We presume Robert Rodriguez didn't keep him waiting around for the script (ZING). Just over a week since it was reported that Rodriguez wanted Mel Gibson for a role in "Machete Kills," it looks like he got him.

Lionsgate are making sure they aren't caught with their pants down when "The Hunger Games" series inevitably comes to an end. Even though the first film is still in theaters, they aren't wasting any time in making sure they have another big hit franchise to keep the blockbuster money train going once "Mockingjay" brings the adventures of Katniss to a close. And the answer to Suzanne Collins seems to be Patrick Ness, and Lionsgate are hoping his "Chaos Walking" series of books can work the same magic. In order to attract the best talent possible to the material, they're picked a pretty brilliant screenwriter to get the ball rolling.

If the graphic violence, giant rats, and seizure-inducing imagery of “Cosmopolis” dissuaded you from the film's otherwise compelling look at sex and politics, then perhaps Robert Pattinson's period drama “Bel Ami” is more up your alley. A new clip and soundtrack details have hit the web, and they both certainly share some similarities, believe it or not.

While Jason Statham had better things to do than join the amped up "Fast & Furious" franchise, we have to say this bit of casting is a bit more inspired anyway.

Sean Penn doesn't do comedy. Wait, let's rephrase that...Sean Penn doesn't do comedy often. Of course, there's "Fast Times At Ridgemont High," and he's lent his incredible talents to comic vehicles only a handful of times in such films as "We're No Angels," "What Just Happened" and "Shanghai Surprise." But he's not above doing funny stuff. In fact, you may recall for that for the longest time he was attached/linked to an earlier incarnation of The Farrelly Brothers' "The Three Stooges" (and he likely dodged a bullet) and he's also guested on Zach Galifianakis' "Between Two Ferns" (watch below). But a role in a remake of a classic film with Ben Stiller? Yeah, we didn't see this one coming either.

So, will the romance of the open road, and a whole other America waiting in the distance in "On The Road" inspire young people everywhere to journey across this land? Or at the very least get them to read Jack Kerouac's book? That remains to be seen, but the spirit of the beats is alive in the upcoming film from Walter Salles.
