Take the worst successful bar band you can think of (it was Nickleback, don’t lie). Downgrade their talent about halfway. Now imagine the sheer amount of bands that fulfill that criteria, currently on the road shuffling from bar to bar, hoping to get lucky and have that one moment where the public puts down that one brand of shitty vanilla and samples them instead. Barely alive from a somewhat negligible record company relationship, their van heads from motel to motel, barely scraping by as the bandmates drown their free time in a sea of cheap booze and disinterested groupies.

We were only just talking about how talented young actress Abigail Breslin has some real range, not to mention a whole slate of finished and potential projects. Today we see the poster for one of those potential projects, “Janie Jones,” which we first told you about way back in late 2010.

Perhaps still best known as the potbellied pageant princess in “Little Miss Sunshine,” Abigail Breslin has spent the better part of the last decade growing up on screen. From her precocious young character in the Ryan Reynolds-starring “Definitley, Maybe,” to the anarchic youngster in “Zombieland,” Breslin has proven to have something a lot of the Disney approved tween set are lacking: range.

My how time flies. It seemed it was only yesterday that we were watching a young, sweet and bespectacled Abigail Breslin take a road trip with her oddball family in "Little Miss Sunshine." And while she has done a handful of films since -- including most notably "Zombieland" -- we're still kind of shocked that she's now fifteen years old. And clearly, she's ready to try something a bit darker and more adult.

We're getting older, and we're no longer afraid to admit that. However, it does come with certain disadvantages. Our ears have aged to that point that we're now unable to hear Justin Bieber's voice, for instance. We were offered a role in a Neal Moritz-produced remake of "Cocoon" the other day. And, perhaps most importantly for this profession, we can no longer distinguish the various young-adult-novel properties that are vying to replace "Twilight" as the teen-franchise-du-jour.

Variety is reporting that the world will be graced with another vampire film titled "Innocence," based on the book of the same name by Jane Mendelsohn. Right now Abigail Breslin and Julianne Moore are attached to star in the story about a grieving teenage girl who discovers that her private school is home to a nest of vampires. Though roles haven't been confirmed, Breslin will most likely be playing main character Beckett, with Moore playing the school nurse that embeds herself in Beckett's life by marrying her father. The film will be directed by Hilary Brougher, a widely unknown female director who last directed "Stephanie Daley" with Tilda Swinton and Amber Tamblyn.

Pic Is A Spin-Off Of Marshall's Successful 'Valentine's Day' Romantic DramedyAfter somehow scoring half the talent in Hollywood -- Julia Roberts, Bradley Cooper, Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, Jennifer Garner, Taylor Lautner, Taylor Swift, etc (Julia Roberts was paid $5 million for five minutes of screentime) -- for his tepid and mawkish ensemble film, "Valentine's Day," director Garry Marshall is gearing up to amass another sizable cast for the film's spiritual sequel, "New Year's Eve."
