2010 certainly wasn’t a lackluster year for film, perhaps that’s why “Shortbus” helmer John Cameron Mitchell’s emotionally gripping “Rabbit Hole” was seemingly swept aside. Telling the story of a grieving couple coming to terms after their young son dies in a horrific accident, it was a heartbreaking tale that we liked quite a bit, and so we were pleased to hear last February that Kidman would be teaming up again with “Rabbit Hole” producers for the familial comedy-drama “The Family Fang.” Now it looks as if producers are hoping to add a little more of what made their previous film work so well, in the form of a script by “Rabbit Hole” playwright and screenwriter David Lindsay-Abaire.

What better way to come out of bankruptcy than with a whole bunch of blockbuster films and remakes? That's the plan MGM is taking, backing "The Hobbit," "James Bond 23" and “Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters.” And though they denied it at the time, earlier this year it was revealed that the studio was dusting off a bunch of old movies for new versions with "Robocop," "Mr. Mom," "The Idolmaker," "Carrie" and "Poltergeist" were in various stages of development. For "The Idolmaker," Ryan Gosling has already stepped in and out of the director's chair while "Carrie" now has a writer on board. And it looks like "Poltergeist" is seeking a writer too.

Jude Law, Alec Baldwin, Isla Fisher Also Among Cast, Leonardo DiCaprio Out; 'Rabbit Hole' Scribe David Lindsay-Abaire Penning The ScreenplayFor over a decade now, DreamWorks Animation have been consistently behind Pixar in their output: films like of "Shark Tale," "Monsters Vs. Aliens" and the "Shrek" sequels substitute star voices, bombastic action sequences and already-past-their-sell-by-date pop culture gags for heart and soul, to increasingly diminishing returns. But, to their credit, the company seem keen to change things, bringing on big creative names to aid their newer projects: Guillermo Del Toro will serve as executive producer on many of the company's new films, and top-flight writers like Charlie Kaufman and Noah Baumbach are writing sequels to "Kung Fu Panda" and "Madagascar."
