Nachrichten aus Berlin! That's “news from Berlin” to you English. But although it's from Berlin, it's about Rio de Janeiro, which is confusing. But yes, news has arrived that John Turturro and Vanessa Paradis (who paired up in his upcoming directorial effort "Fading Gigolo") have signed on for a segment in the forthcoming “Rio, Eu Te Amo” — and if you don't speak Portuguese, you can work it out from the previous films in the series of city-focused anthologies, “Paris, je t'aime” and “New York, I Love You,” the first of which was a surprise success back in 2006.

Sienna Miller Whit Stillman Love And Friendship Chloe Sevigny
Though we waited far too long between Whit Stillman's "Last Days Of Disco" and 2011's "Damsels In Distress," it looks like the filmmaker won't be taking such a long break again. Last summer came word that he was working on a movie adaptation of Jane Austen's "Lady Susan," but we were thrown for a loop when when it was revealed at the end of January, that the concept was being turned into a book, “Love & Friendship: An Adaptation of Jane Austen’s Unfinished Novella Concerning the Beautiful Lady Susan Vernon, Her Loves and Friendships, and the Strange Antagonism of the DeCourcy Family.” So is the movie dead? Nope.

The Sundance Institute’s Screenwriters and Directors Labs have played an instrumental part in guiding all kinds of talent over the past years. And if you need any evidence, look no further than this weekend's "Ain't Them Bodies Saints," which was developed up in Park City, before shooting last year. And now, another movie is getting going, boasting stars, indie spirit and a Sundance badge of honor. And thus it'll be one we keep an eye on....

The American Film Market is in full swing at the moment, and back at the event in 2009, “The Electric Slide” was being shopped to potential buyers with a mocked up poster featuring its attached stars, Ewan McGregor and Carey Mulligan. Fast-forward three years and the film is back at the AFM where Myriad Pictures has taken on sales duties for the flick, which is now being top-lined by Jim Sturgess and Isabel Lucas.

This writer wasn’t a huge fan of the first season of the Ryan Murphy-created “American Horror Story,” but if going solely by marketing materials alone, the spooky posters that debuted Tuesday to promote season 2 alone where enough to garner some interest in checking out the new season as it heads to a Briarcliff, Massachusetts mental institution for “American Horror Story: Asylum.”

Malin Akerman has had a bit of an unlucky run on the big screen in 2012, with "Wanderlust" and "Rock Of Ages" both underperforming, and the upcoming "Stolen" with Nicolas Cage looking like....well, a Nicolas Cage movie. But she's hoping to cap off the the year on a stronger note. The actress is headed to the small screen for some guest stints on ABC's "Suburgatory." The episodes, set to air near Thanksgiving and Christmas, will find her popping up as the "beautiful and free-spirited singer-songwriter" mother of Tessa (Jane Levy), with whom she hopes to form a relationship and put her troubled past behind her. "Suburgatory" returns in October.

Certainly, Chloe Sevigny -- who has movies like "Kids" and "The Brown Bunny" on her resumé -- has never shied away from risky or challenging roles, but unlike those aforementioned films, this latest endeavor might be for her most mainstream audience yet.

Already the out-and-out definition of a entertainment multi-hyphenate, poetry is something that also evidently flows in James Franco's blood, and is a world he loves to delve into for his film projects. Franco has made several shorts based on poems, including works by Anthony Hecht ("The Feast Of Stephen"), Spencer Reece ("The Clerk's Tale") and Frank Bidart ("Herbert White") before playing Hart Crane in "The Broken Tower" and Allen Ginsberg in "Howl." And it doesn't end there either.

“Glee” creator Ryan Murphy’s “American Horror Story” is certainly more in the vein of his early FX hit “Nip/Tuck” in its absurdity-to-oddness ratio, acting as a horror soap opera that isn’t afraid to toy with both its characters and audience. In fact, the second season will see some of the original cast return, including Jessica Lange, Zachary Quinto, Evan Peters and Sarah Paulson, but will see them playing different characters than the ones they’ve become known for. Now, a new talent will also be joining, and apparently it will be a rather passionate entity.

While we'll have to wait patiently for the pieces to come together on Jim Jarmusch's awesome vampire flick that at one time had Michael Fassbender, Mia Wasikowska and Tilda Swinton set to star, it looks like the director isn't sitting idle. Jarmusch has become closely aligned with Mark Webber, producing his directorial debut "Explicit Ills" and casting him in "Broken Flowers." We caught up with Webber at the Sundance Film Festival where he's unspooling his latest effort behind the camera "The End Of Love" (check out our review here) and when we asked about what he might direct next, he instead revealed he's once again going to be working with Jarmusch on an intriguing new project.
