    Kate Beckinsale & Jessica Biel ConfirmedBill Nighy loves to work but his quality meter is all over the place.

Big or small, the actor will seemingly to do it all as long as there is a craft services table and a paycheck. Or if it's directed by Len Wiseman.

    Lars von Trier's Last Cannes Q & A: "Stupid" Statements, Melancholia, "I Am Not a Nazi," Dunst, Cruz

    This year at Cannes, fest veteran Lars von Trier picked a hell of a way to became a household name. In the days following the notorious Cannes Film Festival Melancholia press conference during which the Danish writer-director offended just about everybody (except the Iranian culture minister) by calling himself a Nazi, he apologized repeatedly for his "stupid, idiotic" comments that led to his banishment from the festival and insisted, "I am not a Nazi."

    'Sympathy For Delicious' Soundtrack With All New Music By The Besnard Lakes Gets Official Release

    While Mark Ruffalo's directorial debut "Sympathy For Delicious" was kind of a disaster, he certainly didn't leave anything to chance. The film follows a wheelchair-confined DJ who discovers he has the power to heal, and it boasts a pretty solid cast including Ruffalo himself, Orlando Bloom, Juliette Lewis, Laura Linney, Noah Emmerich and Christopher Thornton (who also wrote the screenplay). But Ruffalo's eye for talent didn't end there.

    New Malick Film With Ben Affleck & Rachel McAdams Reportedly More Experimental Than 'Tree Of Life'

    Brad Pitt Still Narrating 'Voyage Of Time' But It Has Been Pushed Back For Now2011 is a good time to be a Terrence Malick fan. The notoriously reclusive director doesn't talk to press so for the most part, before this year, getting any info on "The Tree Of Life" or anything else he was working on required patience, digging and a bit of teeth pulling. But with the "The Tree Of Life" beginning its rollout this weekend, the producers of the film are talking to press on his behalf and in addition to chatting about the film are also offering up morsels on some other projects Malick is currently cooking up. As you already know, last year he shot a new untitled film -- referred to as "The Burial" in some cirlces -- starring Ben Affleck, Rachel McAdams, Rachel Weisz, Olga Kurylenko, Javier Bardem, Barry Pepper and Jessica Chastain. Details have been scarce, and while some bits and pieces leaked last fall, as we guessed, it'll probably be nothing like whatever those scrapings of info suggested.

In fact, Denzel met her back in 1977, when she was Pauletta Pearson, on the set of the 1977 TV movie Wilma, which both actors co-starred in, and which was Pauletta's very first on screen role.

    Reveals That He's Still Thinking About A 'Kick-Ass' Sequel'It has been a pretty excellent week for candid director interviews. If you haven't seen it, Dave Poland's interview with Todd Phillips is practically a classic with the helmer spending the opening minutes of the interview ripping into the movie blogger and then fast forward to the end where it caps it off particularly memorably. And with "X-Men: First Class" coming out next week, Matthew Vaughn has hit the press circuit and been dropping truth bombs all over the place, not hiding from the various queries that have come his way.
