One of the films we were most excited about at the Toronto International Film Festvial was Alexandre Aja's "Horns," an adaptation of the devilish novel by Joe Hill (his father is some guy named Stephen King). With a terrific cast led by Daniel Radcliffe as a man who wakes up one day looking more Hellboy than human, and Juno Temple, it seemed like it could be a delightful horror-comedy that pushed both Aja (director of "Piranha 3D") and Radcliffe out of their comfort zones. Sadly, the movie has been met with mostly middling notices. Our interest is still piqued, especially after this first clip (also Aja still seems keen on doing his crazy "Cobra the Space Pirate").

Earlier this year at Sundance, Chilean director Sebastian Silva ("The Maid") made a splash with two very different movies. The first, "The Crystal Fairy," was a trippy road comedy that starred Michael Cera and Gabby Hoffman and saw a limited theatrical release this summer from IFC Films (read our review here). The other Silva joint was an equally trippy but far darker film that also co-starred Michael Cera called "Magic Magic," which will be released on DVD this week from Sony. It stars Juno Temple as a young girl who descends into madness while visiting her sister abroad (it involves many sleepless nights, hypnotism, a memorable use of a Knife song and finally some kind of witchcraft). We got to talk to Temple about what it was like working with Silva, what her reference points were for the character, and asked about what she's got coming next—Robert Rodriguez's "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For," Alexandre Aja's "Horns," and Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" retelling "Maleficent" (where she plays a tiny fairy).

She's already becoming an increasingly familiar face, but the next twelve months or so should see Juno Temple become pretty much inescapable. She's got roles from indies "Small Apartments" and "The Brass Teapot" to blockbusters "The Three Musketeers" and, of course, "The Dark Knight Rises." But first up for the 22-year-old British-born actress is "Dirty Girl," which opened on Friday, and stars the actress, along with Milla Jovovich, William H. Macy and Dwight Yoakam, in a 80s-set comedy about a promiscuous teen who runs away with her gay classmate to find her birth father.

If "Killer Joe" and his previous collaboration with playwright Tracy Letts, "Bug," are anything to go by, William Friedkin should consider never working with anyone else again; together, the films are easily the best things he's made since his 1970s heyday, and worlds away from the anonymous thrillers that he made in the 2000s.

Actress Stays Mum On 'The Dark Knight Rises,' But Says 'The Three Musketeers' "Fulfills A Childhood Fantasy"Youthful British actress Juno Temple has been turning heads for a few years now, in films from "Atonement" to Gregg Araki's "Kaboom," even coming out of the disastrous comedy "Year One" smelling of roses. We've had our eye on her for a while, but even we weren't prepared for how good she turned out to be in William Friedkin's "Killer Joe."

In recent years, film translations of stage hits haven't been as prevalent as they once were. You might get the occasional "Doubt" or "Rabbit Hole," for instance, but compared to the early days of the talkies, when a large proportion of movies were based on Broadway hits, it's been slim pickings; audiences and critics have learned that most attempts at stage-to-screen translation fail to make the material truly cinematic.

British actress Juno Temple (daughter of documentarian Julien) started out with memorable roles in “Atonement” and “Notes on a Scandal,” and she’s quickly made a name for herself on this side of the Atlantic too. She may have starred in Harold Raimis’ toxic “Year One,” but managed to nimbly sidestep the fallout from that project, in large part by nixing any expectations she might flower into an English Rose in the Keira Knightely stable, and getting her kit off in Gregg Araki’s spectacularly nuts “Kaboom” earlier in the year and landing a role in the upcoming “The Dark Knight Rises.”

Currently in a tight neck-and-neck race with Roland Emmerich's "Anonymous" to be the stupidest movie of the fall, "The Three Musketeers," which sees "Resident Evil" director Paul W.S. Anderson cunningly reboot Alexandre Dumas' legendary characters for the 21st century by trying to make it look as much like "Resident Evil" as humanly possible, is looming on the release schedule. We've already seen one truly terrible trailer for the film, and now, with the film's October release date coming closer, Summit have released the first one-sheet for the film, via Yahoo.

Now here's an interesting project that is newly on our radar thanks to Cannes. Just last week, we learned that Michael Cera would join "The Maid" director Sebastian Silva for a thriller called "Magic Magic." Variety reported yesterday that three lovely ladies -- Juno Temple, Emily Browning and Catalina Sandino Moreno -- will be on hand to work with him. All we know about the film so far is that a girl vacationing with her friends in Chile slowly starts to lose her mind. It's not been made clear who will be taking the lead role, but judging from the billing and her rising star status, it's more than likely going to be Temple.

We like Juno Temple very much. She's shone in indies like "Cracks" and "Greenberg," and we're clearly not the only ones who've noticed -- the actress has been cast in a key role by Christopher Nolan in "The Dark Knight Rises." We also like Michael Angarano very much. The actor's been appealing in smaller roles from "Almost Famous" to "Snow Angels," and really staked his claim as a leading man earlier in the year in Max Winkler's firmly enjoyable comedy "Ceremony." So we're positively delighted to reveal that the pair are teaming up for a new independent comedy.
