Fast and Furious 6

Fast and Furious 6: Vin Diesel looks pensive as he gets into character on the set of Justin Lin’s Fast and Furious 6, which is currently in production. Little is known about the plot, but we do know that Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Gal Gadot and Sung Kang are all returning, along with newcomers Joe Taslim and Gina Carano. The film roars into theaters next spring. [Vin Diesel's Facebook page via Hey U Guys]

Alex Cross Sequel: Is America ready for more Alex Cross? Tyler Perry, who stars as the title character in the movie that opens wide tomorrow, is banking on it; he’s concluding a deal with author James Patterson to make Patterson’s novel Double Cross the second film in a hoped-for series. Alex Cross takes liberties with its inspiration, Patterson’s Cross, so it’s hard to say exactly which elements from Double Cross will be used if the sequel gets made. [Deadline]

Heathcliff: After making film versions of Casper, Stuart Little and Alvin, Waterman Entertainment is now turning its attention to comic strip character Heathcliff. The wisecracking cat, featured in a daily strip since 1973, was previously adapted for two animated TV series in the 1980s. A CGI/live action film is planned with “contemporary storylines.” The company also intends to produce 13 new episodes for television. [Coming Soon]

Killing Them Softly Trailer: In France, Brad Pitt’s upcoming movie will be titled Cogan Killing Them Softly, but all the French subtitles in the world (in the new international trailer) can’t disguise the essential American gangster-movie ethos at play: slow-motion violence and tough-guy dialogue. Richard Jenkins, James Gandolfini and Ray Liotta also star; the movie is due out in the U.S. on November 30. [The Film Stage]
