A legend, a hipster multi-hyphenate, and a rising star and filmmaker all coming together? Could be something special or...something else, but "Terri" director Azazel Jacobs is certainly raising the bar for his next effort.

It's only a matter of time before the talented and (very) lovely "True Blood" star Deborah Ann Woll begins to break out beyond the now silly HBO show (not that it was Shakespeare to begin with -- but how many more subplots can it add?). This summer she had a very nice minor, but important turn in the excellent, but unfortunately ignored "Ruby Sparks" and in case you forgot, she was in early talks for Paul Thomas Anderson's "The Master" for the role of Elizabeth before the movie was dumped by Universal, in its first incarnation. But after a number of indies that did her talents no favors ("Catch .44," the recently released "Someday This Pain Will Be Useful To You") she's now landed a role opposite Zac Efron that will hopefully boost her profile.

Jodie Foster tends to take a measured approach when deciding on her roles in front of and behind the camera, which tends to make her choices pretty interesting. And that's no less true for what is gearing up to be her next feature effort.

What is there left to say about "The Man with the Iron Fists"? It's directed by Wu-Tang Clan member RZA, he directed it and co-wrote the script with Eli Roth and it's a goddamn kung-fu movie. Russell Crowe plays the villain and the movie has a pretty awesome soundtrack. If you don't have even a little bit of excitement in your heart for this we don't know what to tell you.

Packing up the camper and hitting the road is a popular vacation choice for many, but never has it been depicted with such a gleeful streak of dark comedy as it is in Ben Wheatley's "Sightseers." The director of "Kill List" and "Down Terrace" continues his wicked pace with another new film headed to theaters, and it has four cheeky posters to give you taste of what's to come.

"I light a room and let the people inhabit it, as opposed to lighting the people," cinematographer Harris Savides told the Village Voice in 2004. "It's more organic. You want to protect the people you're working with, and there's a constant battle between the best light for their face and the best light for the story. You don't want to get to the point where the audience notices the light."

After earning the attention of the Academy with his first two features, “Capote” and “Moneyball,” you wouldn’t bet against Bennett Miller’s next feature “Foxcatcher” being in line for more awards when it surfaces, especially given the cast that he’s beginning to line up. Already on board are Mark Ruffalo, Steve Carell, Sienna Miller and Channing Tatum, and they’ll now be joined by '80s icon Anthony Michael Hall in hoping that Bennett Miller can "do a Jonah Hill" for his career too.

Several highly anticipated films are already set to bow at the Rome Film Festival when November rolls around. We already know we can expect to see Roman Coppola’s “A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III,” the Walter Hill-directed comeback vehicle with Sylvester Stallone's “Bullet to the Head,” and maybe even a surprise bit of Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained” may be in order. Still, there’s a quieter side to the festival that isn’t all debuts of big Hollywood films, and that’s where Marjane Satrapi’s “Gang of the Jotas” fits in.

While the aggressively discomforting exploits seen within TLC's reality show “Toddlers and Tiaras” only continues to grow in popularity, it may require a moment to remember other children-centered projects that don't immediately elicit a worried reaction. However, thanks surely to the success of 'Tiaras,' one of its most prominent starlets will lead a new "The Little Rascals" remake, just shy of twenty years after Penelope Spheeris' 1994 film.
