With a new geographically-specific title and a summer release just announced, Woody Allen's latest Euro-flavored venture, "To Rome With Love," is just around the corner. Looking to replicate the success of "Midnight In Paris," a career-best box office hit that won Allen his first writing Oscar since 1987 for "Hannah And Her Sisters," details of his latest film are being kept under wraps. Luckily, we now have a better look at what's to come as a host of photos from the project have been unveiled.

Having conquered television with "Glee," it looks like the show's creator Ryan Murphy is gunning for equal big screen success, and he's assembled a helluva cast to bring the Tony award-winning, criticially acclaimed "The Normal Heart" to the big screen. Already in the works with Mark Ruffalo attached way back in the summer of 2010, the project picked up more steam when Brad Pitt took it under the wing of his Plan B shingle last year. And now it has brought some major talent on board.

Despite being, in our eyes at least, not noticeably better in quality than recent fare like "Vicky Christina Barcelona" or "You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger," the amiable "Midnight in Paris" became Woody Allen's most successful film in decades this year -- it's his biggest ever grosser, and was widely hailed as a return to form. Having already picked up nods at the SAGs and Golden Globes, the film is on track to do pretty well at the Oscars too.

As the summer winds die down with a flat and uninspired whimper, the realization sets in: the summer of 2011 was for the birds. "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" was the last major tent-pole to open, followed by sleeper hits like "The Help" and the not-so-successful R-rated action comedy, "30 Minutes or Less." Many had forecast that the overstuffed summer would prove disastrous, with Jon Favreau predicting that, "There’s not a weekend where there won’t be teeth on the floor," but ironically it's Favreau's film that proved to be one of the biggest box-office disappointments. Financially, films did very well with three billion-dollar blockbusters – “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2,” “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” and “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides”-- helping the industry set a summer box-office record and nearly rebound from a horrible start to 2011 (Currently, 2011 revenue is running only 4 percent behind 2010, but in March, things were looking grim – 19% lower than the year previous).

Other Actors Eyeing The Project Include Andrew Garfield, Annette Bening, Shia La Beouf, Evan Rachel Wood and Rooney MaraFile under 'very intriguing development': after more than a decade away from directing (with 1998's underrated political satire "Bulworth"), last week it was reported that 74-year-old Warren Beatty would be returning to Hollywood, helming a new untitled comedy for Paramount. Playlist writer Sam Price, perhaps a little cynical that evening, posited the question: is anyone going to care? Are his best days behind him?

Looks like Alec Baldwin is going to be in "Rock of Ages" after all. After reports surfaced earlier in the month that the actor was leaving the upcoming musical "Rock of Ages" for undisclosed reasons (some said there was a personal matter he needed to attend do), it looks like everything is hunky dory.

Memorial Day weekend is right around the corner and by the looks of it out there, agents, PR folks and news leakers have already left for the weekend so let's rewind to something we missed earlier in the week while we're all lamenting the fact that a horrible sequel is set to gross over a $100 million this weekend, sadly.
