While celebrities may always bemoan the lack of privacy, none of them have lived with the kind of scrutiny that faced Diana, Princess Of Wales. A marriage into the royal family turned into a lifetime in the tabloids, with a tragic ending that set the world mourning, and paparazzi on pause... for a few days anyway. And now the story of her last great love is hitting the big screen in what could be an awards season contender.

Yes, it's getting in hot in here, and it's not just the summer sun bearing down on you. What happens when two hot mamas get uncomfortable under the collar for the each other's hunky sons? No, this isn't that section of the bookstore you shamefully go into, it's "Adore" (previously known as "Two Mothers") the steamy new drama that basically asks what happens if you screwed your best friend's Mom?

​​Greenlight power is everything, and it often requires a top-shelf or name-brand cast to light the fuse. Werner Herzog seemingly nailed it with the power trio of Robert Pattinson, Naomi Watts and Jude Law for his would-be next narrative feature, "Queen of the Desert" -- the true story of Gertrude Bell (Watts), the traveler, writer, archaeologist, explorer, cartographer, and political attaché for the British Empire at the dawn of the twentieth century. So this should be more than enough, no? But with what one assumes could be expensive location shoots in far off locations outside the U.S., "Queen of the Desert" hasn't really moved forward. In fact, it seemed very up in the air in the last few months. Watts herself suggested the movie was on hold and Jude Law told us in a recent interview that he was likely unable to participate likely because his scheduling window had closed.

After earning a second Oscar nomination for her tortured performance in “The Impossible,” and having recently finished production on her portrayal of Princess Diana (“Diana”), Naomi Watts could certainly use a change of pace from such heavy-handed material. In fact, looking at her filmography from the past few years, you’ll be hard-pressed to find many comedies in the bunch. There’s Woody Allen’s “You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger” and of course her riotous turn in David O. Russell's "I Heart Huckabees." Now she's adding another laffer to the bunch. And we don't see how anyone could pass up the opportunity to star alongside Bill Murray, Chris O’Dowd and Melissa McCarthy...

To orient you to a filmmaker who's been away for far too long: If Wes Anderson’s central preoccupation is tightly-controlled diorama-like compositions, Tim Burton’s obsession is dark, kooky misfits, and Sofia Coppola’s fixation is alienated teenagers soundtracked to exquisite pop songs, then Laurie Collyer’s main absorption is the forgotten underclass and their perils.

Michael Keaton, Emma Stone, Naomi Watts, and Zach Galifianakis will star in Alejandro Gonzalez Innaritu’s BIRDMAN.
Generally known for his tough, harrowing dramas like “Amores Perros,” “21 Grams,” “Babel” and “Biutiful,” we've been waiting patiently to see what Alejandro Gonzalez Innaritu would be doing next. His options of late have included the con man/criminal drama "Flim-Flam Man" and the period vengeance tale "The Revenant," but it looks like his next feature will find him changing gears in and taking something a lot more lighthearted.
