There's an air of finality to the entirety of "Womb," the new film from Benedek Fliegauf. Using minimal shooting locations, primarily a cloudy offseason beach, the picture might be following young Rebecca and Thomas as the last lovers at the end of the world. One could argue that's even the movie's intentions -- when there is nothing left to love, we'll invent, and re-invent, new people. And Thomas is about to be re-invented in an exceedingly peculiar manner.

From one "Animal Kingdom" star to another. Late last year, Aussie actor-of-the-moment Joel Edgerton ("Warrior") was rumored to be in line for several Warner Bros. projects including "The Man From U.N.C.L.E," and the untitled "300" prequel (sometimes known as "300: Battle Of Artemisia"). Well, Edgerton never really landed in either gig, but one of his Aussie "Animal Kingdom" pals, Sullivan Stapleton has.

What would happen if we not only lost our ability to communicate with the world around us, but with the people in our life, in the most basic, fundamental way? That's the question at the heart of David Mackenzie's "Perfect Sense." Starring Eva Green and Ewan McGregor, the story follows the promising new relationship between two young lovers, just as a virus is sweeping the Earth, one that causes those infected to lose their senses gradually, one at at time. And as that ability to interact with the world and one another diminshes, the methods that remain to communicate become all the more vital and important.

While Eva Green's movie choices have always been interesting and eclectic, her otherworldly beauty seems to have made her a favorite for sword 'n sandal/fantasy pics. With "Kingdom of Heaven," "The Golden Compass," and short-lived TV series "Camelot" under her belt, she's adding another similar film to her resume.

Ewan McGregor has been in an upswing of late. Shaking off the creative stagnation of the 'Star Wars' prequels, he's been back doing solid work recently in movies like "The Ghost Writer" and this year's "Beginners" (we should also mention that he also totally kills it in Soderbergh's "Haywire," out next year). We're not sure if his next film, the sci-fi-y romance "Perfect Sense," will be part of this creative resurgence, but the just-released trailer does look intriguing.

Can Ewan McGregor string together strong back-to-back performances after Mike Mills' "Beginners"? Can he match the heartfelt chemistry he shared with Melanie Laurent in Mills' film with another much-loved Gallic thespian in Eva Green? And will David MacKenzie's fusion of a love story and a disaster pic work at all? All questions we're currently asking of "Perfect Sense," the latest effort from the Scottish helmer who broke out with another McGregor-starrer "Young Adam" back in 2003.

Tim Burton and Johnny Depp have been talking about teaming up for an adaptation of 1960s vampire soap "Dark Shadows" for years now, but for a while, it was unclear if the always-busy megastar would find room in his schedule for the film. But if "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" and "Alice in Wonderland" taught us anything in the last few years, it's that if the pair are attached to a VFX-heavy, production design-reliant project that plays right into their comfort zones, it'll happen sooner or later. And indeed, "Dark Shadows" begins production in the U.K. this week.

Casting News Explosion Includes Rob Riggle As Villain In '21 Jump Street,' Tim Roth In 'Arbitrage' & Much MoreJay Baruchel is joining the cast of David Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis." The rangy young actor will play a "financial whiz kid" in the film, who makes a fortuitous gamble over the course of the film's single-day narrative. Baruchel is joining a loaded cast, including Robert Pattinson, Samantha Morton, Juliette Binoche, Paul Giamatti, Mathieu Amalric and Sarah Gadon. Baruchel will next be seen in the Michael Dowse-directed "Goon," which he co-wrote with Evan Goldberg, before lending his voice to the second film in the "How To Train Your Dragon" series. Update: First tipped by C7nema and confirmed by reps for the film, Kevin Durand ("Lost," "X-Men Origins: Wolverine"), Emily Hampshire ("The Trotsky") and Patricia McKenzie have also joined the film playing Torval, Jane Melman and Kendra respectively.
