Black Snake Moan Craig Brewer Justin Timberlake
Director Craig Brewer knows his way around music-centered flicks. He broke out with rapper tale "Hustle & Flow," brought swamp stomping blues to the big screen with "Black Snake Moan" and made the kids fight for their right to dance in the "Footloose" remake. And now he's going back to the golden era of pop for another music movie.

After what seems like years and years, it appears that we're finally on the verge of something that's been in the works for a while: the arrival of Ryan Gosling as a fully fledged, honest-to-god movie star. The actor might have captured teen hearts in "The Notebook" and picked up an Oscar nomination for his astonishing performance in "Half Nelson," but he's spent the past half-decade since firmly avoiding tentpoles, landing mostly in indie fare like "Lars and the Real Girl" and the wonderful "Blue Valentine," with only one studio outing, the immediately forgotten Anthony Hopkins thriller "Fracture," in the last seven years.
