Trivia question: how many of Stephen King’s books haven’t been adapted for either television or cinema? We don’t actually know the answer, but percentage-wise it can’t be very high (even though his seven “The Dark Tower” novels look no closer to making it onto the big screen any time soon) and now yet another one of his novellas is being adapted for the screen. Deadline reports that one of King’s tales from 1982’s "Different Seasons," “The Breathing Method,” will be making the transition thanks to Scott Derrickson (“Sinister”) who is developing the project (presumably to direct).

If Ben Affleck's Oscar contending "Argo" has proven anything, it's that truth is indeed stranger than fiction, and his based-on-a-true story tale has an even more interesting footnote to go along with the story.

While it would appear that Robert Pattinson is back together -- or at least hanging out with -- Kristen Stewart (just in time for their 'Breaking Dawn' press tour, which is surely no coincidence), the actor continues to line up an impressive array of projects. And already attached to movies with Werner Herzog and David Michod, he's got another non-Hollywood filmmaker that's lining up in his schedule.

“We flew in people from New Zealand and Swaziland and all over the place,” David Fincher said last year about trying to cast Lisbeth Salander for "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo." “Look, we saw some amazing people. Scarlett Johansson was great. It was a great audition, I’m telling you. But the thing with Scarlett is, you can’t wait for her to take her clothes off.”

John Leguizamo has carved out a career that sees him going from the stage to the big screen to TV and back again, with barely a moment to catch his breath. He broods in dramas when required, and plays the comic card quite easily as well, one only has to look at his movie roles for 2012 -- with stints scheduled in "Kick-Ass 2" and "The Counselor" -- to see just how varied his work can get. But one of his next gigs will see him pulling out another card from the deck stacked with laffs.
