It looks like David O. Russell has found his new Mark Wahlberg, and nope, it's not Bradley Cooper. Directing her to an Academy award nomination in "Silver Linings Playbook," Russell has already gone ahead and cast Jennifer Lawrence in his soon to be filming Abscam project, and now they're planning another movie together.

With the film finding a home last week with IFC Films, you might think the stories around the making of "The Canyons" -- which have included a highly quotable New York Times Magazine profile, and news of its rejection from both Sundance and SXSW -- might be put to rest. But it seems there is still much more talk about, and after so much drama surrounding Lindsay Lohan's onset behaviour, her co-star and adult film actor James Deen has weighed in with this own observations about working on the movie. And it seems that for him, Schrader was more of a hassle to deal with than Lohan.

To be certain, there is nothing reserved about Park Chan-Wook's upcoming "Stoker." One of the most talked about movies at the Sundance Film Festival, the Hitchcock-ian thriller is making its way to cinemas very soon, and a new clip from the film highlights both its distinctive aesthetics and mood all in one scene.

If you're scratching your head and wondering where this seemingly random Julianne Moore and Jonathan Rhys Meyers horror "6 Souls" came from, we'll set the record straight. This is actually a long shelved horror from all the way back in 2010 that was originally titled "Shelter." In fact, the movie already went straight-to-DVD in Canada two years ago, and for whatever reason, it's now finally getting a release in the U.S. But things like this are held back for a reason...

We're less than a week away, and after Sunday night, Oscar talk will be over for another year. Well, until next fall anyway. But there is still plenty of time to honor the nominees, and among them is Jennifer Lawrence, who solidified in 2012 that she has certainly arrived. From her first Oscar nomination two years ago for "Winter's Bone," the actress has exploded with two franchises under her belt ("The Hunger Games," the new "X-Men" films), a new collaborator in "Silver Linings Playbook" director David O. Russell (she just signed on for his next movie) and a promising upcoming slate that includes Susanne Bier's drama "Serena." Too early for a tribute? That's up for debate, but she's already getting the career overview treatment.

Such are the times we live in that if you've been paying close enough attention, there are already some sites out there claiming Warner Bros. has a gameplan for when they want to reboot the Batman franchise. Maybe they do, maybe they don't, but considering that Sony kept only five years distance between Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man 3" and Marc Webb's reboot "The Amazing Spider-Man," it's certainly within the realm of possibility. But one person who won't be watching the Spidey reboots is Raimi himself, but not for the reasons you might think.

It's probably just coincidental, in fact, we're almost entirely sure it is, but just a few weeks after Netflix's remake of the BBC's "House of Cards" debuted, the original's writer, Andrew Davies, has scored one of the biggest jobs in British television. And we mean biggest in its literal sense, because Davies has been tapped to adapt Leo Tolstoy's not inconsiderable tome "War and Peace" into a six-part miniseries.

Rupert Wyatt May Replace Nicolas Winding Refn On 'The Equalizer' With Denzel Washington

"Jurassic Park IV" isn't the only proposed 2014 movie currently without a director. Sony's "The Equalizer" has been developing for a good while now, with Denzel Washington slated to star, but it's had a hard time keeping a director. Paul Haggis was once mooted with Russell Crowe in the lead, and then Nicolas Winding Refn came aboard late last year, only to exit the movie about a month later. But now, it may have landed a worthy replacement.

While we're in the last throes of the winter season cinematic blahs, there is a lot to look forward to this spring and summer, and we're not just talking eyeball-bursting blockbusters. New films from Park Chan-Wook, Woody Allen, Richard Linklater and Terrence Malick are on the horizon, and joining those auteurs is none other than Pedro Almodovar, and a bigger bite of his upcoming "I'm So Excited" has landed.

Ok, Fox, you have our attention. We weren't especially looking forward to "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" in the run up to its release, which meant that, by the time it landed, it was a very pleasant surprise; one of the most enjoyable and emotionally potent blockbusters in years, with an astonishing performance capture performance by Andy Serkis at its center.
