The American Film Market is in full swing at the moment, and back at the event in 2009, “The Electric Slide” was being shopped to potential buyers with a mocked up poster featuring its attached stars, Ewan McGregor and Carey Mulligan. Fast-forward three years and the film is back at the AFM where Myriad Pictures has taken on sales duties for the flick, which is now being top-lined by Jim Sturgess and Isabel Lucas.

Getting a film off the ground is no easy feat, and for a first time filmmaker, that task tends to be all the more difficult. However, for director Tristan Patterson, he's gotten off to a helluva start. His first film, the SXSW Best Documentary winner "Dragonslayer," has put him firmly on the map. We caught up with the film at IFFBoston and thought it was great, calling it a boundary pushing flick that created an authentic moviegoing experience. But what most people may not know is that Patterson was initially attached to make "Electric Slide" his film debut. The film had Ewan McGregor and Carey Mulligan set to star but as it goes, things didn't come together at the time. However, there is still life in the project. Last month, it was confirmed to still be in development (though Mulligan has moved on) and we recently caught up with Patterson at IFFBoston who indicated the film was still very much on this radar.

For over a century now, bank robbers have been an eternally popular choice of protagonists for film-makers: as we saw when we looked at the genre last year, countless great pictures have been made centering around heists, and the success of Ben Affleck's "The Town" proved that audiences still love to see armed robbery on their screens. There's more caper pictures in the works -- most notably Brett Ratner's comedy "Tower Heist," with Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy, and now two rival projects based around bank robbing look to be on the way.
