At one point a few years ago, Paul Greengrass was looking to make a biopic on legendary rocker Jimi Hendrix with Anthony Mackie in the lead. But when the Hendrix estate wouldn't sign off on the project, it fell apart and everyone moved on. But now, things are moving again. Mackie is back to play the axeman, with Ol Parker ("Now Is Good") at the helm of the movie "which chronicles the last nine days of Hendrix's life."

Well, we'll say this about Christoph Waltz—he's got playing a villain down cold. Taking home an Oscar for playing the baddie in Quentin Tarantino's "Inglourious Basterds" (and another one for doing a variation of that role in "Django Unchained"), Hollywood has boxed him in as the antagonist in both "The Green Hornet" and "The Three Musketeers." And once again, he'll be twirling the metaphorical mustache in a big league studio movie.

The risk of going undercover (especially in the movies) is that you can go so deep that you can't come up again. And that threat forms the crux of "Sound Of My Voice" director Zal Batmanglij's latest tale of infiltration, "The East." Only this time, it's coming with a zeitgeist-worthy twist.

Actor/writer Brit Marling and director/writer Zal Batmanglij -- the creative team behind the smart little indie "The Sound Of My Voice" -- are just getting started, but their sophomore effort is about to arrive and it's hopefully the second chapter in a long line of collaborations. The duo employ genre elements and then turn them on their sides with an independent, character-driven perspective and the results, so far, have been certainly worthwhile. The premise of their latest, "The East," is super intriguing as well and centers on an operative for an elite private intelligence firm (Marling) who is tasked with infiltrating an anarchist group known for executing covert attacks upon major corporations. However, personal conflicts arise when she integrates into the group and begins to fall for one of its charismatic members.
