Unbroken: Angelina Jolie is in final negotiations to direct Unbroken, based on a best-selling book by Laura Hillenbrand (Seabiscuit) that relates the real-life story of Louis Zamperini, a former Olympic track runner who endured shipwreck, 47 days at sea, and imprisonment in a Japanese POW camp during World War II. This will be Jolie’s second film as a director, after her fine Middle Eastern indie drama In the Land of Blood and Honey, but her first for a major Hollywood studio. [Deadline]

Walking on Sunshine: In the upcoming musical Les Miserables, Samantha Barks gives a breakout performance as Eponine, a role she first played onstage in London. Now the 22-year-old actress is in talks to join a modern musical comedy set to pop songs from the 1980s. Titled Walking on Sunshine, the film is set to star Kylie Minogue and will be directed by the duo responsible for StreetDance 3D. Commenters: Can you name the band that originally performed the title song? [The Wrap]

Identity Thief Trailer: When his identity is stolen, Jason Bateman undertakes a road trip to bring the criminal to justice, little imagining that his troubles have just begun. Melissa McCarthy plays the titular character; a new trailer showcases a lot of outrageous laughs. Identity Thief, directed by Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses), will open in theaters on February 8, 2013.
