Michael Fassbender has so many projects coming up—"Slow West," "Macbeth," "Assassin's Creed," an untitled Terrence Malick film—we nearly forgot about "The Light Between Oceans." And shame on us because it's directed by Derek Cianfrance, who has knocked it out of the park with his last two films, "Blue Valentine" and "The Place Between The Pines." And the project is adding another exciting name.

Frank Grillo, Intersection
The idea of a remake of Indonesian action sensation "The Raid" without the bonkers, surely-someone-must-have-died action genius of director Gareth Evans, or with the presumably lax approach to health and safety that's the only way some of the insanity of the film (and its even crazier sequel) could have been pulled off, seems somewhat pointless. But nevertheless, Screen Gems have been pressing on, with "Red Hill" and "The Expendables 3" helmer Patrick Hughes attached to direct, and they just made a hire that means we might have a sliver of interest in the prospect.

It appears the personal and professional will soon combine for Sean Penn: just yesterday we found out he’s prepping a new directorial effort entitled “The Last Space”—reportedly set within the refugee camps of Sudan, Liberia—and also that “Blue is The Warmest Color” actress Adèle Exarchapoulos snagged a small role. It’s only gaining steam however, as Penn has chosen a fellow humanitarian for the lead in the secretive project.

Everything Nice Charlize Theron
If the Internet can’t convince Eon Productions to cast Idris Elba as James Bond, perhaps his new role can land him a villain gig in Bond 24. Elba is set to voice Shere Khan in Disney and Jon Favreau's take on “The Jungle Book.” Favreau will use live-action and VFX to bring the story to the screen. Expect to see this sooner than later as Disney is neck and neck with Warner Bros. with their own version of Rudyard Kipling’s classic.

With the future for “The Girl Who Played With Fire” still uncertain — “Seven” screenwriter Andrew Kevin Walker was reported to have taken a crack at the script last summer — and only “Bond 24” to look forward to, Daniel Craig doesn’t have a lot on his plate but Variety reports that’s about to change.
