Writers Greg Kinnear Jennifer Connelly skip crop

Josh Boone will be making his feature film directorial debut with “Writers.” The film centers on Bill Borgens (Greg Kinnear), a prominent author still emotionally attached to his ex-wife, played by Jennifer Connelly. Lily Collins and Nat Wolff (“New Years Eve”) take the roles of their children, who are both romantically entangled with a classmate (Logan Lerman) and a first love (Liana Liberato), respectively. Rounding out the cast is Kristen Bell, playing Tricia, Bill's casual hook-up attempting to aid him through his destructive feelings. Also popping up? Stephen King in a cameo. [EW]

Big Sur skip crop

Fans of Jack Kerouac have more than just Walter Salles’ adaptation of “On The Road” to look forward to. Next year sees the release of the big-screen adaptation of Kerouac’s semi-autobiographical 1962 novel, “Big Sur,” which stars Jean-Marc Barr as the iconic writer and Josh Lucas as his pal, Neal Cassady. And we have our first official look at the pair in character. While the novel used pseudonyms, the film, scripted and directed by Michael Polish (“The Astronaut Farmer”), will use the writers’ real names. Kate Bosworth, Anthony Edwards, Radha Mitchell, Balthazar Getty and Henry Thomas round out the somewhat eclectic cast. The film is also being scored by the identical twins from The National, Aaron and Bryce Dessner. [EW]

Romeo & Juliet Hailee Steinfeld Paul Giamatti skip crop

Lastly, hot on the heels of the first look at Hailee Steinfeld as Juliet in the latest “Romeo & Juliet” incarnation, we have a few more official stills that include Paul Giamatti as Friar Laurence and Stellan Skarsgard as the Prince Of Verona in full period garb. If nothing else, the film looks like it’ll be immaculately costumed. [Kinopoisk]
