As far as switcheroos go, director Spike Jonze can't really complain as his upcoming untitled effort has lost one hot young actress, only to be replaced by another.

The French adore James Gray. And we don't blame them one bit. With only four films to his name, he has already inspired a book dedicated his works, published by the France based Syecdoche Books (limited to 1000 copies, but it's bilingual and features interviews with Gray and the various actors he's worked with over the years). Thus, we're not entirely surprised that the first look for his upcoming "Low Life" would arrive not on a website, or in an American trade publication, but instead courtesy of Liberation, who also have the first profile on the film.

When it came to our super-early Oscar predictions last year, we weren't too far off when it came to Best Picture, or even the lead acting categories. But Supporting Actor & Actress? That was something of a disaster. Ok, so we called Christopher Plummer's victory, but aside from that, we were way off.

It has been three, far too long years since Spike Jonze's last feature film, the wonderful "Where The Wild Things Are" and while various videos and shorts he's done in the interim -- including "I'm Here" and "Scenes From The Suburbs" -- were nice holdovers, we're glad that his next movie, penned by Charlie Kaufman, appears to be taking shape. First announced over a year ago, Megan Ellison and her Annapurna shingle got things rolling by backing the project and over 2011 Joaquin Phoenix and Carey Mulligan came aboard. Now, two more great actresses appear to be boarding the film.

"Wait, what?" That was the general reaction around The Playlist water cooler when we learned that James Gray's next film, the tentatively titled "Low Life," was already in front of cameras in New York City. And we couldn't be more thrilled.

We can't say we were aware of the fact before, but it turns out that Bret Easton Ellis is quite the movie fan. His Twitter followers have, of late, been treated to streams of updates on the author's opinions of all the latest releases, with a little Oscar prognostication thrown in for good measure. We can't say we agree with all his opinions entirely, but it's certainly been entertaining, and we hope it continues.

It's hard to believe that just two years ago the world was waking up to Carey Mulligan. The actress seemed to come out of nowhere with her turn in Lone Scherfig's "An Education," and rather than try and go for big paydays in tentpole or franchise movies, Mulligan has wisely opted to work with filmmakers instead. Jim Sheridan ("Brothers"), Oliver Stone ("Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps"), Mark Romanek ("Never Let Me Go"), Nicolas Winding Refn ("Drive") and Steve McQueen ("Shame") now grace her filmography, with Baz Luhrmann being added this fall as she shoots "The Great Gatsby." And Mulligan isn't stopping there, as Variety report, she's adding two more helmers to the list.

Update: The Phoenix family have released a statement denying Sluzier's word that they were participating in getting "Dark Blood" finished saying, "Despite George Sluizer’s claim that he has been communicating with River Phoenix’s family in regard to releasing River’s last film, Joaquin Phoenix and his family have not been in communication with the director nor will they participate in any way.” So if Sluzier wants to finish the movie, he'll have to do with the help of River's family.

Film Now Has A Home At Warner Bros.Bravo, Joaquin Phoenix, bravo. After effectively putting himself into the wilderness following the faux/mock-doc "I'm Still Here," he is marking his comeback by choosing a variety of fantastic projects. He's currently filming Paul Thomas Anderson's "The Master," he's going to reteam with James Gray on the period drama "Low Life," and now he's lined up another outstanding project.

Shooting Will Partly Be On 65MM: Also, Is There A Scientology Conspiracy Afoot?Pretty much since day one, Paul Thomas Anderson fanboys, god bless their hearts, have been scrambling to turn over any breadcrumb clue they could find for further insight and details into PTA's upcoming untitled project, colloquially known as "The Master." First off, a very early, unfinished draft of the script leaked last summer (our in-depth look at it still seems to be the most authoritative piece on it out there).
