You gotta hand it to Summit. It seems they don't fear Gotham's reckoning nor the comedy powers of Vince Vaughn and Ben Stiller, as at the end of the month, they'll be dropping "Step Up Revolution," the fourth entry in the surprisingly still-running franchise in which teenagers solve their problems through the power of dance. And while the budgets might have gotten smaller, the music department still seems to have the same latitude to spend.

Establishing himself as one of the most popular and reliable character actors around, with a schedule that doesn't seem to quit, Richard Jenkins has now lined up a key role in Roland Emmerich's upcoming action drama "White House Down." He'll join an ensemble cast led by Channing Tatum as a Secret Service agent defending the president from a terrorist attack (with Jamie Foxx as the Commander In Chief himself), with Maggie Gyllenhaal and James Woods as fellow high-ranking Secret Service agents. Jenkins, meanwhile, will play the Speaker of the House, who trails the VP in the line of succession. The script comes by way of "Zodiac" scribe James Vanderbilt who sold his screenplay for $3 million to Sony earlier this year. [Variety]

It was a long, eventful road that John Hillcoat's adaptation of Matt Bondurant's "The Wettest County In The World" took into production, but the Nick Cave-scripted, Prohibition-era drama -- now titled "Lawless" -- will finally hit theaters on August 31st with a star-studded cast in tow. At the heart of all the action and drama is the youngest of the three Bondurant brothers, played by Shia LaBeouf, who finds himself front and center for the film's latest poster.

Well that was fast. Looks like the rumors were true. Johnny Depp has joined Wes Anderson's new film. Not only that, the project -- which will be the director's eighth feature-length effort -- has a title, "The Grand Budapest Hotel," which sounds Anderson-like enough (see "The Darjeeling Limited").

For the most part, Vince Vaughn hasn't deviated all that often from the comedic persona which is his bread and butter, and why should he? He has it down cold, it pays the bills and it keeps his calendar busy. But it looks like the "The Cell" and "Psycho" actor is readying something a little bit different.

There are few comedies that will hit theaters this year as strange and odd as "Frankie Go Boom." And the first clip/teaser has arrived, in the wake of the film's Comic-Con appearance, and it gives you a pretty good idea of just how far out there this one is.

Yes, we're still playing a bit of catch-up with the deluge of geekery that landed over the past few days at Comic-Con, but we're nearly there. While Marvel got the most press for the unveiling of logos and titles, as well as the confirmation of Ben Kingsley as Mandarin in "Iron Man 3," the company also dropped a pretty decent helping of "Item 47," the upcoming One Shot short set to appear on the "The Avengers" DVD and Blu-ray this fall.
