So just how messed up and bonkers will The Wachowskis' and Tom Tykwer's adaptation of David Mitchell's "Cloud Atlas" be? Well, Hugh Grant will apparently be doing a lot of "killing and raping," and as for Susan Sarandon? She tells Postmedia that her small role finds her playing "an Indian man." Huh? We're getting ahead ourselves a bit, because the good news is you'll be seeing this sooner than expected.

It’s been seven years since Steven Shainberg last directed a film, the mostly forgotten Nicole Kidman vehicle "Fur," but it appears from a new press release that he has finally locked down his next project.

Since her breakout role in 2005’s “Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang,” Michelle Monaghan has been steadily turning in solid supporting performances in everything from big-budget thrillers (“Mission Impossible III”) to more character-based dramas (“North Country”), but Hollywood still hasn’t seen her as a leading lady. That’s all set to change though, as Monaghan has signed on to appear in her biggest role yet alongside Susan Sarandon.

Alex Pettyfer, star of failed franchise starter “I Am Number Four,” and Steven Soderbergh's upcoming "Magic Mike" has found a new starring role in the first English-language film from “Heartbreaker” helmer Pascal Chaumeil. “Diamond Dogs” is based on an Alan Watt novel that is described as a crime thriller. Pettyfer will play the son of a Nevada sheriff who makes a life-changing mistake, and his father is forced to cover it up. Casting is currently underway for the father and no start date has been set.

The combination of words "Dwayne Johnson thriller" and "Susan Sarandon" isn't exactly something we would have expected, but the actress has never been one that is easily pinned down. She's a player with The Lonely Island crew, will appear in "I Hate You Dad" with Adam Sandler next summer, and is currently filming "Cloud Atlas" with The Wachowskis and Tom Tykwer. So, starring in "Snitch"? Piece of cake.

As surreal as it is to see a micro-budget Duplass Brothers film start with the stars and mountainous terrain of the Paramount logo, in many ways that contradiction and clash sets the tone for their new comedy "Jeff Who Lives at Home." Strange things are afoot in the cosmos as Jeff (played with affable confusion and large-framed, good-hearted charm by Jason Segel) is trying to keep his eyes open for what the universe might be telling him, in terms of his destiny and purpose. Also, his mom Sharon (Susan Sarandon) would like it if he could get his ass off the couch in her basement and go to Home Depot to get wood glue to fix a broken pantry door slat …

Looks like Robert Redford's "The Company You Keep" is beginning to take shape with the veteran actor-director now adding the experienced trio of Susan Sarandon, Julie Christie and Richard Jenkins to a cast that already features Shia LaBeouf, Nick Nolte and rising star Brit Marling.

Frank Langella, Jeremy Strong & Susan Sarandon Also On BoardIf a cast that includes Liev Schreiber, Liv Tyler, Frank Langella, James Marsden and Susan Sarandon doesn’t get you excited for the sci-fi influenced indie “Robot and Frank,” perhaps it’s time to check your own wiring. While all four names have had their share of misfires lately, namely Schreiber in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” and Langella and Sarandon in “Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps,” all are in high demand and frankly deliver solid performances when they are working with the right talent. Actor Jeremy Strong is an interesting newcomer who has the upcoming comedy “See Girl Run” alongside Adam Scott and Robin Tunney in the pipeline, as well as recently being cast as president Abraham Lincoln’s aide in the much anticipated Steven Spielberg-directed biopic “Lincoln.”

If you didn't see last year's "Cyrus" directed by Jay and Mark Duplass and starring Jonah Hill, do yourself a favor and catch up with it. Darkly funny and surprisingly moving it was a big leap forward for actor and directors alike and the trio are hoping to catch fire once again.

On the one hand, Adam Sandler comedies have become nothing more than big paycheck gigs for the actor to make funny voices and fart noises while someone films him doing stuff for a month and then cobbles it together later into something resembling a "movie." On the other hand, the cast of his next effort, "I Hate You, Dad," is so willfully bonkers we know we're going to end up watching it anyway.
