Greengrass lending his style to a Breivak-related film sounds pretty repulsive, but I guess it's one less movie I have to see. But then I liked Campos's pointless Christine Chabbuck film from last year, so we'll see!

Peter Strickland's In Fabric
Peter Strickland (Berberian Sound Studio) will direct ghost story In Fabric starring Oscar-nominated actress Marianne Jean-Baptiste (Secrets & Lies, Broadchurch).

The director is reteaming with producing partner Andy Starke (Free Fire) on the project after the pair previously collaborated on The Duke Of Burgundy. Starke developed the film in association with Ian Benson at Blue Bear Film and Television and will produce via his production company Rook Films.

In Fabric, also written by Strickland, is set against the backdrop of a busy winter sales period in a department store and follows the life of a cursed dress as it passes from person to person, with devastating consequences.

Not really in production so much as "almost released," but apparently Mel Brooks has sanctioned and is appearing in a CGI animated remake of Blazing Saddles?!?

The book was pretty lousy. Here's hoping Perkins can add something interesting to it.

5 years after his brilliant film 'Das merkwürdige Kätzchen' premiered at Berlin Film Fest, Ramon Zürcher has a new project in the works!

When I saw Das merkwürdige Kätzchen at Leeds International Film Festival in 2013, I was so intrigued by it, I changed my schedule to see it a second time. I've kept tabs on the film maker ever since. Glad to finally hear some news from him.

Hazanavicius' next film will be a family fantasy starring Omar Sy and, who else, Berenice Bejo

It's trivial but Spielberg doing something for Lionsgate just does not compute.

This is literally the third Presidential biopic DiCaprio's been attached to in the past five years, along with Theodore Roosevelt and Wilson, and neither of those seem like they're going anywhere.

Also Jared Harris was good as Grant in Lincoln! Obviously he's no DiCaprio-level star but wouldn't have minded to see that performance given its own movie.

Zack Snyder is making a new adaptation of The Fountainhead.

I can't stop laughing. Is he going to do a slow motion sequence where wealthy people mock the poor? I'm in fucking awe of this.

I hope this means his Tilda Swinton period is over. I am a big fan of the work of both, just not together. I felt like they brought out the worst tendencies in each other.
