Divergent

Divergent: Young actress Shailene Woodley was popping up everywhere yesterday, from the trailer for coming-of-age drama The Spectacular Now to the news that her appearance as M.J. had been cut from The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Woodley has another major role next year in the big-screen adaptation of YA sensation Divergent, and new images reveal a bit about her character's look in the movie's futuristic society. It's due out on March 21, 2014. [EW.com via Collider]

Annie: It's a hard-knock life if you're trying to cast the role of mean Miss Hannigan in Annie. Sandra Bullock, who'd already turned down the part once, returned to the bargaining table to consider it once again, but an agreement was not reached and now the talks are over and out for her, and other actresses must be courted. Carol Burnett memorably played the role in the 1982 movie; who could play her now? [The Wrap]

Locke and Key: A terrific, dark and wildly fantastical limited-run comic book series is now being developed as a motion picture. Locke and Key, written by Joe Hill and illustrated by Gabriel Rodriguez, follows the adventures of three children who discover magical keys with far-reaching and very dangerous powers. Fox TV developed it as a series and produced a pilot episode in 2011, which was not picked up. Now Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (Star Trek Into Darkness, Fringe) are producing a feature-film version. [The Hollywood Reporter]

Crystal Fairy and the Magical Cactus Trailer: Debuting at Sundance to mixed reactions, Crystal Fairy and the Magical Cactus stars Michael Cera as a young man in Chile who meets the aforementioned and offbeat Crystal Fairy (Gaby Hoffman); subsequently she joins him and his friends on some strange adventures. The movie is heading to theaters on July 12. [EW.com]
