Looks like some PR reps were playing their cards very close to the chest. Last month, some rumors began circulating about Antoine Fuqua's gestating biopic of rapper Tupac Shakur with an April start date being whispered for the film. We made some inquiries and were told an April production start for the film wasn't in the cards as Fuqua would be busy shooting the pilot for Fox's "Exit Strategy." But it's clear that some of those rumors had a basis for truth as the film is definitely moving forward and while it might not lens in April, don't be surprised if in May the pieces start coming together.

Our love for Wong Kar-Wai knows almost no bounds, even if the director's been slightly off his game in the last few years ("2046" has some defenders on staff, "My Blueberry Nights" not so much), so there's no question that his new film, the long-awaited "The Grandmasters," is one of our most anticipated of the year.

'Clash Of The Titans' Sequel Will Square Off Against 'Hunger Games' On March 30, 2012For every big movie that shifts its release date, there's a studio across town panicked by the move. With a jam-packed couple of years ahead, every slight change in the calendar has domino-like ramifications; for instance, Ridley Scott's "Prometheus" was initially announced for March 2012, but was almost immediately pushed to summer after Disney's "John Carter of Mars" moved in on the same date. Yesterday brought a couple of new changes that promise to cause problems for some rival projects.

Marvel is wasting no time on the continued expansion of their onscreen universe, and they've got a lot of projects on the go, but they must like what they're seeing in "Captain America: The First Avenger" as Latino Review reports that writers Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus, have been hired back to pen a sequel. Man, they really want to crank these things out. While there were some whispers that McFeely and Markus had their work punched up by Joss Whedon, the extent of that (if it happened) is unknown and if we had to wager a guess, we'd say that Whedon might've been merely been doing continuity touch-ups to allow "Captain America" to fit with "The Avengers."

Jeremy Renner Not Attached To 'The Master' Any LongerWho would have thought a billionairess would come to the rescue of Paul Thomas Anderson? That seems to be the case and perhaps, Megan Ellison, the 25-year-old daughter of American business magnate and Oracle boss Larry Ellison, simply just has a lot of money and good taste.

The stories of Adam Sandler as a generous superstar are numerous. In addition to his charity work and what's said to be a personable demeanor (amongst those the protective star allows inside), there's no doubt he's been loyal to both his fanbase and friends. Nobody, including the scandal-happy tabloids, seems to ever have a bad thing to say about the comedian that continues to top the box office for almost 15 years now.

When it was revealed last month that Stephen Sommers had been quietly removed from the director's chair of "G.I. Joe 2," we figured that a shortlist of contenders would come sooner rather than later. Well, it's been a month and Paramount has apparently got their ducks in a row and have a trio of uh, interesting choices to take over the gig.

While Andrew Niccol has worked closely with Stephenie Meyer on the script and was in line to direct, he's now busy with his sci-fi thriller "Now," and the task of directing an adapting of the "Twilight" author's non-Bella-and-Edward-and-Jacob-related book "The Host" has fallen to another.
