While he's done some other lower key pictures, the ones director John Carney is best known for involve song, and he's sticking to his strength. The "Once" helmer will get behind the camera for "Sing Street," with none other than Bono and The Edge to write some original songs for the picture.

We don’t envy makers of techno thrillers. Go too tech-savvy and you lose most people who don’t know anything about technology except that the best way to fix their gadgets is to turn them off and then back on again (guilty). Go too simplistic and there’s no real hook to your story beyond the pretty people and a heart-pounding score. Either extreme also carries the pitfall of being laughed at in a decade or even just a few years. Remember “The Net”? All that said, the bland, boring “Paranoia” does little to distinguish itself and isn’t good (or even enjoyably bad enough) to be passable even as Saturday afternoon cable fodder. And we say this as people who will sit through “Deep Blue Sea” every time it's on.

It was just over a week ago when director Robert Luketic revealed that, with the hesit flick "Brilliant" starring Gerard Butler a bit further off than he thought, he was now looking at two possibilities for his next film. One was a revenge thriller with Zhang Ziyi and the other was something with Liam Hemsworth. Well, one of them is moving forward, and it has a helluva cast.

Robert Luketic doesn't seem to inspire as much vitriol from fans that the likes of McG or Shawn Levy seem to, but looking at his back-catalogue his cinematic sins aren't inconsiderable. Maybe it's down to his first film, the really rather fun "Legally Blonde," but since then he's made "Win a Date With Tad Hamilton!," "Monster in Law," "21" (which this writer must admit to having a soft spot for), and his latest two films have been the irredeemable "The Ugly Truth" and "Killers," both starring Katherine Heigl.

Robert Luketic's film career has been a decidedly downward trajectory. He made a big splash helming the better-than-it-deserved-to-be Reese Witherspoon comedy "Legally Blonde" and ever since has made one bad picture after another, culminating in a double whammy of awful Katherine Heigl romcoms, "The Ugly Truth" and last year's abysmal "Killers." But it looks like Luketic is looking to change things up for his next picture.
