryan Gosling crushing a man's face to bits has "inspired" another deranged individual.
