True Lies

Avatar 2: Will Arnold Schwarzenegger reunite with James Cameron in Avatar 2? That possibility is being reported by at least one site, claiming that the actor will appear as a "nasty" human general in Cameron's upcoming sequel, which picks up soon after the events of the first movie, with the human military forces regrouping. The action star and the master filmmaker teamed up for three of the best works of each of their respective careers: The Terminator, Terminator 2: Judgment Day and True Lies, the last in 1994.

Fast & Furious 7: Lucas Black, who made a great impression as the young star of The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift in 2006, is returning to the series. (Which, if you saw this summer's edition and stayed to the very end, makes perfect sense.) And he's coming back for not one, not two, but at least three more installments of the blockbuster action franchise. He'll be playing the same character, Sean Boswell, an American kid who is forced to move to Japan but thrives in the underground racing scene. [Deadline]

Gone Girl: Emily Ratajkowski, a model who gained considerable notice as one of the undraped dancers in the music video for Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines," is the latest surprising addition to the cast of David Fincher's Gone Girl. She'll play a key role opposite Ben Affleck, who is set to star as a husband who is the prime suspect in the disappearance of his wife (Rosamund Pike). If the deal is completed, she would join Tyler Perry and Neil Patrick Harris in the intriguing cast. [The Wrap]

Zero Charisma Trailer: Last year our own Peter Hall gave us an early look at Zero Charisma, a charming comedy about geek culture. The movie was a hit at SXSW earlier this year and will be available to watch via various VOD platforms on October 8 and in select theaters on October 11. The theatrical trailer provides a great introduction to the lovably nerdy characters. [The Film Stage]
