Even if we wouldn't say he's quite cracked it yet, we've got a lot of respect for the way that Zac Efron is trying to establish himself as a proper grown-up adult actor. After all, the "High School Musical" series would be an albatross for many, but Efron's quietly been banging out a diverse mix of parts, and while things like "The Paperboy" and "At Any Price" haven't quite paid off yet, he's heading in the right direction. The actor's got several promising projects in the can already, including rom-com "Are We Officially Dating?," JFK ensemble drama "Parkland" and Seth Rogen/Nick Stoller comedy "Townies," and now, hot on the back of signing on to Eran Creevy's "Autobahn," the actor's just lined up thriller "Narc." Sounding a bit like a laugh-free "21 Jump Street," the project's being described as a based-in-fact, college-set version of "Donnie Brasco," and will see the actor play a fratboy who's busted for cocaine possession, and who agrees to become an informant to avoid jail time. The film's set up at Fox

It's been a while since we've heard from Mira Nair. The celebrated director behind "Salaam Bombay!," "Monsoon Wedding" and "The Namesake" flopped pretty hard in 2009 with the tepid prestige pic "Amelia" and she's been laying low since. Or so we thought. She's not only already set the cast for her next film, it's already in front of cameras.

From its empty soul to its poorly framed shots ready for pan-and-scan conversion, “Something Borrowed” seems primed to play on Saturday afternoons on E!, sandwiched between reruns of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” and “Bridalplasty.” Based on the chick-lit hit of the same name by Emily Giffin, this story is a hollow one, filled with unlikable characters and dialogue from someone who likely quotes wisdom from Cosmo. If you thought that “Sex and the City 2” had too much substance, this is the movie for you.

Yep, it's gonna be one of those tedious rom-coms. You know the kind. The sort where the entire movie wouldn't exist if the protagonist would just say what they actually feel instead of being too shy/scared/stupid/insecure. Such is the case with "Something Borrowed," which has a new trailer that telegraphs the entire movie in every annoying detail.

Yes, its yet another project linked to James Franco who seems to be spending his time between classes, just calling up producers in Hollywood and chatting with them about projects that pique his curiosity.

Dear Gael García Bernal, Why? Why? Did you need the money? Did you lose a bet? Did you do it as a dare? Whatever the reason, you have shattered our little hearts by agreeing to star in this abomination of a romcom, "A Little Bit of Heaven" with Kate Hudson. Dude, you are so much fucking better than this.
