    Carey Mulligan Joins Coens' 'Inside Llewyn Davis' & Spike Jonze's New Film Starring Joaquin Phoenix

    It's hard to believe that just two years ago the world was waking up to Carey Mulligan. The actress seemed to come out of nowhere with her turn in Lone Scherfig's "An Education," and rather than try and go for big paydays in tentpole or franchise movies, Mulligan has wisely opted to work with filmmakers instead. Jim Sheridan ("Brothers"), Oliver Stone ("Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps"), Mark Romanek ("Never Let Me Go"), Nicolas Winding Refn ("Drive") and Steve McQueen ("Shame") now grace her filmography, with Baz Luhrmann being added this fall as she shoots "The Great Gatsby." And Mulligan isn't stopping there, as Variety report, she's addin...

The filmmaker has two scripts in the can: one, an untitled political satire that his old co-hort Spike Jonze is going to direct starring Joaquin Phoenix, and another that Kaufman will once again get behind the camera for called "Frank or Francis." We already know that it will s...

    Today In Unexpected Pairings: Kevin James & Emily Watson Star In Indie 'Little Boy'

    Plus Will The Portly Comedian Appear In Charlie Kaufman's 'Frank & Francis'?We may be about to be stripped of our snark cred, but we don't hate Kevin James. He's a decent enough actor, has some comic timing, and is a firmly likable screen presence. We do, however, hate virtually every film he's made: a cynical string of fatty-fall-over gags tied to the loosest possible plot you could think of. But with "The Zookeeper" failing to meet box office expectations (taking half of the gross of James' last vehicle "Paul Blart: Mall Cop"), the chubby funnyman may be heading for a change of tack, with the news that he's teaming up with Oscar nominee Emi...

    Spike Jonze & Charlie Kaufman Hoping To Re-team On Secret New Project

    The relationship between director Spike Jonze and writer Charlie Kaufman has resulted in two of the greatest meta-comedies of all time: 1999's "Being John Malkovich" and 2002's "Adaptation." And while the two have tackled their own projects in recent years with Jonze bringing the wild, tortured hear...
