It's not exactly a surprise that the guy who created a serial killer tire movie "Rubber," and turned a lost dog into a surreal journey for his upcoming "Wrong," has gone ahead and put together yet another oddball goof. Quentin Dupieux keeps churning out the strange and weird, and his latest, "Wrong Cops" is yet another dip into the oddball. But wait, haven't you heard of this one for a while now? Well, yes...

Aside from a brief appearance in Mark Webber's "The End Of Love," it has been two long years since we've last seen Michael Cera on the big screen. Of course, that was in Edgar Wright's "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World," and while 2013 will see him once take on the role that made him famous, that of George Michael Bluth in "Arrested Development," he's got two feature projects that will likely shake up his image. He's been hanging out a lot lately with "The Maid" director Sebastian Silva, and they've been productive. The comedy "Crystal Fairy" has already been slotted for the Sundance Film Festival, but now the other one is being called up, the much higher-profile "Magic Magic."

Steve McQueen has quite an abundance of talent at his disposal for "Twelve Years A Slave" but now has more two more additions in TV staple Alfre Woodard and newcomer Lupita Nyong'o. Woodard will play a former slave who has risen through the caste system while Nyong'o plays the object of both affection and cruelty of Master Epps, to be played by Michael Fassbender. The film, of course, stars Chiwetel Ejiofor as Solomon Northup, a free black man who is tricked into slavery and faces a grueling life under several owners. Brad Pitt, Scoot McNairy, Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Giamatti, Paul Dano, Sarah Paulson, Garrett Dillahunt, Ruth Negga and Adepero Oduye all co-star in the John Ridley co-scripted tale. Most anticipated for 2013? It's up there, no doubt. [THR]

While for many, the Cannes Film Festival means reading about it from afar, wishing all the buzzworthy films would arrive in theaters near you soon. But there's at least one entry this year that won't be exclusive to those on the Croisette. Edgy filmmaker Quentin Dupieux has ventured to the Directors' Fortnight sidebar with his short film "Wrong Cops," and just as it premiered in theaters there today, it landed online at the same time. How 2012.

While Cannes will be hosting all kinds of celebs this week as they walk down the red carpet, eat at restaurants where the final bill is our rent for the month and shop in the kind of fancy boutiques that we're not even allowed into, at least there will be the presence (cinematically, if not personally) of Quentin Dupieux and Marilyn Manson to shake things up. That's right, the shock rocker is the star of the French filmmaker's latest bonkers exursion "Wrong Cops" and a trailer has arrived. And yes, it's delightfully fucked up.

Well, in some alternate Quentin Dupieux universe, full of non-sequiturs and ironic detachment, this completely makes sense. Fresh off news of the Cannes Directors' Fortnight line-up earlier today, which listed Dupieux's short film "Wrong Cops" alongside many other exciting offerings, it seems the director found fit to reveal his star on Twitter.
