Well, this is a bit unexpected. Randall Wallace, the writer behind such manly fare as "Braveheart," "Pearl Harbor," and "We Were Soldiers" (which he also directed), seems to be showing a softer side of late. A couple of years ago, he delivered the wholesome Disney horseracing movie "Secretariat," and now he's lined up a movie about a little kid who goes to heaven. We're not fucking kidding.

For the most part, Vince Vaughn hasn't deviated all that often from the comedic persona which is his bread and butter, and why should he? He has it down cold, it pays the bills and it keeps his calendar busy. But it looks like the "The Cell" and "Psycho" actor is readying something a little bit different.

Oscar nominated back in 1996 for his "Braveheart" script, but Razzie nominated six years later for writing "Pearl Harbor," it's probably fair to say that Randall Wallace writes a particular type of Hollywood script with varying levels of success. In the role of director, however, his films are much more reliably mediocre. His three efforts behind the camera -- "The Man in the Iron Mask," "We Were Soldiers" and "Secretariat" -- are all fairly competent, if far from thrilling films, so it's kinda hard to get excited about a new Randall Wallace picture.

When it was announced that Mel Gibson was teaming with writer Joe Eszterhas for a biblical epic about Jewish historical figure Judah Maccabee, we more or less assumed that it would mean the death of his long-gestating Viking epic, which was originally supposed to team Gibson with William Monahan, Graham King and Leonardo DiCaprio. Monahan even confirmed late last year that he never wrote a word for the project and that, as far as he knew, it never went past the announcement. Well, it looks like throughout all his recent struggles, Gibson never gave up on his Viking dreams.

Wouldn't it be better if Paul Thomas Anderson named his new upcoming movie "Master of Puppets" and scored it with Metallica? Ok, maybe that wouldn't work so much.

Mel Gibson is back. Sort of. After a very rocky 2010, with his personal life spilling in to an ugly mess all over the tabloids, it pretty much seemed like the actor/director's career had tanked. However, it seems that over time, the public, once astonished at the things that came out of Gibson's mouth, are now ready to forgive him. Or least see what he has to offer. "The Beaver" has been getting pretty good reviews, and when it hits theaters on May 20th it will be interesting to see how audiences react. But Gibson is plowing ahead. In an interview with journalist Allison Hope Weiner, given as an exclusive to Deadline, the actor talks about everything in a fairly no-holds-barred interview, but for us, what's most interesting is what he's plotting next.
