    Coen Brothers Going The Indie Route With 'Inside Llewyn Davis'

    After the runaway success of "True Grit," which nabbed a quarter of a billion dollars worldwide, you'd figure Joel and Ethan Coen would cash in their chips with a major studio, try to get something expensive made, or force the major studios to pony up prior to shooting. The Coens haven't operated independently for awhile, as a distributor has been in place for their last few films before the project was even shot. This time, however, the brothers are doing something different: out of the Toronto International Film Festival, the rumor is that the Coens' latest, "Inside Llewyn Davis," will be filmed without a domestic distributor attached, with...

    Peter Sollett, Anne Hathaway Teaming For Romantic Comedy

    Could Be The Project 'Cover Your Assets'Peter Sollett is in talks to direct an untitled romantic comedy at Lionsgate with Anne Hathaway in the starring role. In the very vague logline, which sounds a little like it has a typo, Hathaway would play "a career woman looking to break her streak of losing romantic relationships to her job." This truly, honestly does not sound like any romantic comedy we've ever heard before! Anne Hathaway, breaking the mold! We're a little disappointed Hathaway would go in this direction, especially after "The Dark Knight Rises," where she'll probably be playing the fourth or fifth lead in a Boy's Club Adventure Mo...

    Toronto Film Festival - Day 2

    The thing that I've gotten from this festival so far is that this is a festival really about buying and selling. The cool thing for me is to look at all the great European films for sale and try and find a gem to see that might never make it to the US. I'm trying to find some cool under the radar...

    Anne Peacock has been hired by Universal to write a new take on the "Cinderella" story. Again. We would say that fairy tales are the new superheroes, but it's not like studios are threatening competing "Iron Man" movies. Yep, Snow White has company, as if it wasn't enough that Relativity's "Snow Whi...
