Chip 'n' Dale

Chip 'n' Dale: Two venerable animated chipmunks are returning to the big screen. Created at Walt Disney Productions in 1943, Chip and Dale were rebooted as crime fighters in 1989 for an animated series (Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers) and now a big-screen, live-action/CGI hybrid version is planned, based on that series. Mandeville Films/TV, the company behind Disney's recent Muppets movies, will produce. [Heat Vision]

Silence: Liam Neeson, who has cultivated his qualifications as an action star over the past few years, will be digging into a straight drama again. He's set to join Andrew Garfield and Ken Watanable in Martin Scorsese's Silence, which is based on a novel about the effort by Jesuits to bring Christianity to Japan in the 17th century. Production is scheduled to begin later this year. [Deadline]

Peter Pan: In case you missed it, Bill Murray made another memorable entrance on The Late Show with David Letterman recently, "flying" onstage as he sang "I'm Flying" from the 1954 Broadway musical version of Peter Pan. And then he explained why, which has something to do with NBC's plans for another live television musical after the success of The Sound of Music with Carrie Underwood last year. [YouTube]

Winter's Tale Trailer: The lushly beautiful new trailer for Winter's Tale eases back on the action and conflict and focuses on a timeless, rather fantastic romance between burglar Colin Farrell and heiress Jessica Brown Findlay (Downton Abbey). Jennifer Connelly and Russell Crowe also star; the movie opens in theaters on Valentine's Day. [Warner Bros.]
