After playing the role of “Hard 10” in “She’s Out of My League,” and having her entire “Sex and the City 2” subplot revolve around whether or not her character wore a bra, it’s nice to see Alice Eve take on a role that requires some acting. The British thespian has just signed on to “Decoding Annie Parker,” based on a true story in which Samantha Morton plays the titular role of Parker, a woman who gets cancer and tries to fight it alongside geneticist Mary Claire King (Helen Hunt), who ends up discovering a gene linked to breast cancer. Eve will play a former friend of Parker, who has an affair with her husband, causing them to divorce.

More Casting Bits: Alice Eve & Liev Schreiber Join Director Mark Pellington, Craig Bierko Will Play A 'Stooges' VillainProducers in Cannes talk loose. There's a bevy of talks, negotiations and (shudder) pre-attachment deals going on around the Croisette this week, but don't be surprised if all the actors announced don't actually appear in the films they're touted to be in (see last year when, for example Amy Adams was listed in the original version of John Hillcoat's "The Wettest County," which died and then came back to life this year). A lot of these are early teasing promises to get investors involved and sometimes they work, sometimes they don't.

Film Greenlit With Only One Act Of The Script Ready; New Writer David Koepp Refusing To Talk To Producer Walter Parkes Considering how tricky the genre is to pull off, the original "Men in Black" still stands as one of the more successful stabs at the sci-fi comedy. It's no "Galaxy Quest" or anything, and it derails a bit in the third act, but for the most part it was inventive, genuinely funny and starred a central pair with perfect chemistry. 2002's sequel? Not so much; a bloated, unfunny mess that failed to capture pretty much any of what worked in the original. A third film is, belatedly, on the way, but a fascinating look at the behind the scenes shenanigans suggests it's going to land much nearer the second installment than the first.

Is "Men In Black 3" a "Wild Wild West"-sized disaster waiting to happen? Guess we'll soon see, but given that filming has been pushed back after a scheduled mid-production break in order to get the script right, signs aren't great for the sequel that Sony hopes will make some mad bank. Regardless of any issues the film is facing, a release date is set and this thing is moving forward, ready or not, and another face has been added to the cast.

Speculation surrounding Zack Snyder's "Superman" shifted direction earlier this week when it was revealed that Alice Eve, Diane Kruger and Rosamund Pike were all vying for a lead female role in the film that was not Lois Lane (though yes, despite some confusion, that character will still be in the film). Guesses were made at what the role might be -- Lana Lang or Cat Grant perhaps -- however, the part might be one that we've seen before.
