After many years of worthy, middlebrow would-be-Oscar pictures and my-daughter-is-in-peril films, it finally seems like Jodie Foster is ready to have fun again. Playing a character described as "a magnificent c**t" in Spike Lee's "Inside Man" seems to have loosened the Oscar-winning actress up a bit, with subsequent roles including kids' flick "Nim's Island," voicing Maggie Simpson, and trading barbs in Roman Polanski's upcoming "Carnage."

'A Good Old Fashioned Orgy' Will Take Up Your Labor DayThat's right folks, with the 2012 calendar already filling up, studios are now beginning to look two years down the road at 2013 and start planting their tentpole flags. "Elysium," "Oz The Great And Powerful," "Iron Man 3" and "Oblivion" are just some of the movies that have staked out their territory and now they're getting some company.

Earlier today, it was reported that Jeff Bridges was being courted for a role in Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris' upcoming film "He Loves Me." When we wrote the piece we figured Bridges' summer was free and there wasn't much in the way of a conflict with anything except perhaps promotional duties on his new album. Needless to say, we should've had our second cup of coffee as we totally forgot that last month, the actor entered negotiations to star opposite Ryan Reynolds in "R.I.P.D." after the long attached Zack Galifianakis bowed out.

With Zach Galifianakis unable to commit to the uncertain schedule of Ryan Reynolds for "R.I.P.D.," a replacement seems to have been found and it's a pretty big switch up.

What happens when you become hot in Hollywood is that you're able to attach yourself to a lot of projects, firstly to give yourself more options, and secondly because the material that gets sent your way tends to get better as your fame meter rises.

So, does this mean Ryan Reynolds won't be starring in "Deadpool"? Let's back up for a second. Comedian Zach Galifianakis is in talks to join Reynolds in "R.I.P.D.," an adaptation of the Dark Horse comic book about a pair of deceased detectives, one a recently murdered cop, the other a gunslinger from the Old West. Robert Schwentke ("Red," "The Time Traveler's Wife," "Flightplan") has been attached to direct since last fall.
