Aside from the rightfully lauded performances by Michelle Williams and Kenneth Branagh, the most impressive aspect of “My Week with Marilyn” was just how quick it took for the film to disappear from memory. A whispy vanilla meringue of a picture, those over at Fox 2000 have nonetheless spotted gold in its director Simon Curtis, and have set him up with a new romantic comedy.

If you’re a child of the ‘90s, perhaps you hold some nostalgia for the late Friday nights you may have spent watching T.G.I.F. on ABC, a touchstone for teen-friendly programming that catered to its audiences with titles like “Full House,” “Boy Meets World,” “Family Matters,” and so many more. In a roster of shows that mixed comedy ocasionally with real life "issues," “Sabrina The Teenage Witch” always seemed a touch out of place. Based on the popular Archie Comics of the same name from the ‘60s, the show lasted seven seasons off the charm of Melissa Joan Hart and the comedic presence of Caroline Rhea and Beth Broderick, yet stood out as a series steeped in fantasy and lore that was typically absent from the “T.G.I.F.” lineup.

While most of the film community’s attention is turned towards the recent news that Will Ferrell and Adam McKay are assembling the News Channel 4 team all over again for an “Anchorman” sequel, on a quieter front it comes as no surprise that both have several films in various stages of development over at their banner Gary Sanchez Productions. One of those is a reteaming of “The Other Guys” co-stars Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg in the previously titled “Turkey Bowl,” but now that film is receiving a whole new take from the men who took us on a trip with their “Hot Tub Time Machine.”

While the decade-long drought between feature films will soon end as Roman Coppola continues his work in post on "A Glimpse Inside The Mind Of Charlie Swan III" -- his sophomore effort following 2001's "CQ" -- he certainly hasn't been lacking in things to do. He's been writing, producing and helming second unit on films for Wes Anderson, Sofia Coppola and Francis Ford Coppola, and as part of The Directors Bureau has been making music videos and commercials. But this is easily the oddest entry of the bunch.

Even without his longtime muse Penelope Cruz, Pedro Almodovar didn't miss a beat with actress Elena Anaya as his female lead in the Frankenstein-style tale "The Skin I Live In." The actress shined opposite a revived Antonio Banderas in an excellent role that should give her career a nice boost.

Whose Crazy Has The Most Truth? Joe Eszterhas & Mel Gibson Battle Spills Online With Anti-Semitic Slurs Leading The Charge

Yesterday afternoon, it was reported that Mel Gibson's Jewish epic about Maccabee, the man who led a Jewish revolt against the Greek-Syrian armies that conquered Judea in the second century B.C., was put on hold at Warner Bros. because the script by Joe Eszterhas ("Basic Instinct," "Jade") wasn't working. And then things got ugly. The Wrap posted a scathing nine-page letter the screenwriter had privately sent Gibson, and it's an eye-melting read, giving a first-hand account of the actor/director's rage and, more troublingly, his apparent unwavering anti-Semitism. Deadline got in the game with a statement from Gibson that calmly denied the charges. So it's Eszterhas vs. Gibson, and both stories are wildly different, and we'd reckon as these things usually go, the truth stands somewhere in the middle. So let's break it down...

We have to admit, we toyed around with alternate headlines, and nearly went with: "Poster For 'Django' Is 'Unchained'!" But at any rate, here we are, and let the drooling begin as the Spanish poster for Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" has been unveiled with a pretty big and not too surprising nod to the classic western one sheets of yore, all with a little contemporary minimalist modern design sauce thrown in the mix.
