With Wes Anderson and Noam Baumbach producing, and a top drawer cast coming together including names like Owen Wilson, Olivia Wilde, Brie Larson and Jason Schwartzmann, Peter Bogdanovich is set for a nice comeback with the upcoming screwball comedy "Squirrel To The Nuts." While that's cooking, though, the writer-director evidently has another project in the works that's a little more serious and will reunite him with a former collaborator.

Shawn Levy may not be one of the most popular directors in Hollywood by film nerds with access to a keyboard and a "comment" button, but that doesn’t seem to make it any tougher for the man to find work. His films are largely forgettable, but anyone who has ever come into contact with the man will attest to the fact that his enthusiasm is infectious, and you’d have to imagine that comes across in the meetings he takes. If IMDb is to be believed, Levy currently has 28 films (give or take) in development (as either a director or producer), and while a handful of those may never come to pass you wouldn’t bet against the majority.

It's been over a decade since Ingmar Bergman muse Liv Ullmann has been behind the camera with the actress-director staying relatively quiet throughout featuring only in a handful of film roles as well. Color us surprised as hell then when Ullmann revealed plans of a comeback in a recent interview in the Boston Globe noting that she'll be "doing a movie next year in Ireland as a director."

With a $30 million budget, a high-profile cast including Hugh Jackman and Ray Winstone, and music written by Guided By Voices' frontman Robert Pollard, Steven Soderbergh's 3D musical “Cleo” never faced an easy road to the big screen. The film was scheduled to shoot in spring of '09, but following Jackman's speedy departure, and then Soderbergh's own directorial issues with “Moneyball,” the project fall apart with faint hope of it being revived. The role of Cleopatra was always Catherine Zeta-Jones' though, and following our interview with Soderbergh about his musical's possible future onstage, the actress has recently echoed that intriguing possibility.

If Pixar is the animation house that can make sweet stories beat with a heart of gold, then “Coraline” animators Laika can be held responsible for the same thing – only their creations have a bit more blackened humanity to them. We’ve seen that reflected in the trailers for their upcoming stop-motion animation venture “ParaNorman,” and it’s interesting to see that they’re carrying this mentality over into their promotional materials as well.

EXCLUSIVE: While there has been much talk, a sequel to "Wanted" has been moving slowly. While the original writers were hired to pen a sequel last fall, it remained to seen how they would continue from the blood-soaked finale of the first film, a breakneck comic book actioner from director Timur Bekmambetov that grossed $341 million worldwide. With an ending featuring a bloodbath that killed the most important characters, not to mention the biggest names in the cast, a follow-up looked like a tricky proposition, but it looks like that particular story nut has been cracked.
