If the graphic violence, giant rats, and seizure-inducing imagery of “Cosmopolis” dissuaded you from the film's otherwise compelling look at sex and politics, then perhaps Robert Pattinson's period drama “Bel Ami” is more up your alley. A new clip and soundtrack details have hit the web, and they both certainly share some similarities, believe it or not.

And now we have our first look at the film.

While Jason Statham had better things to do than join the amped up "Fast & Furious" franchise, we have to say this bit of casting is a bit more inspired anyway.

Sean Penn doesn't do comedy. Wait, let's rephrase that...Sean Penn doesn't do comedy often. Of course, there's "Fast Times At Ridgemont High," and he's lent his incredible talents to comic vehicles only a handful of times in such films as "We're No Angels," "What Just Happened" and "Shanghai Surprise." But he's not above doing funny stuff. In fact, you may recall for that for the longest time he was attached/linked to an earlier incarnation of The Farrelly Brothers' "The Three Stooges" (and he likely dodged a bullet) and he's also guested on Zach Galifianakis' "Between Two Ferns" (watch below). But a role in a remake of a classic film with Ben Stiller? Yeah, we didn't see this one coming either.

So, will the romance of the open road, and a whole other America waiting in the distance in "On The Road" inspire young people everywhere to journey across this land? Or at the very least get them to read Jack Kerouac's book? That remains to be seen, but the spirit of the beats is alive in the upcoming film from Walter Salles.

The adaptation of Elmore Leonard's "Freaky Deaky" boasts an impressive cast of colorful characters, including Andy Dick, Christian Slater, Billy Burke and Crispin Glover. However, action fans will spot one surprising name: Michael Jai White, who steals the film as two-timing bodyguard Donnell Lewis. After the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of the film, White spoke of his upcoming projects -- while he doesn't have the household name of some of his co-stars, he's no less busy than all of them.

"We've done about two per cent! Half a per cent? We've got five pages of story notes and chunks of story. We're holing up writing for the next three months," Adam McKay tells Empire about the development of the "Anchorman 2" script. And while there is still a lot of time for things to change, shift and evolve, it's pretty clear that he and Will Ferrell have got a general idea about where the story will go. The good news is that the period setting will remain, the even better news is that we're going to another big gang fight. No word yet if the man on fire will return.
