The long wait for this inevitable piece of news is over. After playing coy forever, and now riding high off the success of "Super 8," Deadline reveals that J.J. Abrams has finally committed to directing the long awaited "Star Trek 2." But as expected, his delay and quest for the right story and script have caused plans at Paramount to move around a bit.

Earlier this year there was all kinds of hoopla surrounding the gestating John Gotti biopic, mostly because independent producers Fiore Films somehow managed to score John Travolta, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci for the film with none other than Barry Levinson directing (who stepped in for Nick Cassavetes who bailed on the project to focus on his now legally troubled flick "Yellow"). Well, it's been nearly two months since we last heard anything, but believe it or not, the movie is indeed moving forward.

Precariously mixing elements of broad comedy, bittersweet heartache, charming romance and soulful, surprisingly mature dramatic moments, "Crazy, Stupid, Love" is an endearing and winning summer comedic drama. It succeeds in spite of some messy plotting, dicey adulteration of tones, and too convenient and ridiculous sequences that threaten to unravel a well-made, mostly well-written picture about love and marital discord.

Watch: Kevin Smith's 'Red State' Gets A Foul Mouthed, Shoot 'Em Up Trailer

We gotta admit, Kevin Smith stuck to his guns on this one. Throughout the "Red State" campaign, the director swore to stick to grassroots marketing and forgo the kind of big budget spend that traditionally accompanies a film's release. And while there have been a plethora of posters and other material for the project thus far, they've all been disseminated online. As for the film, after its raucous premiere at Sundance, Smith toured it around the country with pricey roadshow screenings that he hosted personally, with Q&A sessions after each. All that being said, he's arguably sold the movie to the exact people who knew about it already -- his fans. With the release now around the corner, it's time to engage everybody else. A full length, potty mouthed trailer has arrived.

There is no conventional wisdom that states that you get the biopic you deserve. Indeed, terrible movies have been made from compelling public figures, while other, less respectable folks have been unfortunately immortalized by the craft behind their cinematic stories. Ideally, the film isn’t a validation or condemnation of the person, but unfortunately, history favors public opinion over nuance. Hell, there are some people who think "Forrest Gump" was a real person.
