Terrence Malick, a director who not long ago was famed for the vast lengths of time between his film releases, now has no less than three (or is it four?) projects at various stages of development. In fact, we’re constantly having to remind ourselves which film is which when a new piece of information arises. Well some new pictures have turned up from a Malick set and they feature Cate Blanchett, Christian Bale and Natalie Portman so by a process of elimination we’ve worked out that we must be talking about “Knight of Cups.” Oh, wait, they’re all starring in his untitled movie as well, aren’t they? See how this can get confusing!

As a youth, Ed Zwick must have really enjoyed history class as films with a period setting and/or stories set to the backdrop of war or conflict are a recurring theme in his work. Despite a gear change with "Love And Other Drugs" in 2010, Zwick looks to be returning to his bread and butter with "The Great Wall," a China-set historical epic.

Albert Hughes just can't catch a break with casting for his latest effort, "Motor City." After a lengthy search for a male lead that saw names like Chris Evans, Dominic Cooper, Jake Gyllenhaal and Jeremy Renner all linked before Gerard Butler jumped on board, the project has now hit another wall, losing its villain and female lead.

The return of Spike Jonze is an exciting prospect on its own but with Joaquin Phoenix as his lead and three leading ladies along side him in Amy Adams, Rooney Mara and Olivia Wilde, we're delightfully anticpating his upcoming, untitled project. Apparently centering a man who falls in love with a Siri-like computer voice presumably on an iPhone device, we now have a couple of set photos of a mustached Phoenix running around a subway station before lazing around on a Manhattan beach.

Well, "Prometheus" is a success (at least financially), openingly strongly this weekend with the best R-rated numbers since "Paranormal Activity 3" last fall. But if you've now seen the movie and think that's all there is, guess again. The viral campaign for the movie continues with a new video, a book and a mysterious date to keep the chatter going.

Pema Tseden is a name you're going to be much more familiar with in the coming years. With his strong sense of visual composition and a dedication to presenting the real Tibet, it's only a matter of time before Cannes starts lapping his films up.

“Thor 2” is losing one of the Warriors Three, the Hollywood Reporter is reporting. Josh Dallas won’t be reprising his role as Fandral due to his schedule for ABC’s hit fairy tale show, “Once Upon A Time.” Instead, “Chuck” star Zachary Levi is in talks to take over the role that he initially had to turn down when the cult NBC comedy had its season three order extended.

Sorry Guys, Christopher Nolan Says He Won't Be Making Any More Batman Movies

You would think, with Christopher Nolan more or less saying for a while now that "The Dark Knight Rises" was going to be his last time in Gotham, and with advertising for the film clearly stating that it's "The Epic Conclusion" to his series of Batman films, that talk about a possible fourth film would be quelled. Not so. Recently, Christian Bale was asked by the Spanish edition of Rolling Stone magazine if he would suit up again as Batman. “No, this is the last of this Batman era. Unless Nolan wants to do another," he replied. Well, fanboys in some quarters held onto the latter half of that quote like a life preserver on the Titanic, but in case it wasn't obvious already, it's not going to happen.

While the youngsters of "Project X" filled out Warner Bros. dudes-getting-drunk-and-into-trouble niche this year to the tune of $94 million worldwide (not bad for a low budget movie with no big names attached to it), in 2013 The Wolfpack will be back to show 'em how it's done in "The Hangover Part III." And while chatter has been pretty steady ever since "The Hangover Part II" about what the final entry of the series will involve, it now seems like a clearer picture is emerging of what the movie will entail.
