Newcomers Bella Heathcote and Alicia Vikander Also Linked To Role It's been a few months since there was any news on the duelling 'Snow White' projects set up at Universal and Relativity -- the former has newcomer Rupert Sanders attached to direct, the latter visual stylist Tarsem, and while both have had names rumored to be involved, no solid word has come out for some time. But suddenly, the floodgates have opened, with news coming in last night that Relativity want Julia Roberts to play the evil queen in their project, "The Brothers Grimm: Snow White," while, as rumored, Charlize Theron is on the verge of signing on for the equivalent role in Universal's "Snow White and the Huntsman."

For a while there, Eminem was going to be one of those hyphenates that threatened for EGOT status. "8 Mile" was not only a box office success but earned the multi-platinum rapper an Academy Award and critical hosannas. Bizarrely, he followed this turn with only a cameo in "Funny People," a role not even credited on IMDb. To hear the rapper tell it during his press tours promoting the recent album "Recovery," he spent a lot of time lost in a haze of substance abuse and family troubles. Out of this turmoil emerges his next starring vehicle, "Southpaw."

'The Social Network' & 'The Fighter' Right Behind With 6 Noms A PieceThe nominations for the 2011 Golden Globes have been announced by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, and they pretty much betray the same populist and ill-informed thinking that usually seems to mark the People magazine-friendly awards.

So we're going to show our age a little here, but we never actually met Edgar Allen Poe. By all accounts, he was a pretty exciting dude, an accomplished writer and practitioner of cosmology and cryptography. Perhaps Sylvester Stallone, an older gentleman, knew Poe well (trained at the same gyms?), motivating him to spend years trying to adapt his life into a movie starring Robert Downey Jr.

Michael Fassbender The Frontrunner To Play The Huntsman In Universal's Version Of ProjectHollywood loves its dueling projects racing to get to the screen first. They make for a good story, and generally who ever gets there second doesn't get there at all. See Baz Luhrmann's "Alexander The Great" project with Leonardo DiCaprio that was basically shuttered because Oliver Stone's "Alexander" arrived first, and Toby Jones' "Infamous" that limped unnoticed into theaters when "Capote" and Philip Seymour Hoffman's Oscar-winning performance stole all its heat.

For most of us, Jessica Chastain is a name best associated with Terrence Malick's long awaited "The Tree Of Life," but she has earned praise for her turn in the indie flick "Jolene" as well, and is definitely a talent on the rise. But it looks like the actress is getting ready to make a huge impression on the indie film world. She has roles in the upcoming civil rights era drama "The Help" with Emma Stone, as well as a part in Ami Canaan Mann's forthcoming "The Fields." However, the most recent gig she has signed on to will surely be her most intriguing part yet.

Shiver me timbers! It's the first trailer for "Pirates Of The Caribbean On Stranger Tides"! And that's about as fake enthused as we're going to get about this now dead franchise which inexplicably continues to rake in mad cash.

Either the filmmakers behind the upcoming "Yogi Bear" have a wickedly morose sense of humor or someone is showing off his considerable animation skills, but a viral clip of sorts has hit the web of a (probably fake) alternate ending to the forthcoming animated picture.
