Martin Scorsese might have just turned 70 (here's our tribute piece in case you missed it) but he's showing no signs of letting up. The director recently wrapped on "The Wolf Of Wall Street," his reteam with Leonardo DiCaprio that's due next year, and he's got plenty of other projects lined up too, including producing a documentary on Roger Ebert, directing a Garth Brooks concert movie, reuniting with Robert De Niro on "I Heard You Paint Houses," and possibly, helming Scandinavian thriller "The Snowman," and his long-gestating Sinatra biopic.

So here's the pitch: a massage therapist develops an aversion to bodily contact. Hilarity right? You might think that, as it's from Lynn Shelton, the writer/director behind "Humpday" and "Your Sister's Sister." But as the helmer tells EW, her latest "Touchy Feely" marks a bit of a change. ”It doesn’t have this rollicky, bantering feel that my last couple films have had,” she says. “It definitely has laughs, but it really is a drama. It’s really about attempting to live in your own skin, both literally and metaphorically.”

As far as a post-Potter career goes, Daniel Radcliffe is doing pretty nicely. He won acclaim on Broadway, starred in the global sleeper hit "The Woman in Black," picked up good reviews alongside Jon Hamm for TV miniseries "The Young Doctor's Notebook," and has generally proven to be a pretty smart cookie in terms of carving our a career away from his biggest franchise that's closer to Harrison Ford than Mark Hamill. And the next stage? Cracking the indie scene, with the young actor's first Sundance premiere.

Perennially cast as the eye candy or love interest in B-action movies like “Never Back Down” and “Drive Angry,” Amber Heard is set to take her talents to a much higher profile project. Variety is reporting that the “All The Boys Love Mandy Lane” actress is joining the McG-helmed “Three Days to Kill” opposite Kevin Costner.

There are few directors at the blockbuster level who are as engaged in the marketing of their films than J.J. Abrams. The director understands how word travels around the web and uses it both to his advantage and control. He's been behind viral campaigns for his previous films, and even though he gamely showed a select group of movie folks the 9 minute preview for "Star Trek Into Darkness" that's now playing in front of IMAX screenings of "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey," he asked they not reveal too much (though we just saw it in the theater and broke it down a bit more in detail here). But it's purity of experience he's hoping to achieve, which brings us to this new teaser trailer.

This Christmas holidays are nearly upon us (damn, that was fast) and while Hollywood will take a brief breather, come January everyone will be packing their bags and kicking off 2013 at the Sundance Film Festival. It's as pretty stellar lineup this year, and in particular, two projects with female leads -- hailing from the same hit TV show -- are ones we'll be keeping our eye on.

There is nothing better to have in Hollywood than options, and Aussie helmer and Blue Tongue Films collective member Kieran Darcy-Smith is learning that lesson. The actor arrived at Sundance earlier this year with his debut feature, "Wish You Were Here," and while not exactly a breakout hit, it seems to have provided more than enough momentum to get some projects set up. He's already slated to helm a segment of the omnibus "Sydney Unplugged," this fall he lined up the thriller "By Way Of Helena" and he's got an untitled romance kicking around as well. Now comes another project and should all the chips fall into place, it will be his next.

Veteran director John Boorman, president of the Jury at the Marrakech International Film Festival last week, has had an interestingly checkered career of era-defining highs ("Deliverance," "Point Blank") and baffling, outlandish lows ("Zardoz,""Exorcist II") and all points in between. Now nearing 80, the director, in addition to his presidential duties, was the subject of a "Conversation with…" evening, during which time he reminisced and curmudgeoned in a profane, often hilarious manner, following a showing of his daughter Katrine's documentary about him, "Me and Me Dad." Unfortunately we missed the film, but heard good things about it, and the “Conversation with...” went a long way to making up for that in sheer entertainment value.  Essentially as often in his career, Boorman gave the audience exactly what they wanted: lots of gossipy anecdotes about the people he's worked with, and plenty of Billy Wilder quotes. Here are a few choice findings from the evening.

While turning 40 in Judd Apatow's latest might not be pretty, the writer/director/producer knows that of the many things that mark mid-life, music is a big one. And perhaps more than any other of his films to date, "This Is 40" is stacked with music. The official soundtrack boasts 17 songs, including new tunes from Norah Jones, Fiona Apple, Graham Parker, and Lindsey Buckingham. The movie itself features even more, including a handful of unlikely surprises.

If you were a film fan and had the Independent Film Channel in the early aughts, there was no doubt you were watching "Dinner For Five." Jon Favreau led the unscripted show that found him sitting down each week for a meal with four actors, directors, writers etc. to talk about film. The format was simple, and rarely deviated from its conversational tone, except when it came to the legendary Martin Scorsese.
