While Nicolas Winding Refn's "noir thriller Drive" threatens to be one of the most talked about films of the 2011 Cannes Film Festival, especially considering its A-list cast that includes Ryan Gosling, Carey Mulligan, Albert Brooks, Oscar Isaac, Christina Hendricks and "Breaking Bad" star Bryan Cranston to name a few, the film has not screened so far, nor has the cast assembled to talk about it yet.

After what seems like years and years, it appears that we're finally on the verge of something that's been in the works for a while: the arrival of Ryan Gosling as a fully fledged, honest-to-god movie star. The actor might have captured teen hearts in "The Notebook" and picked up an Oscar nomination for his astonishing performance in "Half Nelson," but he's spent the past half-decade since firmly avoiding tentpoles, landing mostly in indie fare like "Lars and the Real Girl" and the wonderful "Blue Valentine," with only one studio outing, the immediately forgotten Anthony Hopkins thriller "Fracture," in the last seven years.

Considering the spate of remakes and reboots, it takes a real feat to rouse our interest in one. Even with a promising creative team involved, a new version can sometimes just end up feeling redundant with many projects -- some simply don't need to be remade. But at the same time, we're not against the idea in principle -- something like "Ocean's Eleven," "Let Me In" or "The Thing" prove that, with a distinct enough spin, or with source material that left room for improvement, it's not necessarily an evil.

There is no doubt that "Tales From The Gangster Squad" is very, very high on the priority list at Warner Bros. With names like Darren Aronofsky, Paul Greengrass, Francis Lawrence, Martin Campbell, Greg Berlanti, Scott Cooper and Jose Padilha all being tossed around at various points to direct the film, "Zombieland" helmer Ruben Fleischer landed the gig late last year. But WB isn't done yet trying to lure top talent to their crimeland pic.
