After a six year break from directing between "Hostel: Part II" and the upcoming "The Green Inferno," it looks like Eli Roth won't let a gap like that happen again: he's lining up a new horror film to tackle.

There were always going to be knock-on effects from the staggering success of "The King's Speech," and already we've seen Madonna's hamfisted attempt take on some of the same events in "W.E," while stammering Bertie and his Queen Elizabeth will be back on screens later this year, played by Sam West and Olivia Colman, opposite Bill Murray's President Roosevelt in "Hyde Park On Hudson." But there's one other film set around the same kind of time period on the way, a project that's just found a princess.

Of everything this Oscar season, the biggest question mark has been "The Iron Lady." While most of the films in play made festival bows months ago, or have started screening for long-lead press by now, Phyllida Lloyd's biopic of legendary British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, starring the equally legendary Meryl Streep, has been kept tightly under wraps, with only a brief teaser trailer showing how the film might turn out.

Now that latecomers like "Hugo," "Young Adult," "J. Edgar" and "War Horse" have started screening for the press, there's only a handful of Oscar hopefuls that remain unknown quantities. Along with Angelina Jolie's directorial debut "In The Land of Blood and Honey," which won't hit theaters until Christmas, the most high-profile is "The Iron Lady," the biopic of legendary British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, which reteams Meryl Streep and her "Mamma Mia" director Phyllida Lloyd. Acquired by The Weinstein Company during Cannes, the film's raised eyebrows by skipping the festival circuit entirely, in part, we're told, because Lloyd went back to make tweaks to the film at the last minute.

Rising Stars Jack O'Connell, George MacKay & Alexandra Roach Lead Cast, Mark Knopfler To Write ScoreIt's not out until Christmas, but already "War Horse" is widely seen as an awards front-runner: it is, after all, directed by Steven Spielberg, based on a beloved novel, follows hot on the heels of a much-praised stage version that's been a smash hit both in London and on Broadway, and combines both a gruelling war tale and a touching journey to track down an animal, so it will have to be a real disaster to not leave audiences teary-eyed at the end. And it looks like people are banking on its success, as another novel with a World War One setting by Michael Morpurgo, writer of the original book, is heading to the big screen.

For smaller independent producers, the problem with your long-atttached star suddenly generating new heat is that they're flooded with new offers; bigger films, more tempting films. As such, it can be hard to keep their interest -- Carey Mulligan, for instance, dropped out of British indie "This Beautiful Fantastic" in favor of "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps" after "An Education" blew up. That same issue now faces Iain Softley and his psychodrama "Trap for Cinderella."
