"They're practically licking my body outside," Kate Bosworth says to her husband James Marsden in Rod Lurie's controversial remake of Sam Peckinpah's "Straw Dogs." Controversial because "Straw Dogs," an incredibly haunting and challenging domestic drama and psychological thriller by Peckinpah, is (rightfully) considered a masterpiece. So many have asked, what's the point in remaking it? The original is an amazing examination at masculinity and male emasculation -- in that sense the latter point is almost a cautionary horror tale for men.

Well, we'll give this one points for bonkers casting because when you have a movie where James Marsden plays Charles Manson that's...something. But we're getting ahead of ourselves.

There's been a lot of movement surrounding the Farrelly Brothers' remake of "The Three Stooges," starting last year when the project moved from MGM to Fox, getting a fresh cast (Sean Penn, Jim Carrey and Benicio Del Toro were attached in the long-gestating earlier incarnation). Just last month, Johnny Knoxville was supposed to have Moe nailed down, but that turned out to be just a rumor. But the first cast member has now been locked down. EW reports that Will Sasso has officially been cast as Curly (recent reports pegged him as Moe).

Belgium: a nation known, in the US at least, more for its waffles than for its cinema. In recent years, the Dardenne Brothers have made some waves (and how!), but for the most part, the country's probably best known in the film world for 1992's "Man Bites Dog," and as being the birthplace of Jean-Claude Van Damme. Not that they're incapable of producing a homegrown hit: the thriller "Loft" became the biggest-grossing Flemish-language film of all time when it was released back in 2008, and now it looks like it's heading for a remake.
