Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu will be opening his highly anticipated "Birdman" this fall, will shoot "The Revenant" not long after, and has a new TV show on the way, "The One Percent." Starz has just given the show a straight-to-series order, with the program bringing together the unlikely cast of Hilary Swank, Ed Helms and Ed Harris, telling the story of "a downtrodden farmer (Helms) as he struggles to hold onto his family and his farm, when a bizarre twist of fate becomes a life-changing secret that will either save them or ruin them." We're intrigued. [Deadline]

Spike Jonze is teaming up with Jonah Hill to co-write a one-act play for fashion label Opening Ceremony. You'll be able to see it during New York Fashion Week. Jonze will direct, but Hill won't be taking a role. [EW]

Lone Scherfig ("An Education," the upcoming "The Riot Club") has taken over for Nick Cassavetes to direct the ABC pilot "Astronaut Wives Club." Already having achieved a ten episode order, the show will tell "the real story of the women who stood beside some of the biggest heroes in American history during the height of the space race." [THR]

Todd Phillips and his bud Bradley Cooper are continuing their bro-llaboration. They are already teaming to produce the director's next film, "Arms & The Dudes," and they've got another project cooking. They've snapped up the rights to Evan Ratliff's The Atavist article "A Thousand Pounds Of Dynamite." The true story follows "the race to stop one of history's most bizarre extortion plots, which began on Aug. 26, 1980, when a Nevada casino discovered a gigantic bomb and a ransom note sitting on its second floor." The project is set up over at Warner Bros. [The Wrap]
