    Bradley Cooper & Chris Evans Join List Of Contenders For Doug Liman's 'Luna'

    Financing In Place, As Film Gets Fast-Tracked At DreamWorksThe summer movie season is upon us and it's easy to forget that there are movies being developed at the major studios are aren't sequels, based on a comic or toy or spun-off a previous film or television show.

Originally with Jake Gyllenhaal in the lead, who later left the project, it sputtered back to life this past spring when a wealth of names were said to be contending for the open role including Andrew Garfield, Emile Hirsch a...

While Darren Aronofsky left "The Wolverine" project under the pretenses of family obligations, it's been reported that "Black Swan" director left the project due to lack of creative control. That coupled with the fact that Matthew Vaughn seems to have been put through the ringer by the studio on "X-Men: First Class" -- he was super rushed, was forced to use five different cinematographers, had to switch assistant directors and didn't know who his crew was on certain d...

Sometimes when a formal offer does go out and when it's delivered from a reliable trade paper, the information can be a bit mo...
