It seems what Wes Anderson wants, Wes Anderson gets. Earlier this summer, with "Moonrise Kingdom" doing solid business in theaters, the writer/director started putting the pieces together for his next film, "The Grand Budapest Hotel," eyeing Johnny Deep, Jude Law and Angela Lansbury as potential players alongside his usual roster of actors such as Bill Murray, who recently confirmed he'll be taking part. Depp and Law are both on board, and another wish is coming true for Anderson.

Ben Affleck has gone from a talk show punchline to being one of the most sought-after directors in Hollywood (Warner Bros. has pretty much offered all of their major projects to him). Next month sees the release of his third directorial outing -- with himself as the lead for the second time -- with the highly buzzed “Argo,” and the studio has released a set of character posters and a new still for the film.

For more than two decades, Robert Carlyle has been a familiar face in projects on both sides of the ocean, becoming one of the most reliable players on TV and in the movies. Of course, he's likely best known for playing the deliciously deranged Begbie in "Trainspotting," but roles in "28 Weeks Later," "The Full Monty," "Angela's Ashes" and more have solidified him as a true talent. And while it's not often that we seem him in a lead role, when the opportunity arises it's likely one worth checking out, and you'll get a chance soon with "California Solo."

Thomas Vinterberg has certainly been on an interesting journey since breaking out with "Festen" nearly fifteen years ago. While that film put him on the map, he struggled to follow it up, with audience and critical indifference meeting subsequent efforts like "Dear Wendy," "It's All About Love" and "Submarino." But this spring, Vinterberg once again wowed Cannes with "The Hunt," a searing drama starring Mads Mikkelsen (who took home Best Actor) as a man wrongfully accused of sexually abusing a young girl. And it hasn't taken the director long to leverage that success into a potentially exciting new project.

The upcoming "Pitch Perfect" is more entertaining than you might think it has any right to be. For all the potential pitfalls that a studio-driven comedy about a capella might bring with it, the Anna Kendrick-starring film is often smarter and funnier than the material might suggest, and at least going by the audience this writer saw it with, it's a big crowd pleaser. It also features a lot of music. And while the official soundtrack does a great job of representing the performances in the movie, there are still lots of songs referenced or mixed that aren't there. But we're here to help.

Well, it can't be said that Ruben Fleischer is being predictable with his movie choices. After breaking out with the horror comedy "Zombieland," he's gone on to direct a zany buddy movie in "30 Minutes Or Less," and is currently finishing up the period gangster flick "Gangster Squad," which recently underwent reshoots following the tragic events in Aurora, Colorado over the summer. And for his next move, Fleischer will take on a video game.
