We have to admit, we were kinda worried. Last month, Rachel Weisz dropped out of David Cronenberg's brewing "Maps To The Stars," the project that would reteam him with his "Cosmopolis" lead Robert Pattinson. The plan was to shoot the movie next month, but with Cronenberg recently taking a role in "I Am Love" helmer Luca Guadagnino's adaptation of Don DeLillo's novel "The Body Artist," lensing this summer, we wondered about the status of 'Maps.' Turns out, we have nothing to worry about.

The project has been gestating for a number of years, but it looks like things are really moving forward with “Love & Mercy,” the biopic on Brian Wilson. This past January, Paul Dano signed on to play Wilson as a young man. Now, John Cusack is in discussions to play the older version of the legendary Beach Boys frontman.

One actor who made our feature Fire Your Agent: 10 Actors Who Need A Change Of Career Direction was John Cusack, and his upcoming "The Numbers Station" pretty much illustrates why he belongs on that list. Yet another generic thriller (once slated to star Ethan Hawke instead), this is the latest in a string of genre efforts by the actor that are as bland as they are interchangeable.

Here’s a movie that won’t make a cent in any international markets – John Cusack is hard at work developing a biopic of the controversial, right-wing radio host Rush Limbaugh. The project has a working title of “Rush” and is being produced by Cusack’s own production company (New Crime Productions), with Cusack also in line to star in the lead role. Because, sure, that makes sense…we can totally see the resemblance.

John Cusack and/or his agent have been working the phones pretty hard this week. The last two days have seen the actor sign up for the financial drama "Due Process" and the Stephen King adaptation "Cell," and now Cusack has busted out the quill again to put his name on another movie, which has a rather intriguing name attached to write and direct.

We recently put John Cusack on our list of actors who should fire their agent, but in his case, his career stall has been hampered simply by an inability to pick good projects. Maybe he got our memo or had a wake up call, because the actor is headed into two films that are certainly the most promising projects he's had in a while.

Last week brought the borderline-absurd news that Nicolas Cage was in talks to star in a new take on the god-bothering "Left Behind" franchise (this is a WTF even for Cage). This week brings the first major movie starring another Oscar-winner, Halle Berry, in five years, in the shape of "Cloud Atlas," as well as the barely-noticeable release of Gerard Butler vehicle "Chasing Mavericks." These things mean many things, but perhaps first and foremost among them, it's that certain actors aren't having the best of times.
