Amber Heard and movies based on cult novels don't seem to fit so well together. "The Informers," based on Bret Easton Ellis' book, was largely ignored, while "The Rum Diary" didn't manage to bring much life to Hunter S. Thompson's work. And now comes "Syrup," which brings Max Barry's novel to the big screen, and this trailer suggests that Heard might be going 0-3.

With the Kristen Stewart/Rupert Sanders scandal still brewing on the edges of the tabloids -- and sure to be kicked up again when Robert Pattinson makes his first public on Monday on "The Daily Show" (!?) since news of the affair broke -- it seems the actress is keen to stay out of the spotlight as much as possible for the time being. Not only has she apparently pulled out of the red carpet premiere in London next Thursday for "On The Road," she is going to be staying off an upcoming movie set as well.

Amber Heard is in talks to join the thriller “Paranoia” as the female lead opposite everyone’s second favourite Hemsworth (well, except for Miley Cyrus we guess), Liam. The prolific director of “Killers,” “The Ugly Truth,” “Monster-in-Law” and “Win a Date with Tad Hamilton!,” Robert Luketic, is the man behind the camera, and Heard joins a cast which impressively already includes Gary Oldman, Harrison Ford, Lucas Till and "Nip/Tuck" star Julian McMahon. Heard most recently starred opposite Johnny Depp in “The Rum Diary” and may be remembered by many for looking pretty in the likes of “Drive Angry,” “The Ward,” and “The Joneses.” This will finally give her a chance to act rather than be little more than an accessory, as she will play Hemsworth's love interest who happens to be his ticket to spying into a rival firm in the corporate thriller.

Albert Hughes just can't catch a break with casting for his latest effort, "Motor City." After a lengthy search for a male lead that saw names like Chris Evans, Dominic Cooper, Jake Gyllenhaal and Jeremy Renner all linked before Gerard Butler jumped on board, the project has now hit another wall, losing its villain and female lead.

An open field. A girl. A fire. A mystery. Ignoring a brief and ultimately irrelevant prologue, the beginning of “The Ward” immediately pulls us into the story of a classic horror convention, the Survivor Girl. Except, tantalizingly, we don’t know what she’s survived and, given a few orchestral cues, we may even question whether she has survived or not.

Everything's set to go for "Syrup," which will be author Max Barry's first big screen production of his debut novel. The very favorably-reviewed book will be directed by Aram Rappaport (upcoming "Summer Song" starring "Spy Kids" Alex Vega) and be lead by Shiloh Fernandez from the abhorrent "Red Riding Hood" (and the relatively interesting "Skateland") and Amber Heard from the anticipated, but seemingly long-delayed Hunter S. Thompson flick "The Rum Diary."

Review: 'Drive Angry 3D' Is a Hellzapoppin' Blast Of B-Movie Ridiculousness

"Drive Angry 3D" is everything it wants to be. And slightly more. If one wonders to what extent filmmakers have NOT been using 3D, director Patrick Lussier answers with this picture, a crazy, bad dudes-and-fast-cars camp classic in the making. Shocking, grotesque, and completely ridiculous, audiences will get what they paid for. Or at least what they sneak in for using their leftover 3D glasses from "Justin Bieber: Never Say Never." Between this and his surprisingly satisfying remake of "My Bloody Valentine," Lussier might be shaping up to be the first genuine post-millennial 3D exploitation auteur... or something.
