Liam Neeson Scene Will Have "Gravity"; Phillips Still Working On John Belushi Biopic With Zach Galifianakis In Mind"The Hangover 2" quickly went from highly anticipated sequel shooting somewhat under the radar to a picture that now has a neverending stream of news coming out about the film. You would think Edward and Bella were in this thing, but we suppose that's what happens when you attempt to cast Mel Gibson in an ill-advised cameo. Combine that with press rounds for "Due Date" happening shortly after all of this broke and you have the perfect storm, so consider this a wrap up of the news of all things Todd Phillips-related in the past 48 hours or so.

Swedish Actress Also Says She's Happy David Fincher Went With An Unknown For His Version Of 'Dragon Tattoo'Noomi Rapace. She's everywhere. The hottest thing out of Sweden since IKEA, Volvo and Björn Borg. Ever since her icy, steely turn as Lisbeth Salander in the Swedish tele-version of "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" she's swept up every female role in Hollywood remotely resembling someone gorgeous, but with grit and mettle, right?

Still A Few Hurdles To Clear Before It Goes Into ProductionWe're big fans of comic-turned-actress Aubrey Plaza. She was a refreshingly different love interest, albeit underused, in Judd Apatow's "Funny People," she walked away with her scenes in "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World," and she's shown surprising range on NBC's excellent "Parks and Recreation." While our Aubrey-Plaza-for-Lois-Lane campaign hasn't yet gained any traction (give it time...), we're as pleased as anyone with today's news that she's graduating to fully blown film lead.

Nicolas Cage Will Somehow Have To Survive With A $7 Million PaycheckIndustry analysts claim the recession ended in June 2009, but how can that be true if it still troubles our superheroes? It was just 2007 when Nicolas Cage was suited up to play Johnny Blaze in "Ghost Rider," a film budgeted north of $110 million. Cage received somewhere between $12 and $20 million upfront, and the film grossed $229 worldwide before a healthy DVD life. Mortgages were paid, Sony was flush with cash, and everyone was happy.

Oh, Noomi Rapace, how you’ve dazzled us. Through three Stieg Larsson-inspired adventures, you’ve jumped, screamed, sexed and hacked your way into filmgoers’ imaginations, even if they were only art house patrons. Your angular cheekbones, androgynous chin and bouncy night-black hair have undergone several transformations for the sake of this colorful narrative, a three-movie epic involving Neo-Nazis and their modern-day positions of power. Through all this, you have persevered.

Geoffrey Fletcher's (screenwriter of "Precious") directorial debut "Violet & Daisy" has just received a boost of British class, as Marianne Jean-Baptiste has joined the cast of the film. Who? She's probably best known for her outstanding and Academy Award nominated performance in Mike Leigh's "Secrets & Lies," but unfortunately hasn't found anything since to match the profile that film gave her. But hopefully, her appearance here will help turn that around (though she is a longstanding fixture on the TV series "Without A Trace.")
