Harvey Keitel Confirmed As Part Of The CastWith filming underway on Wes Anderson's next project, "Moonrise Kingdom," info is slowly starting to creep out about the film that has been keeping a lid on some of the finer details, but here's what we know so far. Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, Bill Murray and Jason Schwartzman star alongside newcomers Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward in the director's first period film set in 1960s New England, with the story centering on a young boy and young girl who fall in love and run away together, turning their small town upside down in the process. Gilman and Hayward play the kids, with Willis as the town sheriff, Edward Norton as a Boy Scout camp leader and Murray and McDormand as the young girl’s parents.

Olivia Colman To Play Queen ElizabethDepressingly for those of us in the U.K. who would like to throw off the yoke of our apparently-appointed-by-god inbred oppressors, royalty is big business at the moment. Between the enormous, Oscar-winning success of "The King's Speech," and the royal wedding last week, the Windsors are back, and there's more than one film project in the works at present. For instance, Dakota Fanning is attached to play the young Princess Margaret in the romantic-comedy "Girl's Night Out," although that won't move forward until after director Michael Hoffman is done with "Gambit."

You need to hear that Bill Murray is the hold-out on the long-gestating "Ghostbusters 3" project like you need a hole in the head. While a script was just delivered to the elusive star -- who has no agent or PR person -- the actor has been badmouthing the idea of a third 'Ghostbusters' film for what feels like longer than a year now. He's got his reasons and the biggest question probably is: Why a "Ghostbusters" film now, twenty one years after the fairly mediocre "Ghostbusters II" (which did $126 million less in box-office receipts than the original)?

Filming Begins In Louisiana In MarchOf all the projects announced in 2010 -- "The Dark Knight Rises," the untitled Terence Malick, "Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son" -- none excited us quite as much as "Cogan's Trade." The long-awaited return of Andrew Dominik -- who made a scorching debut with "Chopper" before returning with one of the best, if not the best, film of the decade in "The Assassination of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford" -- is an adaptation of the pulp crime novel by George V. Higgins (the author of "The Friends Of Eddie Coyle,)" about a mob enforcer trying to track down the thieves who ripped off a high stakes card game.

This won't come as any shock. "Ghostbusters" actor Ernie Hudson -- who played Winston Zeddemore, the late enlister with the Ghostbusters in the 1984 original film -- says Bill Murray is the hold up for the still-gestating "Ghostbusters 3" picture. Anybody coulda really told you that. All the four Ghostbusters have script approval -- the real "four" being Murray, director Ivan Reitman, Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis -- and they have to all be on the same page for the movie to move forward.

Wes Anderson, Jim Jarmusch, Sofia Coppola, Tim Burton — those are the names that have guided Bill Murray through phase two of the actor's long career and it's often easy to forget that this is guy who shot to fame going full retard in "Caddyshack." Truthfully, Murray's career from day one has been wildly varied as the actor/comedian tends to follow his whims rather than any prevailing Hollywood tides and trends. Following "Ghostbusters" he did a 180 and tried to dive deep into a dramatic role in "The Razor's Edge"; after earning wide acclaim for his turn in "Lost In Translation" he voiced the titular "Garfield"; following "Rushmore" he tried his hand at "Hamlet" and then went the tentpole route with "Charlie's Angels."
