    Janie Jones Review

    Janie Jones is a heartwarming father daughter story. It is inspired by the true story of writer/director David Rosenthal about the introduction of a father to the teenage daughter he never knew he had. Abigail Breslin, who is officially no longer a kid, plays the teen who has lived her life with her single mom and is one of those kids that has had to grow up way before her time because she has to take care of her junkie mom (played by Elisabeth Shue.)

    So, Brett Ratner Wants To Make 'Hunting Eichmann' Now

    For a guy who is pals with Roman Polanski, is housemates with James Toback, has produced documentaries on John Cazale and Woody Allen and is a great lover of cinema, Brett Ratner's oeuvre has been ridiculously milquetoast. But then again, making movies that are About Things and have even a whiff of artistry, don't allow you to hang with Paris Hilton and publish books of tasteful nude photography. But since he's producing the Oscars this year, we suppose he's feeling it's about time to direct a movie that has a possibility of getting nominated for one.

    ‘Toy Story 3′ Writer Michael Arndt To Tackle Disney’s ‘Phineas And Ferb’

    If he doesn’t have a key already, they might as well give him one because Michael Arndt—the Oscar winning writer of “Little Miss Sunshine” and one of the co-writers of “Toy Story 3” (that also earned him a nomination)—is going to be a fixture on the Disney lot for the next few years. This year the mouse house has been busy lining up projects for the man, tasking him with “Snow And The Seven” as well the ambitious, under wraps and currently untitled Pete Docter movie over at Pixar about the formation of ideas inside the human mind. Well, he’s lined up yet another gig.

    James Cameron Says ‘Fantastic Voyage’ Has Been Retooled Into A Love Story

    While it still seems a bit of a way off just yet, the gestating remake of "Fantastic Voyage" is still very much in the works. The film has seen a number of helmers eyeing the director’s chair, but its Shawn Levy of "Real Steel" and "Night At The Museum" fame who is now set to take it on. The original 1966 film follows a group of scientists who are miniaturized and sent into a human body in a submarine to remove a blood clot from a colleague’s brain—a scientist who is invaluable to the CIA. Certainly, there is a lot of room to tell the story again particularly aided with all the special effects tools that are available today, but that's not the only change that's in store for the movie.

    Liam Hemsworth, Kit Harington, Jai Courtney, Max Irons & More Vie For 'The Host' With Saoirse Ronan

    Dane DeHaan, Thomas McDonnell, Augustus Prew & Jake Abel Also In The MixTake note, young directors. This is why you attach yourself to projects before your next movie comes out. While the middle performance and dreadful reviews for the pretty idiotic "In Time" would have sidelined any director, Andrew Niccol was savvy enough to sign on to "The Host," an adaptation of a novel by "Twilight" author Stephenie Meyer and with a release date already pegged, this one is beginning to cast up.

    The biggest movie showdown of the winter won't belong to Lisbeth Salander and the evil she faces, nor Sherlock Holmes versus Moriaty or even Ethan Hunt and the enemies pursuing. Nope, it will belong to Tilda Swinton and Ezra Miller, who match wits to tragic results in Lynne Ramsay's "We Need To Talk About Kevin."

    Martin Campbell Might Be 'The Fall Guy' For TV Show Adaptation

    With full credit taken for delivering the best Bond film in years with "Casino Royale," a gritty reboot (of sorts) of the franchise, director Martin Campbell flopped hard with his next two films. There was the misguided Mel Gibson thriller "Edge Of Darkness" (which this writer turned off halfway through) and then this summer's comic movie disaster, "Green Lantern." So what kind of movies do you get direct when you get locked up in director's jail? TV reboots.
