While we're still slightly miffed that Nicole Holofcener's excellent "Please Give" was pretty much ignored during awards season last year, the good news is we won't have to wait too long for another project from her mighty pen.

Studio Eyes James McAvoy Or Shia LaBeouf But May Want Aussie Actor For 'Snow White & The Huntsman'Aussie actor Joel Edgerton is on the cusp of making a major mark in Hollywood. The 36-year-old actor has never been lacking for work. Acclaimed turns in "The Square" and "Animal Kingdom" put him firmly on the Hollywood radar and 2011 is already shaping up to be a helluva year as he's already set for the Tom Hardy MMA flick "Warrior" and the big budget "The Thing" prequel. He's also currently filming the indie flick "The Odd Life of Timothy Green." All that's left for the actor to solidify his place among the top leading men is a franchise, and it looks like he's got a couple to choose from.

Sean Penn Was Set To Star In Zach Braff's 'Open Hearts' Before It Fell Apart At The Last Minute

You might not remember this, but way, way back in the day -- and not too long after "Garden State" hit it big -- Zach Braff had an ambitious plan to do a remake of Susanne Bier's grim drama "Open Hearts." The story follows an engaged couple who deal with the aftermath of a car crash that leaves the man paralyzed from the waist down, and to make matters more complicated, the woman falls in love with the husband of the person who caused the accident. Fun times! Braff said he was drawn to the material because it managed to be about "lust, love, loneliness and so many things and dealt with them in a way an American movie typically wouldn't." And while that film obviously never happened, we'll always be left wondering what could have been because the actor/director reveals he had some top-shelf talent lined up for it.

This Friday sees the release of "Legend Of The Fist: The Return Of Chen Zhen." For the uninitiated, Chen Zhen is kind of a big deal in Hong Kong, so the subtitle is meant to refer to the character as played by Donnie Yen (here reprising his role) in a hit television series. The series borrows both from historical myth and a previous Bruce Lee film, so there's the slight assumption that you don't exactly need elaboration regarding Zhen's identity. Essentially, imagine if you had never heard of Indiana Jones but were now watching, "Young Indiana Jones: The Movie." We forgive your confusion.
