The Humbling Al Pacino Greta Gerwig
Okay, nearly three years ago, word first surfaced that Al Pacino was looking to reteam with Barry Levinson for an adaptation of Philip Roth's "The Humbling." And that was pretty much the last we heard of it, but somewhere along the way, filming started and this thing was cast cast so either credit a secretive production or apologies for sleeping on this one.

Dwayne Johnson, it seems, cannot be contained by two dimensions alone. Variety is reporting that Johnson is returning to the 3D world with the earthquake movie “San Andreas” and reuniting with his “Journey 2: The Mysterious Island”—also in 3D!—director Brad Peyton for the 3D earthquake movie, “San Andreas." Or is it called “San Andreas 3D?” While Allan Loeb and Carlton Cuse both penned earlier drafts, the film will go into production with a script from “The Conjuring” duo Carey Hayes and Chad Hayes. The film will focus on Johnson as an estranged father trying to rescue his daughter after a massive quake at the titular fault.

As Damon Lindelof incurred with “Prometheus” the vitriolic fanbase appetizer to this weekend's Bat-activities, “Lost” co-showrunner Carlton Cuse must have felt pretty good with his decision to shun the spotlight after their show's end. However, as New Line has spent the last year putting together a new earthquake flick to no avail, Cuse finally looks ready to face the admittedly unknown quotient of disaster film aficionados.

No stranger to film adaptations, John Grisham is set to get another check in the mail courtesy of Chris Columbus, who has officially signed on to write and direct the adaptation of the author's “Calico Joe.” The novel, released earlier this year, revolves around the world of baseball and involves a nearly fatal pitch thrown in August 24, 1973 and its implications 30 years later on both the batter, “Calico Joe” Caste, and the pitcher, Warren Tracey. Hopefully this film can match the quality of the last year’s baseball movie, “Moneyball.” [Variety]

"...veteran Hollywood screenwriter"? Whoa, whoa there 24 Frames, let's not lose our minds when talking about Allan Loeb. This "veteran" only had his first screenplay produced four years ago ("Things We Lost In The Fire") and since than has become the highest paid hack in Hollywood, getting paid millions to deliver dreck like "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps," "The Dilemma," "The Switch" and "Just Go With It." Next year, the mediocrity continues as he's penned the '80s musical "Rock Of Ages" and the Kevin James MMA comedy (we're not fucking kidding) "Here Comes The Boom." The guy also has a number of projects in development, including one bonafide disaster.
