Eric Bana in Lone Survivor: Even though Battleship didn’t perform up to expectations, that hasn't slowed down director Peter Berg as he prepares to start production on his next film, Lone Survivor, in September. Mark Wahlberg, Ben Foster, Emile Hirsch and Taylor Kitsch are already onboard to star in the story of a Navy SEAL mission that doesn’t go as planned, and now Eric Bana (above, in the upcoming Deadfall) is in negotiations to join the cast as a SEAL lieutenant.

Martin Scorsese’s Sinatra: Famed director Martin Scorsese is hard at work on his new film The Wolf of Wall Street, with Leonardo DiCaprio, but meanwhile, potential future projects are piling up. Sinatra, an authorized biopic of the legendary singer, may be the most intriguing -- and toughest to crack. Billy Ray, who’s worked on every kind of project, from his own indie drama Shattered Glass to mega-blockbuster The Hunger Games, is the latest to try and get the script in shape. Scorsese has not yet decided if the story of Ol' Blue Eyes will be his next film; obviously, that depends in great part on the script. [Deadline]

Titanic 3D in Myanmar: The country of Myanmar in Southeast Asia, formerly known as Burma, is home to 60 million people, and is slowly emerging from the effects of a long military dictatorship. No Hollywood movies have been seen there for at least a decade, and possibly much longer, but that wil change on Friday, when Titanic 3D opens in Myanmar theaters. James Cameron's reissued blockbuster has played extremely well in neighboring China, earning more than $146 million this year. [Los Angeles Times]

End of Watch Trailer: Cop dramas come and go, but End of Watch starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena could be special. David Ayer, who also made the underrated Street Kings and Hard Times, wrote and directed. Check out the NSFW red-band trailer below; the film is due in theaters on September 21. [Yahoo! Movies]
