Australian director P.J. Hogan burst on the international scene in 1994 with the smash indie hit "Muriel's Wedding," which also launched actress Toni Collette's career. In the ensuing years he's directed the Julia Roberts vehicle, "My Best Friend's Wedding," the underseen "Unconditional Love," and 2009's "Confessions of a Shopaholic" starring Aussie actress Isla Fisher. For his latest feature-length effort, "Mental," Hogan reteams again with his "Muriel's Wedding" star.

Last month Anthony LaPaglia made some waves when he revealed that he exited Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained," which was pushing back his shooting schedule, in order to maintain the commitment he made to star in Robert Connolly's Julian Assange film "Underground." Financing was coming together around the actor's name, and not only that, LaPaglia had worked previously with the helmer on "Balibo." And ultimately it seems he made the right choice. With Assange in the headlines once again as his diplomatic fate is sorted out in the U.K., "Underground" is timelier than ever.

As "Django Unchained" made its way in front of cameras, Quentin Tarantino saw both the cast and script for his upcoming slavery/western/vengeance pic change as production moved along. Joseph Gordon-Levitt had to bail on his small role in the film, Kevin Costner couldn't commit to his role either, Sacha Baron Cohen had to bow out, and Kurt Russell also exited the picture (and while Jonah Hill did initially turn down the movie due to scheduling, he was able to join later on, albeit in a different role). And it looks like yet another actor left the project over timing.

With their promising adaptation of Arthur Miller's "A View From The Bridge," with names like Vera Farmiga and Mia Wasikowska who were attached to star failing to materialize, Robert Connolly and Anthony LaPaglia (who previously teamed on "Balibo") have now set their sights on a film about one of the biggest international political figures in recent times, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.

Anthology films are back in vogue after the relative success of the "Cities of Love" project which spawned "Paris, je t'aime" and "New York, I Love You," while there are plans for similar films in Rio, Shanghai, Jerusalem and Berlin. While the finished products are almost always (and perhaps inevitably) a mixed bag, it's easy to see why these projects appeal to filmmakers. The process is fairly brief, it guarantees their short film distribution (unless you're Scarlett Johansson that is), attracts high-profile talent at a cut price, and allows them to pay tribute to a city they have a special connection to.
