Indie thrillers, franchises and family movies—it's a wild mix in this casting round up, so let's to it. First up, Nicholas Hoult has replaced Zac Efron in the upcoming "Autobahn." Set to be written and directed by Eran Creevy, who made some waves this year with his thriller "Welcome To The Punch," the movie follows a backpacker and his girlfriend (to played by Amber Heard), who is hired by German drug smugglers, only for the job to go south and be forced to flee on the freeways of the title.

Damn it. Just when we thought we were going to be able to ignore Zach Braff's controversially crowd-sourced sophomore feature, he goes and casts Anna Kendrick. According to The Wrap, the "Pitch Perfect" star, so often the best thing in whatever she's in, has joined the cast of Braff's currently-prepping "Wish I Was Here." The actress will play the love interest of Braff's character's brother (Josh Gad), a young cosplayer named Janine. Manic Pixie Dream Girl alert! Mandy Patinkin is also in the cast (Mandy Patinkin Dream Girl alert!), and Kendrick will next be seen in the questionable-looking "Rapturepalooza," which opens on June 7th.

There are basically two ways to go as an up-and-coming filmmaker. One possible way to go is to make your debut feature, and use it as a springboard to get access to projects already brewing the system, so you can keep working, honing your craft and expanding your skillset. The other path is to keep developing your own movies, and hope that your voice is one people will want to invest in.

'Ghost Rider' Helmer Mark Steven Johnson Somehow Still Getting Work, Attached To Direct 'Autobahn'

There are many, many bad directors who keep somehow finding big movies to direct: McG, Brett Ratner, Scott Stewart. But one of the most baffling is Mark Steven Johnson. The rare example of a filmmaker who seems to get worse rather than better, he started off, after penning the likes of "Grumpy Old Men" and "Jack Frost," by directing the sickly "Simon Birch." He then landed the big job of helming Fox's "Daredevil" -- no great shakes, but "Hiroshima Mon Amour" compared to his next superhero flick, "Ghost Rider." Last year, he proved there was no genre that he couldn't suck at by being the man behind the joyless, lifeless Kristen Bell rom-com "When In Rome."
