An aging assassin who tries to retire and finds himself pursued by a younger, stealthier clone of himself. "Looper" much? But long before Rian Johnson put his dazzling and inventive movie on the big screen, Touchstone Pictures picked up the rights to a movie called "Gemini Man" way back in 1997. Originally pitched by "Lost" writer Darren Lemke and later re-written by a group that included Johnathan Hensleigh ("The Punisher"), the movie got another draft from writer David Benioff ("The 25th Hour," "Troy") a few years ago, and was poised to be a vehicle for Curtis Hanson with Jerry Bruckheimer producing. And while that didn't happen, somewhere along the way Joe Carnahan came knocking.

Matt Damon Reteams With Terry Gilliam For Small Part In 'The Zero Theorem,' Peter Stormare & Sanjeev Bhaska Also Join Cast

The last time Matt Damon and Terry Gilliam worked together, the results weren't so hot. "The Brothers Grimm" was promising on paper, but a bit of mess in execution, a situation only exacerbated by Harvey Weinstein, who famously meddled with Gilliam and disagreed with his approach on the movie. The result? A product that felt compromised when it was released and one that the director lamented. But either way, it seems everyone enjoyed their experience. Damon's 'Grimm' co-star Heath Ledger reteamed with Gilliam for "The Imaginarium Of Dr. Parnassus" before tragically passing in the midst of production, and now Damon will lend a helping hand to "The Zero Theorem."

Well, with director Marc Webb and star Andrew Garfield officially back for "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" (and Emma Stone soon, right guys?), and with a release date less than two years away, the gears on the sequel are beginning to turn. And now we have a new actress looking to board the movie, along with the possible identity of the villain.

It takes two to tango, and while Kristen Stewart was kind of put over the coals for her dalliance with "Snow White and the Huntsman" director Rupert Sanders, his narrative became that of a man trying to save his marriage. And while we let the tabloids keep tabs on that latest in the affair fallout, everyone else and Sanders too it seems is getting on with their lives. Universal is pushing ahead with a sequel to the fairy tale movie with Stewart, but the question remains as to whether or not Sanders will return. And if he doesn't, it seems there may be another franchise for him to put his hands on.

You may not know her name -- or be able to say or spell it -- but next summer geeks everywhere will have Svetlana Khodchenkova down cold. The actress, probably best known for her part in last year's "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy," got her Hollywood break and nabbed the role of Viper in "The Wolverine" after Jessica Biel dropped out. And now, a little teaser of her in the movie has landed online.

It seems the year of Kevin Costner just won't quit. With "Hatfields & McCoys" proving he's still got some mojo, the actor has been busy on the still-untitled Jack Ryan reboot (which may even launch a spin-off with his character), he's pitching a franchise called "The Explorer's Guild" and he'll star in McG's Luc Besson-produced thriller. And now, the man who is no stranger to sports movies is going to get on the gridiron for Ivan Reitman.

While the status of the next "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" movie remains unknown, there is still plenty coming forth from director David Fincher.

And now it looks like he'll bring his razzle dazzle back to the commerical world where he cut his teeth for one of the most anticipated games of the fall.

It seems that with "Gangster Squad" pushed back for reshoots following the tragic incident this summer in Aurora, Colorado, Warner Bros. has decided to retool the marketing campaign a bit as well. And thus a new one sheet arrives that strives for an old school crime flick, but instead looks like a cheapie studio VHS cover.

While we wait for Fox to convince Liam Neeson to return for "Taken 3," that they clearly want, for those of you looking for more low-rent, insipid action from the actor, he's got "Non-Stop" coming. It's just too bad he's bringing some other actors who deserve better down with him.
