With each new step into his increasingly prolific filmic output, the enigma of Terrence Malick has slowly begun to crack, each new tidbit wonderfully at odds with the director's built-up legend. Ben Stiller's “Zoolander” has contributed to perhaps the most delightful account. The story goes that Malick likes to unwind by watching it regularly, and that Stiller even once sent him a video message in character for the helmer's birthday. But now that rumor appears to be true, as the filmmaker has selected the film alongside other personal favorites for an upcoming Oklahoma film festival.

When it opened at the Royal Court Theatre in London in 2010, "Posh" helped to give a real boost to the careers of its young cast, with actors including Kit Harington ("Game Of Thrones"), Joshua McGuire ("The Hour"), Tom Mison (the upcoming "Sleepy Hollow" TV series) and David Dawson ("Luther") all having gone on to great things after the fact. "An Education" director Lone Scherfig signed on to a film adaptation recently, and it looks like we might be seeing a movie cast that's just as broad in talent, with a few rising names, and one massive one, apparently in various stages of talks to come on board.

The last we heard about Steven Spielberg's potential Moses movie "Gods And Kings" was well over a year ago, when word circulated that he might be eyeing a start date this spring. But obviously, a lot of things have happened since then. The director's "Robopocalypse" started moving to follow "Lincoln" until he delayed it, essentially freeing up his summer, part of which he'll spend as the Cannes Film Festival as the jury president, while also looking over newly tasked director Colin Trevorrow's work on "Jurassic Park IV." And oh yeah, he's also developing Stanley Kubrick's lost "Napolean" project as a TV miniseries on top of the many other big and small screen efforts he has his hands in. And it appears that he won't be parting the Red Sea any more.

After flopping pretty hard last fall with the ambitious, new age-y, sci-fi, one-actor-multiple-roles experiment "Cloud Atlas," Warner Bros. are feeling a lot more confident about The Wachowskis next genre project. In fact, they're banking summer 2014 on it.

"Reality" filmmaker Matteo Garrone's follow-up to the 2008 critically acclaimed crime drama "Gomorrah," hits the Angelika theater in New York City tomorrow, March 15th. Centering on a man who becomes obsessed with starring on "Big Brother," to the point of driving himself into isolation and detaching himself from, well, reality, the film stars Claudia Gerini, Aniello Arena and Loredana Simioli. "Reality" premiered at last year's Cannes International Film Festival before finding distribution with Oscilloscope Laboratories.

When rapper/entrepreneur Jay-Z was reported to be "scoring" Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby" the first thing we were asked was, why didn't we report this? Well, for one, we're sticklers for language. You wouldn't say Diablo Cody wrote "Evil Dead" if she just did a dialogue pass on it, right? Well, there's that and there's the fact that longtime Luhrmann composer Craig Armstrong was listed as the composer for the movie from the very first (and all subsequent) trailers. So while it sounded nice, it likely wasn't quite right, but of course WB wouldn't comment, so we had to wait. (But yes, Jay-Z and Kanye West's "No Church In The Wild" features in the trailers).

Colin Trevorrow, Jurassic Park 4
It seems pretty cute to think about the time when "Safety Not Guaranteed" helmer Colin Trevorrow was rumored to direct "Star Wars: Episode 7," but another mammoth sequel is now in his lap, with fanboy expectations that will certainly be very high.
