Well, depending on your disposition (and the amount of chemicals you've ingested today), you'll either find the trailer for "Song for Marion" to be hopelessly charming or an absolute disaster that makes you want to cover yourself in bread crumbs and be slowly devoured by a flock of hungry seagulls. You'll have to wait a little bit for our Toronto International Film Festival review (the film closes the festival in ten days or so, but hey, the trailer is worth a watch at least. Starring Vanessa Redgrave, Christopher Eccleston, Terence Stamp, and the almost painfully adorable Gemma Arterton, it's a movie about an old folks choir. Guh.

About a year ago, we pegged Peter Serafinowicz as one of the music video directors we expected to make a breakthrough into features in the immediate future. The comic actor, perhaps best known for voicing Darth Maul in "Star Wars," had made a couple of excellent videos for Hot Chip and Alex Metric. And indeed, he's now gearing up for his directorial debut, in which he'll star as his comic creation Brian Butterfield.

Back in July, after taking a look at the script for Britflick "Song for Marion" which, at the time, was just about to start shooting with stars Terence Stamp, Vanessa Redgrave and Gemma Arterton, we wrote "If we were Harvey Weinstein we’d be snapping up the rights immediately; undoubtedly reminiscent of films like 'Brassed Off,' 'The Full Monty' and 'Calendar Girls,' with a little Mike Leigh thrown in, it’s rather lovely, and in places very funny, but Williams also brings emotion that’s perhaps more raw than similar films to the table. Mark our words, given the giant success of the choir-based 'Glee,' it’s got all the makings of a major sleeper hit, and Stamp has the kind of role that stinks of Oscar."

Formerly a potential project for the every busy Guillermo Del Toro to direct, New Line's re-imagined "Peter Pan" film really started moving forward when "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1" animation wizard Ben Hibon moved into the director's chair, and kicked into life when it added Aaron Eckhart, Anna Sophia Robb and Sean Bean to its cast. Well that already impressive cast just received a delightful addition to its already superb ensemble

Also Says That Crime Film 'The Iceman' & James Franco's 'As I Lay Dying' Aren't Happening Any Time Soon We have to confess, when considering the possibilities as to who might end up playing villain General Zod in Zack Snyder's Superman reboot "Man of Steel," Michael Shannon was never on our list. Not that he's not a fine actor -- he's one of the finest out there right now, one who goes from strength to strength with seemingly every performance. And not that he's resisted studio fare in the past -- indeed, he'll be playing a villain in the Joseph Gordon-Levitt vehicle "Premium Rush" at the start of next year. It's more that Shannon's particular brand of bug-eyed crazy is so very different from the steely fascism embodied by Terence Stamp in the character's last big-screen appearance in "Superman II."

Christopher Eccleston And Anne Reid Also On BoardHe's virtually unknown in the U.S, but Paul Andrew Williams has been one of the rising stars of the British film industry for a few years now. His 2006 debut, the gritty, excellent drama "London To Brighton," won him a BAFTA nomination and several newcomer awards (the film received a very brief U.S. release in 2008), and he seemed like one of the brightest talents around. He took a slight misstep with his next two projects, the horror films "The Cottage" and "Cherry Tree Lane," but he looks to be getting firmly back on track with his fourth film, which starts filming ten days from now, and has just landed an impressive cast.

Friday night at the San Francisco International Film Festival, actor Terence Stamp (“The Adjustment Bureau,” “Valkyrie”) was presented with the Peter J. Owens award for excellence in acting. To celebrate the award, Stamp appeared on stage with film critic Elvis Mitchell to tell stories of a decades-long career that saw him rise to the level of leading man, then experience a period as a bit part player, and then journey back into the spotlight. Following the conversation was a screening of the rarely shown “Toby Dammit,” the Stamp-starring and Federico Fellini-directed segment of the 1968 Edgar Allen Poe adaptation collection called “Spirits of the Dead.”
