Oren Moverman
If you've followed this blog, you already know how much we dig Oren Moverman. He's the writer/director behind the duo of terrific dramas "The Messenger" and "Rampart," and while he's been brewing a few projects since (including the forthcoming Brian Wilson biopic "Love & Mercy," which he wrote and has Paul Dano and John Cusack set to star in), nothing has returned him behind the camera. Now that is set to change.

Over here in Britain, the 73rd season of “Downton Abbey” has just ended and everybody but me is losing their collective shit about how Lady Edith was abducted by Nazis while playing golf with the footman, or something. I don't know (and if I did, I wouldn't tell you: that pleasure is reserved for PBS). But while you may have to wait a while for Lady Edith to say something cutting about a gramophone, or whatever, your screens shall not be free of 'Downton' faces, notably Dan Stevens (aka Matthew Crawley), fresh from “The Fifth Estate” and slated to appear as Lancelot in “Night at the Museum 3.”

We hope you're fully rested after the long Labor Day weekend because we're flying headlong into TIFF with more reviews and coverage to come. But first, a bit of catchup on some casting you might have missed over the past few days as you savored the last long weekend of summer.

Richard Gere Suggests Terrence Malick's 'Days Of Heaven' Was Shot Twice, Ben Affleck Says Making 'To The Wonder' Was "Half-Crazy"

While at one time Terrence Malick seemed to be an enigma we would know little about, his recent prolific jaunt that sees him working with nearly every actor in Hollywood suggests that for years to come, we're going to keep getting more and more anecdotes about the man and his films, even if he remains elusive to the press. Indeed, his approach to filmmaking, which often involves tossing out the script and shooting whatever the day or moment inspires, has been either freeing, baffling or anger-inducing depending on who you ask (Christopher Plummer is not a fan). And Richard Gere, who starred in the Malick's sophomore effort, "Days of Heaven," has not been shy about his own frustrations with the film.

With an election season in full swing, and the economy still on uneven footing, perhaps there is no better time for "Arbitrage," the feature film debut of Nicholas Jarecki (the brother of Eugene and Andrew Jarecki). And pulling together a cast that includes Susan Sarandon, Brit Marling, Tim Roth, Laetitia Casta, Nate Parker and Chris Eigeman, all led by what's regarded by many to be the best performance in years by Richard Gere, this should make an impression this fall.

Robert Miller (Richard Gere) is celebrating his 60th birthday at the start of "Arbitrage," first with his family – including wife Ellen (Susan Sarandon) and daughter/chief financial officer Brooke (Brit Marling) – and then with his mistress, Julie (Laetitia Casta). As the hedge fund manager’s deep financial woes become apparent to us, one wonders if he isn’t wishing while blowing out two cakes’ worth of candles for the ability to convince every character around that he still has the Midas touch.

Last year at Sundance, “Margin Call” premiered to an unprepared audience who were greeted by a fantastic ensemble in a gripping drama that gave an insight to the 2008 financial crisis and resulting recession. That film went on to become something of a sleeper hit, and last week, picked up an Oscar nomination for Best Original Screenplay, but there's certainly much more to be said about the subject matter.

If you like going into your Richard Tiffany Gere and Christopher John "Topher" Grace (together at last!) buddy movies unspoiled, try avoiding any upcoming promotional material for "The Double," because the trailer that has debuted over at Apple has no qualms about sledgehammering its various plot turns into your consciousness with all the subtlety of a massive, unexpected coronary. The film -- which is not that Jesse Eisenberg/Richard Ayoade Dostoevsky adaptation you’ve been hearing about -- pits two of Hollywood’s dullest acting talents against each other in what appears to be a ludicrous combination of Michael Mann’s “Heat” and Sally Field’s performance in “Sybil.”

Casting News Explosion Includes Rob Riggle As Villain In '21 Jump Street,' Tim Roth In 'Arbitrage' & Much MoreJay Baruchel is joining the cast of David Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis." The rangy young actor will play a "financial whiz kid" in the film, who makes a fortuitous gamble over the course of the film's single-day narrative. Baruchel is joining a loaded cast, including Robert Pattinson, Samantha Morton, Juliette Binoche, Paul Giamatti, Mathieu Amalric and Sarah Gadon. Baruchel will next be seen in the Michael Dowse-directed "Goon," which he co-wrote with Evan Goldberg, before lending his voice to the second film in the "How To Train Your Dragon" series. Update: First tipped by C7nema and confirmed by reps for the film, Kevin Durand ("Lost," "X-Men Origins: Wolverine"), Emily Hampshire ("The Trotsky") and Patricia McKenzie have also joined the film playing Torval, Jane Melman and Kendra respectively.
