Well, despite a lawsuit from Joe Pesci, movement continues on the indie production of "Gotti: In the Shadow of My Father," as the film has added another strong actor to the improbably impressive cast.

Regardless of whether that plot synopsis from last night is legit or not (and Fox have denied it), we're more excited for "Prometheus," the sci-fi tale that seems to be set in the same universe as the "Alien" films, and that marks director Ridley Scott's first science fiction movie since "Blade Runner," than we thought we'd be, considering it started off as that most redundant of movie phenomenons, a prequel. Scott and writer Damon Lindelof have been talking a good talk about the originality of the film, and they've assembled quite the cast, with Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Sean Harris, Kate Dickie, Rafe Spall, Guy Pearce and Logan Marshall-Green. And now it's being alleged that another top actor has joined the cast.

First Synopsis For The Film; Ned Beatty Also Part Of The Ensemble CastEven though producer/star Ben Foster has said a 2012 festival unveiling is the likely plan, we're still kinda hoping Oren Moverman's sophomore directorial effort, L.A. cop-drama "Rampart," will sneak onto 2011 calendars somehow.

Review: ‘Mechanic’ Remake Is Exactly What You’d Expect From A Jason Statham Movie In January

"The Mechanic" is the prototypical early year action movie -- nothing more and nothing less. Star Jason Statham, who again plays an infallible, lethal bad-ass, seems to have carved his niche as the current go-to guy for B-movie action flicks. The beefy Brit once seemed like a promising heir to the ‘80s blockbuster action hero throne left vacant by Sly and Ah-nold, but with a few exceptions ("The Bank Job," "The Italian Job"), his filmography over the past decade compares more realistically to the likes of Jean-Claude Van Damme and Steven Seagal.

When "The Mechanic" was released in 1972, starring Charles Bronson as a professional hitman named Arthur Bishop and Jan-Michael Vincent as his protégé, Steve McKenna, the world of professional killers hadn’t yet become a staple of American cinema. In the almost four decades since, that is far from the case. A slew of imitators have followed, some good ("The Professional," "Grosse Pointe Blank") and some not so good ("Assassins," "Hitman").

Described as a European flavored, romantic road-trip drama, "Here" is the latest effort from filmmaker and music video director Braden King (he's worked with Sonic Youth, Chan Marshall, Will Oldham, Tortoise, Low, Yo La Tengo and Sparklehorse among others) and it boasts some strong talent.

Calls Woody Harrelson's Performance "Stone Cold, Insane"One of the many films that featured in our recently posted Most Anticipated piece was the reuniting of director Oren Moverman with his "The Messenger" stars Ben Foster and Woody Harrelson for the cop drama "Rampart" which shot late last year. Unfortunately, word from Foster now predicts a 2012 unveiling for the film rather than later this year, possibly lining the team up for a return to Sundance.

We were little worried about Ben Foster for a moment. He's going to be starring in the upcoming Jason Statham thing "The Mechanic" and he recently signed on to the pretty average-sounding thriller "Contraband" with Mark Wahlberg -- we were beginning to wonder if the Foster we knew from "The Messenger" and "3:10 to Yuma" was gone. Nope, no need to panic yet.

CBS Films is hoping to start of 2011 on solid footing after a dreadful 2010 that feature box office bombs like "Extraordinary Measures," "The Back-Up Plan" and "Faster" stinking up multiplexes. Enter Jason Statham. Pretty much playing the same guy he plays in every movie, he stars in "The Mechanic" and it now has a fresh red-band trailer.
