"Deadfall" starts off strong enough – three criminals, led by Addison (Eric Bana) and his sexy sister Liza (Olivia Wilde) speed away from some unspecified job (it's later revealed to be a casino heist). It's icy out and their driver (the only black character in the whole movie) overcompensates, avoiding a deer, which sends their vehicle cartwheeling over a snowy embankment. As Addison and Liza climb out of the wrecked car they notice their very-dead driver, his head through the windshield. "He should have been wearing his safety belt," Bana grumbles, dripping a syrupy Southern accent on top of his natural Australian drawl.

For his first feature film, Daniel Barber nabbed Michael Caine and Emily Mortimer for "Harry Brown." Not bad at all. Now he's gearing up his sophomore effort and has lined up three rising actresses to take part.

Okay, this isn't entirely revealing stuff we sort of didn't already know, but considering how shrouded in mystery Spike Jonze's next feature is, this is a pretty nice new bit of official information. But before we get to it let's just recap for a moment. The new film, Jonze's first full length effort since 2009's sublime "Where the Wild Things Are," stars Joaquin Phoenix with a trio of leading ladies in "The Master" co-star Amy Adams, Rooney Mara and Olivia Wilde. Plot details thus were said to center on a man who fell in love with a Siri-like voice. But that's not quite accurate.

Even though the politically minded Weinstein Company comedy "Butter" didn't exactly light up the film festival circuit last year, this writer, for one, is still mildly intrigued. A political satire using a butter sculpting competition in Iowa to lampoon the 2008 political race between Hilary Clinton and Barack Obama, a lot of critics have compared Jennifer Garner's uptight character in the film to House of Representatives Republican Michelle Bachman, and that should at least be worthy of some laughs, no?

While we've seen paparazzi snaps on set of Ron Howard's Formula 1 racing drama "Rush" -- or rather, "epic action drama" if you go by the official synopsis -- the official website has unveiled the first official photos from the film. Written by Peter Morgan ("Hereafter," "The Queen"), "Rush" reteams the "Frost/Nixon" writing directing team for a re-creation of the merciless 1970s Formula 1 rivalry between James Hunt and Niki Lauda, played by "The Avengers" and "Snow White and the Huntsman" star Chris Hemsworth, and Daniel Brühl, known for his turn in Quentin Tarantino's "Inglourious Basterds."

Following in the footsteps of micro-budgeted filmmakers like the Duplass Brothers, American independent filmmaker and actor Joe Swanberg looks like he's going Hollywood for his next project. And or, at the very least, the mumblecore-y director/writer/thespian has scored himself a pretty impressive and well-known cast for his latest film. Previously having only worked on tiny-budgeted pictures, with Greta Gerwig and Mark Duplass being the biggest two actors he's worked with thus far, his latest has just added Olivia Wilde, Ron Livingston and Jake Johnson ("The New Girl") to a film that already includes Anna Kendrick ("Up In The Air").

In a Deadline report about Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions landing international rights from for Jonze's next untitled project, the trade drops the little nugget of info that Olivia Wilde has also joined the cast.
