Cliff Martinez Scoring 'Contagion'While we've lately been going off about the lack of quality female-led comedies with last year's "Easy A" and "Bridesmaids," "Bad Teacher" and "Friends With Benefits" on the way, it seems at least that gap will be filled for now. But another genre that has been largely void of strong female roles has been action films, but Steven Soderbergh is about to make a distinct impression in that field with his upcoming "Haywire."

Back in January, the seeds of doubt surrounding Duncan Jones' ambitious sci-fi flick "Mute" began to sprout into something more. In an interview he noted that reception to his movie was pretty cool and it was proving hard to get off the ground.

After some mini-drama in which Oscar winner Trent Reznor (we never get tired of writing that) confirmed that he was scoring and appearing in "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" and chastised the internet for ruining the surprise early by that info leaking, the Nine Inch Nails frontman has now bowed out of the project. Or to hear him to tell it, he was never really involved in the first place. Something like that.

Writer Penned A Version Of 'Bourne 4' & 'Dune'One of the hottest new writers in Hollywood doesn't have one IMDB credit to his name. That's because nothing screenwriter Joshua Zetumer has written has been produced into a film, yet, but that doesn't mean that a) it won't eventually and b) he's not talented.

Last month, a teaser trailer for the highly anticipated "The Hangover 2" arrived and announced the return of The Wolfpack, but once again, Justin Bartha's character of Doug was nowhere to be found. But there was a monkey featured very prominently (this writer thinks Doug is the monkey but no one else in The Playlist office will listen). There's still two months to go before the film hits theaters and full length trailer will likely shed some light on what's happening, but until then, these latest images from Empire (print edition, not yet online) will have to do. They also managed to speak to the cast and Bartha reveals that Doug will likely to get play along with the Wolfpack.

It's not the first time, even within recent memory, that world events have overshadowed the silly little movies that we write about, but given the terrible events in Japan and the Pacific overnight, which are still ongoing, Guillermo Del Toro's new project "Pacific Rim" is looking like a rather less carefree proposition than it did when it was formally announced at the start of the week.

Robert Luketic's film career has been a decidedly downward trajectory. He made a big splash helming the better-than-it-deserved-to-be Reese Witherspoon comedy "Legally Blonde" and ever since has made one bad picture after another, culminating in a double whammy of awful Katherine Heigl romcoms, "The Ugly Truth" and last year's abysmal "Killers." But it looks like Luketic is looking to change things up for his next picture.
