Anita: Uma Thurman will take on the challenge of playing Anita Bryant, a beauty pageant winner turned pop singer turned spokesperson for the Florida Citrus Commission turned outspoken critic of gay rights. The movie, titled Anita, will be directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman, the team who recently made a biopic about the controversial adult film star Linda Lovelance. [The Hollywood Reporter]

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon II - The Green Destiny: Michelle Yeoh is set to return in the sequel to Ang Lee's Academy Award-winning martial arts picture. Based on Silver Vase, Iron Knight, another book in a series by Crouching Tiger author Wang Dulu, the movie will also star Donnie Yen; the legendary Yuen Woo Ping (fight choreographer for The Matrix) will direct. Production is scheduled to begin in March 2014. [Screen Daily]

Last Vegas Trailer: Michael Douglas is getting married! And, like a senior citizen's version of The Hangover, he's taking three friends with him to Las Vegas so they can party like it's... 1959. Academy Award winner Douglas is joined by fellow Oscar winners Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman and Kevin Kline for the raucous teaser trailer; the movie will party on down in theaters on November 1. [Yahoo! Movies]

The Hangover Part III Red-Band Trailer: Speaking of The Hangover, the final red-band (very definitely NSFW) trailer recalls all the good, dirty fun from the first two installments before plunging into the adults-only mania of Part III. It's strangely sentimental for a moment or two, but, rest assured, all the R-rated naughty bits are intact. The movie opens on May 24. [Jo Blo]
