Armie Hammer, who got his big break as the Winklevoss twins in The Social Network, has landed the role The Lone Ranger in the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced film of the same name.

Warner Bros. is hoping to tap into some young adult magic with an adaptation of The Lost Years of Merlin, which Ed Whitworth has just been hired to write for Green Lantern producer Donald De Line.

JT Petty is a busy man these days. He's just wrapped up the 3D exorcist comedy Hellbenders and now he'll be heading to Japan to make Haunted Temple.

Head over to Film School Rejects to see the full poster for the much-buzzed French thriller, Point Blank, which comes to US shores July 29th.

British distributor Vertigo Films is gearing up to make a sequel to Gareth Edwards' post-alien invasion flick, Monsters.  Edwards, who is busy prepping Godzilla, won't be returning to direct.

Chuck hottie Yvone Strahovski has been cast as Seth Rogen's love interest in the road comedy My Mother's Curse.

Warner Bros. will reteam The Other Guys stars Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg on the football comedy Turkey Bowl (which is not a remake of the indie Turkey Bowl, which became a big festival favorite earlier this year).

And finally, a clean look at the poster for The Muppets:
