In the works for a while now, screenwriter Akiva Goldsman ("Cinderella Man," "I Am Legend") had to do a finessing to get his directorial debut, the ambitious fantasy "A Winter's Tale" off the ground. First, he had to shave $20 million off the initial budget of $75 million, and to ease studio concerns about the marketability, he got pals Russell Crowe and Will Smith (see above credits) to take small roles. But with casting firming up over the past year, this thing is now ready to roll and the last puzzle pieces have fallen into place.

There are few young actresses right now who are on quite the same trajectory as Elle Fanning. With directors like Cameron Crowe, J.J. Abrams, Francis Ford Coppola, Sofia Coppola, David Fincher, Tony Scott and Alejandro González Iñárritu already on her impressive CV, we can only imagine an Academy Award nomination isn't too far away. Her work just seems to be getting better and better, and her latest turn in Sally Potter's "Ginger & Rosa" may be her best yet.

While the trailer for "Killing Them Softly" may feature Johnny Cash, the movie itself goes for a different musical angle all together. Andrew Dominik's searing and scathing film takes a select batch of tunes ranging from pop standards to rock 'n' roll classics and uses them distinctly, powerfully and usually ironically to help spin his tale of a heist gone wrong in a crumbling America.

“Game of Thrones” directors aren’t doing too badly for themselves of late. After the runaway success of the first two seasons of the show, their names are tossed into the ring for a lot of high-profile projects and Alan Taylor went one better by landing the gig for “Thor: The Dark World.” Established television director Brian Kirk (“Luck,” “Luther,” “Great Expectations”) was also talked about in relation to that job, and while it didn't pan out, it looks like he’s now got his reward.

Out of musical comedy trio The Lonely Island, Andy Samberg has enjoyed perhaps the most mainstream success in both film and TV, but by no means have his co-members been slumming it on their own fronts. While Akiva Schaffer recently scored a better directorial opportunity than result with his summer effort “The Watch,” Jorma Taccone has been busy developing a number of different projects, in addition to popping up in Lena Dunham's “Girls,” and now finds himself fronting perhaps his highest-profile project yet.

Screenwriters Tom Lennon and Robert Ben Garant are no strangers to the studio-pitched franchise, as their alternately tumultuous forays with “Herbie: Fully Loaded” and “Night at the Museum” have exhibited. It's a testament then to their combined versatility that they are able to switch gears abruptly, having recently finished production on their co-directed horror comedy “Hell Baby,” and as that film is being tweaked in post, one-half of the duo has decided to carry on directing with a familiar vibe to their past projects.

While his brother Albert is having a hard time getting a movie mounted, with "Motor City" recently being scuttled, Allen Hughes is on a bit of a tear. He's in post-production of "Broken City," the thriller starring Mark Wahlberg, Russell Crowe and Catherine Zeta-Jones, and now he's lining up a remake that will be sure to raise some eyebrows, particularly among fans of Korean cinema.
