- A new Brave featurette by way of France comes our way showing a lot more new scenes with references to the wish-gone-wrong and that ferocious bear. I really can't wait to see how all this unfolds onscreen.
- Gary Ross is not retuning for Catching Fire. He cites the tight production schedules as an issue. After days of will he/won't he, The Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire will definitely have another director. The Hunger Games has spent the third weekend on top so I doubt Lionsgate will have a problem finding another to fill Ross' shoes.
- Joseph Gordon-Levitt has dropped out of Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained as he doesn't have the time as he is focusing on his directorial debut. Don't worry, Gordon-Levitt fans, he still has Premium Rush, Looper, Lincoln and a little movie called The Dark Knight Rises coming out this year.
- Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity starring George Clooney and Sandra Bullock will feature some very long shots. According to executive producer Chris DeFaria, who spoke at a conference at USC, the opening sequence will contain a one 17-minute take and many shots will be 6-10 minutes long. The film, however, is only two hours. The cinematographer for this film is Emmanuel Lubezki (The Tree of Life). What do you think? Are you looking forward this new style by Cuaron?
