Although still reeling from the failed domestic launch of “Battleship,” Universal still believes in the premise of toys-as-movies, and has entered negotiations to acquire the rights to Lego's robotic toy line Hero Factory. The writing duo behind 2010’s “Predators,” Michael Finch and Alex Litvak, will pen the script. [THR]

While many fans will probably just exclaim “Why can’t we just watch it already, Yo!,” patience is certainly a virtue when it comes to the highly anticipated return of the Vince Gilligan-created AMC series “Breaking Bad.” A show that actually needs no introduction at this point, it’s long been rumored that the fifth and final season would be split into two separate halves, much like all young adult adaptations do nowadays in an effort to milk fans' anticipation. And well, looks like that will be the case.

As you know, we love Bryan Cranston, but even he's gotta sleep sometime. The hard-working actor has already appeared in two movies so far in 2012 ("Red Tails," "John Carter") and has five more on the way to theaters ("Detachment," "Rock Of Ages," "Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted," "Total Recall" and "Argo"). There is no doubt that Cranston is in demand, but while we would've loved to see him work with Alexander Payne, alas, it is not to be.

Ask, and you shall receive. If you build it, they will come. We're sure one of those phrases applies to "Get A Job," the first feature film in a decade from "Rodger Dodger" helmer Dylan Kidd.

Memo to the Academy: Next year, you might want to get the writing staff of "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" to write jokes for the show, because this nine-minute bit is funnier than anything that happened at the Oscars last night.

Besides the total omnipresence of Jessica Chastain, among the many things the cinematic year of 2011 will be remembered for, is the return of some long absent film directors. After years in the wilderness, cinephiles were finally treated to new feature films from Alexander Payne, Lynne Ramsay and Whit Stillman. And now heading into 2012, another filmmaker, perhaps not as famous, is looking to get back behind the camera.

While Jessica Chastain was in every movie you saw last year, averaging a film every two months, they were largely indie productions, and they likely didn't see her swimming in a pool filled with money. But the actress is now set to take on a gig that will probably earn her a decent check, and best of all, she can probably work in her pyjamas if she wants to.

For the last few weeks Ben Affleck has been hurriedly assembling an eclectic cast for his next directorial effort, the historical thriller "Argo." We've watched (and reported) as Affleck has brought together a wonderful cast of actors, including Alan Arkin, John Goodman, Bryan Cranston (in a role that forced him out of Ruben Fleischer's "Gangster Squad" and apparently "World War Z"), Kyle Chandler, Tate Donovan, Richard Kind and Michael Parks, who all appear alongside the talented director-star.
