Plus New Photos Of 'The Descendants' & Luc Besson's 'The Lady'Michael Bay's loss is the indie world's gain. Megan Fox may no longer be part of the "Transformers" franchise, but her next big screen role will be in Jennifer Westfeldt's "Friends With Kids," an ensemble indie that stars Adam Scott, Jennifer Westfeldt, Jon Hamm, Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Chris O'Dowd and Edward Burns. Not too shabby and it pays to have famous friends.

Ethan Jamieson & Tara Macken Cast As District 4 PlayersWhile most of the "Hunger Games" casting so far has centered around the smaller names that populate the various Districts in the game (please see the most recent casting of Ethan Jamieson and Tara Macken), it seems that the filmmakers are not done headhunting for big names to join the franchise-starting film and now three more stars are being tossed into the rumor mill.

Hank Azaria, Will Sasso, Johnny Knoxville Also MentionedIt's now four years since the last film from one-time comedy titans The Farrelly Brothers. The duo dominated the genre in the 1990s, knocking out three bona-fide classics, "Dumb & Dumber," "Kingpin" and "There's Something About Mary," in quick succession, but their efforts in the last decade ranged from the genial ("Stuck On You," "Fever Pitch") to the unwatchable ("Shallow Hal," "The Heartbreak Kid"). Their latest project, the Owen Wilson/Jason Sudeikis marital comedy "Hall Pass," hits theaters on Friday (and by all accounts, isn't anywhere near a comeback), which finally clears the way for their longtime passion project: "The Three Stooges."

Calls Woody Harrelson's Performance "Stone Cold, Insane"One of the many films that featured in our recently posted Most Anticipated piece was the reuniting of director Oren Moverman with his "The Messenger" stars Ben Foster and Woody Harrelson for the cop drama "Rampart" which shot late last year. Unfortunately, word from Foster now predicts a 2012 unveiling for the film rather than later this year, possibly lining the team up for a return to Sundance.
