Relativity Media Will Distribute in U.S.Well, that's one film we can take out of awards contention for 2011. One of Steven Soderbergh's upcoming films "Haywire" won't be released till January 20, 2012. As we've been saying all along, Relativity Media has retained the domestic rights, with Lionsgate holding on to the foreign rights. Lionsgate was all set to release in the U.S. as well, until restructuring gave partner Relativity its own domestic arm for distribution. The initial date was April, 2011, which Soderbergh confirmed himself, but it was never officially announced; the restructuring deal points took much longer than anyone expected. Then August, 2011 became the next date everyone was zeroing on, but they too lost that window of opportunity when the deal pushed back the chance to release trailers and posters.

With "Bridesmaids" a bonafide runaway success -- $126 million and counting -- it didn't take long for Universal to re-up with director Paul Feig and producer Judd Apatow signing the pair a new film that has so far been described simply as "an unconventional love story." But it looks like it's a project that Feig has been hinting out throughout the spring.

While "Mr. Popper's Penguins" will arrive in theaters this weekend with Jim Carrey doing his familiar rubber face schtick, you might remember that at one point "Greenberg" duo Noah Baumbach and Ben Stiller were going to reteam on the film. Unfortunately, they both wound up dropping out but their work survived and when current director Mark Waters was first circling the project he was sent the script they put together. It was pretty out there, and he didn't get it at all.

Sean Penn & Clive Owen Were Also In ContentionOne thing has been clear, Zack Snyder and Christopher Nolan have been sniffing around a big talent to join the upcoming "Man of Steel" in an important role. Earlier this spring, Daniel Day-Lewis was rumored as being sought for an unspecified part and while that turned out -- as expected -- not to happen, another major star has landed.

We have to admit, when we first heard about "The Comedian" with Robert De Niro attached and the project being spun as a possible reteam with Martin Scorsese, we didn't give it much thought. With the project sounding similar in tone to "The King of Comedy" and just the overall scarcity of info, it seemed more rumor than fact, but the project seems to be very real with a few more bits of info coming today.

Ben Affleck Signs On To Direct Remake Of 'Tell No One'

With David Fincher getting ready to unveil his take on the acclaimed "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" just two years after the popular (but not so hot) Swedish version, it seems Hollywood has found a new niche to exploit: English-language versions of popular foreign films (okay, so maybe it's not that new). Back in 2008, Guillaume Canet's French thriller "Tell No One" was blowing away American critics and audiences as well as becoming one of the biggest foreign hits that year at the box office. Talks of a remake weren't far behind, and last year Andrew Dominik ("Chopper," "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford") was reported to be writing it. Well, it seems that didn't come to pass but the remake is still very much on the way.

Watch: Cruddy Bootleg Of 'A Dangerous Method' Trailer Makes Us Yearn For The Real Thing

Has Sony Pictures Classics Picked Up The Film?No, this isn't like the "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" red band trailer which was (fake?) leaked to the interwebs and got a gajillion hits. Nope, this is a legitimately shitty capture of the trailer for David Cronenberg's "A Dangerous Method," seemingly captured on an iPhone which immediately cuts off the sides of the frame with some pretty bad sound. Even in such rough shape, it gives a pretty good idea of the tone of the film and honestly, has us eager for a proper version in HD.

Film Will Premiere On The Fall Festival CircuitWhile it may not have as much heat right now as a number of other films gearing up for awards contention later this year, Terence Davies' "The Deep Blue Sea" is certainly one to be keeping an eye on. The legendary director who works about as often as Terrence Malick, delivered his last film, the documentary/memoir/tone poem “Of Time and the City” four years ago. Eight years before that was “The House of Mirth.” But with Rachel Weisz and Tom Hiddleston leading the way, his latest is certainly one that will be drawing a lot of attention.
