So, here's an interesting parallel. Earlier today we learned that Hollywood was deciding to reboot "The Naked Gun" and remake Sidney Lumet's "The Murder On The Orient Express," because that's the way things go today. And now, in a cruel irony, two much more original sounding projects have bitten the dust for a variety of reasons.

By now you've likely or hopefully heard of not only Dennis Wilson -- the drummer of the Beach Boys and a talented and unique musician in his own right -- but the film biopic based on his life called "The Drummer."

Even though she nabbed the biggest exposure and acclaim of her career to date thanks to her Oscar nominated turn in "Up In The Air," Vera Farmiga has continued to march to the beat of her own drum. She's eschewed big glossy tentpoles, using her post-Oscar heat to make her directorial debut "Higher Ground," as well as take roles in a diverse array of projects from high concept sci-fi ("Source Code"), indie dramedy (the recently Sundance premiered "Goats") and even a B-movie potboiler in this weekend's "Safe House." And the actress continues to take on new challenges, with her next gig providing another intriguing role.

At the end of last year, director Randall Miller and writer Jody Savin -- the duo behind the 2008 wine world comedy “Bottle Shock” -- announced they had begun development on two music centered movies. The first was an untitled film about the early days of American punk rock centered around the famed club CBGBs, while the other was “The Drummer: The Story of Dennis Wilson of the Beach Boys," which should be fairly self explanatory. The plan was for the CBGBs to go in front of the cameras first over the summer, but as things usually go in Hollywood, plans change and it now looks like the latter movie will gear up instead.
