Endless Love
“There was a girl, a beautiful girl surrounded by people yet utterly alone.” If you can make it through that first line of “Endless Love” without gagging, you’ll probably be able to brave the whole film without major incident. In fact, if you’re a teenage girl, you might even like the movie so much you put a picture of Alex Pettyfer on your wall and buy the (admittedly good) soundtrack. Do kids still do that type of stuff anymore or is it all Snapchat and knockout games? Why does this movie make us feel so old and grumpy?

The crowd this is geared towards probably doesn't remember, but "Endless Love" is actually remake of the 1981 film starring Brooke Shields and Martin Hewitt, that also served as an early launching pad for Tom Cruise. And so, what does this do-over bring to the table?

After Lee Daniels wrangled a losing political battle over the title of “The Butler” into a domestic box office take upwards of $100 million, he's found himself with a bit of studio wiggle room and an array of projects from which to choose. This being the man who helmed the wonky fever dream spectacle “The Paperboy” though, the chances of the director playing it rather safe again are rather slim, and sure enough he's hinted at a new genre project that doesn't reveal its subversion until late in the game.

Yeah, so there's probably going to be a lot of this going on before the roles are actually cast for "Star Wars: Episode 7." Undoubtedly, every agent and agency in Hollywood is throwing whatever talent they have at Disney and J.J. Abrams in the hopes of being a small part of what will be a mega-franchise, and today a couple of names have surfaced.

Actors That Hollywood Tried to make Happen and failed
This week, a small-scale indie Australian surfing movie called “Drift,” which details two surfing brothers struggling to overcome their debt-ridden backgrounds and avoid a descent into criminality, opens in limited release. It shares almost nothing in common with the Biggest-Movie-Of-All-Time “Avatar” except its star, Sam Worthington, who in fact plays third lead here behind two largely unknown Aussie actors as the brothers. If it seems like a far cry from Pandora for Worthington, well, that’s because it is. Nothing to do with the quality of the film, but just in terms of the whisper-quiet buzz it’s getting, which Worthington’s presence alone should have beefed up if his stock in Hollywood meant anything at all. Yet despite a concerted effort that happened back there, Worthington just hasn’t ever become a bankable studio lead, and so here we are.

Listen, we didn't like typing out that headline anymore than you liked reading it, but it seems the erotic drama train that is "Fifty Shades Of Grey" is going to keep right on rolling. As you know, Universal paid a staggering $3 million for the rights to the book last year, but so far, development has been quiet. Kelly Marcel ("Saving Mr. Banks") is writing the script, while "The Social Network" producers Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti are shepherding the project. So this bit of news is an interesting turn of events.

Having landed its Raphael just before in the weekend in the shape of "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" actor Alan Ritchson, Michael Bay hasn't hung around before locking down the rest of the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" for the mo-cap-heavy reboot of the comic/animation franchise he's producing for director Jonathan Liebesman. Deadline report that the mutant quartet is being filled out by Pete Ploszek as Leonardo, Jeremy Howard as Donatello and Noel Fisher as Michelangelo. The latter's perhaps the best-known of the quartet, having previously appeared in Liebsesman's "Battle: Los Angeles," as well as "Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part Two" and "Hatfields & McCoys." Howard seems to be a complete newcomer, while Ploszek is our immediate favorite of the four, given that he appeared in an episode of "Parks & Recreation." The four join Megan Fox in the film, which opens on May 20th, 2014.

So, will any of these guys be the next Robert Pattinson? As studios gear up to fill the space left by the now finished "Twilight" franchise -- "Beautiful Creatures" from Warner Bros. arrives next month and Sony's "The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones" hits in the summer -- another contender is on the way, but from the studio who brought you Edward and Bella in the first place. Summit is gearing up "Divergent" with Shailene Woodley, and it's time to find her a co-star.

There Were Probably Better Days To Announce This: Alex Pettyfer Will Play Kristen Stewart's Boyfriend In 'Cali'

This was either the best or worst day to run this news depending on how you look at it, but either way, Kristen Stewart probably wishes it were tomorrow already. With tabloids catching her in the act of canoodling with her "Snow White and the Huntsman" director Rupert Sanders, the actress and helmer both issued personal statements to the press apologizing for their indiscretion. How the fabled KStew/RPatz relationship will sustain remains to be seen -- devotees on either sides tend to be fairly extreme -- but business must continue as usual it seems, as the actress' next project keeps rolling.

L.A. Film Fest Review: Entertaining Romp 'Magic Mike' Will Put Its Spell On You... And Shake It Like Nobody's Business

There’s just something about Channing Tatum. Clearly, he’s got that magic touch (why else would Paramount be reshooting “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” to add more Chan?), a certain je ne sais quoi that would inspire veteran auteur Stephen Soderbergh to bring his early life story as a Florida stripper to the silver screen, while making the ultimate male stripper movie in the process. It just so happens to be a really good film too, one that’s about more than just shakin’ what the good Lord bestowed on Mr. Tatum and pals.
