With the excellent "The Kids Are All Right" sweeping its way through awards season last year earning four Oscar nominations, writer and director Lisa Cholodenko looks to be taking a page from from fellow indie cohorts Wes Anderson, Noah Baumbach and Charlie Kaufman by turning her talents to a children's tale for her next film (just a reminder, the first worked on "Fantastic Mr. Fox" while the latter did some tinkering on "Kung Fu Panda 2").

Her face and name might not ring any bells but we've all pretty much seen her on screen and know who her parents are. Remember the girl who wakes up with Justin Timberlake's Sean Parker in his introduction in "The Social Network"? Well, she happens to be the daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith, and she's apparently going places around Hollywood with the model-turned-actress now scoring roles in three upcoming film projects.

50 Cent continues to churn through the cash in the 10-picture, $200 million deal between his Cheetah Vision banner and Hedge Fund Film Partners. He's already got the unintentionally hilarious football drama "Things Fall Apart" and the unintentionally hilarious heist movie "Set Up" in the can (sensing a theme here?). Anyhow, the rapper/actor seems to have found a kindred spirit in Bruce Willis who will apparently do anything for money and will star, once again, with 50 Cent in another sure to be terrible movie.

Look at those two young dudes. Bet they didn't realize at the time that they would both travel through the industry together rising to the top of their respective fields, with Tim Burton one of a handful of name brand directors working today and Danny Elfman as one of the most distinctive composers on the block. Through all the shifts and tides of Hollywood, Burton and Elfman stuck together working together on every one of the director's films except for "Ed Wood" and "Sweeney Todd" and they're not about to change up that dynamic anytime soon.
