Hot on the heels of the announcement that spooky Isabelle Fuhrman will headline David Gordon Green's long-discussed but now-actually-happening "Suspiria" remake, comes word that several more actors have joined the cast. In a piece about French production company Wild Bunch's Cannes slate, ScreenDaily reports that international treasure Isabelle Huppert has joined the cast of "Suspiria" alongside Janet McTeer, Michael Nyqvist and Antje Traue. This cast is already scary good.

Now roughly six billion people have seen the thing, we can all pretty much agree that Mark Ruffalo and Scarlett Johansson were the secret weapons of superhero mega-hit "The Avengers." The former brought a wry understatement to Bruce Banner, as well as performance-capturing the most effective screen take on the Hulk yet, while Johansson banished any memories of her flat turn in "Iron Man 2" and made Black Widow steely, vulnerable, cunning and funny, often in the same breath.

Is Steve Jobs the new Truman Capote? Ever since the pioneering genius behind Apple and Pixar passed away last year, Hollywood types have been jostling to make a film about him, just as we saw multiple biopics of the "In Cold Blood" writer a half-decade or so ago, with "Capote" and "Infamous." And indeed, one of them is already in front of cameras, with the unlikely casting of Ashton Kutcher as the polo-necked techno-billionaire. But a far more prestigious project is gearing up, and it's just landed what many would think of as the perfect screenwriter for the job.

At this point, we're beginning to suspect that in order to cast her still-untitled film about the mission to kill Osama Bin Laden, Kathryn Bigelow incepted us, found out all our favorite actors and actresses, and put them in her movie. First, she cast Australian actor Jason Clarke from "Brotherhood," and "Parks & Recreation" scene stealer Chris Pratt. Then came rising star Joel Edgerton, of "Warrior" not-quite-fame, along with "Carlos" star Edgar Ramirez, 'Tinker Tailor' stand out Mark Strong, and The Playlist's Woman of the Year 2011, Jessica Chastain. And after that? The always-wonderful Jennifer Ehle, and Coach Taylor himself, "Friday Night Lights" and "Super 8" star Kyle Chandler, along with Harold Perrineau Jr, Nash Edgerton and Fares Fares.

We're about to move towards yet another act of David Gordon Green's career. The filmmaker started off with "George Washington," "All The Real Girls" and "Undertow" as a possible heir to Terrence Malick's meditative indie throne, but took a severe left-turn about five years back into abrasive stoner comedy, a shift which had both its successes ("Pineapple Express," "Eastbound & Down") and failures ("Your Highness," "The Sitter"). But for now, it seems, the director is about to try something new, and move into the horror world for his long-gestating remake of Dario Argento's horror classic "Suspiria."

Is Edgar Wright Shooting Some Of 'Ant-Man' This Year As Well As 'The World's End'?

Some directors -- very few, when it comes down to it -- are terrifyingly prolific. Steven Soderbergh, Michael Winterbottom, Woody Allen -- all of them seem to make pretty much a film a year like clockwork, and sometimes even more than that. But given scheduling issues, financing problems, and, for the very best directors, the time it takes to actually get a script right, the vast majority of filmmakers end up making a film every three or four years if they're lucky. This can make the wait between films agonizing for fans of a director.

We don't need to rehash the story of how "Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes" became the unexpected box office hit of last summer. We'll let the $480 million-plus worldwide haul for the movie speak for itself. The sequel has been brewing for a while now, with Fox locking up Andy Serkis for multiple films last year, Rupert Wyatt committed to direct and a potential 2014 release date on the horizon. And by the looks of things, Fox is ready to class up this mega sequel.

It's the mid-way point of the month, and Cannes or no Cannes, the Criterion Collection will do their traditional unveiling of their releases for three months down the line. After a banner July line-up, which included Jim Jarmusch, Whit Stillman and Aki Kaurismaki, could the beloved specialty top themselves for August? Well, perhaps not, but there's a few very pleasant surprises in the latest batch of announcement.
