It's the centenary year of famed author Charles Dickens and he's having a bit of a moment. The writer was dipped into the world of fanboys when Christopher Nolan revealed during press rounds for "The Dark Knight Rises" that "A Tale Of Two Cities" was an influence on the Batman film, while it seems filmmakers are falling over themselves to bring "Great Expectations" to the big screen. Again. Last year, Brit viewers got a miniseries starring Ray Winstone and Gillian Anderson, and now, less than twelve months later, another take on the story is on the way.

So a couple of years ago, they remade “Clash Of The Titans.” Do you remember that? No? Well, it was pretty successful. Box Office Mojo says it made about $500 million. There were some special effects. It was in 3D. Gods, monsters, that sort of thing. Seems like a can’t miss thing. Apparently Danny Huston was in it. Well, they’ve made a sequel, believe it or not. Does it match up to the last film? Not sure. It seems this has gone from a forgettable movie to a forgettable franchise.

First Synopsis Suggest That Judi Dench's M Will Be Front-And-CenterUpdate: The official Bond twitter account, @007, have revealed the first synopsis for the project, which reads: "Bond's loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost." It certainly backs up the idea that it's a stand-alone tale, and suggests a bigger role for Dench, as Bond's superior M, than ever before. Intriguing stuff...

Carey Mulligan, Felicity Jones, Abbie Cornish & Imogen Poots In Contention For Female LeadHis Lord Voldemort might *spoiler* have finally met his end this weekend in "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part Two," but Ralph Fiennes isn't hanging about: he's playing an unknown role in Sam Mendes' "Bond 23," and he's in rehearsal to play Prospero in "The Tempest" on stage in London. But the thespian isn't just sticking to acting: his directorial debut, "Coriolanus," picked up strong reviews at the Berlin Film Festival at the start of the year, and will hit theaters in the fall, and the actor's now planning another venture behind the camera that will shoot next year.

Ralph Fiennes has pretty much done it all. Two-time Oscar nominee for "Schindler's List" and "The English Patient" has taken his skills into tentpole films, notably as Lord Voldemort in the "Harry Potter" franchise and less respectably as Hades in "Clash Of The Titans." He's done comedy ("In Bruges"), family films ("Nanny McPhee") and worked with a staggering array of top shelf directors including Steven Spielberg, David Cronenberg, Kathryn Bigelow, Stephen Daldry, Fernando Meirelles, Neil Jordan, Anthony Minghella and Robert Redford (which reminds us, "Quiz Show" desperately needs a proper DVD/BluRay release). Hell, he's even set to make his name as a director as his feature debut "Coriolanus" is earning strong buzz in advance of its fall release. With a couple of decades in the biz under his belt, Fiennes has tried his hand at nearly everything, but it looks like he's ready to take another stab at a Russian classic.

For the most part, the Daniel Craig-era of Bond has left behind many of the franchise's most familiar tropes; aside from Judi Dench as MI6 head honcho M, and the CIA agent Felix Leiter played by Jeffrey Wright, it's a been a fresh start: no Q, no Blofeld, no SPECTRE, no gadgets. It worked out nicely in "Casino Royale," not so well in "Quantum of Solace," and now it appears that at least one classic Ian Fleming-created character is going to appear in the latest, Sam Mendes-directed entry in the series, currently known only as "Bond 23."

'Eastern Promises' Scribe Steven Knight Rewrote Script, Gemma Arterton Nowhere To Be SeenIt's almost exactly a year since "Clash of the Titans" opened, overcoming some tough competition, a beyond-shoddy 3D conversion and terrible reviews to pick up a hugely impressive half-billion dollars worldwide. While filming has been underway for a few weeks in the U.K. on the yet-to-be-officially-titled sequel ("Wrath of the Titans" has been bandied about, but never confirmed), Warner Bros has sent out a press release to officially announce the start of principle photography, and it's confirmed a few cast members, as well as giving the first detailed description of the plot.
