Vince Vaughn wants to make an action movie. Correction: he really wants to make an action movie. The past little while has seen his name get attached to atypical material for the comic actor, including the thriller "The Risk Agent" and the Randall Wallace-penned "Gunslingers." And now his name has been linked to another action-oriented project.

As any reader of the site knows, we're big fans of Imogen Poots, and we'll just go ahead and say that she's the secret weapon of both the upcoming "A Late Quartet" and "Greetings From Tim Buckley," which premiered at TIFF last month. Her star is on the rise, as she's been seen rubbing elbows with Terrence Malick in "Knight Of Cups." And now she's landed her first bona fide blockbuster movie.

While cities like Toronto, Venice, Telluride, New York and London tend to get the most shine when it comes to the festival season, down in Georgia, the fifteen years young Savannah Film Festival is continuing to build into an enticing spot on the fall calendar. And this year they have rolled out an impressive list of screenings and guests. The Playlist spent the weekend at the still-ongoing festival, which opened with "Silver Linings Playbook" and was followed the next evening by "Flight," with star John Goodman and writer John Gatins in attendance. They were honored with the Outstanding Achievement in Cinema Award and Spotlight Award respectively prior to the highly buzzed screening, and afterward we sat down with each of them to quickly chat about the movie.

Here's a little bit of reality to dampen your excitement. Earlier this week it was reported that "Skyfall" screenwriter John Logan had been hired to write a lengthy James Bond story that would take place over the course of two films, "Bond 24" and "Bond 25" essentially. Considering it's never been done before and the idea would be ambitious for the Bond series, the appetites of many fans were whetted over the news.

As you already know, yesterday came with it the monumental news that Disney had forked over $4 billion for Lucasfilm, and are launching a new "Star Wars" trilogy, with the first film slated to arrive in 2015. Of course, the internet nearly had a meltdown, and fans have been tossing around wishlists of directors (sorry guys, David Fincher will never come near this) and wondering aloud where the story will go next. In fact, we put together our own list of ways Disney may be approaching the next part of the saga, and also wondered if integrity can be restored to the franchise. Well, this is a step in the right direction.

Wes Anderson's next picture, "Grand Budapest Hotel," is already gearing up...though he'd prefer not to talk about it. But over the course of the last few weeks and months, we've learned that's a Euro-flavored pic (more on that in a sec) that will feature Bill Murray, Jude Law, Ralph Fiennes and Jason Schwartzman with some/all of Edward Norton, Jeff Goldblum, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe and Owen Wilson among those all likely to take part. And that's it. Well, a few more details about the movie have been squeezed out of the secretive helmer.
