While we were troubled by Rupert Wyatt's exit and the apparent reasons behind it -- a rushed schedule in order to make a pre-ordained release date -- 20th Century Fox seem to have been going out of their way to make us feel good about "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes," the follow-up to the surprisingly excellent 2011 blockbuster "Rise of the Planet of the Apes." First they had a script draft by "Side Effects" scribe Scott Z. Burns, then replaced Wyatt with "Let Me In," director Matt Reeves. Then Reeves cast his film up, and alongside the returning Andy Serkis, landed Jason Clarke, Keri Russell, Gary Oldman and Kodi Smit-McPhee.

The actress will take on the role known simply as "The Gym Teacher," which we're presuming is the role of Miss Collins in the original, the empathetic teacher who looks out for Carrie and has an instrumental part in the film's climax at the prom.

With news yesterday that David Fincher was battling over an already $100 million budget on the original Netflix series "House of Cards," it now appears the rental/streaming company are interested in one of the most expensive shows already airing on television -- "Terra Nova." Fox canceled the show earlier this week but Netflix are rumored to be in talks with the network over reviving the show in the same way they will with another canceled Fox property -- "Arrested Development."

As surreal as it is to see a micro-budget Duplass Brothers film start with the stars and mountainous terrain of the Paramount logo, in many ways that contradiction and clash sets the tone for their new comedy "Jeff Who Lives at Home." Strange things are afoot in the cosmos as Jeff (played with affable confusion and large-framed, good-hearted charm by Jason Segel) is trying to keep his eyes open for what the universe might be telling him, in terms of his destiny and purpose. Also, his mom Sharon (Susan Sarandon) would like it if he could get his ass off the couch in her basement and go to Home Depot to get wood glue to fix a broken pantry door slat …

Producers only showed five minutes of the film before the bidding started between the Weinsteins, Summit and Relativity, though all someone had to say was “Streep as Thatcher” to ensure this would be a major purchase and, as planned by TWC, a high profile late ‘11 release. Expect it to be a big dog in the awards race.
