Jeremy Irvine & Phoebe Fox In 'The Woman In Black: Angel Of Death'
The newly revitalized Hammer Films have had some big successes ("Let Me In," "The Woman In Black"), less well received productions ("The Resident," "The Quiet Ones") and for their next trick, the studio is hoping a sequel can put another movie into the win column. The Daniel Radcliffe-starring "The Woman In Black" was a surprise critical and audience hit when it was released a couple of years ago, and while Radcliffe hasn't returned for the followup, "The Woman In Black: Angel Of Death" is aiming to carry on the spooky flame.

Brie Larson,21 Jump Street
An array of casting news has filtered down today, so let's just get to it. First up, Brie Larson has signed up to star in the adaptation of Emma Donoghue's critically acclaimed, best-selling novel "Room." Lenny Abrahamson, who broke out with "What Richard Did" and has the already hotly buzzed "Frank" on the way, will direct this one about "a woman kidnapped as a teenager who has been held captive for years in a tiny room where she lives with her 5-year-old son Jack. To the boy, Room is the only home he’s ever known."

"It was 1984 and I saw [Jim Jarmusch's] 'Stranger Than Paradise' and [Andrei Tarkovsky's] 'The Sacrifice' in 24 hours, and they both left such an impression on me," Jonathan Teplitzky, the director of "The Railway Man" starring Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman, recently said in an indie directors round-table chat with THR. " 'Stranger Than Paradise' showed how [feasible] it was to make a film, so simply and so distinctively. And with 'The Sacrifice,' it can be about anything. It can be about what you dream, what you think." For interested cinephiles, those are some choice films to reference, which makes "The Railway Man" potentially an intriguing film beyond just the star-studded cast that also includes Jeremy Irvine, Stellan Skarsgård and Hiroyuki Sanada.

Gotta admit, we sort of totally forgot about this movie entirely. After playing TIFF to rather muted notice last fall, and being released all over the place elsewhere in the world, Mike Newell's "Great Expectations" is finally seeing release in stateside theaters. And well, it's certainly very costume drama-esque as you might expect.

Jeremy Irvine
Whether the success of “The Woman in Black” was down to it being Daniel Radcliffe’s first big post-'Potter' role or simply a yearning from audiences for old-school chilling horror, it performed well enough at the box office ($127 million worldwide) to justify a sequel. Anyone who saw the first film will know that a direct sequel wouldn’t be the easiest thing to pull off, so “The Woman in Black: Angel of Death” will pick up 40 years later during World War II at Eel Marsh House, and will focus on a new couple being haunted by the titular ghoul.

As studios gear up to fill the space left by the now finished "Twilight" franchise -- "Beautiful Creatures" from Warner Bros. arrives next month and Sony's "The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones" hits in the summer -- another contender is on the way, but from the studio who brought you Edward and Bella in the first place. Summit is gearing up "Divergent" with Shailene Woodley, and it's time to find her a co-star.

Tackling an adaptation of a 150-year-old Charles Dickens novel, especially one that has already been brought to the screen at least a dozen times in various forms, is a daunting task indeed. What do you change? What do you freshen up? Well, if you're Mike Newell, who directed a new adaptation, the answer to those last two questions (at least based on this new clip) is "very little." The brief clip of the BBC co-production, shows Jeremy Irvine as Pip and Ralph Fiennes as the mysterious Magwitch, in what appears to be their first meeting since encountering each other many years before and it is, more or less, exactly what you'd expect.

It's the centenary year of famed author Charles Dickens and he's having a bit of a moment. The writer was dipped into the world of fanboys when Christopher Nolan revealed during press rounds for "The Dark Knight Rises" that "A Tale Of Two Cities" was an influence on the Batman film, while it seems filmmakers are falling over themselves to bring "Great Expectations" to the big screen. Again. Last year, Brit viewers got a miniseries starring Ray Winstone and Gillian Anderson, and now, less than twelve months later, another take on the story is on the way.
