Madame Bovary Mia Wasikowska
The American Film Market kicks off next week, which means there's going to be a lot of buyers hustling a lot of movies, and distributors and financiers look for product to put their cash into. And that means folks writing the cheques will want to see something first. And since many of these movies are mid-production or just getting started, pictures will have to suffice.

Though Netflix and an increased cable presence have allowed for British comedies to cross the Atlantic, find new audiences, and vice-versa, that exchange still hasn't stopped the practice of ungodly U.S. remakes from happening. “Coupling” turned into a ghastly form in 2003, while the McG-produced remake of “Spaced” never even made it past an embarrassingly botched pilot. The latest case sits with “The Inbetweeners,” an E4 comedy that gained a massive U.K. following and a successful film adaptation. And while a 2012 MTV remake only ran stateside for one season, but that hasn't stopped the forces that be from attempting another version.

Since leading the ill-fated Mike Judge-helmed “Idiocracy” in 2006, Luke Wilson hasn’t had a high-profile gig -- even something like “Middle Men” barely hit theaters -- but now the actor has snatched a role in the Black List-approved “A Many Splintered Thing.” First-time director Justin Reardon will helm the film, described as being in the same spirit of “Amelie” and “(500) Days Of Summer.” Wilson will appear alongside a talented ensemble that includes Anthony Mackie, Aubrey Plaza, Philip Baker Hall, Topher Grace and Giovanni Ribisi with Chris Evans and Michelle Monaghan as the leads in the the story of a man (Evans) who has given up on love, until he meets an engaged woman (Monaghan) at a charity dinner, by posing as a philanthropist. He pretends to be her platonic friend, all while trying to win her for himself, away from a man who doesn't like going on dates.

After breaking out with his acting debut in "After School," Ezra Miller reaffirmed his talent to the film world last year with Lynne Ramsey's "We Need To Talk About Kevin" where he went toe-to-toe with Tilda Swinton. While he was briefly linked to the failed blockbuster "Akira" project, Miller continues to make interesting choices, now lining up a starring role in an adaptation of Gustave Flaubert's "Madame Bovary" opposite Mia Wasikowska, with Paul Giamatti also confirmed.

Oh boy, another musty dusty literary adaptation? Even with our girl Mia Wasikowska (who is in danger to becoming the young go-to girl for period movies with "Jane Eyre" and "Albert Nobbs" under her belt), we can't say we're overly excited. Though, this film could turn out to be something a bit different.
