After his self-assured feature film debut—2000’s “George Washington”—few could have predicted the twists and turns that David Gordon Green’s filmography has taken. Working at a furiously fast pace, just when you think you've got him pegged, he confounds once more. Don’t let him make a remake of the horror “Suspiria”? Fine, he’ll go shoot “Prince Avalanche” in secret with some friends and announce it after it’s done. Expect him to make more studio comedies a la “The Sitter”? He’ll bang out two indie dramas in a row practically back to back—“Joe” starring Nicolas Cage which Roadside Attractions will release on April 11th of this year (trailer here) and “Manglehorn” starring Al Pacino which should hit the festival circuit later this fall.

Director Rawson Marshall Thurber Also Rewriting Adaptation Of Gerard Way's 'The Umbrella Academy'We love Jason Bateman. There's no denying the actor was hilariously great on the career-rebounding "Arrested Development" and while he's been cast in a plethora of films since -- "Juno," "Hancock," "The Kingdom," "State Of Play," "The Switch," "Paul," "Horrible Bosses" and the upcoming "The Change-Up" -- he's always been the bridesmaid never the bride. Always adding to a comedic or dramatic ensemble the actor (nor any studios) have been willing to roll the dice on Bateman as a bonafide leading man, but it seems that's all about change.
