German avant-garde rockers Popol Vuh are producing a special limited box-set containing their scores for the Werner Herzog + Klaus Kinski buddypack of "Aguirre: The Wrath of the God," "Nosferatu," "Fitzcarraldo," and "Cobra Verde," plus "Heart of Glass," which features lead performances by hypnotized actors. Those not down with Herzog's latest (or dismayed that their favorite renegade director became a done-to-death Internet meme where all jokes go to die a million times over) will enjoy the trip down memory lane, as included in the collection is a near 100-page booklet featuring "unseen footage and images." 5,000 copies only, pre-order while they're hot at Amazon!

In another tale of limited editions and niche audiences, longtime Fox music consultant Nick Redman's DVD label "Twilight Time" will release soundtracks to old pictures such as John Huston's "The Kremlin Letter" and Richard Fleischer's "Violent Saturday." Each pressing features an essay booklet, movie stills, and poster art; if successful with the Fox catalogue, Redman will seek deals with other studios. Interested eyes look no further than screenarchives.com, as it's the only hub for these gems. [Variety]

A biopic of the very fascinating Nina Simone has been paused, courtesy of Simone's daughter who goes by the stage name, Simone. "Nina" has been in development with Mary J. Blige attached, but the daughter of the titular character has taken issue with Blige's comment on the singer's history with drug use. Seems like young Simone was expecting a more glorified venture, but girl, those kinds don't win Oscars. [ShadowAndAct]

David Lowery's newest short, "Pioneer," will debut at Sundance and stars a mustachioed Will Oldham. There's a few stills and, of course, the musician seems perfect for the role as a father weaving the most epic bedtime story "ever." Yup, that would be Bonnie 'Prince' Billy all right. This is one of three movies featuring the singer to arrive in 2011, with R. Alverson's "New Jerusalem" and Jennifer Elster's odd "Into the Woods" also rolling out. As an actor this is the most productive he's ever been, and considering his past work's consistency, we'd love to see more of it. [Sundance]

Spin's got a first look at the new Clash documentary, "The Rebel Truce, the history of The Clash." The clip contains about 5 seconds of old footage, with the remaining minute and a half dedicated to boring, still sit-down interviews. Hopefully a movie about one of the greatest, exciting bands of all time will be a little more varied than what the clip portrays. [Spin]
