Jennifer Lawrence / Amy Schumer

Jennifer Lawrence: We heard about a collaboration between Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer in August, when word broke that the two would be writing a script together for a movie in which they would play sisters. Now Lawrence has provided more details, explaining that Schumer will portray an airport worker who has harbored a lifelong dream of becoming a flight attendant; she also describes her own role: "I'm a MESS." She says she watched Schumer in her breakout hit Trainwreck and decided: "Yep, we're made for each other." [ET]


Out of the Furnace

The Glass Castle: Woody Harrelson is in talks to star in The Glass Castle. It's the true story of a woman who left home after surviving a challenging childhood as the daughter of "severely dysfunctional" parents, only to see them move to be near her again in New York. Brie Larson is still in talks for the leading role; she and director Destin Daniel Cretton previously worked together on Short Term 12. [Deadline]


The Witcher

The Witcher: Video game series The Witcher is heading to the big screen. Tomasz Baginski, who directed the introductory scenes for two of the game installments, is set to helm a new movie; a previous version was released in 2001. The games revolve around "a nomadic monster hunter for hire, and his duel world of men and beasts." The first in what is hoped to be a film and television franchise is aiming for theatrical release in 2017. [Coming Soon]



Concussion Trailer: Will Smith stars in real-life drama Concussion as a doctor who discovers a football-related brain trauma, and then tries to bring it to public attention despite the vigorous protests of the NFL. A new trailer illustrates his dilemma well. Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Alec Baldwin, and Albert Brooks also star; the movie opens in theaters on December 25. [Sony]
