While the the 1970s-set drama centers on a young woman with a personality disorder (Berry) who struggles to contain her racist alter-ego, the early clips kept Frankie's troubling other identity hidden.

Mackenzie Crook and Elizabeth McGovern Also On Board A couple of years back, Focus Features proved that, if you found a mostly forgotten comic novel from the early 20th century, cast it right, and displayed a light enough touch with it, you could end up with a modest sleeper hit like "Miss Pettigrew Lives For A Day." There hasn't exactly been a deluge of copycats so far, but filming's just kicked off on a new British film that hopes to repeat the formula.

"The Adjustment Bureau" was a film that always held a lot of promise. Based, like "Blade Runner" and "Total Recall," on a story by legendary sci-fi author Philip K Dick, it marked the directorial debut of "The Bourne Ultimatum" writer George Nolfi, and featured a top-notch cast, led by Matt Damon and Emily Blunt, with John Slattery, Anthony Mackie, Terence Stamp and Shohreh Aghdashloo joining them.

Of all the duelling projects in the recent past -- volcano movies, asteroid movies, Truman Capote movies -- one of the oddest has been the two rival "Slap Shot"-indebted hockey comedies, "Goon" and "Hit Somebody." The former's written by Apatow stalwarts Jay Baruchel and Evan Goldberg, the latter's written and directed by raunchy comedy veteran Kevin Smith, and is based on the Warren Zevon song of the same name.

After walking away with Best Picture and Best Director (among others) at last year's Oscars, it's no wonder stars have been lining up to star in whatever Kathryn Bigelow's cooking up next. And though the likes of Sean Penn, Will Smith, Javier Bardem and Christian Bale have been linked to the gestating "Triple Frontier" (aka "Sleeping Dogs") the picture now has its first cast member. And it doesn't get much bigger than this.

For a brief shining moment, Richard Kelly looked like the next directorial boy wonder. His feature debut "Donnie Darko" was a nifty little headscratcher --- until Kelly released a director's cut which explained all the ambiguities away and seemed to indicate he had no idea what made his film so special in the first place. His most recent effort was the dreadful horror flick "The Box" that was most notable for Frank Langella having half a face, however his most notorious film to date is the 2006 effort "Southland Tales."
