Okay superhero movie fans, it’s time to let out a collective sob. Hayley Atwell will apparently not be reprising the role of Peggy Carter in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.” Of course, that shouldn’t be a total shock to fans who will be well aware that Cap’s sequel will be set post-“The Avengers” in the present day, but given that the 'Winter Soldier' storyline will surely demand some flashbacks in order to be told effectively, then we were also hoping that Atwell’s Carter might pop up in those.

We're always up for a good little thriller or a piece of noir, and while buzz on "I, Anna" has pretty much been muted at this point despite premiering at the Berlin Film Festival earlier this month, the cast and material is compelling enough that we're eager to give this one a shot.

Making movies is hard work, but if you get off the right foot with good source material and a solid cast, you can make your life easier. And that seems to be the case for BBC One who have rounded up a nice ensemble of players for their upcoming dramatic thriller.

The biggest roadblock to getting a biopic about a musician made is clearing the rights to the (usually expensive) songs and pleasing the estate. If the artist in question is still alive, the process can be made slightly easier, but if not, projects can drag in develop as everyone involved tries to find common ground to meet on financially and creatively. Which leads us to "All Is By My Side," the long, long brewing Jimi Hendrix pic with Andre 3000 in the lead that, out of nowhere, was announced earlier this week as gearing up to start shooting in a matter of weeks. We wondered if this might mean Experience Hendrix were on board with the movie too -- turns out, they're not.

Writer/director Gil Junger certainly hasn't been lacking in work. He's mostly a TV helmer jumping from show to show, wherever the next gig takes him, but "10 Things I Hate About You" remains his greatest achievement. The 1999 teen comedy starred Heath Ledger, Julia Stiles and Joseph Gordon-Levitt in a retelling of Shakespeare's "Taming Of The Shrew" that was more clever and enjoyable that it had any right to be. Junger tried to recapture the magic with a TV series that starred Nicholas Braun, Chris Zylka and Larry Miller and didn't last a single season, but he's going to be take another swing at the material.

Look out Disney and David Fincher, you might be beat to the punch. While the long brewing adaptation of "20,000 Leagues Of The Sea" has been developing as a mega 3D blockbuster with James Cameron lending his technical advice and wizadry behind the scenes, and Fincher in the driver's seat, a much smaller Brit production may get there first.

'Homeland' Lead Damian Lewis & Steven Mackintosh Also In Cast"Captain America: The First Avenger" was a funny one, wasn't it? The first half was the best superhero of the year, the second, a plotless, uneven mess. But it had many pleasures, and first among them was Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter. Given an unusually well-drawn female character for a comic book movie to get her teeth into, the British actress, a relative unknown in the U.S. who took the role after it was turned down by the likes of Keira Knightley and Emily Blunt, knocked it out of the park, proving feisty, kick-ass, and vulnerable, often within the same scene, showing wider audiences what many have known since her debut in BBC drama "The Line of Beauty" -- she's going to be a massive star.

It seems that Tom Cruise can't stop making movies right now. He's got "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" and "Rock of Ages" in the bag, he's currently shooting "One Shot," and after that the suddenly busy actor will roll right into the "Tron: Legacy" director Joseph Kosinski's "Oblivion." The movie found one of its two female leads in Jessica Chastain late last month and now a trio of actresses is vying for the other part.

Who Were The Winners And Losers Of The Summer Of 2011?

As the summer winds die down with a flat and uninspired whimper, the realization sets in: the summer of 2011 was for the birds. "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" was the last major tent-pole to open, followed by sleeper hits like "The Help" and the not-so-successful R-rated action comedy, "30 Minutes or Less." Many had forecast that the overstuffed summer would prove disastrous, with Jon Favreau predicting that, "There’s not a weekend where there won’t be teeth on the floor," but ironically it's Favreau's film that proved to be one of the biggest box-office disappointments. Financially, films did very well with three billion-dollar blockbusters – “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2,” “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” and “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides”-- helping the industry set a summer box-office record and nearly rebound from a horrible start to 2011 (Currently, 2011 revenue is running only 4 percent behind 2010, but in March, things were looking grim – 19% lower than the year previous).
