By the time Oren Moverman was releasing "The Messenger," he knew his next film out would be "Rampart" and was on message about that -- but now that "Rampart" is upon us, things are a little less clear for the writer/director, who is still figuring out what's on his slate.

Listen, we love Brian Wilson and no doubt, the man is a genius. But let's also face some hard facts: he's not gonna deliver another Pet Sounds or even another Smile (and yes, that recently completed version is nice, but the original scope and vision is still somewhat lost to the sands of time). He was a pop songwriting whiz with an obsession for the craft that literally drove him mad. And while we applaud his ability to overcome various hardships to return, write and perform, this latest announcement doesn't particularly excite us.

Diablo Cody? You might want to sit down, we've got some bad news. Only at the start of the week, the "Juno" Oscar-winner told a panel at the L.A. Film Festival that her dream project was to write a biopic of legendary, troubled Beach Boys frontman Brian Wilson. Unfortunately for Cody, it seems that the project is moving forward, but she's nowhere to be seen, with another Oscar-nominee getting the scripting job instead.
