Ever since his run as the governor of California ended, people have speculated about the future of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s career. There were rumors of a return to the “Terminator” franchise as well as the long-gestating World War II film “With Wings As Eagles.” But while he’s set to return later this month in the sequel “The Expendables 2,” we’re more excited by his role in the new film from “I Saw The Devil” and “The Good The Bad The Weird” director Kim Jee-woon, “The Last Stand.”

The paths of Will Ferrell, Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson have crossed many times in movies such as "Wedding Crashers," "Zoolander," "Starsky & Hutch," "Anchorman" and "Old School." And lucky for us, they will all be meeting up once again. Ferrell is slated to take a cameo role in currently lensing "The Internship," the movie that finds Vaughn and Wilson playing recently downsized men in their forties who try to make it as interns at a successful Internet company where their managers are in their twenties. So who will Ferrell play? Well, he'll be "Wilson's brother-in-law, who sells home electronics and has no problem making inappropriate comments about his attractive customers." So improv heaven -- sounds good to us. Lensing is underway on the Shawn Levy-directed movie which should hit theaters sometime next year.

Like a match made in heaven, Lucas Till who played Havoc in "X-Men: First Class" is teaming with "X-Men" and "X2" scribe David Hayter for the writer's directorial debut "Wolves." And no, there won't be any spandex suits involved. Instead, as the title suggests it's a werewolf story, with Till playing the hairy beast who is falsely accused of murdering his parents and is forced to go on the run. He winds up in a town named Lupine Ridge, which, you might be surprised to learn, has supernatural shit going on, and along the way, he'll learn about his past. It's intriguing we suppose, even it sounds vaguely like a Wolverine movie just switched out to a werewolf instead. We'll soon find out -- filming kicks off next month. [THR]

Remember 1981’s “Endless Love” starring Brooke Shields and Martin Hewitt (who he?) from Italian director Franco Zeffirelli? Well, this writer doesn’t, but that would be the case for any Brooke Shields film made before he was born. A lot of people just might remember it though, but not because of the romantic drama plot about a teenage couple whose love is continually thwarted by (as IMDb puts it) by “circumstance and accident.” So why might you remember it then? Well, there are two reasons. The first is the song’s theme – the Diana Ross and Lionel Richie song of the same name. The second is that it was the first appearance of a 19 year-old Tom Cruise on the big screen.

It's a good week for dream projects with Akiva Goldsman involved, with Warner Bros. helping to make them come true. With the studio now taking a very close look at Ron Howard's sprawling "The Dark Tower," they are also flipping the switch on the long developing "Winter's Tale." Set to mark Goldsman directorial debut, the fantasy will be led by Collin Farrell and "Downton Abbey" star Jessica Findlay-Brown with Will Smith and Russell Crowe in small roles, in the story that follows a thief who breaks into a wealthy man’s home, sparking a relationship with the man’s terminally ill daughter with reincarnation, a flying horse, and a time-shift of 100 years all playing a part of the plot. William Hurt has now joined the film, and will be playing the father of the dying girl. Production begins in October.

If engaging in the game's online world just isn't enough for you, never fear as Blizzard Entertainment continue to develop their massively popular video game "World of Warcraft" for the big screen, with a new writer coming on board. Director Sam Raimi and screenwriter Robert Rodat ("Saving Private Ryan") had been working on the project for years, but at the San Diego Comic-Con, Raimi admitted that his commitment to "Oz The Great and Powerful" had forced Blizzard and Legendary Entertainment to move on "to another director" -- one that has yet to be named.

Hey hey hey! The dog days of August are upon us, which means summer is both at its peak (temperature-wise) and nigh complete (vacation time-wise). There are just a few more weeks to squeeze in those action-packed, costume-rife, voice-modulator-studded blockbusters – at least until Christmas – so let’s make the most of our time, shall we? Meanwhile, the limited releases include a riff on the classic rom-com “When Harry Met Sally” and a movie about getting pregnant that isn’t directed by Judd Apatow. Until next week, enjoy your local theater’s air conditioning!

Director Jose Padilha has been spending the past few months filling out his cast for his upcoming "RoboCop" remake, which, if you're disgusted by the idea of such a thing, we're sorry to say is still happening. If you're not bothered at the idea of yet another remake of a Paul Verhoeven sci-fi classic (what's next? A "Starship Troopers" remake? Oh, wait, that's happening too), then you'll probably be thrilled to learn that the role of Liz Kline will be filled by Jennifer Ehle. Who is Liz Kline? Actually, we don't know.

Yes, the Marvel movie universe is getting much, much bigger and apparently, funnier as well, as their next superhero team-up movie will dole out laughs and action in equal measure.
