Chloe Moretz and Michelle Pfeiffer will be hoping that their latest project together will be somewhat more entertaining than the abject “Dark Shadows” which they collaborated on earlier this year. They’ve joined the cast of “Man Under,” a production which has also added an Academy Award winning actor and Academy Award nominated director in one fell swoop, as Tim Robbins will also star alongside Pfeiffer and Moretz, and will direct the dysfunctional family comedy.

Winning the Newberry Award in 1994, Lois Lowry's "The Giver" seems to have been in development nearly as long. The movie came close to being made a couple of times, once with "House of Sand and Fog" writer-director Vadim Perelman at the helm over at Fox, and then again at Warner Bros with David Yates to direct. That fell apart when Yates went on to tackle "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" instead. Last we heard well over a year ago was that it was still puttering along after Jeff Bridges stepped in and nabbed the rights, with Perelman still involved at the script level. Now, some new life has been kicked into it.

For one of the big box-office and awards hopes of the Christmas season, "Les Miserables" has been keeping its cards close to its chest, with only a single teaser trailer, and some scattered TV spots and featurettes, showing a glimpse of "The King's Speech" director Tom Hooper's cinematic take on the long running musical adaptation of the Victor Hugo novel. It's not entirely surprising, given that the film only wrapped in July, and the filmmakers are chasing a punishing post-production schedule.

"Bill Hader and I have a project together where we play twins, both incredibly depressed, and it’s actually really serious. It’s already written. It’s called 'The Skeleton Twins.' We’re just hoping that financing will come along soon, but it’s a great project," Anna Faris told Vulture this spring. How things change. Presumably, the comic actress is taking some time to spend with her new baby boy, but luckily for Hader the project is moving on and it now reteams him with an old friend.

It looks like Warner Bros. wants to see as much green from "Man Of Steel" as they can. This summer, the cat was let out of the bag very early by an accidental post on the official IMAX page, but now it has been confirmed: Zack Snyder's Superman movie is getting spit-shined for a 3D and IMAX release (while also coming in regular 2D, of course).
