After a difficult, fractured production that left many wondering if "Men In Black III" was gearing up to be a "Heaven's Gate"-style summer disaster, it seems everyone came through and put something together for the third and final chapter in the series. Or is it? With Sony rebooting "The Amazing Spider-Man" only five years after Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire's "Spider-Man 3" it's clear that in this day of do-overs and remakes, time is hardly an issue. And while this may be the last swing at the alien piñata for Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones, the "Men In Black" franchise might still have a new life beyond the upcoming movie.

As “Twilight” author Stephanie Meyer continues to build upon her Stephen King-like empire in the Young Adult world, with the supposedly adult-minded sci-fi novel “The Host” already set to make it to the big screen next March, she now looks to extended her notoriety by bringing other YA-friendly literature adaptation to the multiplex.

The sheer thought of animated production house Laika making a new feature should excite most any cinephile or fan of animation, especially with their track record that includes “Coraline” and the upcoming and equally tantalizing "ParaNorman," the horror-themed story of a young boy who looks to save his town from an ages-old curse. We’ve already seen a few trailers for that project, we know composer extraordinaire Jon Brion will be handling soundtrack duties, and frankly we’re pretty excited.

It seems that this year at the Cannes Film Festival, it's going to be the young blood earning the attention of the paparazzi. Oh sure, Brad Pitt will be there, but how many pictures of Brad Pitt on the red carpet do you need? Snap-happy cameramen will surely be saving their zoom lenses for Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Zac Efron who will all be featuring in films unspooling at the Palais. And that's a sentence we thought we'd never actually type.

After directing one of the biggest surprises both commericially and critically last summer in "Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes," Rupert Wyatt hasn't rushed into his next gig. Oh sure, there is the inevitable 'Apes' sequel which he is slated to direct, but with Andy Serkis busy on Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit" -- not only starring, but doing second unit work as well -- Fox will have to wait until he returns from the Shire. Until then, Warner Bros. has set up Wyatt with the spy thriller "Londongrad" and now he's got another hot project that is sure to start a bidding war.

David O. Russell isn't straying too far from his recent tried and true collaborations. Reports surfaced earlier this year that Christian Bale and his "Fighter" director would be re-teaming again for a Black List script called, "American Bullshit." Written by Eric Warren Singer ("The International"), and a project that Ben Affleck was eyeing in January, it appears that not only is Bale in talks to star, but Russell's most-current lead Bradley Cooper (he stars in "The Silver Linings Playbook") is on board as well.
