    Shia LaBeouf Grows 'Horns'

    Variety reports that Shia LaBeouf is attached to take the lead role in the film adaptation of Joe Hill's best-selling novel "Horns."

    Watch: Romain Gavras Directed Ad For Adidas With New Track By Justice

    Romain Gavras -- son of celebrated filmmaker Costa-Gavras -- has followed in his father's footsteps and has quickly made an impressive stamp. Last year, he helmed the controversial video for M.I.A.'s "Born Free" and made his directorial debut with his equally disturbing "Our Day Will Come." He's returned, this time with something a lot more mainstream, but still displaying his signature style.

    Kevin Smith's 'Six Million Dollar Man' Script Set To Become A Comic Book

    Trend alert? Guess we'll have to see, but filmmakers are now turning to comics to get their ambitious scripts made into something, even if ever-wary studios and financiers won't flip the switch on them. Darren Aronofsky's "Noah's Ark" and Duncan Jones' "Mute" are both going the graphic route and now, Kevin Smith is dusting off an old script and getting it inked.

    'Another Earth' Arrives This Summer, 'The Apparition' Scared Into 2012With opening weekends for a film now proving more and more important in the do-or-die atmosphere of Hollywood blockbusters, it's no surprise that jockeying for release dates now starts far in advance, as studios and distributors hope to make the right gamble for their movies.

    Tiger Woods, Thank Charlie Sheen

    Tiger Woods visited Jimmy Fallon last night, and Fallon - who in the monologue called him “The one man out there who can actually say he’s filled with Tiger blood” - praised him for “your courage in coming on a late night comedy show.” Fallon thanked him on behalf of his comedy writers for all those double-entendre golf jokes that wrote themselves (balls!) after the career-decimating scandal that revealed Woods as a master womanizer, but the real thanks should go from Woods to Charlie Sheen.

    You gotta kind of be feeling for Zack Snyder right about now. His brainchild, fantasy action pic "Sucker Punch" is just over a week away from hitting theaters and the advance buzz is muted at best and of course, he's got the huge responsibility and weight of fanboy expectation on his back for the upcoming "Superman" relaunch. There's a lot of pressure on the helmer, but he's bravely pushing forward and he's gonna do it his way whether anyone likes it or not.

    Harry Treadaway, Michelle Ryan & Rasmus Hardiker Lead British Horror-Com 'Cockneys Vs. Zombies'

    Only a few weeks back, we were commenting on how the vampire genre, which has dominated the spookier side of cinema for the last several years, what with the likes of "Twilight" and "Let The Right One In," was seemingly giving up the ghost, as it were, with zombie movies suddenly dominating the news. On the back of the immense success of AMC's "The Walking Dead" and the recent horror-comedy "Zombieland," six projects were announced in the course of three weeks, adding to a whopping twenty already in development. Could there possibly be room for one more?

    Guest Post: Desert Flower Review by Melissa Silvestri

    Desert Flower is a deeply emotional drama (with light comedic moments) that tells the true story of Waris Dirie, a Somali woman who had undergone female genital mutilation at 3 years old, escaped her rural home village before an arranged marriage at 13, became an indentured servant to the Somali ambassador in London, and then, by chance, was discovered and became a supermodel. But despite her fairy tale rags to riches story, Dirie was still haunted by her past, and all the celebrity brought on by her looks couldn’t deny that what happened to her as a child was an unnecessary act of violence, so she used her position and fame to raise awareness about the issue and became a UN spokeswoman against female genital mutilation (FGM).
