While “Star Wars” and Marvel franchise rumors are just that thus far regarding Zac Efron, one thing is clear—the actor is certainly willing at the present to play up his public image for laughs, as “Neighbors” recently exampled to a surprisingly effective degree. He’s got the range to add some empathy to the character as well, and it’s clear directors have been paying attention to that juggling act, as a new role could see Efron back in sending up his partying ways.

Production company Parts and Labor has announced “Keep The Lights On” director Ira Sachs’ next project -- an NYC-set romantic drama entitled “Love Is Strange," starring Michael Gambon and Alfred Molina as a gay couple. Molina has a varied resume including roles in “An Education” and current Sundance entry “Emanuel and the Truth about Fishes,” while Gambon is best known for his role as Dumbledore in the latter 'Harry Potter' films. So Dumbledore is gay! Or at least, the actor who played him after Richard Harris will pretend to be in this one film.

Dustin Hoffman has taken 45 years as both one of our most acclaimed actors, and as a major box office draw, to step behind the camera. In fact, that's not strictly true; Hoffman was the original director of his terminally underrated 1978 crime picture "Straight Time," but struck by indecisiveness early in production, made way for Ulu Grosbard instead. But now, nearly 35 years on, the legendary star has finally completed his debut directorial effort, "Quartet," an adaptation of the play by Ronald Harwood ("The Pianist").

Making movies is hard work, but if you get off the right foot with good source material and a solid cast, you can make your life easier. And that seems to be the case for BBC One who have rounded up a nice ensemble of players for their upcoming dramatic thriller.

Billy Connolly, Pauline Collins & Michael Gambon Join Maggie Smith & Tom Courtenay In CastIt's somewhat surprising, given that most actors give it a shot at one point or another in their career, even if they never go back to it, that Dustin Hoffman has never stepped behind the camera to direct a film. He has, after all, won awards a-plenty, and been a fully-fledged, albeit unorthodox, giant movie star, for most of his career. The closest Hoffman came to helming a picture was 1978's Straight Time, a project that eventually ended up in the hands of Ulu Grosbard (1995's Georgia) - that is, until now.

Andrew Niccol's Sci-Fi-Actioner With Actor As Villain Now Known As 'In Time' Beyond his work with Christopher Nolan in the Batman movies and "Inception," Irish actor Cillian Murphy's career has been surprisingly low key. He's about to feature fairly prominently as the lead antagonist in Andrew Niccol's "In Time" (formerly titled "Now" and before that, "I'm.mortal") as well as Rodrigo Cortes' "Red Lights" but, other than that, his choices have generally been dominated by more risky, independent fare.

Michael Gambon, Bill Nighy, Judy Davis & Ralph Fiennes Also In Cast It seems like a little while since we've had a really smart, compelling spy thriller -- there have been some valiant, but flawed efforts, like Billy Ray's "Breach" and the Don Cheadle vehicle "Traitor," but for the most part, the genre swings between ludicrous, rubber-mask filled efforts like "Salt," and the frankly dull "The Good Shepherd." But next year has the absurdly promising "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" in the pipeline, and it looks like another British effort is joining it.
