Tom Wilkinson, Alfred Molina & More In Talks To JoinThere's been "Amadeus" (Mozart), "Immortal Beloved" (Beethoven) and now the life of Italian virtuoso Antonio Vivaldi will be the next celebrated composer who will receive the silver screen biopic treatment. The picture will come from little known director Boris Damast, and for a filmmaker with only the generally-panned 1999 film "Pros & Cons" under his credits, Damast has conjured up quite the ensemble cast with Max Irons and Clare Foy set to star while Elle Fanning, Neve Campbell, Jacqueline Bisset, Tom Wilkinson, Alfred Molina and Sebastian Koch are all in advanced talks to join the leading duo of up-and-comers.

How do you prevent sibling rivalry? Do a movie together. Not a band plan at all, but when it's something as potentially amazing as this, we hope the Fanning sisters work collaboratively more often.

For the most part, fashion-inspired films or advertising, usually focus on bizarre fantasies played out in the wealth and glamor of metropolitan settings. Not so, this time around.

Maybe it's just because virtually every other Super Bowl trailer felt like being headbutted by an exploding Playstation in a candy store, but the first proper look at J.J. Abrams' top-secret "Super 8" seemed to stand head and shoulders above the rest; sure, it's got its fair share of things blowing up too, but it teased an actual movie, not just a bloated CGI-fest. Word's been typically quiet from the secretive hyphenate's latest project since the surprise announcement teaser last summer, but Abrams broke cover as the TV spot was aired to talk to Hero Complex, and a few more concrete details have emerged, both about the plot, and what the writer-director is aiming for.

Say what you will about fashion advertising but designer labels have deep pockets have never been afraid of spending it and employing top tier talent. The past year alone has seen Martin Scorsese, Frank Miller, David Lynch and Gia Coppola all dabbling in the fashion world with interesting results and this spring we can expect spots from Darren Aronofsky for Yves St. Laurent (with Vincent Cassel) and Sofia Coppola for Miss Dior Cherie (with Natalie Portman). And it won't end there as another fashion house has teamed with a rising star and an acclaimed band to promote their latest line.

We're unashamed fans of Sofia Coppola here. Obviously, she's not great in "The Godfather Part III," but as far as her directing work goes, "The Virgin Suicides" stands as one of the stronger debuts in recent memory, "Lost In Translation," despite the backlash, is still pretty excellent, and even "Marie Antoinette," with its severely miscast leads, has a lot to like, not least one of the all-time greatest soundtrack compilations. So it's with a heavy heart that we report that her fourth film "Somewhere," is the film that Coppola's detractors have been warning us about all this time, and a tedious misfire.
