With Paris and New York City getting auteur-driven portraits with "Paris, je t'aime" and "New York, I Love You," those movies have inspired producers and filmmakers from around the world to develop their own city-driven projects. And while omnibus films have been percolating in places like Rio, Shanghai, Jerusalem, Berlin and Sydney over the past few years, it's Tbilisi in Georgia that have come out of the gate with the next effort.

According to a Batman on Film, there's a rumor circulating that Batman could be rebooted, post-Christopher Nolan, not in his very own standalone film but as part of the proposed "Justice League" movie. This new version of the character would then star in a separate film after the "Justice League" movie is released and makes a whole lot of money. Take this for what it is – an extreme, ALL CAPS rumor – but in a weird way it would make sense for the "Justice League" property to introduce DC characters that can then be spun off later, in a kind of inverse of the Marvel model, in which a bunch of mediocre movies served as the precursor to the much better team-up film "The Avengers."

Nash Edgerton is a man of many hats. A stuntman and coordinator of some reknown who has worked on everything from "The Matrix" trilogy to "The Thin Red Line" to "Moulin Rouge!", he's also a filmmaker, likely best known for the thriller "The Square" but also earned strong notices for his recent short, "Bear." But it appears he has a friend in Bob Dylan as well. Little did we know, but he's directed two videos for the legend already, "Must Be Santa Claus" and "Beyond Here Lies Nothin,' " and now a third has arrived.

Werner Herzog Directs Cheery New Documentary Series 'Hate In America'

In the last few years, filmmaker Werner Herzog's documentary output has garnered more critical acclaim and commercial attention than his narrative efforts. Just last year, "Cave of Forgotten Dreams," Herzog's nearly catatonic 3D movie about ancient cave paintings, was a critics' darling and became the highest-grossing documentary of 2011, earning nearly $4 million at the domestic box office despite offering almost no entertainment or information value whatsoever. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Herzog will be returning to the documentary field with two new limited series – "On Death Row," a three-part follow-up to his "Death Row" series of interviews with convicted felons awaiting execution, and "Hate in America," an all-new four-part look at hate crime in America. You might want to make sure your prescriptions for antidepressants are filled before watching either.

With Paul Thomas Anderson's "The Master" heading full-steam into its official premiere at Venice (though it has already screened "unfinished" in a handful of cities), the one overriding message from everyone involved thus far is: it's not about Scientology. And indeed, our own review said that "while those looking for a scathing indictment of any well-publicized religion are certain to find similarities, in some cases even direct parallels, Anderson never creates an atmosphere of outright derision." And it's that statement Amy Adams was presumably trying to get across in her appearance on "Late Night With David Letterman" last night, before she was interrupted numerous times by the host who couldn't help himself by mentioning Scientology numerous times.

James Franco in dreadlocks! Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson, and Rachel Korine all sweaty and half dressed! A Florida-set crime romp! Given all the ingredients for it to be potentially batshit crazy, the first clip to make its way online from Harmony Korine's "Spring Breakers" is relatively normal.

Rachel Weisz Reportedly Doesn't Make The Cut On Terrence Malick's 'To The Wonder'

A Terrence Malick movie is like a box of chocolates -- you never know what you're going to get. Especially if you're in the cast. Ever since "The Thin Red Line," Malick has earned a reputation for being somewhat ruthless when it comes to cutting actors (Adrien Brody went from being the lead in that film to practically a glorified extra), and even for "The Tree of Life," there are dozens of stills floating around that depict countless scenes that were shot and excluded from the finished film. And thus, with "To the Wonder" shortly to premiere at the Venice Film Festival, it appears one high-profile name won't be seen in the film that runs just under two hours long.
