Escape From New York The Guest
So, just before the long weekend, the folks over at Starlog dropped a short list of names they said were in the running to play the lead in the forever-brewing "Escape From New York" remake. It was essentially a wish list, featuring Charlie Hunnam, Jon Bernthal and Dan Stevens, and they noted none of the actors had read for the movie. However, even without a director attached, the site insisted an offer would go out to one of them soon, just don't expect Stevens to be the guy who gets a call.

A Walk Among the Tombstones
There's a lot of prestige fare coming in the weeks and months ahead, but sometimes you just need the comforting, gravelly voice of Liam Neeson to remind you that it's okay to see a movie that aspires to be nothing more and nothing less than pure genre material. Movie titles don't get more pulpy than "A Walk Among The Tombstones," and four clips and a batch of new images have arrived to show you what's been aggravating Neeson lately.

The Guest
He's got good looks and "Downton Abbey" charm. Who wouldn't let Dan Stevens into their house? But as it turns out in "The Guest," hospitality is not the best policy, and a new trailer for the movie that first rocked Sundance is here.

"The Guest"
While Dan Stevens made the decision to leave the acclaimed "Downton Abbey" a while ago, it's taken a while for his transition to the big screen to pay off dividends. "The Fifth Estate" was a flop, the indie "Summer In February" is best not talked about, but he's got some good things on the horizon. He has a prominent role in the upcoming Liam Neeson joint "A Walk Among The Tombstones," he's got a role in Tom McCarthy's "The Cobbler" and he's already made waves at Sundance this year with "The Guest." And the first teaser trailer is here.

A Walk Among The Tombstones
Yeah, we know, it's practically a routine at this point. Here's yet another movie, with yet another grizzled Liam Neeson, with more special skills that he uses to get the bad guys or whatever. But if there's one reason we're interested in "A Walk Among The Tombstones" it's this — Scott Frank.

Patrick Wilson, Jessica Biel, Imogen Poots, Blunderer
It’s a casting-o-rama Friday. With Cannes around the corner and the entire industry getting together for their quarterly wheeling and dealing, it means a lot of pacts are being made. Perhaps the most interesting is the adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s novel ‘The Blunderer.” She is obviously the writer of the Talented Mr. Ripley series and this non-Ripley-centered psychological thriller will star Patrick Wilson, Jessica Biel, Toby Jones and Imogen Poots. Andy Goddard will direct.

Ron Howard The Truth About The Harry Quebert Affair
Does the name Harry Quebert ring a bell? If you’re in Europe, it’s very likely: “The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair," a murder mystery novel written by Swiss author Joël Dicker, has become a publishing phenomenon, selling two million copies, landing just behind “Fifty Shades of Grey” on France’s bestseller charts, and winning the prestigious Grand Prix du Roman to boot. Stateside audiences can get a sense of the hype soon though, both because the book’s due out here next month, and also because of Ron Howard’s love of adaptations.

But almost as pleasurable as the films, is discovering new voices and talent, and seeing for the first time the performers and filmmakers whose careers will grow and rise long after the locals have reclaimed Park City for another year.
