AFI Fest kicks off today with Clint Eastwood's "J. Edgar" getting its world premiere, and the lineup for the next week includes an array of awards season heavy hitters including "The Artist," "Carnage," "Shame," "Rampart" and more. However, just like last year, they've got one film yet to be announced. Festival-goers in 2010 were pleasantly surprised with a secret screening of David O. Russell's "The Fighter," and on Sunday night another mystery movie will be unveiled, one that should definitely get the adrenaline pumping of everyone in the room.

Film About The Amanda Knox Trial Also Still In The WorksWhen you're an independent filmmaker like Michael Winterbottom, who generally has a few projects on the go at any given time, it usually comes down financing and support to determine which film goes next and what remains on the backburner. And sometimes those decisions are made lightning fast. When we spoke to the director's frequent producing partner Andrew Eaton at the BFI London Film Festival last month, he was reserved about "Bailout" getting made saying, "That’s a juggling act between Jack Black’s schedule and whether we can do enough pre-sales to make it happen." Well, they need not worry. Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions has landed the film for North America, South America, Australia, South Africa and Scandinavia and more kicking "Bailout" into gear with shooting begin in January.

Also Features 2 Brand New Songs From JónsiCameron Crowe has always been known for his keen ear for music, curating each of his films with a carefully selected soundtrack, but the forthcoming "We Bought A Zoo" marks the first time he's handed over the reins to a single artist. Over the summer it was revealed that Sigur Rós frontman Jónsi would be tuning up the film, but little did we know, Crowe himself would be lending an assist for one of the pieces for the movie.

We once described rising Australian actor Joel Edgerton as the "thinking man's Sam Worthington" and, while as unfair as that may sound, we're thinking Hollywood is starting to share our views on him as well.

Also Shows Off Some Of Jonsi's Score For The MovieWell, after the first trailer for Cameron Crowe's "We Bought a Zoo" arrived last month, we promptly counted it out of the Oscar race but it looks like with a meaty December release date and a big hearted story featuring cute animals, this is aiming to be Fox's "Marley & Me" for this year, though probably without the three-hankie ending. A new international trailer has arrived for the movie and in addition to a good amount of new scenes and footage -- most significantly a moment involving Patrick Fugit evaluating Matt Damon's character -- we also get a pretty nice preview of Sigur Ros frontman Jonsi's score the movie which sounds appropriately...Jonsi-esque.

The First Cut Has Just Been Delivered To Warner Bros.While 2011 has been marked by the number of high profile projects that have been iced ("The Dark Tower" and "At the Mountains of Madness" among the biggest), Alfonso Cuarón miraculously avoided the same fate when last year, his ambitious sci-fi tale "Gravity" looked like it was about to crash against the rocks.

We had our doubts. A comedic take on the '80s TV drama "21 Jump Street" from the “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs” helmers Chris Miller and Phil Lord? Would this even work? The answer is, fuck yes.

So, yeah, they made a fourth one of these. You guys keeping seeing them, so they'll keep making 'em but as this point, the franchise is lagging both in number and financially behind Milla Jovovich's "Resident Evil" series (the fifth one is already filming). But since both are from Screen Gems, and still turn a profit, the studio probably doesn't care that much.
