The long, long wait for "Waltz With Bashir" director Ari Folman's next effort "The Congress" is now nearly over. Whilst we're still surprised that the director, who was in contention for a Palme d'Or in the main competition at Cannes in 2008 with 'Bashir,' has been relegated to the Directors' Fortnight sidebar (perhaps "Seduced And Abandoned" has already filled the 'Hollywood skewering' Cannes slot,) there is little doubt that this is going to be one to track down. The first trailer alone promises a head-spinning experience.

A movie that has literally been years in the making, showing of some early footage way back in 2010, "Waltz With Bashir" director Ari Folman's followup "The Congress" has been coming along at a steady, if unhurried pace. While we've had glimpses here and there, a batch of new images have arrived giving the best look yet at how the live action/animated film will be coming together.

Wes Anderson's next picture, "The Grand Budapest Hotel," was supposed to star Johnny Depp, but that plan fell through. Nevertheless, it has an outstanding cast featuring Ralph Fiennes, Jude Law, Saoirse Ronan, Jeff Goldblum and regular W.A. collaborators Bill Murray, Owen Wilson and Jason Schwartzman. Other names rumored early on were past collaborators Edward Norton who starred in "Moonrise Kingdom," Adrien Brody who was one of the brothers in "The Darjeeling Limited" and Willem Dafoe who played the second-in-command in "The Life Aquatic" (the latter two also did voice work in "Fantastic Mr. Fox").

Prepare to feel very, very old indeed -- twenty years ago today, on October 23rd 1992, "Reservoir Dogs" was released in theaters, introducing the world to a 29-year-old video store clerk turned filmmaker with an encyclopaedic knowledge of film named Quentin Tarantino. But even in the months beforehand, his feature directorial debut, "Reservoir Dogs" had already started to upend the American independent film movement but with tremendously well received screenings at Sundance, Cannes and Toronto.

Yes, Harvey Keitel is starring in a Lifetime movie -- that's what we've come to. Although, in this case, we don't blame him for taking a trip to enjoy the warm weather of the Gold Coast, Australia.

While he's no Terrence Malick, Vietnamese-French director Tran Anh Hung isn't exactly rushing movies out. Since his critically acclaimed debut "The Scent Of Green Papaya" in 1993, only five films have arrived from the helmer, one of which, neo-noir "I Come With The Rain" starring Josh Hartnett, has never really seen the light of day. During that time in the limelight, though, Tran had one particular project fall apart at the seams: his adaptation of Kent Anderson's post-war drama "Night Dogs," which he recently discussed with Twitch.

Harvey Keitel Confirmed As Part Of The CastWith filming underway on Wes Anderson's next project, "Moonrise Kingdom," info is slowly starting to creep out about the film that has been keeping a lid on some of the finer details, but here's what we know so far. Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, Bill Murray and Jason Schwartzman star alongside newcomers Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward in the director's first period film set in 1960s New England, with the story centering on a young boy and young girl who fall in love and run away together, turning their small town upside down in the process. Gilman and Hayward play the kids, with Willis as the town sheriff, Edward Norton as a Boy Scout camp leader and Murray and McDormand as the young girl’s parents.

Ari Folman has been steadily moving forward with “The Congress,” his animated, sci-fi followup to “Waltz With Bashir.” The director unveiled some early footage last year at the Cartoon Movie Symposium in Lyons, France and has Robin Wright long attached to star, with Kodi Smit-McPhee revealing last month that he had joined the project as well.

You know, we give Robert De Niro a lot of flack for signing on to whatever crap project comes his way, but people seem to forget that Harvey Keitel has pretty much been doing the same thing for the past couple of decades too, taking his career where the paycheck pops up next, which leads to the extreme variations in the films he winds up doing.
