    Chris Evans & Michelle Monaghan To Star In Offbeat Anti-Rom Com 'A Many Splintered Thing'

    Michelle Monaghan

    Deadline is exclusively reporting news out of Toronto that the once-and-future Captain America Chris Evans and supremely underutilized Michelle Monaghan will co-star in "A Many Splintered Thing," for McG's Wonderland Sound & Vision and Voltage Pictures. Described in the report as "in the vein of 'Amelie' and '(500) Days of Summer'" (Manic Pixie Dream Girls, activate!), a self-described "anti-romantic comedy." The film will mark Evans' first outing as an executive producer.

    Bruce Willis In Talks To Star In Jeffrey Nachmanoff's 'American Assassin'

    Bruce Willis is having a pretty good year. Ok, so it hasn't exactly been spotless: few people liked "Lay The Favorite" at Sundance, and he's had some near-DTV level cameos in films like "The Expendables 2," this week's "Cold Light of Day" and the genuinely DTV "Fire With Fire" (starring 50 Cent, who seems to be running some kind of sponsorship programme for aging tough-guy actors). But he also gave a lovely, atypical performance in Wes Anderson's "Moonrise Kingdom," and according to early reviews today, including our own, is pretty great in Rian Johnson's "Looper," a film that Willis has described as the best he's ever been in.

    Rumor: Intergalactic Bounty Hunter Lobo Might Be In 'Justice League' Movie (But Probably Not...)

    Take this with the biggest grain of salt you can find (we suggest the Salt District of your local urban center), but Comic Book Movie is exclusively reporting that Warner Bros. is "kicking around" the idea of using Lobo in their forthcoming "Justice League" movie. We can't help but zero in on the intentionally vague phrasing of the report. "Kicking around" could amount to one executive saying "Hey, what about putting Lobo in 'Justice League'?" only to have the rest of the room ask "Who is Lobo?" And then whip him with towels or something.

    'The Hunger Games' That Could Have Been

    The Hunger Games film was much anticipated due to the best selling novels.  Having read, in three days, all of the books in the trilogy I was one of those individuals who was caught up in the casting of the film.  After reading a book you have your own images of the character based upon descriptions in the book.  It can sometimes be hard to reconcile that image in your head with who gets cast in the final film.

    'Pitch Perfect' Soundtrack Features Covers Of Madonna, Salt N' Pepa, The Bangles & More

    As serious-minded cinephiles who couldn't be persuaded to sit through an episode of "Glee" if the lives of their loved ones were at stake, there is absolutely no way that we kind of secretly want to see "Pitch Perfect." No, sir. Not us. We certainly weren't pleasantly surprised by a trailer that seems to have a little more spark and wit than the average teen movie, and featured what seems to be a killer comic performance by "Bridesmaids" star Rebel Wilson. And there's definitely no way that we'd pay to see the ludicrously talented Anna Kendrick read from the lengthy instruction booklet for a Blu-ray player (although, curiously we did draw the line at "What To Expect When You're Expecting."
