Tonys Go Hollywood, Red's Logan Pens Miraculous Year, Nolan Hates 3D, It's a Wrap for Harry Potter
The Tonys went Hollywood Sunday night, from winners Denzel Washington and Viola Davis in best revival winner Fences to best featured actress and actor Scarlett Johansson and Eddie Redmayne, respectively, and Catherine Zeta-Jones as best actress (in musical revival A Little Night Music). The Tonys also favored two 50s-set shows as Memphis -- a rocking musical about underground Tennessee dance clubs and interracial love -- won best musical, and Red --starring Alfred Molina as artist Mark Rothko --won Best Play. Vanity Fair posted a gorgeous gallery of black and white portraits of select nominees.

Bourne #4, Green Lantern Sequel, Monsterpocalypse and Inception Spot

In Development: - Bourne #4 is coming. Tony Gilroy is back in the saddle to write The Bourne Legacy as a sequel, not prequel, to the franchise starring Matt Damon as Jason Bourne, as well as a "Bourne Bible." The film is not based on the book The Bourne Legacy (written by Eric Van Lustbader, not original novelist Robert Ludlum, who died in 2001) and is set for release in 2012. Damon says he won't do it unless director Paul Greengrass returns (Greengrass directed Ultimatum and Supremacy, while Doug Liman directed the 2002 kick-off The Bourne Identity). [Anne Thompson: I'd like to see Gilroy--in many ways the series' true creator, and a crackerjack director himself (Michael Clayton, Duplicity)-- do the honors. Would Damon work with him? After he sees the script, maybe.]

Composer Zimmer Talks Sherlock Holmes, Inception, Dark Knight, It's Complicated
In many ways, the best thing about Sherlock Holmes is its score (released January 12), featuring exotic Hungarian and gypsy instruments. It's one of about a hundred movie scores delivered by prolific German composer Hans Zimmer, who has earned six Oscar nominations; he won for The Lion King in 1994. On February 2, he earned a seventh Oscar nomination for Sherlock Holmes.

Top 25 Active Directors: Did EW Get it Right?

EW loves lists like this one, the top 25 active directors, designed to inspire healthy debate. Did they get it right? And what do they mean by active, exactly? "Most talented, in-demand directors behind the camera today?" They're trying to have it both ways--it's a power list measuring fame, heat, influence and at the same time, a qualitative measure of talent.
