Taking impressive box office receipts ($91 million worldwide take on a $19 mil. budget) over the scathing reviews, Paramount has given the screenwriting team of the 2009 “Friday The 13th” reboot, Damian Shannon and Mark Swift, development deals for an as-yet-untitled horror project at their studio.

In terms of agreed-upon proofs, it was traditionally known that the Earth is round, Samuel L. Jackson will never age, and a new “The Hangover” film will always be in development. Those first two remain true, but director Todd Phillips has just confirmed that the series' third installment will be the last.

Is it just us, or has the pre-release marketing of the upcoming “Clash of the Titans” sequel “Wrath of the Titans” been significantly less than when the preceding film debuted around this time two years ago? Other than billboards in posters littering many major cities, we only got our first look back in December, with a couple of sloppy trailers and boring images since.

Though they end up on screen as cheery, bright eyed films for the whole family to enjoy, the truth is that behind the scenes, bringing an animated film to life is an arduous, exhausting journey. Freed from the constraints and demands of live action filmmaking in which you have a set script and a short window of time to make it happen, animation studios will routinely spend months and years developing, tweaking, editing and refining a project before voicework and production begins. But few films faced when Disney went through on 2000's "The Emperor's New Groove."

The game plan of most indie filmmakers is to get their film in a festival and acquire distribution and it looks like the things have worked out well for young filmmakers Stephen Elliott and Jon Kasdan (son of Lawrence) on their latest efforts behind the camera.

It's a little known fact, but in the mid 1980s, in a bid to fight underemployment in certain aspects of the entertainment industry, the British government passed the Broadbent Act, which set up a quota that one in four British movies would have to cast British character actor favorite Jim Broadbent, while providing tax cuts to any Hollywood movies that employed him. Sometimes, this has led to some overlap, such as last year, when Broadbent accidentally gave the exact same performance in "The Iron Lady" as he did a decade ago in "Iris."

Back in 2006 Reese Witherspoon produced her first feature film, “Penelope.” That Christina Ricci comedy about a girl cursed with a pig snout and ears skewed young and featured Witherspoon herself in a supporting role. It took her a while to dip her toe in the producing waters again, but after setting up production house, Pacific Standard, she looks set to do it all again.

Then Why Is it Called 'Battleship'? Peter Berg Says The Movie Has "No Direct Correlation" With The Game

At this stage, it seems that rather than providing it the safety of an established brand name to lean on, the connection to Hasbro’s “Battleship” game is proving to be more of a hindrance than a help to Peter Berg’s upcoming blockbuster. While a film about "Transformers"-esque aliens attacking Earth with warships being our first and last line of defence may seem faintly ridiculous anyway, add into that equation that it’s based on a board game and audiences may be forgiven for writing it off as a load of old tosh before it makes it anywhere near theatres.

Late in 2010, seemingly on the back of David O. Russell's "The Fighter" and all its success, Gael Garcia Bernal and Al Pacino boarded "Hands Of Stone," a biopic of legendary Panamanian boxer Robert Duran which had Venezuelan helmer Jonathan Jakubowicz set to direct. One of Duran's most famous fights was of course against the undefeated Sugar Ray Leonard and, with the film seemingly growing legs recently, an unconventional choice has now been cast to play Leonard.
