    Grace Kelly To Get 'The King's Speech' Treatment In Upcoming Film

    While we’re still unclear about which war Grace Kelly ended, producer Pierre-Ange Le Pogam is moving ahead with a “The King’s Speech”-esque “not-a-biopic” biopic about the Oscar-winning actress-turned-Princess of Monaco. The movie will focus on the six-month period in 1962 when the city-state of Monaco got into a heated dispute with France, which had grown tired of the small principality being a tax haven. Kelly maneuvered behind the scenes to save Monaco from a coup.

    Watch: Robert Pattinson Gets Kristen Stewart In The Mood For Some Lovin' In 'Breaking Dawn' Clip

    "If this beautiful, expensive home in Brazil is a rockin' with vampire/virgin sex, don't come a-knockin'." That will be the sign Edward puts on the door when he escapes to South America with Bella for their honeymoon in "Twilight: Breaking Dawn," and ever the gentleman, he's going to at least carry her across the threshold before sticking it in fangbanger style.

    See It Big: "The Shining"

    When Stanley Kubrick announced he was planning on making his first horror movie, people had the right to be afraid. Too often tagged as a cool modernist, the New York–born director (living for many years in England a life that had been somewhat mischaracterized as overly remote and isolated) had in fact been responsible, despite his predilection for clean lines and damning irony, for some of the most heated, visceral images in cinema. Consider Colonel Dax’s impassioned dressing-down of the top brass (after it’s too late to save his men) in Paths of Glory; General Ripper’s dangerous, tobacco-haloed delusional behavior in Dr. Strangelove; HAL’s slow dismemberment in 2001: A Space Odyssey; any of the gut-churning spectatorial discomforts of A Clockwork Orange; the agonizingly protracted duels in Barry Lyndon—take-no-prisoners moments all. A Kubrick film doesn’t just make you feel what you’re watching, it forces you to watch helplessly as the world spins into controlled chaos.

    David Goyer Penning 'Da Vinci's Demons' For Starz

    While we're not exactly fans of the conspiracy-minded franchises like "The Da Vinci Code" or "National Treasure" -- movies that attempt to decipher historic characters via ludicrous false histories -- the trend is not going away, and now thanks to “The Dark Knight” co-writer David Goyer, another such project is coming.

    McG To Direct David Guggenheim Penned Thriller 'Puzzle Palace'

    With the cinematic visionary McG having already tackled a TV adaptation (the "Charlie's Angels" movies), a weepy sports drama ("We Are Marshall"), an unnecessary sequel ("Terminator Salvation"), and right around the corner, a romantic action/comedy ("This Means War") it looks like the man with three letters for a name wants to try his hand at something different.
