Crispin Glover has joined the indie-action thriller "Motel," which already has John Cusack, Robert De Niro and Rebecca Da Costa attached to star. David Grovic will direct the story about a hit man (Cusack) hired by a crime boss (De Niro), who teams up with a mysterious woman to fight off a bunch of baddies in the Delta. Um, okay. Martin Klebba aka the dwarf who punched people in the groin in "Project X" is also on board, and the film is currently shooting.

Sofie Gråbøl (star of the original Danish series "The Killing") and Signe Egholm Olsen will team with Dogme director Søren Kragh-Jacobsen's latest film "The Hour Of The Lynx." Based on an original story by Swedish author Per Olov Enquist, the psych-thriller will follow a vicar who runs an experiment which gives violent, traumatized inmates at an institution the responsibility of caring for animals as pets.

Kevin McKidd and Ashley Jensen will star in "Indian Summer," a bittersweet romance film about "love, life and identity, set in a remote farm in the Scottish highlands in the summer of 1967." The film was written and will be directed by Brian Ward, with Iain Brown producing along side Mike Kelt and Joanna Dewar Gibb. Lensing in the Highlands will get underway next May. [ScreenDaily]
