Kristen Stewart continues to line up her post-"Twilight" schedule with interesting gigs. Having already wrapped the Guantanamo Bay drama "Camp X-Ray" and Olivier Assayas' "Sils Maria," she'll next tackle the indie "Anesthesia." The actress has booked a small role in Tim Blake Nelson's film "about a group of New Yorkers whose lives are touched by the same philosophy professor." Production is now underway in New York City.

Kristen Stewart Nicholas Hoult
Drake Doremus is the kind of filmmaker we love to watch. Breaking out with his 2011 heartbreaker "Like Crazy," the filmmaker has stayed busy while also slowly and gradually expanding his horizons. His short film series "The Beauty Inside" for HP found him playing with episodic storytelling, while keeping his intimate approach intact, and his upcoming "Breathe In" (our review) starring Guy Pearce and Felicity Jones was another well-observed look at the complex emotions of love and fidelity.

Things have been a bit quiet for Kristen Stewart after a pretty loud 2012. Of course the "Twilight" saga came to an end, "On The Road" hit the festival circuit, was sorta released in December and then sorta re-released again this past spring and then there was messy situation surrounding "Snow White And The Huntsman" and tabloid-fueled scandal regarding her dalliance with Rupert Sanders. All of this goes to say there are good reasons for her to have kept a low profile. While 2013 has seen her exit a couple projects -- Warner Bros. con-man rom-com "Focus" and "Lay Down In Darkness" (which Scott Cooper asserts she was never really attached to) -- now she's ramping up for two new movies.

Between "Crazy Heart" and his forthcoming "Out Of The Furnace," director Scott Cooper has attached himself to a lot of stuff. "Lie Down In Darkness," "The Emperor's Children" (previously a Noah Baumbach project,) a remake of "Carancho" and the Depression-era drama "The Road Home." It's quite a to-do list, and now he's gone and added another to the pile.

According to a report in Variety, Will Smith is lining up his next role – as an older con artist who teaches a young female con artist (to be played by Kristen Stewart) his thieving ways. The movie, entitled "Focus," is written and directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, who most recently directed the hit comedy "Crazy, Stupid, Love" for Warner Bros. (the same studio producing "Focus").

20 Unforgettable Nude Scenes
Not to dick around, but we've got nudity on the boob right now. Mind. On the mind. Thing is, with an intriguing article over at EW exploring the death of the movie sex scene and the rise of the New Prudishness, with waves made over Kristen Stewart's nudity and handjobs in "On the Road," and now with this week's "Trance" under fire from some quarters for Rosario Dawson's (some say plot-driven, others say gratuitous) birthday suit scene, we've been thinking about nakedness in film almost as much as Seth McFarlane was when he wrote his already-infamous Oscars opening song, though largely without, we hope, the sniggering misogyny.

Watch: No Handjobs In New Clip From 'On The Road' (Yes, It's Getting Released Again Or Something)

So, in case you thought you missed "On The Road" or forgot about it entirely, the movie is actually still coming and/or getting released again. Or something. Basically, Walter Salles' film was supposed to open in December -- Kristen Stewart even did a big press sweep to promote it at the time -- and then at the last second it was yanked or they decided to hold on expanding it until the spring. So here we are again, and now some awkward promotion is here to remind you that this is now an option at your local theater. (Again).

There will be a lot of awards handed out tonight at the Oscars, but one you won't see is for Best Handjob. But luckily, the folks at Funny Or Die have managed to give out the honor themselves, and believe it or not, happy endings featured in more than a few movies this year.

2012 wasn't lacking in terrible films, but it seems for the folks at the annual Razzie Awards -- celebrating the very best of the worst -- it was time to honor one franchise for delivering consistently schlocky films to massive box office success.

Kristen Stewart & Elizabeth Banks Join Jim Sturgess In 'Secretary' Director Steven Shainberg's 'The Big Shoe'

When we put together our 'where are they now' list of directors who'd gone years without making a film, one of the ones who didn't quite make the cut, but came very close, was Steven Shainberg. The filmmaker's second film "Secretary" was one of the more enduring indie cult classics of the first half of the 00s, but follow-up "Fur," with Nicole Kidman and Robert Downey Jr, about Diane Arbus, wasn't embraced by either critics or audiences, and seven years have passed since that film.
