    'Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters' Writer Dante Harper To Lay 'Foundation' Down For Roland Emmerich

    Believe it or not, advance word on Roland Emmerich's Shakespeare conspiracy movie "Anonymous" is actually good. We shit you not. And while the movie is a bit of a departure for the usually disaster-happy director, lately he's surrounding himself with projects that are more in line with his established oeuvre. Up next he's got the epic and somewhat secretive "Singularity," which already has a May 17, 2013 release date. And oh yeah, he was also offered "Asteroids" this summer (though it doesn't seem like he's taken it). But alas, on the backburner for a couple of years now has been an adaptation of Isaac Asimov's classic "Foundation" series.

    Christopher Nolan Tops Warner Bros. Wishlist For 'The Twilight Zone'

    Michael Bay, Alfonso Cuaron & Rupert Wyatt Also In The MixSo yeah, we sort of forgot about this one, but Warner Bros. has been trying to get a reboot of "The Twilight Zone" off the ground for a while now. Way back in 2008 Rand Ravich ("The Astronaut's Wife") was hired to write the script, and then last fall rising scribe Jason Rothenberg was brought on board the project. And that's pretty much all we heard about it. Well, it looks like the studio is aiming for some big names to take the reins.

    In the Works: Returning to Kurelek's Maze

    Bob Young and his two sons were lured into making successive films about The Maze artist William Kurelek, reports Bill Desowitz:It's easy to get sucked into The Maze, the surreal and nightmarish Bosch-like painting that Canadian artist William Kurelek (1927-1977) created as a mental patient in England in 1953. Comprised of 17 panels, it's a naked glimpse into his troubled mind. The Maze is so powerful and dynamic, in fact, that it ensnares you more like a movie or graphic novel than a painting. No wonder award-winning director Bob Young (The Ballad of Gregorio Cortez, The Eskimo: Fight for Life) was inspired to document Kurelek's complex life with partner David Grubin for an educational short back in 1969, which has since become a hallmark of art therapy. And no wonder Young's two sons, Nick and Zack (of LA rock band, A.i.), were seduced into restoring the lost footage they recently recovered and making a much fuller work of their own via digital technology.

    Charlie Kaufman Says Zany, Outrageous 'Frank Or Francis' Is About "Online Film Criticism"

    But "In The Broadest Possible Sense Only"; We've Read It And Have Details On This Wonderfully Ambitious & Bizarre ScriptScreenwriter/director Charlie Kaufman is a busy man. After taking a detour to give a script polish on "Kung Fu Panda 2," the writer behind "Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind" and the director of "Synecdoche, New York," is back at it in full force. The filmmaker has two scripts in the can: one, an untitled political satire that his old co-hort Spike Jonze is going to direct starring Joaquin Phoenix, and another that Kaufman will once again get behind the camera for called "Frank or Francis." We already know that it will star Nicolas Cage, Steve Carrell and Jack Black and that it's a satire of Hollywood where a film director feuds with a blogger.
