Mr. Peabody and Sherman

Mr. Peabody and Sherman: The upcoming animated family film Mr. Peabody and Sherman draws from time-traveling characters created for TV and gives them a fresh new look, as demonstrated by the first-look pictures. Talking dog Mr. Peabody and his adopted boy Sherman enjoy a new adventure in the movie, which will zip into theaters on March 7, 2014; the voice cast includes Stephen Colbert, Stanley Tucci and Mel Brooks.

Of Mice and Men: Well, he's done everything else. Actor-director-novelist-university student James Franco is set to make his debut on the Broadway stage in a revival of John Steinbeck's classic novel Of Mice and Men. Franco is being touted to star as George, likely opposite Chris O'Dowd (Girls, This Is 40), who is in negotiations to take on the role of his good friend, the slow-witted Lennie. If negotiations are successful, the production is aiming to open in the spring of 2014. [New York Times]

Hot Wheels: The monster success of the Fast & Furious franchise has already inspired at least one other speedy motor vehicle movie (The Need for Speed), and now another competitor is revving up its engines. The producers of Hot Wheels, inspired by the Mattel toy line, have hired Simon Crane to helm the project; he's a veteran second-unit director (World War Z). And they've also brought on Academy Award-nominated Paul Attanasio (Quiz Show, Donnie Brasco) to write a new draft of the script. [Deadline]

Endless Love Trailer: A new version of 1981's gloomy teen romance Endless Love is heading to theaters on February 14, 2014 -- yes, that's Valentine's Day! -- and the first trailer suggests it's a dreamy tale of a good girl (Gabrielle Wilde, Carrie), a bad boy (Alex Pettyfer, Magic Mike), and a disapproving parent (Bruce Greenwood).
