    'The Social Network' Producers Reteam To Have 'Sex On The Moon'

    We’re not sure anyone saw the success of “The Social Network” coming. A year ago the Aaron Sorkin-written, David Fincher-directed film was still being skeptically referred to as “the Facebook movie”, even by fans of its filmmakers. A year later the film has topped over $200 million in worldwide grosses and has become an unstoppable awards magnet. Producers Scott Rudin, Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti are clearing space on their mantel for their forthcoming Oscars but are already hoping for lightning to strike twice with their next outing.

    Review: 'The Housemaid' Is A Remake That, Surprise, Pales In Comparison To Original

    A Korean city square is bustling. Folks window shop, eat out, and party in lavish apartments. Restaurant workers bust their ass to meet the demand, taking shots in-between flipping whatever's on the grill. A young woman stands on a balcony, gazing at the crowds before ending her life with a fall. Some stop to look, some debate whether they should go closer, few seek help. Eun-yi (Do-yeon Jeon from the terrific "Secret Sunshine") rides by the scene after a hard night of work, finding empty streets and a vague chalk outline on the pavement. Director Sang-soo Im firmly stamps his view of a cold, uncaring society right from the start, displaying humankind as a selfish entity devoid of any semblance of decency. He'll make a full circle with this sequence eventually, but until then he uses this current to tackle modern Korea's huge gap in living conditions (the "super rich" and poor, as he puts it), revel in soapy melodrama, orchestrate highly arousing sex scenes, and shoot probably the most elegant and beautiful visuals this side of "I Am Love." The fact of it being a remake hangs overhead, but at the end of the day, whatever you say about 2010's "The Housemaid," it is an all-together different beast from the 1960s post-Korean War oddity, though simply nowhere near as strong or lingering.

    Ben Affleck Adds Black List Script 'American Bullshit' To List Of Potential 'The Town' Followup Gigs

    If you're Ben Affleck, the world is your oyster right now. The actor/director is coming off "The Town" the box office sensation and Warner Bros. Oscar hope that has a strong chance to slide into the ten films nominated for Best Picture and as such, he's been offered plenty of high profile follow-up gigs. Affleck has seen films like "Superman: Man Of Steel" (now with Zack Snyder) and "Tales From The Gangster Squad" (now with Ruben Fleischer) cross his desk, he's writing the New York Yankees wife-swapping drama "The Trade" with his brother Casey as a potential directing vehicle, he's got the parallel timeline, sci-fi tale "Replay" under consideration and he's toying with an idea for a film about the Eastern Congo. And now one more film is being thrown into the mix.

    Seth Rogen Reveals George Lucas Believes World Will End In 2012

    Actor Blows Chance To Voice Yoda In 'Star Wars' Reboot Seth Rogen is currently doing the press rounds for "The Green Hornet" and, while we've already learnt that the film isn't much cop, Rogen always gives good interview, and a chat with the Toronto Sun (via Movieline) has turned up a doozy of a story about Rogen's encounter with a geek demi-god, one that confirms something that most of us have suspected for a very long time: George Lucas is out of his goddamn mind.
