One of the more interesting stories in the world of animation last year was the very public collapse of the Henry Selick's newest movie he was working on for Disney, something that was supposed to be the beginning of a very long and fruitful relationship for the "Nightmare Before Christmas" director and the studio. But, alas, the film that was at one point designed to be Pixar's first stop motion feature, completely fell apart after Selick continued to lock horns with the Pixar Brain Trust (whose story-comes-first mandate ruffled Selick) and Disney execs over the tone of the movie and its lack of narrative clarity. After building the animators a new studio and paying for a large chunk of the production budget, the project formerly known as "Shademaker" was indefinitely canceled Now comes word that the movie, now entitled "The Shadow King," is up and running again, this time produced by "Beasts of the Southern Wild" principle Josh Penn, with funding by K5 International.

It's getting on two years since Lars Von Trier made headlines around the world with his ill-advised comments at the Cannes Film Festival, while promoting his film 'Melancholia," comments which saw Von Trier deemed 'persona non grata' at the festival in future. Von Trier's been relatively quiet ever since (even swearing off press altogether), but that's surely about to change, with his two-part new film "Nymphomaniac" on the way before the year is out.

According to Wikipedia, in the videogame series "Hitman," the nameless Agent 47 is marked by the following characteristics: 47 is an introverted character who almost always speaks without emotion in a calm, formal manner (with what might be considered a muted or blunt affect). His lack of empathy, emotion or excitement while committing acts of murder are defining characteristics of the character. Basically, he's an unfeeling, expressionless drone. So who better than Paul Walker to take on the character?

As we all know, if Sean Bean is in a movie, the odds that his character will end up dying are a lot higher than most. But we like the guy, so we hope his appearance in this potential franchise starter won't be his last.
