The Price of Protest: Celebrities such as Mark Ruffalo and Susan Sarandon have lent their support to the Occupy Wall Street protests, yet Ruffalo suspects some sympathetic stars are not following suit because they're "afraid for their job, afraid to speak out, afraid they're going to lose work." Maybe Ruffalo needs to get really angry, turn into The Hulk, and do something about it. (The Hollywood Reporter)
 
Milla and Famke Make a Movie: Bringing Up Baby, the directorial debut of actress Famke Janssen, has been acquired by Monterey Media, which plans a theatrical release later this year. Milla Jovovich stars as a European con artist hiding out in Oklahoma with her 10-year-old American-born son. We assume hilarity ensues. (indieWIRE)
 
Market Opening: The American Film Market will showcase 65 world premieres at its annual event next month in Santa Monica, California, out of a total of 395 films that will be screening. The catch: It's intended for industry professionals only, though if you can afford a pass that costs up to $895, you evidently qualify as an industry professional. (Deadline)
 
Film Festival Openings, US Edition, Part 1: The Hamptons International Film Festival kicks off tonight and runs through Monday. Jeff, Who Lives at Home, a comedy by Jay and Mark Duplass, is the opening night presentation. (indieWIRE
 
Film Festival Openings, US Edition, Part 2:  The 31st edition of the Hawaii International Film Festival gets underway  tonight with The Front Line, a war drama that is South Korea's official submission for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. The festival runs through Sunday, October 23. (Official Site)
