Burying The Ex, Joe Dante
Toronto unveiled their first wave of titles on Tuesday, and today it's Venice's turn, with the festival revealing what they'll be unspooling on the Lido. And as usual, it's an auteur heavy selection, but even we weren't expecting American horror legend Joe Dante to be given a slot. But it's a pleasant surprise.

Kellan Lutz The Tenth Level
Kellan Lutz! Emmett Cullen from "Twilight" has arguably maintained a better movie career than Taylor Lautner, which we wouldn't really have guessed back at the height of Twihard mania. He's managed to star in a string of indies, was even given a shot at his own sorta tentpole with "The Legend Of Hercules," and — God bless his agent — he has a role in this summer's "The Expendables 3." And now, in a move we can only call Lutz-ian at this point, he'll be playing William Shatner because of course he is.

5 To 7 Anton Yelchin Berenice Marlohe
"Some of the best writing in New York won't be found in books or movies or plays… but on the benches of Central Park," the irritatingly enunciated, overly-heartfelt voiceover in “5 To 7” intones alongside some pleasantly inoffensive cello bowing. Sigh… the protagonist is referring to the love-letter-like inscriptions to loved ones, the dearly departed, and family that cover many of Central Park’s finest benches. But more importantly, do you know where else the best writing in New York certainly won’t be found with a facile and groan-worthy lede like that? The sappy and painfully jejune movie “5 To 7.”

"The Impossible" filmmaker J.A. Bayona is prepping his next project, and it's a doozy, with an adaptation of Patrick Ness' fantasy novel "A Monster Calls," and he's now putting his cast together. And the first one on board is Felicity Jones, with the actress joining the Black List approved story that follows an adolescent boy with a terminally ill single mother begins having visions of a tree monster, who tells him the truths about life in the form of three stories, helping him to eventually cope with his emotions over his dying mom.

Review: Jim Jarmusch's Cultured & Cool 'Only Lovers Left Alive' Starring Tom Hiddleston & Tilda Swinton

Only Lovers Left Alive
From the very first opening titles, written in a Germanic font that immediately conjures everything from “Triumph of the Will” to images of big-busted ladies screaming in campy close-up in 1970s cheapie horrors (it may be the only time in Cannes that a film got a big laugh for a typeface) it’s perfectly clear that the Jim Jarmusch in whose company we’re about to spend a couple of hours is not the wilfully obscure surrealist of “The Limits of Control,” nor the considered, melancholic philosopher behind “Dead Man,” nor even the oddball ragtag troubadour of “Down By Law." In fact, “Only Lovers Left Alive,” Jarmusch’s take on the vampire myth starring recent muse Tilda Swinton and Tom “fast becoming everyone’s favorite actor” Hiddleston, finds the maverick filmmaker on playful, referential and mischievous form with hugely enjoyable, if not exactly weighty or important, results.

Review: 'Odd Thomas' Starring Anton Yelchin, Willem Dafoe And Addison Timlin

It's strange how intermittently bestselling novelist Dean Koontz has been adapted, and how those adaptations—from the early Ben Affleck joint "Phantoms" to the Jeff Goldblum starring psychological thriller "Hideaway"—have been almost uniformly horrible. Koontz doesn't have the way with characters or the homespun prose of his contemporary Stephen King, but he sells almost as many books. And most are written in a singularly straightforward, cinematic style that should make big screen adaptations easy and accessible (his late '90s techno-thriller "Dark Rivers of the Heart" was the best movie James Cameron never made). So calling "Odd Thomas" the best Dean Koontz adaptation yet feels like damning it with faint praise, but it's true. Too bad it's barely getting released. Koontz's string of bad luck continues.

Wayyy back in the antediluvian days of July, we brought word that Stephen Sommers' Dean Koontz adaptation “Odd Thomas,” starring Anton Yelchin, Addison Timlin, Willem Dafoe and Patton Oswalt, was being delayed, perhaps indefinitely. It seemed like a shame, because it looked like a nifty little supernatural flick, featuring Yelchin as a fry cook with certain paranormal powers who gets mixed up in something spooky in a Southwestern town. We knew the film existed, but it looked like it was maybe angling for a place on our list of movies that were shot but never released.

Rudderless
So let it be known throughout the land: William H. Macy has balls of steel. In addition to juggling a busy, successful film and television career, he’s taken on a new role -- filmmaker. His first feature film, “Rudderless”, is a poignant story that explores finding happiness in the midst of loss and pain. And you know what? It’s really damn good.

Seemingly loving this whole social media thing, Paul Schrader was a steady presence through 2013 on Facebook, during the highs and lows of getting his low-budget sizzler "The Canyons" out in the world. Now, he's kicking off 2014 by making a new film, "The Dying of the Light."
