Well, we're breathing a bit of a sigh of relief. Just over a week ago it was reported that Werner Herzog's "next project" would be an adaptation of DBC Pierre's "Vernon God Little." It made us a bit worried that his Gertrude Bell biopic had been put on ice, but not only is it still moving, it has a new cast member and a start date on the horizon.

With Kristen Stewart seemingly back with Robert Pattinson and the so-called scandal from this summer behind her, the actress is getting ready to get back in the game. She's on the press trail for "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -- Part 2," and her junket tour will likely continue for "On the Road" next month. And with Volturi now in the rearview, she's looking at her post-Bella career, and this is a pretty good choice.

What does "The Matrix" trilogy, Quentin Tarantino's "Kill Bill" films and Wong Kar-Wai's eventually arriving "The Grandmasters" all have in common? The assistance of legendary Hong Kong action choreographer Yuen Woo-ping. And while Hollywood has come calling for his skills, he hasn't really felt the need to crossover here.

With Justin Lin currently in production on "Fast & Furious 6," the director has been carefully lining up options – lots of options – for what he'll take on once he's done with Vin and co. Since the spring his name has become attached to a smattering of projects including manga adaptation "Lone Wolf & Cub," an adaptation of the stage play "Chinglish," the long-developing inner city drama "L.A. Riots" and earlier this week, the sci-fi "Subdivision." Well, one more is being added to the pile.

As Disney showed earlier this week with the purchase Lucasfilm, it's all about branding, merchandising and leveraging properties so they keep generating revenue as long as possible. And that's no less true at the other major studios that continue to pursue tentpoles that can be sequelized, spun off, packaged in Happy Meals and more. All of which brings us to "How To Train Your Dragon."

Oren Peli announced himself as a genre director to watch after he caught Steven Spielberg’s attention and delivered the stripped back, franchise-launching “Paranormal Activity” in 2007. But since then Peli has only taken on director’s duties once more (on the forthcoming “Area 51”) and has instead seen his focus shift primarily to producing and writing. And that’s a trend that seems set to continue after departing the director’s chair on the Edgar Allen Poe project, “Eliza Graves.”

We're coming near to the end... Steven Soderbergh's cinematic hiatus is imminent, but he's looking to go out with a bang. This summer's "Magic Mike" was not only a big hit, but managed to make a story about male strippers a throwback to character-driven movies of the '70s. And now we have the first trailer for his penultimate film, and third team up with Channing Tatum: "Side Effects." And, yes, it looks great.

You might think after the three, highly acclaimed "Paradise Lost" documentaries from Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky, not to mention the incredible amount of press around the case of the West Memphis Three, that the dramatic well has run dry on the subject. You would be wrong. Director Amy Berg revisits the case in the upcoming "West of Memphis," and this new trailer shows that the tale of justice not served continues to be a powerful one.
