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.

You'd think The Wachowskis would have gotten their epic sci-fi trilogy kicks out of their system with "The Matrix" but evidently not -- the duo are gearing up "Jupiter Ascending," a planned kickstarter to a trilogy that is set in a universe where human beings are not the most evolved forms of intelligent life. With things reportedly due to get underway this fall, and on the back of Mila Kunis joining the flick, Channing Tatum has confirmed with MTV his own involvement in the ambitious project.

After a busy week, you'll excuse Rooney Mara's agents if they turn off their cell phones and have a much earned nap. In the last few days the actress has signed on to replace Carey Mulligan in Spike Jonze's upcoming film, and taken a lead role in the upcoming adaptation of Colm Toibin's "Brooklyn." And now to close off the week, she's landed another gig that will see her star opposite two of our favorite actors.

Steven Soderbergh's "The Bitter Pill" is now rolling in front of cameras and it looks like the girl with the dragon tattoo is now the girl with a new haircut (or wig). Rooney Mara has been snapped walking around the New York City set with some new brunette-ish locks, and combined with a frumpy trench coat, it's a far cry from her previous Hot Topic look.

With the dude from Neon Indian popping up in a recent set photo, and Malick having lensed indie friendly folks like Arcade Fire, Iron & Wine and Fleet Foxes last year during pre-production at Austin City Limits, it seemed like his upcoming "Lawless" was shaping up to be some kind of "The Tree Of Life: Pitchfork Edition." But a fascinating, oddball development makes this movie continue to be a total headscratcher.

Vanity Fair loves the ladies. For their annual Hollywood issue the magazine has once again gone with hot young things for their cover, making it three straight years the boys have left off from strutting their stuff (excluding the 2009 issue which for some reason had Barack Obama fronting the issue). But also as usual, it's hard to argue with their choices for the most part with Rooney Mara, Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain and Jennifer Lawrence selected for the cover.
