Horrific ‘V/H/S’ Trailer; Hans Zimmer Scoring 'Man of Steel; and Jennifer Connelly Joins Darren Aronofsky’s ‘Noah’

A Beautiful Mind

Take This Woman: Rumors have been rife that Jennifer Connelly was the only actress coveted by director Darren Aronofsky to play the titular character’s wife in Noah. Now an offer has been officially extended and she is in negotiations for the role, which would bind her in holy matrimony once again with Russell Crowe; she portrayed his long-suffering wife in A Beautiful Mind (above) -- and won an Academy Award.

Scoring Superman: Composer Hans Zimmer has been denying rumors for months that he would be scoring Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, citing a “direct conflict” with …  something else. Well, the conflict must have been resolved, because Zimmer is now confirmed as the composer, marking a reunion with producer Christopher Nolan -- Zimmer scored all three of Nolan’s Batman flicks as well as Inception -- and the first time Snyder has not employed composer Tyler Bates.

Not the Last: With so many remakes of beloved properties in development, it’s a relief to hear about a planned remake of a lesser-known film. Released in 1973, The Last of Sheila was an entertaining ensemble murder mystery set on a yacht. Anthony Perkins and Stephen Sondheim wrote the script and filled it with Hollywood in-jokes; 30-year-old Ian McShane had a supporting role. A new version has been set up at New Line and the search for a writer is underway. [The Hollywood Reporter]

S is for Sleepless: A killer anthology film that’s had horror fans buzzing and/or salivating since its debut at Sundance, V/H/S recently premiered a great poster, and now it has a very unsettling trailer to go along with it. Note that this red-band trailer is very definitely NSFW. Beware that sleeplessness may result. [Yahoo! Movies]
