    Steven Zaillian Bails On Jack Ryan Reboot, Project Stalled As Paramount Focuses On 'Star Trek 2'

    It's been a helluva merry-go-round of writers on Paramount's gestating reboot of the Jack Ryan franchise. A little bit of history: it started as an origin story penned by Hossein Amini ("The Four Feathers," the upcoming "Drive"); then Paramount picked up the spec script "Dubai" by Adam Cozad tasking the writer to re-draft it for a Jack Ryan vehicle; Anthony Peckham ("Sherlock Holmes," "Invictus") then put his hands on the script, only for Cozad to come back and give it another tinker; finally, last month, expensive and very hot screenwriter Steve Zaillian was hired to give it another rewrite but it looks like they need to find someone else.

    Darren Aronofsky & Mila Kunis Defend Natalie Portman In 'Black Swan' Dancing "Controversy"

    Well, this is one of the lamer talking points around a movie to come down the line in the past little while. A "controversy" of sorts has popped up around "Black Swan" regarding just how much of the dancing Natalie Portman did in the film. Earlier this month, Portman’s fiancé and "Black Swan" choreographer Benjamin Millepied told the LA Times that the actress did 85% of the dancing witnessed in the film. But that didn't sit right with Sarah Lane, an American Ballet Theatre soloist who doubled for Portman and in some instances, had the actress' face digitally grafted onto hers Armie Hammer style.

    Watch Edie Falco's Droll Nurse Jackie: New, Full Episode

    For two seasons, the heroine of Nurse Jackie has been pulling off the near-impossible: crushing pills and snorting them in the hospital bathroom, juggling her husband and her pharmacist (how convenient! ) boyfriend, all without getting caught. And Edie Falco has done something just as miraculous: kept us on Jackie’s side while she has selfishly used everyone who loves her.

    Watch United States of Tara, with Eddie Izzard: New, Full Episode
