Emile Hirsch has been keeping a low profile of late. He hasn't been seen on screen since 2009's "Taking Woodstock," but he'll be making his way back to screens later this year with the alien invasion flick "The Darkest Hour." He's also got the William Friedkin dark comedy "Killer Joe" likely to do festival rounds at the very least sometime this year. So what is he doing until then? Directing Daft Punk videos, it seems.

Last summer, word from the set of "Scream 4" was ugly. Franchise creator Kevin Williamson, who originally penned the script, departed the film, with Ehren Kruger ("Scream 3," "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen") coming in and wielding his mighty shitty pen all over the script. The rumor was that the changes pissed off the cast of the film, so much so that Lauren Graham actually left the film because her role had been greatly reduced and Hayden Panettiere was frustrated that her character had been "dumbed down significantly." Ever since, there have been rumors of reshoots and rewrites and other signs pointing to a plagued production, but with the film around the corner, Williamson has finally addressed his exit from the film describing as just a routine blowup between friends.

For the young Hailee Steinfeld, the Oscar-nominated star of "True Grit," the world is her oyster. While Jennifer Lawrence has quickly turned Oscar glory into a lead role in a major franchise with "The Hunger Games," Steinfeld hasn't been in quite a rush to decide on what's next. She, too, was briefly mentioned as a possible contender for a role in “The Hunger Games,” got attached to the tween “Memento”-like film “Forgotten” and was part of a Sleeping Beauty movie pitch that went around Hollywood, but no decisions had been made. But now, the young thesp looks booked in one of the oldest tales of them all.
