We expect some form of denial on this one to come along any moment from the powers that be at Warner Bros., but like anything Lindsay Lohan-related, this rumour is spreading around the internet like wildfire.

Version Two With The Actors In Switched Roles Arrives March 24While there are signs that Danny Boyle will return to the big screen again -- the recently announced possible-recollaboration with Simon Beaufoy -- we may need to wait a minute as the director is going to be busy throughout 2011 and 2012 with Olympic preparations (he's co-directing the opening ceremonies with Stephen Daldry) and his "Frankenstein" play which is currently in previews in the U.K.

Filmmaker Shawn Levy is seemingly everywhere these days and very much in demand. The director of the "Night At The Museum" franchise and rather toothless comedies like "Cheaper by the Dozen" "Date Night" and "The Pink Panther" remake is putting his finger in multiple pies, and has seemingly graduated to the next level of filmmaking

For the most part, fashion-inspired films or advertising, usually focus on bizarre fantasies played out in the wealth and glamor of metropolitan settings. Not so, this time around.

Foreign Oscar Nominees Talk Their Process And How They Avoid The (Melo)drama We recently had the opportunity to sit in on a panel at the American Cinematheque with some of the best foreign film nominees at last month's Golden Globes (and 2 that have gone on to become Oscar nominees): Luca Guadagnino, Alejandro González Iñárritu, Susanne Bier and Aleksei Uchitel (Radu Mihaileanu, director of "The Concert" was still on a plane coming in from France). Moderating the panel was Screen International Editor, Mike Goodridge, who led a fascinating discussion that in the end, came to about 2 hours. While we haven't recreated every word for you here, we have a few choice moments that captured the theme of the afternoon: working outside of one's cultural comfort zone, and finding the truth in that storytelling.

Much to our surprise, we flat-out loved last year's "How To Train Your Dragon," easily the best film so far to emerge from DreamWorks Animation. Indeed, this writer put the film -- a thrilling, moving, beautifully crafted piece of entertainment -- on his Top 10 list for 2010. With the picture taking a handsome $500 million worldwide, it's no surprise that sequel-happy DreamWorks swiftly green-lit a follow-up, to be helmed by the co-director of the original, Dean DeBlois.

It's been clear ever since his debut in the otherwise weak "Hearts in Atlantis" that Anton Yelchin was destined to be a pretty big star. Across films like "Alpha Dog," "Fierce People," "Charlie Bartlett" and the unjustly neglected TV series "Huff," Yelchin's blended nerdiness and charisma with ease, and he's moved into tentpole territory in recent years with the only performance with a pulse in "Terminator: Salvation," and as part of the ensemble in J.J. Abrams' "Star Trek."
