Movie News: 'Apes' Sequel May Need Director; Jennifer Lawrence Sings in New 'House at the End of the Street' Trailer

Rise of the Planet of the Apes

Planet of the Apes: After successfully rebooting a valuable franchise with Rise of the Planet of the Apes, director Rupert Wyatt may not be involved with the next installment after all. Rumor has it that Wyatt is not comfortable with the release date that has already been set -- May 23, 2014 -- and thus may exit the project. Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver, who wrote Rise, have already submitted a script for the sequel, and the studio is eager to move forward, with Wyatt or someone else. [Deadline]

Philip Seymour Hoffman: With his sterling performance in Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master fresh in mind, Philip Seymour Hoffman is ready to move behind the camera again. The Academy Award-winning actor will helm Ezekiel Moss, a supernatural drama about a mysterious stranger with the power to speak with the dead; he arrives in a small town in Nebraska and shakes things up.

Park Chan-wook: Korean auteur Park Chan-wook (Oldboy) has set up another English-language project. Corsica ‘72 is a crime drama about best friends who feud over a woman after they each choose a different course in life. It’s expected to go into production soon, ahead of violent war drama The Brigands of Rattleborge, which Park recently agreed to direct. Park’s drama Stoker, starring Nicole Kidman, will be released next spring. [Showblitz]

House at the End of the Street Trailer: She has won kudos for her acting -- and shot a wicked arrow in The Hunger Games -- but in her new movie Jennifer Lawrence showcases her singing voice. Check out her vocal performance in the new trailer for the thriller House at the End of the Street, opening on Friday. [Yahoo! Movies]
