    Production Watch: Olsen's Red Lights, Cheadle in War Machine, Petunia Shoots in NYC

    - Get her while she's hot. Sundance It-Girl (Martha Marcy May Marlene, Silent House) Elizabeth Olsen just joined Robert De Niro, Sigourney Weaver and Cillian Murphy in Red Lights, from director Rodrigo Cortes (Buried). The non-twin Olsen sister tells Risky Business she found the thriller after reading "script after script after script." She will play Weaver's student: “Robert plays a world renowned psychic and Sigourney is a psychology professor…Cillian Murphy is my love interest, though that’s not a huge part of the story.” Olsen will take a break from NYU -- "my education is always a priority" -- to shoot Red Lights.

    LaBeouf is Forbes' Best Deal; Americans Still Like Gibson; Lohan Talks to Vanity Fair

    - Shia LaBeouf, for a second year running, tops Forbes' list of Best Actors for the Buck. As an investment, LaBeouf is very attractive: "he offers a great return…For every $1 studios spend on the 24-year-old actor his films return an average $81 of profit." LaBeouf's paychecks will continue to grow; this won't hurt his agent's requests for a raise. Forbes' top 36 earners each had to have three movies open in over 500 theaters in the past five years, and meet a myriad of other criteria including their Celebrity 100 status. LaBeouf is king and Anne Hathaway is queen at #2, earning studios $64 for each dollar they pay her. Harry Potter boy Danie...
