So, both Venice and TIFF have unveiled their slates and...Cameron Crowe's "We Bought a Zoo" is nowhere to be seen. Granted, the film was only shot earlier this year and the ever busy Crowe -- who already released the Elton John doc "The Union" and is finalizing "Pearl Jam Twenty" for Venice -- is likely still getting the the film finished, so pics will have to do for now (until we get a trailer).

Zoe Saldana and Mélanie Thierry Also In Contention, Michael Fassbender Definitely OutIf there was every any doubt, after work like "Shallow Grave," "Trainspotting" and "Sunshine," Danny Boyle has firmly planted his feet among the A-list of directors: he's had two Best Picture nominees in a row, with the first of them, "Slumdog Millionaire" winning a Best Director Oscar; he's scored a big stage hit in "Frankenstein"; and he's been handed the responsibility for the opening ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics. While the latter will take up most of Boyle's next year, he's not going to be totally absent from the film world; it was announced a few months ago that he's planning a new heist thriller, "Trance," a remake of the 2001 British TV movie.

Mark Ruffalo & Jim Carrey Rumored As Possible LeadsWriter/Producer/Director Judd Apatow has a lot on his plate at any given moment and we'll forgive you if you forgot that way back in the summer of 2009 he revealed that among the many projects he was juggling, was a collaboration with a director who was making major waves with his indie musical at the time. "...we have a movie with John Carney, the guy who made 'Once' writing and directing, so hopefully, as soon as I'm done and have a little break, I can help people with their scripts and help to kick things around."

The Licensing International Expo, where movie studios court promotional partners to produce toys, Happy Meals and other unnecessary accessories to wring every cent out of potential franchises, is currently underway in Las Vegas, and a selection of early posters for big properties are starting to leak out. Most aren't really newsworthy (if you've ever wondered what a promotional one-sheet for "Men in Black 3" would look like, it involves the letters M, I and B, followed by the number 3, on a black background), but there's one exception.

Nick Cave, Warren Ellis, Atticus Ross & Shigeru Umebayashi Team For ScoreIt's pretty much impossible -- unless you are willing to completely forgo eating and sleeping -- to see everything at the Cannes Film Festival and there are always one or two films that you once you're back at home you regret having missed. And for us, that film is the Mexican thriller and midnight movie selection, "Days Of Grace." We were taken with the excellent trailer for the film and now that the soundtrack and score details have surfaced, we're kicking ourselves for not finding a way to work it into our schedule.
