Kennedy and Jacqueline Lee Bouvier tied the knot, after the President passed on she entered another high profile power marriage with Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis. And now it looks he's about to get his own movie that will profile his touchy relationship with the Kennedys.

Jude Law, Alec Baldwin, Isla Fisher Also Among Cast, Leonardo DiCaprio Out; 'Rabbit Hole' Scribe David Lindsay-Abaire Penning The ScreenplayFor over a decade now, DreamWorks Animation have been consistently behind Pixar in their output: films like of "Shark Tale," "Monsters Vs. Aliens" and the "Shrek" sequels substitute star voices, bombastic action sequences and already-past-their-sell-by-date pop culture gags for heart and soul, to increasingly diminishing returns. But, to their credit, the company seem keen to change things, bringing on big creative names to aid their newer projects: Guillermo Del Toro will serve as executive producer on many of the company's new films, and top-flight writers like Charlie Kaufman and Noah Baumbach are writing sequels to "Kung Fu Panda" and "Madagascar."

Just over a year on, and we're still a little stunned by how entertaining Guy Ritchie's "Sherlock Holmes" turned out to be. Seemingly displaying the reboot mentality that's been Hollywood's curse the last few years, and coming from a director who hadn't turned out anything watchable in a decade, the film has its share of problems (principally the redundancy of Rachel McAdams' character and a sub-par final set piece), but the chemistry of its leads, Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law, carried the picture, and ensured it was one of the more quietly enjoyable tentpoles in recent memory.

Sibling rivalry doesn't seem to be a phrase that exists between Damon Albarn and his sister, Jessica Albarn. The latter, an accomplished visual artist, recently released the children's book "The Boy In The Oak" to solid reviews, and it's already making the leap to a film adaptation with some pretty strong talent behind it.
