Greta Gerwig and Joel Kinnaman -- two actors who have been working mostly in indie/foreign fare to date -- are making big strides toward more mainstream recognition. The former already did the WB comedy "Arthur" last year with Russell Brand, and later this year, she'll feature in Woody Allen's "Nero Fiddled" and is currently lensing the HBO series "The Corrections" with Noah Baumbach. As for the latter, he's on the AMC series "The Killing," featured in the climactic showdown in "Safe House" and was just named MGM's "RoboCop." But this summer, they'll both appear in the Fox Searchlight romantic drama/comedy "Lola Versus."

So much for those rumors of Michael Fassbender or Russell Crowe (the latter of which was recently debunked anyhow). It looks like neither of those two stars will be leading the new “RoboCop” remake that Brazilian helmer José Padilha (“Elite Squad”) will be directing.

With the year winding down, it looks like executives at Warner Bros. have been looking at the year ahead and wondering WTF have they greenlit. Just yesterday word arrived that they were putting Alex Proyas' expensive, 3D, motion-capture adaptation of "Paradise Lost" on hold to get the budget and script under control. And now, another high profile movie may be getting the axe altogether.

One down, one to go. Just over a week after it was revealed “Game of Thrones” and “The Killing” stars Kit Harington and Joel Kinnaman (respectively) were the frontrunners for "Arthur & Lancelot." One part has been locked down.
