Fox has played it smart since Darren Aronofsky left "The Wolverine." Instead of a rush of shortlist candidates hitting the web, and studio and its star, Hugh Jackman, have kept cool, insisting they want the right person for the job. But it appears we've just seen the tip of the iceberg of potential candidates.

It doesn't get much more star studded than this. The Steve Carell dramedy, "Crazy, Stupid, Love." has lined up a killer ensemble cast including Ryan Gosling, Julianne Moore, Emma Stone, Kevin Bacon, Marisa Tomei, singer Josh Groban and Analeigh Tipton, and in the first trailer for the film, it looks like everyone is in top form.

It was bound to happen, and we're surprised it didn't happen sooner. But with "The Wolverine" now on hold thanks to the double whammy of Darren Aronofsky bailing on the film and the ongoing aftereffects of the devastating earthquake in Japan where the film was set to shoot, Universal are hoping they can take advantage of Hugh Jackman's downtime and get him to star in their developing Snow White movie.

Quirk alert! This movie has it all! Math, burgeoning love, numbers and patterns everywhere like "A Beautiful Mind" and even a precocious little kid. We don't know if we can take any more.

Yes, A Remake Of Alfred Hitchcock's 'To Catch A Thief' Is Happening And It Will Be More "Gadgety"

Remakes of Alfred Hitchcock films are nothing new, really. "Strangers on a Train" and "Suspicion" have been named in the past little while as getting makeovers, while the filmmakers behind "Disturbia" were sued for ripping off "Rear Window" by the estate of the author who wrote the original short story on which it's based (the lawsuit failed). Even more recently, Anthony Hopkins was said to be in talks to play the director himself in “Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho” which is about exactly what the title implies (which of course reminds us of Gus Van Sant's shot-for-shot redo of "Psycho"). A fascinating figure, with an undeniably great body of work, it's not shocking that Hollywood continues to mine the filmmaker for ideas.

Producer Mark Canton Delivers Swipe At James Cameron For 3D In 'Sanctum'All old school (or even semi-old school in this case) Hollywood producers are awesome (see Jerry Weintraub for a recent example). Mostly because they've been around the block often enough that they're simply too old to mince words or bother with a diplomacy filter.

Young Filmmaker Talks About Making His First Feature, And Being Comfortable With His Influences And Own SkinWhile "Ceremony" is likely to be the introduction for most to the work of Max Winkler, many have been tipped off to his talent after seeing him work with Michael Cera and Clark Duke in the appropriate titled (and very funny) webseries, "Clark & Michael," which you can check out here. But that's just the tip of the iceberg. Winkler has been making his name on a number of brewing projects including "The Adventurer's Handbook" which he co-wrote with pal Jonah Hill and frequent collaborator Matt Spicer, not to mention being drafted with the latter to write "Whispers in Bedlam" for Jason Reitman and scoring the selling the pitch for "First Man" that has Johnny Knoxville attached. Suffice it to say the 27-year-old son of Henry Winkler has all the makings of a filmmaker that should be squarely on your radar.

It's been a long, long time since Meg Ryan was the rom-com queen. These days, the field is more or less led by Kate Hudson, Katherine Heigl and Drew Barrymore though none quite have the charm she did back in the day. But it's been a while since we've seen much of Meg Ryan at all with her last major role in the ill-advised 2008 remake "The Women." But she's now ready to make her first foray behind the camera.

'300' Sequel Drops 'Xerxes' Name, Producer Says Film Is On the Way & "Very Close" To Being Made

No one really expected "300" to become as big of a box office hit as it became. The highly-stylized R-rated epic took in over $450 million worldwide, helped establish March as one of the one new tentpole months (and served as the launchpad for Zack Snyder's followup films "Watchmen" and "Sucker Punch") and started the Hollywood gold rush to adapting graphic novels en masse. So naturally, a sequel has long been eyed. Last summer Snyder and Kurt Johnstad started penning the script, and at WonderCon over the weekend, the always chatty "Immortals" producer Mark Canton provided a few updates on where the project was at starting with the title.
