"Spider-Man" star Tobey Maguire has a pretty great working relationship with director Ang Lee – he caught his big break in Lee’s tremendous 1997 outing “The Ice Storm,” and, to a lesser degree, gave a fine performance in the filmmaker’s underrated Civil War-set 1999 film “Ride With The Devil” (which recently received a handsome release courtesy of the Criterion Collection). So news that Maguire was cut from Lee’s upcoming awards contender “Life of Pi,” led many to question how the pair would get along from here on out – we’re guessing things are going to be just fine.

Well, with "The Great Gatsby" pushed back to next summer, Tobey Maguire is suddenly free of any press obligations or awards season gladhanding and it looks like he's putting his hat back into the ring of making movies. Just yesterday he signed on to lead and produce "Z For Zachariah" for "Compliance" director Craig Zobel, and now, a project that first rose to the surface a couple of years ago, has some new life.

Well, here's a nice little reward for the rising director Craig Zobel. After coming to attention with his 2007 comedy "Great World Of Sound," the helmer made big waves this year with the unsettling thriller "Compliance." The film, essentially about a prank that goes to some very dark and twisted places, inspired impassioned responses from those who both loved and hated the film, and it seems that buzz has reached the ears of some pretty important folks. And as Zobel gears up a new film, he's got a pretty big name to help him make it happen.

Tobey Maguire's career in recent years resembles a guy who won the lottery. Between 2002 and 2007, the period of the three Sam Raimi-led "Spider-Man" films, the now-37-year-old actor only worked on two films in between the trilogy -- "Seabiscuit" and the supporting role in "The Good German." Post "Spider-Man 3," the actor has all of three credits on screen. The voice work he did for "Beyond All Boundaries," his severely underrated performance in Jim Sheridan's "Brothers" and "The Details," a Weinstein Company indie that was shown at Sundance in 2011 which the studio is apparently releasing this fall via their VOD Radius shingle.

Yo, you want some Jay-Z with your classic English literature? How about some blazing hip hop beatz in a Jazz Age drama? Inspired mashup or potential disaster? The jury is still out on Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby" but there is no doubt that on a visual level, this film will be nothing short of a knockout.

When it was announced that Baz Luhrmann would be directing a film version of F. Scott Fitzgerald's "The Great Gatsby," anyone who knew the Australian director's work sort of knew what to expect. They might not have guessed that he'd make the whole thing in 3D (which he has), but they knew you'd get something lavish, operatic and heavily styilized, with party scenes that finally lived up to some of Fitzgerald's descriptions.

We're still seven months away from the year's end, but with the unveiling of trailers for "Skyfall" and "The Master" yesterday, 2013 seems that little bit closer now, doesn't it? Unless the Mayans were right all along, Christmas this year will bring two major film releases in Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" -- which we caught glimpses of yesterday at Cannes -- and Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel "The Great Gatsby," both of which star Leonardo DiCaprio.

Well, they're here folks! The first two images that Warner Bros. (courtesy of Sassisam, via The Film Stage) has chosen to release from Baz Luhrmann's splashy and expensive take on F. Scott Fitzgerald's required reading list staple "The Great Gatsby" and, well, they look like an adaptation of "The Great Gatsby," albeit one with a pretty enticing cast.
