Two world come colliding together in the what looks to be a pretty tepid wedding comedy, "Jumping The Broom," that is basically a Katherine Heigl movie minus Katherine Heigl but plus "white people" jokes.

Don't ask us why movie marketers do what they do but when the trailer and poster for "Arthur" recently landed, the film's love interest, indie film sensation Greta Gerwig, was nowhere to be found. Well, Warner Bros. have rectified that situation with a new, horribly Photoshopped poster that crams Gerwig in there and even she gets her name at the top of the poster. Guess the indie thesp is moving on up.

What's better than one Houdini project in development? Two! True to Hollywood form, just under two weeks after it was announced that DreamWorks had picked up the spec script from “Changeling” writer J. Michael Straczynski entitled “Voices From The Dead,” which focuses on the crime fighting duo of Harry Houdini and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (who were buds in real life), Summit has now started movement on their own film about the famed magician.

'The Fighter' Filmmaker Has Plenty Of Options To Choose FromExclusive: Sometimes an IMDB page needs a little bit of cleaning. If you're filmmaker David O. Russell, it needs constant care and pruning. Perhaps more than any other working director out there -- save possibly Ridley Scott who attaches himself to projects like you and I change underwear -- "The Fighter" director has been attached to around a dozen projects since circa 2006. "The Grackle," starring Matthew McConaghey, "H-Man Cometh," the rom-com "Aaron and Sarah" and "Pride And Prejudice And Zombies" are just four of many that are no longer happening.
