Try as they might, Rupert Sanders and Universal just can't seem to lock down a lead for "Snow White and the Huntsman." Top shelf guys like Viggo Mortensen and Hugh Jackman have passed, while on-the-rise folks like Joel Edgerton have been mentioned to join Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron in the film. They seem to be vacillating between a name brand and a fresher face, and it looks like they hope to get the best out of both worlds with their latest choice.

Though you may not be familiar with the name Alberto Iglesias, you've certainly heard his work. The composer is perhaps best known for the music he's penned for frequent collaborator Pedro Almodovar or perhaps from his Oscar-nominated scores for "The Constant Gardener" and "The Kite Runner." Quite simply, he's one of the best composers working today and he's getting ready to add another acclaimed filmmaker to his resumé.

Spanish helmer Juan Carlos Fresnadillo got himself onto the Hollywood radar fairly quickly with the one-two punch of "Intacto" followed by the solid "28 Weeks Later." He's already tipped for "The Crow" reboot/remake -- though that seems to be tied up in legal woes for the moment -- but he's got another film on the way that will try to spook you silly.

Writer and director Tristan Patterson is flying pretty high right now. His first feature-length film "Dragonslayer" just won the Jury Prize for Best Documentary at South by Southwest in Austin, Texas, and he's in the middle of negotiations for distribution. The film follows Josh "Skreech" Sandoval, a pool skateboarder from California, in his daily wanderings. Patterson took some time while promoting his film at the Independent Film Festival of Boston to sit down with us to talk about the odd form of his documentary, what type of viewer he's interested in and what it was like to win a major award after only one film.

Friday night at the San Francisco International Film Festival, actor Terence Stamp (“The Adjustment Bureau,” “Valkyrie”) was presented with the Peter J. Owens award for excellence in acting. To celebrate the award, Stamp appeared on stage with film critic Elvis Mitchell to tell stories of a decades-long career that saw him rise to the level of leading man, then experience a period as a bit part player, and then journey back into the spotlight. Following the conversation was a screening of the rarely shown “Toby Dammit,” the Stamp-starring and Federico Fellini-directed segment of the 1968 Edgar Allen Poe adaptation collection called “Spirits of the Dead.”
