The adaptation of Elmore Leonard's "Freaky Deaky" boasts an impressive cast of colorful characters, including Andy Dick, Christian Slater, Billy Burke and Crispin Glover. However, action fans will spot one surprising name: Michael Jai White, who steals the film as two-timing bodyguard Donnell Lewis. After the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of the film, White spoke of his upcoming projects -- while he doesn't have the household name of some of his co-stars, he's no less busy than all of them.

"We've done about two per cent! Half a per cent? We've got five pages of story notes and chunks of story. We're holing up writing for the next three months," Adam McKay tells Empire about the development of the "Anchorman 2" script. And while there is still a lot of time for things to change, shift and evolve, it's pretty clear that he and Will Ferrell have got a general idea about where the story will go. The good news is that the period setting will remain, the even better news is that we're going to another big gang fight. No word yet if the man on fire will return.

If early reviews are any indication -- including our own -- "The Avengers" is the greatest summer blockbuster to come along in ages. And while many other on the Playlist staff are equally effusive in their praise surrounding the superhero smash-up, this writer remains cautious.

If you'd have told us a few years ago that Robert Pattinson would be walking the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival, we would've said you were crazy. But the young actor is leading a youth contingent at the fest this year (along with his main squeeze Kristen Stewart and Zac Efron) who will be bringing new energy to a lineup that also boasts a solid list of Cannes veterans.

By Friday night, the whispered rumors circling the Tribeca Film Festival weren't which premieres were worth watching or how to get into a Bombay Sapphire supper club. It was far more interesting than that. Two of the three lead Cuban actors in Lucy Mulloy's "Una Noche" went AWOL after they arrived in Miami en route to New York City. Javier Nuñez Florian and Analin de la Rúa de la Torre had landed, but never checked into their hotel with co-star Daniel Arrechagan. Mulloy found out on Friday morning.

Now that Jacques Audiard’s “Rust and Bone” has been officially announced as part of the Cannes Film Festival lineup we can start to get a little bit more excited about it (as if we weren’t excited already). If Audiard delivers here, it could mark another fine effort after the one-two punch of “A Prophet” and “The Beat That My Heart Skipped,” and we’ve got high hopes for it as a result.
