Avengers: Age of Ultron: Hmm, we're sensing a trend here. One day after Robert Downey Jr. shared a photo from the set of Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron, his Hulk costar Mark Ruffalo shared two photos via social media, one featuring himself and Downey, and the other a mysterious shot of Scarlett "Black Widow" Johansson. The movie opens on May 1, 2015. [Tumblr]

The Jungle Book: Speaking of Scarlett Johansson, she and Lupita Nyong'o (Academy Award winner for 12 Years a Slave) are in talks to star in Disney's live-action/CGI hybrid The Jungle Book under the direction of Jon Favreau. Johnansson would play a villainous, hypnotizing python, while Nyong'o would perform as a mother wolf who adopts the man-child Mowgli. They would join Idris Elba, who will play Shere Khan, the man-eating tiger. Another competing Jungle Book project is set up at Warner Bros. with director Andy Serkis, who has hinted at a darker, grittier take on the material. [Heat Vision]



The Heart: Financier Indian Paintbrush agreed to back action-comedy The Heart for a reported $18.5 million budget, written and to be directed by Jim Rash and Nat Faxon (The Way Way Back), with Kristen Wiig, Sam Rockwell and Allison Janney on board to star. But now the company is "rethinking" its commitment due to budget concerns, leaving the black-market organ-transport movie in jeopardy. [The Wrap]

Sex Tape Trailer: Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel star as a longtime couple who decide to spice up their sex life by making a sex tape, only to accidentally upload it into "the cloud" and then frantically try to get it back. A new, green-band trailer for Sex Tape, due out on July 25, leaves out the profanities, though it's still pretty "skin-tastic," so exercise caution before pressing "play"! [Sony]
