After an almost unbearably long wait, with cameras first rolling a year ago, we now have our first footage from "Oldboy" director Park Chan-wook's English-language debut "Stoker," and yes, it looks pretty damn great.

His name might be pretty much unfamiliar to all but the most fervent Anglophiles, but Stephen Poliakoff is something of a legend among British writers. He started his career as a playwright in the 1970s, before moving into television, which has hosted the bulk of his work, followed by feature films like "Hidden City" and "Close Your Eyes," with Alan Rickman and Clive Owen. Poliakoff's consistently idiosyncratic, often oblique dramas have become a brand in to themselves, making him one of the few writers who can continually bring in huge audiences for serious, adult television when it airs on the BBC.

Here's an interesting TIFF title: Jonathan Teplitzky's semi-autobiographical "The Burning Man," which stars Matthew Goode as a successful chef at a Bondi Beach restaurant who reacts to personal tragedy with reckless behavior and an inability to connect with his 8-year-old son as a number of women in his life try to save him.

The announcement of new projects from some directors are greeted in The Playlist's headquarters with a robust cheer. These days, the announcement of a new film from writer-director Neil LaBute musters nothing more than a groan and an immediate game of 'pick the short straw' to see who has to go and review the damn thing. The playwright-turned-director started strongly, making Aaron Eckhart a star with "The Company of Men," and followed it with the flawed but interesting "Your Friends and Neighbors" and the decent "Nurse Betty."

For a brief time after the release of surprise hit, "Taken," it seemed as though the world was Pierre Morel's oyster. The one-time DoP had cult success with "District 13," and his follow-up, the Liam Neeson starrer, was an enormous worldwide hit, landing the French director at the top of action/sci-fi wishlists, and giving him the plum job of replacing Peter Berg on the adaptation of Frank Herbert's seminal sci-fi novel "Dune." But things haven't been so smooth since: "Dune" was canceled by Paramount, he didn't land the job of directing Universal's tentpole "Ouija," and his third directorial effort "From Paris With Love" disappointed commercially.

Colin O’Donaghue Also In The RunningYesterday, massive news broke that Henry Cavill had won the role of Superman in Zack Snyder’s new adaptation for Warner Brothers. Cavill is best known for his work as Charles Brandon on “The Tudors," but as predicted, the role went to a relative unknown, and someone who has experienced his fair share of audition hell. Cavill had been eyed to wear tights for "Batman Begins" and "Green Lantern" (among other franchises) and he even once before landed the role of Superman when it was in McG's hands, but lost the part when the project changed over to Bryan Singer who eventually went with Brandon Routh for "Superman Returns."
