It looks like "The Hunger Games" pals Woody Harrelson and Liam Hemsworth are eager to spend their time away from the YA franchise together as well. Future bromance? We'll see, but this project does sound interesting. The pair will star in the revenge western "By Way Of Helena."

The drama around Marvel’s “Ant-Man” has finally settled. Edgar Wright has moved on, Peyton Reed is the new director and “Anchorman” filmmaker Adam McKay is going to pen the rewrite (though c’mon people, no one’s going to leak Wright and Joe Cornish’s draft? That’s something everyone wants to read). What’s left other than to see the film next summer? Well, more details obviously since the Internets can’t resist revealing everything about a movie.

Now that "Ant-Man" has a director in Peyton Reed ("Bring It On," "Fantastic Four"), with Adam McKay rewriting the script, the saga over Edgar Wright's sudden departure is over, right? Wrong. His exit still looms large over the movie, and likely will for a while, until he officially weighs in on what happened, or Marvel steps out from their string of press releases to talk about it. Until then, the rumor mill will continue to churn.

Rawson Thurber
With Marvel announcing Scott Derrickson as the director for "Doctor Strange" last night, it was a brief moment of distraction from their ongoing search for someone to get behind the camera for "Ant-Man." But that moment was short-lived as last evening came the news that one of the reported frontrunners for the job had dropped out.

Adam McKay
Welcome to the rumor mill at its most...rumor-y. The past 24 hours have been a prime example of everyone trying to get to the story first before there's one actually there. Yesterday, we learned that Marvel had their eyes on Adam McKay, Rawson Thurber and Ruben Fleischer to replace Edgar Wright on "Ant-Man," with plans to meet with those directors, presumably with other unnamed filmmakers in the mix. Then, before the day was out, it was reported that McKay had jumped the queue, was in talks to land the gig. Well, the weekend is here and the director's chair for "Ant-Man" is still vacant.

Is this week’s “Ant-Man”/Marvel drama finally drawing to a close? It’s been such a whirlwind of emojis I don’t even know what to think anymore. Yet who to believe? Earlier today, three men emerged as the finalists to fill the director’s chair on “Ant-Man” recently vacated by filmmaker Edgar Wright after eight years of development and what sounds like a last minute losing of nerve from Marvel in favor of something more safe and familiar.
