While he didn't say it as succinctly in our interview with him this weekend, though director Steven Soderbergh is retiring from filmmaking for the time being, that doesn't mean he's retiring, period. The filmmaker told The Playlist while his second-to-last movie, "Side Effects," is due in theaters next week (his final one with Matt Damon and Michael Douglas arrives on HBO in the spring), he also added that directing plays or TV is still an option.

Along with Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson, we've watched Rupert Grint grow up on the big screen through the 'Harry Potter' films, and just like his castmates, he's moving onto a diverse array of projects, one that he hopes will allow people to see that he's much more than just Ron Weasley. Last week, he had a role in "The Necessary Death Of Charlie Countryman" which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, and his upcoming performances include playing The Dead Boys member Cheetah Chrome in "CBGB," a part in the Dennis Wilson biopic "The Drummer," and the lead voice role in the animated "Postman Pat." And this spring, he's earning his wings.

Perhaps it's fitting that a movie centering on a man who conned an entire sport and legion of fans and followers, would be this convoluted even before a script was written. But to recap, in brief: Bradley Cooper told the BBC he'd be interested in making a movie about Lance Armstrong. J.J. Abrams says he's already been emailing Cooper about a project that he's developing about the cyclist. And now?

It may seem like the studios have forgotten they have some summer tentpoles to market, but just bear in a mind a few things. We're still in the midst of the awards season and the Sundance Film Festival just wrapped, so executives and marketing departments are temporarily preoccupied. Also, the Super Bowl is next weekend, and you can bet that it will be the launching pad for a half dozen major campaigns, so just sit tight. Until then, a few more images have arrived to tide you over.

While "The Impossible" didn't quite become the Oscar player some might have expected (though it did earn a nod for Naomi Watts) the film established Juan Antonio Bayona as a director who could deliver big screen spectacle with ease and power. And Warner Bros. has decided to tap that talent.

Thus far, 2013 has been a major drag for new movies, with January once again proving to be the drop-off zone for movies that studios regret making. But thankfully, February is less than a week away and the cinematic horizon looks a bit brighter. One movie many are already talking about is Steven Soderbergh's penultimate picture, "Side Effects."

Hey wait, didn't this wrap already? With lensing taking place this fall on Terry Gilliam's "The Zero Theorem," and the movie in post-production, you might think it's a matter of putting completed pieces together now, but it seems there are still a couple of things to finish up. The movie has already been operating with a bit of mystery around it, and now here comes another piece of puzzle: it seems there is a role up for grabs and Gilliam wants Bill Murray for it.

While “Lincoln” hovers in DreamWorks' awards season spotlight mainly for Daniel Day Lewis' towering performance, the studio is wisely also glancing ahead to its other doppelganger drama, WikiLeaks biopic “The Fifth Estate,” starring Benedict Cumberbatch as Julian Assange. They've certainly put in a vote of confidence with a locked winter 2013 release date, but one party remain less than thrilled simply on the entire prospect: the famed whistleblower himself.
