Bleeding Cool recently had a chance to check in via remote videoconference with Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, in anticipation of "The Avengers" U.K. release (over there it's called "Avengers Assemble," presumably to distance it from the beloved British television series). The subject of "Ant-Man" came up, the long developing project that screenwriters Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish have been toiling on for the past couple of years. Turns out it might be closer to actually getting made than many of us have assumed.

Yes, it’s been a while since Whit Stillman released a film. But that story has already been done to death. The important fact is that Stillman is back, rejuvenated, and from the sound of our recent interview, looking to get back in the saddle again soon.

It's not a tumor! In case you missed it this weekend because you were out living life, it was April Fool's Day on Sunday. And in a sea of mostly lame April Fool's Day jokes from the movie world (this /Film writer sums it up well), we tip our caps to The Criterion Collection. Their gag this year? A fake announcement that Ivan Reitman's 1990 comedy "Kindergarten Cop" starring Arnold Schwarzenegger would soon be joining their prestigious DVD collection on July 24th of this year.

Not that it will stop Adam Sandler from continuing to make increasingly shitacular movies, but it is kind of nice to finally see his cinematic abominations get recognized for the truly awful pieces of filmmaking they are.

So, a dude in a red shirt banging on a picnic table, a mohawked beer drinking dude in a lawn chair rocking out, a football player running in place as flames from a BBQ shoot upward and a woman with giant boobs gyrating orgasmically on a lawn. We're pretty sure we've been to a party like this in Williamsburg once....

"Not to be preachy about it, but discipline is everything for a working writer, at least for this one. I can’t just wander around fields of flowers or sit brooding in coffee houses waiting for the muse to land on my shoulder and whisper in my ear.  That would nice, but it ain’t gonna happen. I treat writing like a factory job – the whistle blows and I’m at work. This thing always comes down to someone sitting down with some kind of writing instrument and getting it done," author and screenwriter Don Winslow told us recently. And he's not kidding around. That focus and drive has allowed Winslow to write 16 books over the past two decades or so, including "Satori" (hitting bookstores in paperback last week) and his upcoming "Savages" prequel "The Kings Of Cool." And this doesn't even include the television work or the brewing movie adaptations he has in development. And though he commits to a strong worth ethic, it's never at the mercy of challenging himself as a writer or compromising his own standards.

Robert Luketic doesn't seem to inspire as much vitriol from fans that the likes of McG or Shawn Levy seem to, but looking at his back-catalogue his cinematic sins aren't inconsiderable. Maybe it's down to his first film, the really rather fun "Legally Blonde," but since then he's made "Win a Date With Tad Hamilton!," "Monster in Law," "21" (which this writer must admit to having a soft spot for), and his latest two films have been the irredeemable "The Ugly Truth" and "Killers," both starring Katherine Heigl.

While Mira Nair has enjoyed some success over the years for her films, acclaim has usually tended to gather around films set in her native India rather than her more mainstream efforts. "Vanity Fair," "Amelia," and even her segment in "New York, I Love You" have all, to one extent or another, fallen flat. Her next feature may be an adaptation of Mohsin Hamid's (mostly) New York-set novel "The Reluctant Fundamentalist", but we're really pretty intrigued to see how this one will play out.
