    Emily Browning To Star In Catherine Hardwicke's Thriller 'Plush'

    We're sure Catherine Hardwicke and Evan Rachel Wood are still pals, but sometimes scheduling or a variety of other reasons keep two people from working together.

    Hey Nina Jacobson - How About Picking a Woman for Catching Fire!

    According to reports in EW, the Playlist and the Hollywood Reporter, the search for a director for Catching Fire is down to two dudes -- Bennett Miller and Francis Lawrence.  Now I think that Miller is a great director.  I loved Moneyball and Capote.  But to pick him to direct Catchin...
