Like a match made in heaven, Lucas Till who played Havoc in "X-Men: First Class" is teaming with "X-Men" and "X2" scribe David Hayter for the writer's directorial debut "Wolves." And no, there won't be any spandex suits involved. Instead, as the title suggests it's a werewolf story, with Till playing the hairy beast who is falsely accused of murdering his parents and is forced to go on the run. He winds up in a town named Lupine Ridge, which, you might be surprised to learn, has supernatural shit going on, and along the way, he'll learn about his past. It's intriguing we suppose, even it sounds vaguely like a Wolverine movie just switched out to a werewolf instead. We'll soon find out -- filming kicks off next month. [THR]

The last time you saw Mark Margolis, it was likely as the wheelchair-ridden, mute but still deadly Tio Salamanca in "Breaking Bad." He's the kind of character actor who just basically just kills it whenever he appears, so no wonder he's found a fast friend in Darren Aronofsky, who has utilized him in every one of his films to date. And that won't change with "Noah," with the director tweeting a picture of him on set. No word yet on what his role will be in the biblical epic, but it's another addition to the growing cast that now includes (deep breath): Russell Crowe, Emma Watson, Jennifer Connelly, Logan Lerman, Douglas Booth, Ray Winstone, Anthony Hopkins, Kevin Durand, Martin Csokas, Dakota Goyo, Jóhannes Haukur Jóhannesson and Arnar Dan. "Noah" opens its doors on March 28, 2014. [via The Film Stage]

Starring in John Hillcoat's "Lawless" opening later this month, and featuring in two Oscar-bait pictures by the end of the year in Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby" and Kathryn Bigelow's "Zero Dark Thirty," Aussie actor Jason Clarke continues his run at Hollywood by taking a role in Roland Emmerich's "White House Down." He'll join an ensemble cast led by Channing Tatum as a Secret Service agent defending the president from a terrorist attack -- spearheaded by Clarke's baddie Stentz -- with Jamie Foxx, Maggie Gyllenhaal, James Woods and Richard Jenkins rounding out the cast. Production begins later this month in the most American of locations -- Montreal. [Deadline]

Lastly, "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" has added Lynn Cohen ("Munich," "Synecdoche, New York") to the cast as Mags, an eighty year-old victor from District 4. She'll among the the new faces of the ensemble which include Amanda Plummer, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Jena Malone, who join the returning cast led by Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth in the saga that will now spread to four movies. 'Catching Fire' opens on November 22, 2013.
