Vanity Fair - March 2014

Vanity Fair: The cover of Vanity Fair magazine's annual "Hollywood" issue is considered a bellweather for the hottest actors in Hollywood. This year's edition has just been revealed -- click the photo above to open a larger version in a new window -- showcasing a dozen stars, from the well-established George Clooney and Julia Roberts to up-and-comers like Brie Larson, Michael B. Jordan and Lupita Nyong'o. [Vanity Fair]

The Lego Movie: Warner Bros. is making plans for a sequel to The Lego Movie, which doesn't even open in theaters until Friday. Two writers have been hired: Jared Stern (The Internship, Mr. Popper’s Penguins) and Michelle Morgan (Girl Most Likely). Advance word of mouth has been quite positive, and clearly the studio is confident that The Lego Movie will be a big hit. [The Wrap]

The Breach: David Goyer, who cowrote Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy as well as Man of Steel and other blockbuster movies for Warner Bros., will direct The Breach, a sci-fi action thriller for competing studio Lionsgate. The story follows a corrupt ex-cop in an adventure "featuring a beautiful survivor, assassins, a secret organization, alien technology and an end-of-the-world scenario." Lionsgate has placed the project on a fast track to production. [The Hollywood Reporter]

Alan Partridge Trailer: Back in the 1990s, Steve Coogan created the character Alan Partridge, a politically incorrect British radio personality, and now he's playing him again in a big-screen version. The very funny trailer for Alan Partridge sets up the premise, with a disgrunted ex-employee (Colm Meaney) taking over a radio station and agreeing to talk only with Mr. Partridge. The movie will be available on VOD on February 27 and in theaters on April 4. []
