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."

Cymbeline Ed Harris Milla Jovovich Anton Yelchin
Dirty cops, drug dealing biker gangs.... Now this is Shakespeare. Ethan Hawke has reteamed with his "Hamlet" director Michael Almereyda for a contemporary take on "Cymbeline" and they are moving fast. Lensing only went down in August, yet a trailer has emerged online already and it certainly throws any preconceived notions of the Bard out the window.

One gets the impression that a dozen intriguingly bizarre films are always swirling around the mind of director Joe Dante, and it is a displeasure to see that the most recent work from him happened back in 2009 with “The Hole." Since then, a ‘60s-set biopic about Roger Corman and the ghost story “Casting The Runes” with Simon Pegg have been bandied about as potential next projects, but now some financing has come through for another, and it contains the kind twisted comedy and horror elements that you’d expect from the “Gremlins” helmer.

5 To 7 Anton Yelchin Berenice Marlohe
For most audiences around the world, Berenice Marlohe came to their attention thanks to her starmaking turn in "Skyfall" as the smokey seductress Severine. She hasn't been seen on the big screen since, mostly because she's been too busy working. She booked a part in Terrence Malick's forthcoming Austin music scene-set drama, but as those movies goes, who knows if she'll remain in the film. But more crucially, the actress is ready to show a softer side, starring opposite Anton Yelchin in the romance "5 To 7."

Anton Yelchin Kate Mara After The Disco
Indie bands doing short films is kinda so hot right now. As it becomes increasingly challenging to get noticed above the fray, bands have taken to the medium to give fans and newcomers alike a different way of entry for their music. Of course, Arcade Fire teamed with Spike Jonze for "The Suburbs," while Beach House took the more DIY route and made "Forever Still" themselves. And now a couple more bands are stepping towards cinema with interesting results.

Oh right, "Warcraft"... We sort of forgot the big-screen version of the massively popular video game was in the works, with "Moon"-helmer Duncan Jones signing on to direct at the beginning of the year. Given how long this movie has been in development—Sam Raimi was once attached, before exiting—it was no sign that it would be moving forward with any speed. But it looks as though Jones has the wheels firmly turning on this, with casting getting underway.
