Errol Morris? Cryogenics? Sound familiar? Over the summer, the documentarian Morris let it drop that Paul Rudd would lead his adaptation of the memoir “We Froze The First Man.” Well, it looks like it's now beginning to take shape with a new title and one helluva cast coming together.

Exclusive: More so than any of his previous films, Judd Apatow's next movie is being kept firmly under wraps. We know that it's a spin-off to "Knocked Up," focusing on Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann's characters from that film, we know that Rudd's character now runs a record label, we know it's being referred to in some circles as "This is Forty," although that's not the official title, and we know that Apatow has assembled a typically salivating supporting cast, with Albert Brooks, John Lithgow, Chris O'Dowd, Lena Dunham, Melissa McCarthy, Annie Mumulo, Ryan Lee, Wyatt Russell, Robert Smigel, and a few returning alumni of the 2007 comedy, including Jason Segel and Charlyne Yi, although not, it would appear, Seth Rogen.

In the internet age, it's pretty difficult to anything under lock and key for too long, but Judd Apatow has thus far done a pretty damn good job at keeping the details of his "Knocked Up" spinoff under wraps. What we do know is that it's not a direct sequel exactly, but rather, it picks up with Pete and Debbie (Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann) five years after the events of the first film, thought that's about it. Well, shooting is underway and another name has joined the film. Variety reveals that the 13-year old Ava Sambora -- yes, the daughter of rocker Richie Sambora -- will cameo in the film as the best friend of Maude Apatow, who reprises her role as the eldest daughter of the couple.

There is probably no better (or controversial) marketer or movie hustler in the business than Harvey Weinstein. The man is capable of spinning almost anything into buzz about his movies (see last year's NC-17 rating of "Blue Valentine" which he promptly turned into a rallying point around the film), and putting Harvey into the awards season with a project to shill is like putting together peanut butter and chocolate. It's a no-brainer. And while movies that come out during the rest of the year may not get the full Harvey Weinstein treatment, if they can turn a modest profit and live a long life on DVD and digital, the honcho is more than happy. But that said, we don't think we've ever seen him personally get involved in promoting a film like has here.

Steve Zaillian's Film Rites Producing; 'Stranger Than Fiction' Writer Zach Helm PenningNo sooner than we post about a new Errol Morris movie, "The Demon In The Freezer," than another big update comes in for one of the handful of other projects he's got brewing. The famed documentarian is currently doing the press rounds for his forthcoming film "Tabloid" and it looks like he's parceling out new info about some of his upcoming movies.

Even though the film received respectful, rather than rave, reviews on its Sundance bow (our own review was one of the more positive), you can't cast Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel, Emily Mortimer, Rashida Jones, Steve Coogan, Hugh Dancy, T.J. Miller, Adam Scott and Kathryn Hahn in a comedy together without leaving us begging to see the finished film, and that's why we've been firmly looking forward to "Our Idiot Brother" all year long.

If you weren't one of the lucky few who made it out to Park City a few months ago, this past week has been a good time to get a taste of what you missed. Trailers have been arriving for Sundance hits like the Brit Marling starring sci-fi drama "Another Earth," Ben Stiller produced British comedy "Submarine," and the John C. Reilly-starring coming-of-age indie "Terri." Plus The Beastie Boys even released their short film "Fight For Your Right: Revisited" in it's entirety, which had it's debut in January during the festival. The latest trailer to hit the web is for "Our Idiot Brother" (formerly "My Idiot Brother") which got picked up by the Weinstein Co. at the fest and is set for a late summer release.

With the "Twilight" series' end set to leave a massive hole in Summit Entertainment's slate and bottome line, the studio has been scouring the globe for adaptations in an attempt to retain the loyal young adult/teenage market it has garnered. One particular upcoming adaptation though -- which the studio picked up earlier this year -- looks to be bringing in all the right talent to attract that very market. Author Stephen Chbosky's adaptation of his own novel, "The Perks Of Being A Wallflower," has 'Harry Potter' star Emma Watson and 'Percy Jackson' star Logan Lerman in the lead roles with Mae Whitman ("Arrested Development") also on board.

Talk about calling in favours. For their newest video "Moves," The New Pornographers and director Tom Scharpling have enlisted a ridiculously stacked line up of comedians, musicians and other indie-world folk to star, and the results are pretty charming -- though it's kind of too bad the entire video peaks with the fake trailer that opens it up.

Ok, so "I Love You, Man" wasn't quite the laff-out-loud comedy we were hoping for, but it provided some good gags and gave Paul Rudd yet another trademark line: "Slappa da bass!"
