Captain America: The Winter Soldier
At one point a few years ago, Paul Greengrass was looking to make a biopic on legendary rocker Jimi Hendrix with Anthony Mackie in the lead. But when the Hendrix estate wouldn't sign off on the project, it fell apart and everyone moved on. But now, things are moving again. Mackie is back to play the axeman, with Ol Parker ("Now Is Good") at the helm of the movie "which chronicles the last nine days of Hendrix's life."

Though it’s been four years since Michael Mann last directed a feature film, it wasn’t for lack of trying. In addition to the currently-shooting -- and still-untitled -- international-cyber-crime thriller, Mann has the historical epic “Agincourt” and the long-gestating Robert Capa biopic, among countless others. Now The Wrap is reporting that the “Heat” director’s workload just got a little lighter.

With an Oscar now under his belt for "The Fighter" and proving his box office chops with Christopher Nolan's Batman movies, once Christian Bale has wrapped up "The Dark Knight Rises" he's going to have his pick of the litter with Variety laying out the numerous projects that are being sent his way. The trade says Bale will make no decisions until he's done with Batman in November -- and there is absolutely no mention of the Terrence Malick project that cropped up just a few days ago -- but if anything, these projects are interesting because, for the most part, they aren't tentpole-driven fare.

It has been a couple of years since Michael Mann's period gangster pic "Public Enemies" which, depending on who you ask, was either an underrated gem or (in this writer's opinion) a moody misfire. That's not to say Mann hasn't been busy. He's got the HBO horse racing drama led by Dustin Hoffman coming around the track and he's got more than a couple options for his next feature including the medieval tale "Agincourt" and another gangster pic in "Big Tuna" which "Up In The Air" writer Sheldon Turner was brought on to write last fall. In addition he's got the war photog biopic on Robert Capa in the works, and now, Mann has added another pic to his growing plate.
