    Jesse Eisenberg & Naomi Watts Circle Noah Baumbach's 'While We're Young'

    It's been a bit of a casting revolving door for Noah Baumbach's next effort "While We're Young." Last year, Ben Stiller, Gerta Gerwig and James Franco were all set to team on the film. Then, shortly after that was announced, Gerwig left and Cate Blanchett joined, only for both the actress and Franco...

    Jesse Eisenberg May Star In Counter-Terrorism Biopic From 'Social Network' Producer Scott Rudin

    We're not sure if you're familiar with a little film called "The Social Network."

    Allen & Roberto Benigni Confirmed To Be Taking Acting Roles In Project Woody Allen's latest, "Midnight in Paris," unspools in Cannes tonight -- in fact, its screening to the press on the Croisette is already over. And we're cautiously optimistic. While Allen's recent London and New York excursions have varied from the disappointing ("Whatever Works," "You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger") to the disastrous ("Scoop," "Cassandra's Dream"), but when he ventured to more exotic climes, for "Vicky Christina Barcelona," the prolific writer-director ended up producing his best work in years, and the promising trailer for the Paris-set picture suggests...

    David Fincher Responds To Robert Duvall's "Too Many Takes Is The Enemy Of Acting" Comments

    Spike Jonze Initially Tried To Talk Fincher Out Of Making 'The Social Network'; Director Says He Warned Justin Timberlake About His Tough MethodWhat a grouping in New York yesterday evening. Last night, Spike Jonze moderated a post-"The Social Network" Q&A with director David Fincher and star Jesse Eisenberg. If that's not enough talent in one room we're not sure what is (photos courtesy of the honorable Mr. Jeff Wells). We were in attendance for what was a spirited and lively discussion of Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg and the idea of subjective truths in Aaron Sorkin's screenplay (it should be noted, while Sorkin at the New York Film Fes...
