Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes: Even in repose, these articulated action figures by Neca, made to tie in with the July 11 release of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, look very fierce. Andy Serkis leads the apes as Caesar, while Jason Clarke, Keri Russell and Gary Oldman will represent the human race in the movie. [Neca via Collider]

David Fincher  /  Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs: David Fincher will not be directing Sony's upcoming big-screen adaptation of Walter Isaacson's biography Steve Jobs. He was in talks to helm the project, based on a screenplay by Aaron Sorkin, his collaborator on The Social Network, but discussions hit a snag -- possibly in regard to his payment and control over marketing -- and so it looks like both Fincher and Sony will go their separate ways. Fincher is finishing up Gone Girl, which just debuted its first trailer and is due out this fall. [The Hollywood Reporter]



Scalped: Comic books revolving around superheroes are not the only ones being adapted for the big and small screen. The critically acclaimed Scalped, published by DC Comics imprint Vertigo and described as a "crime noir set on a Native American reservation," is being developed into a TV series for WGN America. Doug June (Cinemax's Banshee) is writing the first script and will serve as executive producer. [The Live Feed]


God's Pocket Trailer: Yesterday we saw a trailer for spy thriller A Most Wanted Man, with Philip Seymour Hoffman, and today the late actor is featuring in another starring role, this time as a working-class man whose stepson dies under mysterious circumstances in God's Pocket. Christina Hendricks, Richard Jenkins and John Turturro also star; the movie opens in theaters on May 9. [MovieClips]
