Well, here's a nice little reward for the rising director Craig Zobel. After coming to attention with his 2007 comedy "Great World Of Sound," the helmer made big waves this year with the unsettling thriller "Compliance." The film, essentially about a prank that goes to some very dark and twisted places, inspired impassioned responses from those who both loved and hated the film, and it seems that buzz has reached the ears of some pretty important folks. And as Zobel gears up a new film, he's got a pretty big name to help him make it happen.

Robin Wright is in negotations to join Anton Corbijn's adaptation of John le Carré's novel "A Most Wanted Man." Quickly becoming one of our most anticipated projects of 2013 -- Corbijn's "The American" being one of the vastly underrated pictures of 2010 -- this political thriller centers on a Chechian Muslim who illegally immigrates to Hamburg and then gets caught up in the international war on terror.

From the director of "Treeless Mountain" and "In Between Days," comes "For Ellen," a bleak and moody-looking picture about a fuck-up rocker also trying to negotiate being a father. However, is it far too late? Directed by So Yong Kim and starring Paul Dano, Shaylena Mandigo with appearances by Jon Heder, Jena Malone, Dakota Johnson, and Margarita Levieva, "For Ellen" doesn't exactly look like a great time at the movies, but it does seem to feature a commanding performance by Dano. And perhaps one we've never seen from this young actor.

Fans of director Takeshi Kitano’s 2010 Japanese thriller “Outrage” were probably a little overjoyed to see that a sequel to the film entitled “Outrage Beyond” would be making its way to theaters relatively soon, and even happier when it turned out it would be playing TIFF in September. Now we’re getting a fresh look at the anticipated sequel, with a few images and a trailer (via Twitch) hitting the web.

When the trailer for the Bryan Singer-produced web series “H+” hit the web back in July, we were certainly impressed by the feature-like production value and novel concept of the series which certainly piqued our more sci-fi prone tendencies. "H+" is set in a future world where technology has moved beyond smart phones in the palm of our hands to pushing itself further into our lives due to a new device from a high-tech company named Hplus Nano Teoranta. Basically, It's a widget that's capable of connecting both the human brain and the Internet in the most nightmarish of ways. When a virus is unleashed on this system, killing a third of the world’s population, only bands of survivors are left in the chaotic aftermath.

Now, this is how you not only get over a breakup, but continue to build a helluva resume. Say what you will about Robert Pattinson, but he is using his "Twilight" fame to take on challenging, interesting projects. Over the past few months, he's attached himself to "Mission: Blacklist" about the hunt for Saddam Hussein, a mystery movie about The Band, and "Animal Kingdom" director David Michod's "The Rover." But wow, we could not have seen this next move coming.

Getting a film out in the world is a tough business, but for writer/director Mark Nistico, the effort behind his feature debut "Blue Collar Boys" has paid off with some recognition. Traveling the festival circuit, the movie earned Best Picture (Micro Budget) at the Toronto Independent Film Festival, as well as Best Screenplay at the Hoboken Film Festival. And while it won't be getting a nationwide release, it may be one to pay attention to if it screens near you.
