Louis C.K.

I'm A Cop: Louis C.K. will write, direct, and star in the independent comedy I'm A Cop. The story follows a volunteer police officer who decides to follow in the footsteps of his mother, a highly decorated former officer, after she dies. The standup comedian and TV star last directed a feature film in 2001 (Pootie Tang), but he's been directing his own show Louie for years. [The Hollywood Reporter]

 

We're the Millers

It: Will Poulter (We're the Millers) is in negotiations to play Pennywise the Clown in Cary Fukunaga's adaptation of Stephen King's horror novel It. The character is a shapeshifting force of evil that preys on children; in the book, it often assumes the appearance of a middle-aged man, which makes the casting of Poulter, 22, a surprise. The new screen version will be released in two parts; production gets underway this summer. [Variety]

 

Silence

Silence: Andrew Garfield is featured in the first photo from Martin Scorsese's Silence. Garfield plays a Jesuit missionary who suffers religious persecution in 17th century Japan; he is pictured with Shinya Tsukamato as a villager. The movie is adapted from a novel by Shusako Endo; Scorsese says he's been fascinated by the material for more than 25 years. Liam Neeson and Adam Driver also star; it's due in theaters next year.

Absoutely Anything

Absolutely Anything Trailer: Simon Pegg stars as a schoolteacher who is given great power in Absolutely Anything. As the first trailer makes clear, he has a lot of fun with his newfound abilities, not realizing that they've been bestowed upon him by a group of aliens as a test. Robin Williams voices the teacher's best friend, a dog; Kate Beckinsale also stars. The movie opens in the UK this summer. [MovieClips]
