Iron Man 3

The Entire History of You: Robert Downey Jr. will take a break from playing Iron Man and produce a sci-fi thriller based on a British TV show. More precisely, he has optioned The Entire History of You, an episode of anthology show Black Mirror, which will be adapted into a film about a widower who uses technology to “reconstruct his relationship with his dead wife” only to stumble into a conspiracy. At this point, Downey is only producing, not starring in the movie. [The Guardian]

A Million Ways to Die in the West: Fresh off her role in the controversial, porn-themed drama Lovelace, which just debuted at Sundance, Amanda Seyfried is looking for a change of pace. She’s in talks to costar in Seth MacFarlane’s comic Western A Million Ways to Die in the West. She would play the girlfriend of MacFarlane’s character, a cowardly farmer; Charlize Theron is also set to star as the wife of a notorious outlaw who teaches the farmer how to shoot. MacFarlane will direct. [The Hollywood Reporter]

Don Jon’s Addiction: Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s directorial debut Don Jon’s Addiction, in which he stars as a New Jersey lothario with, er, personal issues, made a splash at Sundance, but it will be toned down in advance of its theatrical release this summer, with some of the more graphic sex scenes edited in order to secure an “R” rating. The actor/director aims to maintain the integrity of the story, however, and, as a new image reveals, he’s perfectly willing to bare his arm in support of his film. [EW.com / The Film Stage]

Jack the Giant Slayer Trailer: Up until now, Bryan Singer’s Jack the Giant Slayer has been presented as a fantasy adventure, but a new trailer repositions it as more of an action thriller, complete with driving music and more battle scenes. Nicholas Hoult, Ewan McGregor and Eleanor Tomlinson star; the movie opens on March 1. [Collider]
