Shot quite a while back, and originally slated to be released last fall, the action thriller "The Expatriate" is finally coming, with a new, even more generic title: "Erased." At least they both begin with E, right? Anyway, if "The Bourne Legacy" left you hankering for another similarly styled, but Hydrox version of the movie, well, here's your chems.

The Guy Who Made 'Liar Liar,' 'Patch Adams' & 'Ace Ventura' To Direct Paul Feig Penned 'Intouchables' Remake

So, remember Tom Shadyac? He's the guy who was at one time a box office comedy titan, thanks to "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective," "The Nutty Professor," "Liar Liar" and "Bruce Almighty." But then he decided after making millions upon millions of dollars that there was more to life and made a documentary. "I Am"was a lot of feel good, New Age-y mumbo jumbo, that found him talking with folks like David Suzuki, Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Lynne McTaggart, Ray Anderson, John Francis, Coleman Barks, and Marc Ian Barasch about like the world, man. That was a couple of years ago, and while he briefly popped up as a contender to direct a remake of Arthur Lubin's 1964 film "The Incredible Mr. Limpet" that had Zach Galifianakis attached to star, it didn't happen. But now another remake might bring him back in the ring.

The mythic college experience, the one dramatized in countless movies and television shows with a kind of oversized affection, involves a certain amount of reckless dangerousness, along with the all-important three B's – booze, brawling, and breasts. "21 and Over," a new comedy written and directed by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, whose marginal notoriety came from writing the script that would eventually become "The Hangover," is one such movie, in which the cinematically heightened, beer-soaked college experience is a defining moment that trumps everything, including basic human decency.

When he was asked straight out earlier this month on the February 8th Empire Podcast (while promoting the UK release of “Wreck-It Ralph”) whether his “Anchorman: The Legend Continues” cameo had been decided on yet, John C. Reilly was very non-committal. “I don’t know that I’m going to be in 'Anchorman 2,' ” he said. “I don’t know that there’s a spot for me or not. I have no idea. I think I’d almost prefer to just be an audience member and just enjoy it and not be part of it. But we’ll see...any chance to work with Will and Adam; I’d be a fool to pass that up.” Well, it looks like that chance has come up, and Reilly has elected not to be a fool and instead film a brief cameo in the highly anticipated sequel.
