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.

23-year-old actor Michael Angarano is more than just a face in the crowd of thirty-odd young studs that crops up whenever a new superhero or tween franchise is announced. After turning heads with minor roles in “Almost Famous” and “Seabiscuit,” the Brooklyn-born thesp eventually graduated to lead roles in homegrown superhero flick “Sky High” and eccentric Jared Hess movie “Gentleman Broncos.” However, nothing prepared anyone for his transformative comedic turn in “Ceremony,” which saw Angarano playing Sam, a manic and insecure children’s author who has seen a few too many Wes Anderson movies and read maybe a bit too much J.D. Salinger.

Young Filmmaker Talks About Making His First Feature, And Being Comfortable With His Influences And Own SkinWhile "Ceremony" is likely to be the introduction for most to the work of Max Winkler, many have been tipped off to his talent after seeing him work with Michael Cera and Clark Duke in the appropriate titled (and very funny) webseries, "Clark & Michael," which you can check out here. But that's just the tip of the iceberg. Winkler has been making his name on a number of brewing projects including "The Adventurer's Handbook" which he co-wrote with pal Jonah Hill and frequent collaborator Matt Spicer, not to mention being drafted with the latter to write "Whispers in Bedlam" for Jason Reitman and scoring the selling the pitch for "First Man" that has Johnny Knoxville attached. Suffice it to say the 27-year-old son of Henry Winkler has all the makings of a filmmaker that should be squarely on your radar.

Production Aiming To Get Underway In JulyYeah, so you might have heard that Kevin Smith debuted his latest film "Red State" at Sundance recently. Anyway, chuffed by the experience of going out on his own and making a film, the director is eager to recreate that experience by bringing back the principals for his next and reportedly last film, "Hit Somebody."
