With Seann William Scott, Jason Biggs and Eugene Levy all signed and Thomas Ian Nicholas, Tara Reid, Chris Klein, Mena Suvari and Jennifer Coolidge all expected to return in the we-didn't-ask-for-this sequel "American Reunion," the lone holdout of sorts was Alyson Hannigan. Her name was curiously missing from early reports on the film but it looks like the "How I Met Your Mother" actress hasn't become too big-headed of a sitcom star to turn down this latest entry in the franchise (that, and it's likely Universal backed up a bigger truck full of money into her driveway).

We'll hand it to producer Marc Fiore. For his second movie "Gotti: Three Generations" -- following National Lampoon's "One, Two, Many" -- he's actually lining up some pretty interesting talent all around. With Nick Cassavetes signed on to direct and John Travolta in the lead role, one more actor has come aboard with a tabloid-ready name waiting in the wings.

We're all for advancing film technology and bettering how movies are produced and displayed, but for this writer, there is nothing more sleep inducing than the chatter surrounding the newly vaunted 48 frames-per-second holy grail of motion picture realism and clarity. With James Cameron and Douglas Trumbull announcing their next films are gonna up the frame rate from the musty dusty old and useless 24 frames-per-second to the new fangled faster format, Peter Jackson has now hit the web to confirm that he too is going with the zippier shooting method and he hit Facebook (via Collider) to talk all about it.

Found-Footage Superhero Flick 'Chronicle' Lands February 3rdThe time at which big tentpole movies were limited to a few months a year -- the May-July summer season, and the period between Thanksgiving and Christmas -- is long gone. "Alice in Wonderland" made a billion dollars from a March release last year, and 2011 so far has already seen "The Green Hornet," a film that once upon a time would have been seen as summer fare, open in the reputed wilderness of January, something that would have been unheard of only a few years ago. Now, 20th Century Fox have slated a couple of their hopefuls for 2012 and, while both are films that could well have been held for the summer, they're going to hit theaters in February of next year.
