Formerly titled "I'm.mortal" then "Now" before settling on "In Time," director Andrew Niccol has stepped behind the camera again for the time in six years, returning to the sci-fi genre that served him so well the first time out with "Gattaca." And he's got a helluva story to tell.

With multi-platform "The Dark Tower" dead for now, and also freeing up years of Ron Howard's life he would have spent toiling on the picture(s), he hasn't wasted any time in lining up a batch of new projects. His Formula 1 drama "Rush" with Chris Hemsworth and Daniel Bruhl will shift into gear in late 2011/early 2012 and he's currently got a "Spy Vs. Spy" movie and the mysterious Robert Ludlum-meets-Tolkien pic "Amnesty" sitting on his backburner for now, and it looks as though they will also be competing for space alongside a new endeavor.

In this week's "Another Earth," rising star Brit Marling plays Rhoda, a troubled young woman who is released from prison after serving a sentence for a fatal drunk driving incident. She eventually comes into the life of the grieving father John (William Mapother) whose child she killed all while the rest of the world deals with a mirror version of Earth appearing in the sky, hidden behind the Sun. Marling, who co-wrote the film with director Mike Cahill, has become a major personality in the indie film world with both "Another Earth" and "Sound Of My Voice" (also co-written by, and starring Marling) surprising both the arthouse and genre fans as they've done the festival rounds. "Another Earth" walked away from Sundance this year with a distribution deal with Fox Searchlight and two prizes for director Mike Cahill.

Actress Says She Feels Ripley's Story Is "Unfinished"Twenty five years ago yesterday, James Cameron's "Aliens" hit screens and turned Ridley Scott's suspenseful sci-fi horror, "Alien," into more of an action sci-fi classic. They're polar opposite films, really, at least in tone and mood, but Cameron's film is arguably on-par and one of the best genre sequels of all time (we really like this take of calling it an "ode to motherhood" which is true given all the connections, though we're not sure Cameron himself saw it quite like that, but maybe we're not giving him enough credit).

Barry Pepper, James Badge Dale & Helena Bonham Carter Also Getting Ready To Saddle UpIf there is one thing that country musician and actor Dwight Yoakam does well, its act like an asshole and sleazebag. Billy Bob Thornton knew this when he cast him as the memorably repulsive Doyle Hargraves in "Sling Blade" and David Fincher realized his presence alone was worth more than pages of dialogue when he tasked Yoakam to play the unpredictable and violent Raoul. He can also be wryly funny as he's displayed in "Crank" and "Wedding Crashers" but he's gearing up for this biggest movie yet.

"...I’ve been running for a team of people for a long time and I don’t take any of it back...I’ve learned a great deal about a certain type of filmmaking. But I have ambitions toward another type of filmmaking that I haven’t been allowed to engage in yet,” Shia LaBeouf recently said in the press run up to "Tranformers: Dark Of The Moon" and it looks like he's firmly leaving tentpole movies behind for now. Earlier this spring, he was one of the boys hanging in John Hillcoat's prohibition-era drama "The Wettest County" and now LaBeouf is ready to star and be directed by one of Hollywood's great legends.

Yep, this week is pretty much going to be nothing but tentpole movie news and comic book updates as Comic-Con gets into full swing. And meanwhile, at your local multiplex it seems to be nothing but wizards, robots, pirates and foul mouthed comedies, which makes next week's arrival of the layered, PG-13 rom-com "Crazy Stupid Love" all the more interesting.

Neeeeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrd! Ok, we'll admit, we don't normally do this type of thing, but there's been so much bitching about the apparent lack of goods delivered in "The Dark Knight Rises" teaser trailer (at least on our blog) that this writer figured he'd deliver his take on the trailer. And because our two dads said it was ok.

Tom Arnold Also Circling A Role As Crispin Glover's BrotherHow far and strangely we've fallen. For "Freaky Deaky," the adaptation of the Elmore Leonard novel that at one time had folks like William H. Macy and Sienna Miller in the leads before going through a few casting shifts and settling on the lesser, but still somewhat respectable quartet of Matt Dillon, Brendan Fraser, Craig Robinson and Katie Cassidy. The cast was recycled again, settling on a straight-to-DVD strong bunch of Billy Burke, Christian Slater, Michael Jai White, newcomer Breanne Racano and Roger Bart. That pretty much killed whatever interest we had in the project -- until now.
