    Brad Pitt To Produce Andrew Dominik's Marilyn Monroe Biopic 'Blonde,' Naomi Watts Not Likely To Lead

    Having a friend in Brad Pitt certainly isn't a bad thing.

    Watch: Excellent Spanish Trailer For Tsunami-Inflicted Disaster Film 'The Impossible' Starring Ewan McGregor & Naomi Watts

    One of the best horror-esque ghost story films of the previous decade was Juan Antonio Bayona's "The Orphanage," likely because it was much more than your average, spooks-in-the-attic horror, and was a rich and emotionally textured drama just as much as it was a classic ghost...

    Naomi Watts & Robin Wright Are 'The Grandmothers' In Anne Fontaine's Doris Lessing Adaptation

    'Animal Kingdom' Star James Frecheville & Xavier Samuel From 'Twilight: Eclipse' Also On Board After a long career as an actress and director, French helmer Anne Fontaine had something of an international breakout with her last film, "Coco Before Chanel."

As such, Fon...
