Shia LaBeouf in Nymphomaniac: We’ve heard that controversial Danish director Lars von Trier was planning to make an erotic drama with sexually explicit scenes, but we never dreamed that he would be talking with Shia LaBeouf about appearing in it, but talks are ongoing. Nymphomaniac starts shooting in September with Charlotte Gainsbourg starring as a woman who relates a lifetime of sexual exploits to her husband, Stellan Skarsgaard; as it happens, the Transformers star recently appeared naked in a music video.

ALF: In more family-friendly news, the possibility that '80s TV show ALF will become a movie has moved closer to reality. The project has landed at Sony Animation, with series creators Tom Patchett and Paul Fusco serving as producers, along with Jordan Kerner (The Smurfs). Sony plans to make the film with a mixture of live-action and CGI; Fusco is expected to return as the voice of the title character, an alien who crash-lands into the life of a suburban family.

Tim Robbins: In development for several years, City of Lies is based on Arthur Phillips' short story "Wenceslas Square," which follows “two spies who fall in love while on separate missions in Prague” at the end of the Cold War. Philip Noyce (Salt) had been attached to direct, but he dropped out and actor-turned-director Tim Robbins has stepped in. Robbins hasn’t made a feature since 1999’s Cradle Will Rock, though he recently directed two episodes of HBO’s Treme. [Collider]

Zero Dark Thirty Poster: Recently, the first trailer for Kathryn Bigelow's follow-up to her Oscar-winning The Hurt Locker debuted, along with new images. Now the first poster for Zero Dark Thirty has appeared, and it's very much in the same vein as the trailer: hinting at the film's real-life basis in the military mission that targeted Osama bin Laden, without giving too much away. Kyle Chandler, Jessica Chastain and Joel Edgerton lead the ensemble cast. [The Film Stage]
