Don Peyote Anne Hathaway
Well, we'll give co-writer/director Dan Fogler credit for this: he certainly knows how to work a Rolodex. Ordinarily, we probably wouldn't pay a movie titled "Don Peyote" much mind, but when it manages to rope in a rather oddball assortment of people for cameo roles, well, we gave more time out of day than we otherwise would have.

The Double, Jesse Eisenberg, Mia Wasikoswka
On Saturday at the Toronto International Film Festival, the newest film from writer/director Richard Ayoade (as opposed to the newest film from actor Richard Ayoade who was in the abysmal Ben Stiller comedy "The Watch") premieres. Based on the Fyodor Dostoyevsky novella "The Double," it stars Jesse Eisenberg who is presumably driven insane by the appearance of an eerie doppelganger. And wouldn't you know it, there's a debut trailer too (courtesy of The Guardian)?

Even his detractors must admit that there's a glorious unpredictability in watching the career of Jonathan Demme. In the last decade alone, he's directed two remakes of 1960s classics, documentaries on Neil Young, Haitian activist Jean Dominique and former President Jimmy Carter, indie drama "Rachel Getting Married," episodes of TV series "A Gifted Man" and "Enlightened," and, on the way, an animated adaptation of Dave Eggers' "Zeitoun" and Stephen King time-travel thriller "11/22/63." But his next film? It's something even more unexpected.
