Matt Dillon No Longer AttachedBeing cast as the lead in Sofia Coppola's "Somewhere" didn't immediately seem to give Stephen Dorff the big career boost that he might have hoped, mainly due to the film being a hollow, tedious experience. But the actor, who for some time had languished in DTV hell, is certainly on the up, with roles in Tarsem's "Immortals" and the Emile Hirsch indie "The Motel Life" on the way, and it seems to have legitimized the actor as a leading man in the independent world again.

Films rushing to meet a release date has almost become a common practice in Hollywood. "X-Men: First Class" will open next week ten months after it started shooting, while "Hunger Games" and ,Tarsem's recently moved Snow White film will operate under the same time constraints to meet their March release dates next year. But it's always a risk to hurry a production, particularly when there are a lot of dollars at stake and with just over a year before "Star Trek 2" is scheduled to land next June, and with no director attached, Paramount may end up pushing back the movie rather than try and crank it out.

While Matt Reeves hasn't quite decided how he's going to followup the excellent "Let Me In," he's certainly giving himself lots of options. Last month the director signed on to direct two films -- the sci-fi "8 O’Clock In The Morning" and the vampire pic "Passage" -- and he's staying with the supernatural for yet another film he's putting his name to.

Like two drunken frat boys engaged in a pissing match for bragging rights, Universal and Relativity have been fighting it out over their competing Snow White movies both set to hit next year. In one corner, we have “Snow White and the Huntsman" with Chris Hemsworth as the huntsman, Charlize Theron set to play the evil queen, Kristen Stewart as Snow White, and “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” star Sam Clafin as the prince. In the other corner, we have Tarsem's untitled Snow White movie with Julia Roberts, Armie Hammer, Lily Collins, Nathan Lane and Robert Emms. Originally, Tarsem's film was set to be released on June 29, 2012, with Universal's picture coming arriving in December. But last week, Universal announced they were moving their film all the way up to June 1st and switching out their film with Judd Apatow's forthcoming "Knocked Up" spin off, which they bumped to the end of the year. But it looks like Relativity now has the last laugh.

"How I Met Your Mother" star Josh Radnor made his feature directing debut last year with "Happythankyoumoreplease." It wasn't very good. But for his sophomore feature, Radnor has already stepped up us his game. Earlier this year, and fresh out of the Sundance Film Festival, where she earned incredible buzz for her performance in "Martha Marcy May Marlene," Radnor landed Elizabeth Olsen as the star for "Liberal Arts," and now he's lined up another accomplished thesp who made an appearance in his first film.

Also Says Only One New Character Will Be IntroducedWith early reactions positioning Matthew Vaughn's anticipated and epic (yes, it runs just under 2 hours and 15 minutes) "X-Men: First Class" as a winner, sequel talk is already underway. While earlier reports have speculated whether or not the film will time jump to the '70s or '80s, it looks like Vaughn isn't ready to leave the '60s setting of his origin story film just yet and he's got a pretty bonkers idea on where to kick-off a followup to 'First Class.'

Ben Stiller Says 'Zoolander 2' Has A Good Script, But Still In The Hands Of Paramount

While some people think we're kind of no-fun movie lovers who prefer our films foreign and depressing, the truth is we could probably out quote anyone when it comes to either "Anchorman" or "Zoolander" any day of the week. But any hopes of seeing Ron Burgundy or Derek Zoolander again on the big screen lie at the table of the execs at Paramount. As we already know, the proposed musical sequel to "Anchorman" was rejected by the studio last summer as they felt the price tag for the film would have been too high. With that film now on the sidelines until somebody comes to their senses, attention has focused in on the gestating "Zoolander 2."
