Get ready, Stanley Kubrick completists, because Kino Lorber have some very exciting news for you today.

Has someone over at Fox been reading The Playlist? It was only a few weeks ago, shortly after David Slade exited "Daredevil," that we unveiled our list of possible replacements, and one of them was none other than Joe Carnahan. "He's got style, blockbuster experience and a good feel for street life, which seems to be a good mix for a project like this," we wrote, and it seems the suits over at the studio agree.

It looks like Harvey Weinstein wants to stay in the Jennifer Lawrence business, and who can blame him? With the actress already leading a hit franchise for Summit in "The Hunger Games" and poised to turn heads with The Weinstein Company's release of David O. Russell's film "The Silver Linings Playbook" later this year, of course they'll want to keep that talent under their roof if possible.

While "The Adjustment Bureau" became a surprise sleeper hit last spring, taking in over $120 million worldwide, George Nolfi has remained mostly under the radar since. He's got a couple projects brewing as a producing and/or screenwriting vehicles, and he was shortlisted to helm "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," but it looks like he's got another directorial gig lining up.

While Billy Bob Thornton broke out in a big way as a director with "Sling Blade," his efforts behind the camera since have failed to live up to that promise. From the troubled production of "All The Pretty Horses" to little seen efforts like "Daddy & Them" and last year's Willie Nelson documentary "The King Of Luck" (which, to be fair, is still look for a home) he hasn't yet matched that initial spark. But audiences in Toronto will get to see if he's turned it around with his latest "Jayne Mansfield's Car."
