Things are looking up for Jesse Eisenberg. Last week saw “The Social Network” star cast as Lex Luthor in Zack Snyder’s increasingly odd “Batman Vs. Superman”—or whatever it ends up being called—and this week sees one of his projects come back from the dead.

Well, here's a bit of bummer news, particularly for those who are fans of Joachim Trier and are aching to see what the talented filmmaker does next. The director behind "Reprise" and "Oslo, August 31st" had been busy preparing what would be his biggest movie yet, an English language film entitled "Louder Than Bombs" featuring a great cast — Jesse Eisenberg, Isabelle Huppert, Gabriel Bryne — with plans to shoot this fall. But alas, it's not to be...

One filmmaker who's a favorite around these parts is Norwegian Joachim Trier. The writer/director's first two features "Reprise" and "Oslo, August 31st" are impressive and expressive works, and so when it was announced well over a year ago that his next effort would be his English-language debut, we were very excited. In fact, this script was ready to go after "Reprise," but delays held it up, so Trier shot 'Oslo' instead. But it appears the wait has been worth it as he's assembled a solid trio to lead the movie.

Since leaving his post as the leading man in Michael Bay's 'Transformers' trilogy, Shia LaBeouf has seemingly turned his back on blockbusters and made some admirable choices to work with names like Oliver Stone, John Hillcoat and Robert Redford with a teaming with the Danish king of controversy Lars von Trier also in the works. Another project that the actor has recently finished shooting is "The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman," the feature debut of commerical director Fredrik Bond.

We're unabashed fans of Norwegian helmer Joachim Trier here at The Playlist. Having studied at the National Film and Television School in the UK, Trier made a storming feature debut in 2006 with "Reprise," which followed two young aspiring novelists (and which we named our favorite film of 2008 when the film finally hit the U.S.), and finally followed it up last year with the excellent "Oslo, August 31," which saw him reteam with star Anders Danielsen Lee, who played a heroin addict fresh out of rehab.
