Despite a successful run over at Columbia directing "Talladega Nights: The Ballad Of Ricky Bobby," "Step Brothers" and "The Other Guys," that wasn't enough for Sony to get on board for Adam McKay's adaptation of the comic book "The Boys." The studio axed development on the movie back in February, and it's not entirely difficult to see why. The ultra violent work by Garth Ennis is definitely a major gear change from the comedies McKay is known for, but it appears another studio is throwing their hat in the ring.

To say that Robert Pattinson has been filling his post-"Twilight" calendar with ambitious films would be an understatement. This weekend brings his trippy David Cronenberg odyssey "Cosmopolis," and over the past few weeks and months, the actor has signed on to a handful of interesting films, including "Mission: Blacklist" about the hunt for Saddam Hussein, Werner Herzog's historical tale "Queen of the Desert" and "Animal Kingdom" director David Michôd's "The Rover." And it's the latter about which the actor has shared some tantalizing details.

While his sister Megan has become something of a saviour for auteurs like John Hillcoat and Paul Thomas Anderson, David Ellison is the flipside to that coin with major stakes in tentpoles like last year’s rousing success, “Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol,” and his Skydance Productions is entering negotiations with “Taken” director Pierre Morel to helm “The Hitman’s Bodyguard.”

It's safe to say that whenever actor Tom Hanks switches to being a producer, his preference is for projects that delve into an American historical event. Whether it's the HBO series "From the Earth to the Moon," "Band of Brothers" or "The Pacific," Hanks clearly has a keen interest in the past, and his latest project is no different, as it explores the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

Who are you, James Franco? In his never-ending quest to defy convention, Franco recently picked up a role in actioner "Homefront," written by Sylvester Stallone and starring Jason Statham, returned to TV for four episodes of "Hollywood Heights," and will cameo later this year in "Lovelace" as Hugh Hefner, as well as appear in the seemingly-shot-in-a-weekend thriller "The Letter." With starring roles in Sam Raimi's "Oz: The Great and Powerful" and Harmony Korine's "Spring Breakers" set for 2013, what's next for Franco? How about teaming up with Lindsay Lohan (sort of) for a film about themselves while also directing an adaptation of William Faulkner's "As I Lay Dying?"

With "The Expendables 2" opening this weekend, its stars are using the opportunity to pimp their other forthcoming movies. Earlier today, Arnie got the lead out with a trailer for "The Last Stand," that while totally rote, was at least identifiably a straight faced action movie. And now, Sylvester Stallone drops "Bullet To The Head"....and we don't know what to think.

It’s been awhile since Winona Ryder, star of a vast array of films from “Edward Scissorhands” to “Girl Interrupted,” has really taken the lead in a picture – lately she’s mostly been a supporting player in films like “Black Swan,” “Star Trek,” and her upcoming reteaming with director Tim Burton on the stop-motion “Frankenweenie.” Unfortunately, if the trailer for her upcoming return to leading lady status “The Letter” is any indication of the film that follows, we’re not quite sure we’re ready to have her back.
