A couple of years ago “The Story of Bonnie and Clyde” was announced and into the role of Bonnie Parker, a beret-wearing outlaw rendered a fashion icon of sorts in the late 1960s by actress Faye Dunaway, stepped one-time child actor Hilary Duff. The casting obviously caused some consternation, and, at the time, it played out as a humorous spat between the former Disney poster girl and Dunaway, herself prone to kooky behavior of late, who squawked to the press, “Couldn’t they at least cast a real actress?”

As filmmaking sibling duos go, Mark and Michael Polish have never been heralded as titans of the independent moviemaking scene, nor have they managed to attain consistent mainstream success like the brothers Coen or Duplass. Early efforts like “Twin Falls Idaho” -- in which the pair starred as conjoined twins to some acclaim -- and “Northfolk” certainly have their fans, but they came unstuck with an offensively mawkish Billy Bob Thornton vehicle no-one saw (“The Astronaut Farmer”) in 2006 and it’s hardly been plain sailing since then, with pictures like “The Smell of Success” dropping off the face of the Earth into instant obscurity or ‘secret’ projects like their “Wizard of Oz” prequel being mysteriously dumped/abandoned when everyone else in Hollywood had a similar idea.

We have to admit, we totally forgot this had even happened, but way back in 2007 David S. Goyer signed on to write and direct a new take on "The Invisible Man" for Universal. Not much has been heard since, with Goyer in the interim delivering "The Unborn" and of course, taking on the Christopher Nolan Batman films and the upcoming "Man Of Steel." But, the project is still very much alive and Hero Complex recently caught up with the writer/director on the set of the currently shooting Superman movie, and revealed that his take is forgoing the more serious path taken by recent Universal horror franchise films like "Van Helsing" and "The Wolf Man."

Back in 2008, Universal signed a six year exclusive deal with Hasbro to bring their various properties to the big screen. “Battleship,” “Candyland,” “Monopoly,” “Clue,” "The Gathering," "Magic" and "Stretch Armstrong" were among the titles that were put into development, but it seems the studio is beginning to cool on the whole idea. After dropping an absurd $200 million on "Battleship," they've quietly stepped away from “Monopoly,” “The Gathering,” “Magic” and just a couple weeks ago "Clue," and now one more project has bitten the dust.

For their first film, "Persepolis," Vincent Paronnaud and Marjane Satrapi could not have asked for a better reception, with both critics and audiences falling for the animated adaptation of the latter's graphic novel, culminating in a Best Animated Feature Oscar nomination for the picture. It's been four years but the duo is back, this time with a live action film, and it looks like if anything, the fantasy elements are at a higher pitch this time around.
