You'll have to jog your memory a bit, but way back in the fall of 2012, it was announced that Philip Seymour Hoffman would be following his feature directorial debut "Jack Goes Boating" with "Ezekiel Moss," a period-set ghost story. And then nothing much was heard from it. But today the project got a kick in the pants with the addition of two big stars.

The Wolf Of Wall Street
In the immortal words of Rick James, “Cocaine is a helluva drug.” And in Martin Scorsese’s “The Wolf Of Wall Street,” an outrageous, nearly three-hour-long hedonistic opus and cynical paean to American privilege, greed and debauchery, the characters hoover up mountains and mountains of cocaine. Based on Jordan Belfort’s memoirs about his time running a boiler room on Wall Street, his rise to extreme wealth, his wicked acts of decadence, and his inevitable downfall, “The Wolf Of Wall Street” is orgiastic and shocking; a gluttonous smorgasbord of sex, drugs, strippers, depravity and worse. Intensely perverse on many levels, it’s also one of the most darkly hilarious movies of the year.

Sutter Keely (Miles Teller) is the charming, good time guy who lives in the moment. Self-assured, he’s the life of the party, popular and he and his girlfriend Cassidy (Brie Larson) breeze through their high school experience. Sutter and Cassidy are like a teenage power couple that rule parties thanks to their appeal and all the social lubricants at hand. But, writing an admission letter to the Dean of a university, Sutter reveals his life is at a crossroads. Thinking she's caught him with another girl, Cassidy has dumped him, when the truth is that Sutter was using his good-time skills to help get his timid friend Ricky (Masam Holden) laid. But Cassidy isn’t having it and Sutter can’t see why this is the straw that broke the camel’s back with her.

The hunt for Osama Bin Laden might seem like a straightforward operation on paper, but juggling politics, changes in chains of command and a focus from international threats to homegrown efforts turned that job into a decade-long task. But as Kathryn Bigelow's based-on-fact account "Zero Dark Thirty" will reveal, there was one woman at the center who always had her eye on the endgame.

In a moment, it seemed to be over. When news emerged last year that the U.S. government had undertaken a daring, clandestine mission that resulted in the killing of Osama Bin Laden, the revelation came as a surprise. Nearly a decade after the horrific attacks on 9/11, the nation was a bit closer to closure. But how was Bin Laden found? How did the search continue through two different administrations in the White House? Well, strap in...

While primarily known for her genre roles in films ranging from "Final Destination 3" to "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World" to "The Thing," Mary Elizabeth Winstead got a chance to prove to audiences she's got acting skills to go along with her ass-kicking skills and good looks, impressing audiences earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival in the alcoholism drama "Smashed." And it seems that entire experience was a good one for Winstead, as she's lending her talents to that film's writer/director James Ponsoldt's next effort, "The Spectacular Now," which is already moving ahead.

Great news breaking tonight for fans of two very excellent TV shows. First comes word that "Friday Night Lights" star Kyle Chandler (Coach Taylor!) will be joining Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill in Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf Of Wall Street." Based on the memoir by Jordan Belfort and his experiences on the job in the '80s and '90s, and adapted by Terence Winter ("Boardwalk Empire"), "The Wolf of Wall Street" tells of the rise and fall of a drug/sex/alcohol-addicted New York stockbroker. DiCaprio is in the lead and Hill will play his best friend, who works in the furniture business, and is convinced by Belfort to join in the wild world of stocks. According to Deadline, Chandler will play FBI agent Coleman who is responsible for taking down DiCaprio's character. Since winning the Emmy for Best Actor duing the final season of 'Lights,' Chandler has been attaching himself to a series of interesting projects starting with last summer's J.J. Abrams hit "Super 8" and continuing with Ben Affleck's "Argo" this fall and "Broken City" alongside Russell Crowe and Mark Wahlberg likely arriving next year.
