Hey guys, the internet can be totally fun times with stuff like Tumblr, porn, Facebook, memes, YouTube and whatnot. However, very bad stuff can happen on it too, and it could probably ruin your life or something. That seems to be the message of "Disconnect," the first narrative feature from "Murderball" director Henry Alex Rubin, and his first movie since 2005.

Hey guys, the internet can be totally fun times with stuff like Tumblr, porn, Facebook, memes, YouTube and whatnot. However, very bad stuff can happen on it too, and it could probably ruin your life or something. That seems to be the message of "Disconnect," the first narrative feature from "Murderball" director Henry Alex Rubin, and his first movie since 2005.

While we're wary of the premise, he has aligned some solid talent with Jason Bateman, Hope Davis, Frank Grillo, Paula Patton, Michael Nyqvist, Andrea Riseborough, Alexander Skarsgård, and Max Theriot among the ensemble. Even more, Max Richter ("Waltz With Bashir," "Shutter Island") is scoring the film. Not bad. Here's the official synopsis: Disconnect interweaves multiple storylines about people searching for human connection in today’s wired world. Through poignant turns that are both harrowing and touching, the stories intersect with surprising twists that expose a shocking reality into our daily use of technology that mediates and defines our relationships and ultimately our lives.

LD Entertainment has snapped up the U.S. rights, but no release date yet.

Meanwhile, Alexander Skarsgård will also be out in force for "What Maisie Knew," where he co-stars alongside Julianne Moore and Steven Coogan in a story about a child caught between two warring parents, in a contemporary update of the classic book. Here's the official synopsis: Based on the Henry James novella, the story frames on 7-year-old Maisie, caught in a custody battle between her mother – a rock and roll icon – and her father.

No distributor for this one yet, but the busy Nick Urata has also scored this film (along with fellow TIFF film "Arthur Newman") and it's one we'll be keeping an eye on.
