Trash, Rooney Mara
So the trailer for Stephen Daldry’s “Trash” is out there. Set in Brazil, it chronicles impoverished street kids who find themselves involved in a political scandal when they make a discovery in a garbage dump. Soon the trio are running from the cops and trying to right a terrible wrong. It stars Rooney Mara and Martin Sheen as an NGO worker and priest, respectively, and highlights a triad of young Brazilian boys played by Rickson Teves, Eduardo Luis and Gabriel Weinstein. And yes, these non-actor discoveries are actually the leads with the Americans providing the support (Brazilians Wagner Moura and Selton Mello also co-star).

 The 2015 Best Picture Contenders, Premature pics
The star of "Ghosts Of Girlfriends Past" and the singer from 30 Seconds Of Mars are Oscar winners, "12 Years A Slave" beat "Gravity," Adele Tazeem became the most famous non-existent person on the planet, and no one's stopped talking about selfies for about 72 hours. The streets of LA are now full of discarded The Weinstein Company interns, who haven't seen daylight for months and are only capable of saying the words "Everything you are and everything you have is 'cos of that butler." Yep, the 2013/2014 awards season has come to an end.

Wow, we guess it really was 2011 that Stephen Daldry's "Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close" hit theaters, and while he's been quiet on the cinematic front he's still been very busy. Daldry was a producer for the opening and closing ceremonies at the 2012 Summer London Olympics but his next movie has been cooking up for a while. Way back in the spring of 2011 it was revealed that Daldry was going to direct an adaptation of Andy Mulligan's book "Trash," with a script from Richard Curtis ("Love Actually," "About Time"). And unlike most movies that sit around for a couple of years, this one has now started to press forward.

Richard Curtis -- who wrote "Four Weddings and a Funeral, "Bridget Jones's Diary" and directed "Love Actually" and "Pirate Radio" -- has much to celebrate with his adaptation of Michael Morpurgo's "War Horse" hitting theaters later this month, but he's not taking any time off. He's already hard at work on his next adaptation of another children's book by a British author, this time to be directed by Stephen Daldry for Working Title. Andy Mulligan's second novel is called "Trash," but to Curtis, it's pure gold.

With the names Richard Curtis ("Love Actually," "Four Weddings And A Funeral") and Stephen Daldry ("The Hours," "Billy Elliot") attached, you might think this is automatic Oscar bait, but what they're cooking up together looks like more of an adventure film with some serious cred behind it.
