If you removed Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger from the equation, the cast lining up for "The Tomb" seems like something that would fit a straight-to-DVD potboiler, instead of a teamup between two aging action icons. Either way, "The Tomb" is gonna be...weird.

Two guys who recently had big high profile projects fall apart at Warner Bros. may be teaming for another big blockbuster the studio is brewing.

Robert Downey Jr. and David Dobkin are two faves down on the Warner Bros. lot. Of course, the former is the man who has turned "Sherlock Holmes" into a mega franchise and the latter had a huge hit for their New Line arm with "Wedding Crashers," also had a hit with "Fred Claus" and after a rough patch, is still developing "Arthur & Lancelot" under their roof. So why not pair those two together?

Oh, Taylor Lautner. Poised to be the next big hot new thing, his solo action adventure outing "Abduction" flopped at the box office, his starring role in "Stretch Armstrong" was scuttled and that movie he's supposed to do with Gus Van Sant (no, really) seems to be waiting to happen. So what is Jacob supposed to do now. How about comedy?

Morgan Spurlock doesn't sleep it seems. With his Comic Con doc heading into theaters, the busy documentarian has a new show premiring on Sky Atlantic titled "New Brittania" about the differences between Brits and Americans, and later this month, he's unveiling yet another documentary, "Mansome." And while we had little idea that this was getting made, not only is it done, it's set to premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival.

With the film running full throttle in front of cameras, and anticipation racing at a feverishly high pitch, it seems the latest James Bond adventure "Skyfall" is done adding girls for Daniel Craig to get frisky with.

One film that is quietly winning over the members of the Playlist as we all catch up with it is Sarah Polley's romantic drama "Take This Waltz." It already won over our man at TIFF James Rocchi who called it "a modernist version of a late '60s or early '70s relationship film" that delivers "a knockout punch." And now, a new trailer has arrived offering another strong and compelling look at the film.

So, what happens when you happen to be the writer who penned the most anticipated movie of the summer/year? Everyone forgets you also wrote "The Darkest Hour" and gives you a big shiny new franchise to play with. That's what's happening with Jon Spaihts, the dude who wrote the initial draft of "Prometheus" that got Ridley Scott all hot and bothered before Damon Lindelof came on and did his rewrite magic.

There is probably no musician both as famous and as mercurial and engimatic as Bob Dylan, which ironically has made his life and work a popular source of inspiration for movies. Of course, Todd Haynes attempted to encapsulate as many of the fragments of Dylan's life as he could in "I'm Not There" with multiple actors portraying the man, and a bevy of musicians covering his tunes. But there is still so much more to tell and explore, and now, a fascinating new project will take on the musican from an entirely different angle altogether.

Among the many issues that faced "Live Free Or Die Hard" besides the PG-13 rating the on-no-the-internetz plot, it lacked a villain on the scale of Alan Rickman, Jeremy Irons or even William Sadler. And we hope this announcement doesn't mean more of the same.
