    Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ryan Gosling & Alexander Skarsgård Reportedly Wishlisted For 'Man From UNCLE'

    Plus Our Five Suggestions For Potential Replacements For George Clooney In The FilmWith his virus thriller "Contagion" riding on top of the box office (and causing an epidemic of O.C.D. hand-washing from anyone who's seen it), Steven Soderbergh's about to shoot his next film, the male-stripper drama "Magic Mike." But talk has already turned to his next, next film, "The Man From U.N.C.L.E," the second of three he plans to shoot before taking a sabbatical. That film, slated to go in front of cameras in February, hit something of a roadblock a few weeks back when Soderbergh's regular collaborator George Clooney was forced to drop out of the lead role.

    Gus Van Sant Says He's Still Working Out How To Make 'The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test'

    But 'Restless' Helmer Was Never Going To Direct Artist Drama 'The Golden Suicides'Gus Van Sant is not an easily predictable director. His films are always instantly identifiable, but can vary between experimental, difficult pictures like "Gerry" and "Last Days," to more nakedly commercial fare like "Finding Forrester," and, occasionally, as in "To Die For" and "Milk," a sweet spot in between. His latest, "Restless," is another left turn, a quirky teen romance from a first time screenwriter, Jason Lew, that stars Henry Hopper, son of Dennis, and "Alice in Wonderland" lead Mia Wasikowska.

    Amanda Seyfried Out, Isla Fisher In For Louis Leterrier's 'Now You See Me'

    Louis Leterrier has proved himself to be solid visualist, with a solid sense of action choreography but his films thus far haven't quite let him fully flex his directorial muscles. However, this latest, the magician heist thriller "Now You See Me" is not only boasting a pretty great premise, but has also attracted a solid cast thus far including Jesse Eisenberg, Melanie Laurent, Mark Ruffalo and Morgan Freeman, but a minor casting shakeup is underway.

    Kevin Costner Drops Out Of Quentin Tarantino's 'Django Unchained'

    After several films in a row where he's cast either relative unknowns ("Death Proof"), or scattered A-listers among an eclectic cast ("Inglourious Basterds"), Quentin Tarantino has been heading towards his starriest-ever cast for slavery Western "Django Unchained." Biggest-movie-star-in-the-world Will Smith might have turned him down in favor of a M. Night Shyamalan film (a decision that will likely come back to bite him in the ass), but 'Django' isn't suffering too badly: Oscar-winner Jamie Foxx took the title role, and has the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio, Christoph Waltz and Samuel L Jackson all in support.

    Watch: Terrible Trailer For '13' Even Makes Michael Shannon Look Bad

    Sometimes things just don't go according to plan. Director Géla Babluani seemed to be on the cuSp of great things after his “13 Tzameti” won the Sundance Grand Jury Prize in 2006. Not bad for a movie that was pretty overrated and kind of ridiculous to begin with. As these things tend to go, Hollywood came calling and a remake with a first-rate cast was promptly ordered up with Babluani at the helm. And then things went disastrously wrong. It was yanked from the 2010 SXSW festival before its U.S. premiere (rumored to be because of in-fighting on the final cut between the director and producers) and has sat around on a shelf for nearly two years until Anchor Bay recently rescued it in a (probably bargain basement discounted) acquisition. So it it really as bad as all that? Just watch this trailer.

    Fixed Gear, No Brakes: Here's The Trailer For Joseph Gordon-Levitt's Bike Thriller 'Premium Rush'

    It takes a special breed to be a bike courier. Part gear head, part adrenaline junkie and ready to throw themselves into daily mess of gridlock, getting a package from A to B on two wheels isn't a task for just anybody. While we've seen more than enough thrillers on four wheels, "Premium Rush" has to be one of the first in which a bicycle is the preferred method of transport. And in the first trailer for the Joseph Gordon-Levitt vehicle, it looks like it's aiming strictly for B-movie thrills.
