We just got off the e-horn with Martin Scorsese's publicist. While Vulture is partly correct that Scorsese is once again attached to "The Wolf of Wall Street" with Leonardo DiCaprio, the New York blog only has half the picture down. That drama about the rise and fall of Wall Street stockbroker Jordan Belfort is not next, nor is it shooting this summer.

It's a rotating director's chair of sorts for the long-gestating "The Wolf of Street" project; Jordan Belfort's tell-all autobiography of 1990s stockbroker decadence.

We're heading out of the winter blahs at the theaters and right into tentpole season, but if big-budget spectacles aren't your bag, HBO might provide some worthy distraction for you. The channel has the highly anticipated mini-series "Mildred Pierce" directed by Todd Haynes hitting in March, and in April, the cable outlet will unveil the intriguing "Cinema Verite" which judging by the brief teaser trailer, looks be a fascinating look at one of the first attempts at reality television.

Everyone wants to be in the Taylor Lautner business these days. He's got a following thanks to "Twilight," he's got a buff bod, good looks and is non-threatening, which makes him appealing to a big swath of mainstream America. He's being groomed to be an A-list action star and he's already got John Singleton's "Abduction" set to hit later this year, and the futuristic fantasy pic "Incarceron" in development among a handful of projects with his name attached. But now he's set to team with the biggest action director of them all: Michael Bay.

Wishlist Cast Includes Clint Eastwood, Jack Nicholson & Warren BeattySo much for "Kick-Ass 2" (sorry Mark Millar). Despite the reportedly rushed production on "X-Men: First Class," Matthew Vaughn certainly isn't tiring of the genre or cracking under the pressure and is looking to flip the equation for what will be -- if it comes together -- his third straight superhero film.

Says Script For Remake Is Better Than The OriginalFor fans of the Spanish horror flick "The Orphanage" it's kind of a good news/bad news thing. For starters, the English-language remake of the film is still not yet out of the gate but it still looks like it's in the cards as director Mark Pellington, who became attached to the project over a year ago, is still on board and just waiting to get a "go" signal from Warner Bros. And he's getting a little antsy.

Apichatpong Weerasethakul's Cannes Palme d'Or winner "Uncle Boonme Who Can Recall His Past Lives" is a tough sell, even for those who consider themselves arthouse nerds, so kudos to Strand Releasing for trying. With the film set to hit theaters this spring, a trailer has now arrived following the badass poster by Chris Ware, and it plays like a greatest hits of every bit of freakiness in the film.
