Movie News in 60 Seconds: Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence, Newlyweds; Vera Farmiga Gets Musical; Frank Langella, Mentor or Monster?

The Silver Linings Playbook
 
Together Again: We haven’t seen David O. Russell’s The Silver Linings Playbook yet (the comedy is not due out until November; the picture above is an unofficial behind-the-scenes shot), but stars Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence must have enjoyed the experience, because they’re ready to team up again. The drama Serena is set in 1929 North Carolina, and Cooper and Lawrence will play ambitious newlyweds; Susanne Bier is set to direct.  (Vulture)  

Musical Fireworks: Vera Farmiga will sing and play the piano for her role as Christine McVie in The Drummer, a bio-pic starring Aaron Eckhart as Dennis Wilson of The Beach Boys. McVie was a key member of Fleetwood Mac during their heyday, and entered into a “fiery and tortuous relationship” with Wilson during the late 70s and early 80s. (The Hollywood Reporter)

Mentor or Monster?: Hot off his starring performance in Robot and Frank, which just debuted at Sundance, Frank Langella will next star opposite Wes Bentley in the independent drama The Time Being. Langella will play “a dying, eccentric millionaire who may not be what he seems.” (Deadline)

Evil Mockingbird: Nearly four years after the release of home-invasion thriller The Strangers, director Bryan Bertino is finally in pre-production on his follow-up project. Mockingbird is said to be a found-footage thriller; Bertino will be directing from his own script. (Shock Til You Drop)
