Jim Carrey in Kick-Ass 2: Already shot down once, rumors have resurfaced that Jim Carrey will be joining Kick-Ass 2. Director Jeff Wadlow and comic book creator Mark Millar used Twitter to announce that the role of the Colonel has been cast, and implied that the part had gone to someone known for catchphrases Carrey has made famous. Filming begins this month, so the news should be confirmed or denied (again) very soon. [Bleeding Cool]

Alexander Payne: Director Alexander Payne is lining up a colorful group of actors to support the legendary Bruce Dern and Will Forte (MacGruber) in his next film, Nebraska. Dern and Forte play a father and son on a road trip; Bob Odenkirk (Breaking Bad) has been cast as a family member, with Stacy Keach (The Bourne Legacy) joining as an old friend. Filming will begin this fall in Nebraska, the director’s home state. [The Film Stage]

Paul Thomas Anderson: As his latest film, The Master, debuts to debate on the fall festival circuit, director Paul Thomas Anderson is preparing what he hopes to be his next project, an adaptation of Thomas Pynchon’s Inherent Vice. The 2009 novel would be the first of the reclusive writer’s works to hit the big screen; its lead character is a billionire real estate developer in late '60s Los Angeles.

An evocative new U.K. trailer has now been released; the film opens in the U.S. in November. [MSN via HeyUGuys]
