While J. Blakeson's underrated feature debut "The Disappearance Of Alice Creed" didn't exactly blow up the box office, it did find its way in front of the right people in Hollywood, and they soon came knocking. Over at Warner Bros., he's already been tapped to direct "The Imitation Game," a hot script that has seen hot directors like David Yates, Ralph Fiennes and Bryan Singer among those being sought for the gig. And now, he's got another big project in the works, and it looks like it will roll first, with a pretty decent name attached.

Of all the stuff that happened last at night at MTV's VMAs -- Lady Gaga's lame Chris Gaines-esque alter ego! Tyler The Creator winning! "Hunger Games" teaser trailer! -- the biggest news belong the baby bump sported by Beyoncé. That's right universe, the "Single Ladies" singer and Jay-Z are procreating, so get yourselves ready (the fetus even has its own Twitter account). But alas, while we await the momentous day when that child arrives in the world, her collaboration with Clint Eastwood on a new take on "A Star Is Born" will have to wait.
