Will Ferrell / Michael Winterbottom

Russ & Roger Go Beyond: Will Ferrell is already set to star in the comedy Russ & Roger Go Beyond, and now acclaimed indie veteran Michael Winterbottom (The Trip to Italy) is in talks to direct the project. Based on a true story, Ferrell will play Russ Meyer, a notorious softcore porn filmmaker who teamed with young film critic Roger Ebert on Beyond the Valley of the Dolls, "the first X-rated film to be released by a studio" in 1970.

Robin Hood

Robin Hood: Another Robin Hood movie has gone into development, with Will Beall (Gangster Squad) writing a screenplay for Warner Bros. The new project joins others in various stages of development: Robin Hood: Origins (compared in tone to Batman Begins), Nottingham & Hood ("a swashbuckling family friendy adventure"), and Hood ("a high-action Fast & Furious meets Mission: Impossible style reinvention"). The last studio version of the tale came when Russell Crowe starred in Ridley Scott's Robin Hood (above) in 2010. [Deadline]

 

San Andreas

San Andreas Clip: In a new San Andreas clip, helicopter pilot Dwayne Johnson attempts to rescue Carla Gugino, who is trapped on top on a tall building that is collapsing, surrounded by even taller buildings that are collapsing, shortly after a massive earthquake in Los Angeles. The disaster action movie opens in theaters on May 29. [Movies Coming Soon]
