Probably in an attempt to get everyone to stop talking about his falling out with Bruce Willis, Sylvester Stallone has spilled the beans on a few more additions to his "Expendables 3." Officially joining Jackie Chan, Wesley Snipes, Milla Jovovich and recent additions Harrison Ford and, uh, Kellan Lutz, are a pair of names who've been rumored for a while, in the shape of Mel Gibson and Antonio Banderas. The still-somewhat-disgraced Gibson will play the adversary in the film (as he does in the upcoming "Machete Kills"), while there's no firm word if Banderas will be on the side of the angels or the devils. Shooting is apparently getting underway any day now, so expect to see this in theaters this time next year. [Coming Soon]

It has been a long time since Australian director Fred Schepisi has been behind camera. His last effort was the acclaimed HBO mini-series "Empire Falls" and before that his last feature film was 2003's forgettable "It Runs In The Family." But the director is back, and we'll soon see if he still has his mojo and he heads to TIFF with the acerbic looking drama "Eye Of The Storm" and the first trailer certainly shows some promise.

A biopic based on the life and times of Spanish artist Salvador Dali is reportedly in the works with Philippe Mora writing and directing, Alan Cumming to star as the surrealist and Judy Davis as his great love, Gala -- all, of course, in 3D.

Michael Gambon, Bill Nighy, Judy Davis & Ralph Fiennes Also In Cast It seems like a little while since we've had a really smart, compelling spy thriller -- there have been some valiant, but flawed efforts, like Billy Ray's "Breach" and the Don Cheadle vehicle "Traitor," but for the most part, the genre swings between ludicrous, rubber-mask filled efforts like "Salt," and the frankly dull "The Good Shepherd." But next year has the absurdly promising "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" in the pipeline, and it looks like another British effort is joining it.
