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.

According to THR, the folks who represent "Skyfall" Bond girl Bérénice Marlohe are determined not to let her career fall into the rut of so many who came before, those who featured alongside 007, only to be forgotten. But if you're looking for expsoure, we'd second guess casting her in a movie where the likelihood of getting cut and replaced with a shot of an undulating wheat field is very high.

Wes Anderson's "Grand Budapest Hotel" has mostly been developing under cover of night, but yesterday the director himself spoke up about the movie. He revealed that it takes place 85 years in the past and is inspired by the films of Billy Wilder and Ernst Lubitsch, which sounds just fine to us. And just 24 hours later, a new cast member has joined, an actress that will be a fresh face amongst his usual troupe.

It has been an interesting, arthouse-driven year for both pop star Kylie Minogue and actress Gemma Arterton. The former features in the lesbian werewolf drama "Jack and Diane" (opening today) and in one of the most talked about movies of the year, Leos Carax's "Holy Motors." As for Arterton, she's been busy on the festival circuit helping to get the word out for Neil Jordan's vampire flick "Byzantium" and the feel-good Brit comedy "Song for Marion." But the two are set to team up in something a bit more multiplex-ready.
