With Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackon's "The Adventures Of Tintin" currently blowing up the box office overseas, sequel talk has already started, even though followup plans were always in the works. As Spielberg revealed last week, Sony and Paramount have given the directing duo enough funds to at least develop a script and do all the visual storyboards to get the next film ready to go as soon as they get a greenlight. Jackson has already said he intends to direct after he wraps up with "The Hobbit." But the question remains, just what the actual story will be.

Crowdsourcing may just be the future of indie filmmaking. Andrew Bujalski raised over $50,000 for his next opus, “Computer Chess,” and now writer/director Hal Hartley has hit Kickstarter asking for your help in completing his new feature, “Meanwhile.” In Hartley’s own words: “The film is shot and edited. We are raising money to complete the audio mix and to prepare the various materials needed for commercial exploitation, which includes the design, authoring, and manufacturing of a limited edition DVD and CD of the original music.”

“Ghandi” and “Schindler’s List” thespian Ben Kingsley is no stranger to having his name attached to more than a few projects at a time and with his supporting role in this month’s release of Martin Scorsese’s fairytale “Hugo,” and a plum role in Sacha Baron Cohen's “The Dictator” on the way for next spring, Kingsley is as busy as always. So it should come as no surprise that he's now heading up a pretty impressive cast for the big-screen adaptation of the Henrik Ibsen play “A Doll’s House.”

If Hollywood is to be believed, the internet is pretty much a deathtrap. Whether it's Jeremy Northam destroying Sandra Bullock's life online in "The Net," Tim Robbins' murderous software billionaire in "Antitrust," sentient computers like Skynet or Shia La Boeuf's adversary in "Eagle Eye," there's no overblown, ludicrous web-based plot that hasn't yet been mined. And to be fair, they're pretty much on the money; the internet is stuffed with psychos, and when we're not cyberstalking our commenters, we're arranging Satanic rituals on LinkedIn.

It’s easy to imagine the filmmakers of faith-based pictures like “Courageous” and “Left Behind” dismissing mainstream critics’ self-perpetuating jeer machine as “secular propaganda,” but anyone who’s read a David Mamet book or watched David O. Russell lose his mind can tell you that becoming a successful artist involves selfishly pursuing one’s goals for years on end, destroying lives and dreams in the process. These faith-based guys are just too nice to do this well.

Honestly, we figured “The Grudge” director Takashi Shimzu would have a hard time finding quality work after the 2006 sequel “The Grudge 2,” a film with all the trappings of a straight-to-DVD effort, which didn’t exactly capture the (minor) effectiveness or (major) box office heat of the first film. Though stranger things have happened in Hollywood, and it looks as if Shimizu will return to the major studio-supported horror with a genre-friendly cast.

Actress Says Motherhood Helped Inform A Role That Helped Her Grow "As A Person And As An Actor"Exclusive: When screenwriter Sam Levinson got behind the camera to shoot his debut feature film “Another Happy Day,” he certainly didn’t arrive unprepared for production on the low budget indie. He lassoed an amazing cast, starting with old pros like George Kennedy and Ellen Burstyn, and actors like Demi Moore, Thomas Haden Church, Sibohan Fallon, Jeffrey DeMunn, and the rising Ezra Miller. Most importantly, however, is the starring role for the project’s producer, Ellen Barkin.

Review: 'Killing Bono' Is A Charmingly Low-Rent Rock 'n' roll Comedy

"Killing Bono," with its suggestive title and darkish, "Taxi Driver"-esque opening sequence, begins with a man (Ben Barnes), complete with twisty goatee and greasy hair tumbling down his forehead, grumbling to himself about how he was robbed of fame. Instead of himself, he explains, to no one in particular, some schoolmates have risen to become international pop sensations. This, as the grumbling suggests, does not sit well with him. He sees a swarm of people and grinds his car to a halt. When he opens the door, he points a gun at a man (Martin McCann) being swarmed – he's wearing bug-eyed sunglasses and has a sharp bob of dark hair. It's the titular rock star. And as the screen goes black, we hear a gunshot…or maybe it's just a camera snapping…

'Animal Kingdom' Star James Frecheville & Xavier Samuel From 'Twilight: Eclipse' Also On Board After a long career as an actress and director, French helmer Anne Fontaine had something of an international breakout with her last film, "Coco Before Chanel." The film, a biopic of the legendary fashion designer starring Audrey Tautou, proved to be critically acclaimed, garnering six Cesar nominations, four BAFTA nods and a place on the shortlist for Best Costume Design at the Oscars, and is one of the most successful French pictures of recent years, taking an impressive $43 million worldwide. As such, Fontaine is a hot property, and news has emerged that she's set to make her English-language debut with a pretty impressive cast.
