James Cox ('Wonderland') DirectingTalk about your random casting. "True Blood" star Anna Paquin, Ryan Phillippe and Luke Wilson have joined the cast of the Nu Image/Millennium Films dramedy "Straight A's." Directing the picture is James Cox, who hasn't helmed a feature-length motion-picture since 2003's "Wonderland" starring Val Kilmer as the infamous porn star John Holmes.

Colin Farrell OutIn the works for about a year now, there is a whole lot of fresh movement on "Up In The Air" scribe Sheldon Turner's directorial debut "By Virtue Fall." A fresh cast is now in place, and while one big star who has been circling seems to be on board, one has also departed.

Bruce Willis & Ryan Phillippe Shamed50 Cent is the gift that keeps on giving. Last year, the rapper/actor made a 10-picture, $200 million deal between his Cheetah Vision production banner and Hedge Fund Film Partners which appears to be resulting in a bunch of films shot on the cheap with no attention given to any details or to even the most basic tenets of filmmaking. Case in point: "Things Fall Apart." But this time Bruce Willis and Ryan Phillippe were somehow conned into this latest fiasco, "Set Up," which now has a trailer and we have no idea who keeps getting hired to cut these (though we secret hope Fiddy is doing it himself).

Film festivals are a strange animal. With hundreds of films to look to look at, it's inevitable that some will get unfairly ignored or overlooked such as the recent "Cracks" which premiered at TIFF in 2009 and is only hitting theaters now. And such is the case with "The Bang Bang Club." It premiered at TIFF last year to virtually zero pre-screening buzz and then promptly fell off. We certainly didn't get a chance to check it out, but judging by the latest trailer we can see why word was a bit muted.

There’s not a lot of information yet, but a report about Justin Long’s new production company revealed that he would be starring in a new film, “Chronicle,” alongside John Hawkes and Ryan Philippe. According to the Gramery Park Pictures website, Mickey Rourke, Helena Bonham Carter, Kate Mara, Danny Masterson and Vincent D'Onofrio were in discussions to join the cast as of last month, but no word if they will be signing on or have simply moved on (our guess is probably the latter).

Also Cast In 'The Expendables 2,' So We Guess That's Now Moving Ahead TooRandy Couture's Hollywood career has come a long way, relatively speaking, since appearing as Fighter #8 in "Cradle 2 the Grave." This summer he had his biggest role to date alongside his fellow no-neck enthusiasts in "The Expendables," and now he's set to take his lumbering physique and cauliflower ears over to a new movie where he won't have to stretch his slim acting talents too much.

A new trailer for "The Lincoln Lawyer" has arrived and as much as we want this to be some decent escapist fare and as much as we like the potboilers by Michael Connelly, our expectations for this one are quickly diminishing.

Jenna Dewan Tatum aka Mrs. Channing Tatum Also JoinsWe kind of feel for Ryan Philllippe. He's a very talented actor who always seems to get saddled with projects that sound good on paper but end up disappointing for underperforming or both. After "Flags Of Our Fathers," Phillippe starred in a trio of non-starters "Breach," "Stop-Loss" and "Franklyn" and then popped up in a comedic turn in the underrated "MacGruber." But now he's set to take a page out of the Matt Dillon School Of Role Choices.
