With the "Twilight" series' end set to leave a massive hole in Summit Entertainment's slate and bottome line, the studio has been scouring the globe for adaptations in an attempt to retain the loyal young adult/teenage market it has garnered. One particular upcoming adaptation though -- which the studio picked up earlier this year -- looks to be bringing in all the right talent to attract that very market. Author Stephen Chbosky's adaptation of his own novel, "The Perks Of Being A Wallflower," has 'Harry Potter' star Emma Watson and 'Percy Jackson' star Logan Lerman in the lead roles with Mae Whitman ("Arrested Development") also on board.

Taylor Lautner may have found his leading lady, and it's an actress who, like Jacob himself, is no stranger to tentpole fare.

Plus Sundance Flicks 'Silent House,' 'Bengali Detective' & 'Circumstance' Find HomesWith Sundance on, it's sales time for studios and distributors, as everyone in town competes to pick up the next would-be indie phenomenon. In what's been a more lively market for acquisitions than in recent years (albeit with few "Happy, Texas"--style big money sales), pictures such as "Like Crazy," "Homework," "Marcie Martha May Marlene" and "The Ledge" have all found homes, along with documentaries "Life in a Day" and "Page One."

Lautner Also Attached To 'Bourne'-Esque Spy Vehicle With filming now underway on the final "Twilight" movie, the two-part werewolf-falls-in-love-with-a-baby extravaganza that is "Breaking Dawn," the franchise's three leads are starting to look to their careers beyond the confines of Forks, Washington. Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are, to their credit, trying to work with top talent on high-class projects, with the former signing last week to star in David Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis," while the latter will appear, most likely looking bored and sleepy, in Walter Salles' adaptation of Jack Kerouac's "On The Road" later in the year.

Actress Talks Taking On Iconic Role For whatever reason (perhaps a sudden influx of late-night cable repeats of "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes"...), Marilyn Monroe is somewhat in vogue. For instance, Andrew Dominik is working on an adaptation of Joyce Carol Oates' Monroe-centric novel "Blonde," with Naomi Watts. That's a few years off yet, as the director's first heading for crime thriller "Cogan's Trade," but another take on the legendary star has just wrapped in the UK -- "My Week With Marilyn."
