James Franco continues to work a mile-a-minute, and "The Adderall Diaries" is gearing up. Coming aboard the project are Amber Heard, Ed Harris, Christian Slater, Cynthia Nixon and Jim Parrack, in the movie based on Stephen Elliot's memoir about "a young man navigating the unstable terrain of truth and identity." Robert Redford is executive producing with Pamela Romanowsky behind the camera. [Variety]

Kristen Wiig has joined Zach Galifianakis and Owen Wilson in the project formerly known as "Loomis Fargo." Jared Hess ("Napoleon Dynamite," "Nacho Libre") directs this one that's "based on the true story of four dim-witted Southerners who pulled off one of the biggest heists in American history, robbing almost $20 million from a Loomis Fargo armored truck. Wiig will play the workplace crush of Galifianakis, an unhappy armored car driver. Using her feminine wiles, she gets him to join her and her accomplices in their plan to rob a bank vault, but has no plans to link up with him once the deed is done." Filming starts in July. [THR]

Djimon Hounsou and Alexis Knapp have joined the un-Google-able "One." The adventure movie "is set in a world after a virus has wiped out 99% of humanity, leaving those who have survived divided into racial groups all fighting for a cure. Knapp will portray a woman who’s captured and sold to a medical research facility, where it becomes evident that she is immune to the virus." Murali Thalluri wrote the script and will direct the picture that will shoot later this year. [Variety]

Lastly, Nicolas Cage has joined yet another movie, this time the political drama "The Runner." Austin Stark will make his directorial debut with this one, set in the aftermath of the tragic 2010 BP oil spill, following Colin Price, an idealistic but flawed New Orleans congressman who is forced to confront his dysfunctional life after his career is destroyed in a sex scandal. Production begins next month in New Orleans.
