Steve McQueen has quite an abundance of talent at his disposal for "Twelve Years A Slave" but now has more two more additions in TV staple Alfre Woodard and newcomer Lupita Nyong'o. Woodard will play a former slave who has risen through the caste system while Nyong'o plays the object of both affection and cruelty of Master Epps, to be played by Michael Fassbender. The film, of course, stars Chiwetel Ejiofor as Solomon Northup, a free black man who is tricked into slavery and faces a grueling life under several owners. Brad Pitt, Scoot McNairy, Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Giamatti, Paul Dano, Sarah Paulson, Garrett Dillahunt, Ruth Negga and Adepero Oduye all co-star in the John Ridley co-scripted tale. Most anticipated for 2013? It's up there, no doubt. [THR]

Now this is a strange, strange story. You may remember Matteo Garrone’s 2009 film “Gomorrah.” The title is a play on words which crosses the Biblical city of Gomorrah and the name of the Neopolitan mafia ‘Camorra’, and was a damning indictment of the activities of the Camorra and the often unexpected areas their illegal activities have stretched to and influenced. On the surface it’s a powerful and brave film which dares to take on the Camorra – Roberto Saviano, whose non-fiction book the film was based on, had already been forced to flee into police protection.

There are a handful of things we can expect from every 007 movie: a new credit sequence song, a bevy of beautiful women, a worldly adventure in expensive-looking locales and heavy marketing tie-ins. The Heineken promotion for "Skyfall" has already drawn some light and somewhat misguided controversy, but of course it doesn't end there.

So what exactly is the villain going to be in Darren Aronofsky's "Noah"? A talking raincloud? The guy at the lumber yard who jacks up his prices with the storm of all time on the way? A rival ark builder? Your guess is as good as ours, but it seems the director has found his man.
