So what do Zoe Saldana, Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Michael Rooker and now Ophelia Lovibond have in common? Believe it or not, this grab-bag, eclectic batch of actors constitute the cast of a movie which is shaping up to be a pretty interesting little gamble on behalf of Marvel.

It's been a long, strange trip for "A Single Shot." Seemingly stuck in development hell, the project had an array of names circling over the past couple of years -- Michael Fassbender, Alessandro Nivola, Emily Mortimer, Terrence Howard, Juliette Lewis, James Badge Dale, Juno Temple, Leslie Mann, Thomas Haden Church -- but began finally firming things up this week. Sam Rockwell, Jeffrey Wright, Jason Isaacs and William H. Macy (who has been attached through various incarnations) were confirmed, and now we know the rest of the folks joining them.

Emily Browning is coming off an interesting, if not exactly successful 2011. She had the unfortunate task of leading Zack Snyder's teenage boy wet dream "Sucker Punch," a film whose failures landed squarely on the director, but didn't do much favors to the cast who were ultimately wasted in the endeavor. She then headed to Cannes to walk the red carpet for the provocative "Sleeping Beauty," a challenging, cold, hermetic film that despite its supporters didn't become an arthouse hit. And while she did audition for "Hunger Games," and lined up a part in the upcoming Michael Cera thriller "Magic Magic" she's kicking of 2012 will something a bit more low key.

It appears you can't turn around these days without bumping into a rising, young British actor (Carey Mulligan, Felicity Jones, Jeremy Irvine, Benedict Cumberbatch, etc) and we aren't really complaining particularly when their choices are so fascinating, so it's with particular interest that we'll be keeping an eye on "Summer In February."

While “Tinker, Tailor, Solider, Spy,” Andrea Arnold’s “Wuthering Heights,” and Steve McQueen's "Shame" are jostling for pole position at the Venice Film Festival, it’s easy to forget that films produced in the U.K. tend to hew, crudely speaking, to diametric opposites: either boffo pictures about stammering royalty or ones about cock-er-ney geezers roving around London with Kalashnikovs. The trailer for “Turnout” from director Lee Sales, which recently cropped on the site for UK tabloid The Sun, would appear to fall distinctly into the latter camp.

Penguins, She WroteWe have a small degree of hope that Jim Carrey's upcoming family film "Mr. Popper's Penguins" will have something of value for those of us who can now reach the kitchen sink without having to use a chair. The film already boasts a not-too-shabby cast of Carrey, Carla Gugino, Philip Baker Hall, Ophelia Lovibond, David Krumholtz, Clark Gregg, James Tupper and Andrew Stewart-Jones. Now the esteemed and totally awesome Angela Lansbury has come aboard the project.
