In other news...

Like I did a few days ago, this is gonna be come a regular feature on Kenoncinema. Wonder what's been going on in the world of cinema? Just check into my site every few days and I'll give you a nice little round-up about what's going on.

Well this should be interesting. Bill Murray playing FDR? Looks like he's going straight for the Oscars this upcoming year. Let's hope he's not in over his head. I can't really gauge how I feel about his performance yet judging from this trailer. Here's a little plot outline from its IMDB page:
"The story of the love affair between FDR and his distant cousin Margaret Stuckley, centered around the weekend in 1939 when the King and Queen of the United Kingdom visited upstate New York. "

And there are more trailers to show you! Check out the teaser trailer for the next Bond film "Skyfall":

Andrew Dominik's film "Killing Them Softly" starring Brad Pitt has gotten a pretty cool looking poster although it's not the official one yet. Check it out (via ThePlaylist):

Check out the very teaser-y teaser trailer for Anchorman 2 which comes out in 2013:

In some pretty awesome turn of events at Cannes Film Festival, The Weinstein Company showed previews to Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained," Paul Thomas Anderson's "The Master," and David O. Russell's "The Silver Linings Playbook." Check out what Sasha Stone from Awards Daily had to say about the footage.

Remember the last "In other news..." when I mentioned that Wes Anderson was half-way done with his next screenplay? Well, the first draft is finished (at the very least) and it looks like he'll definitely be re-teaming with Owen Wilson who is absent from "Moonrise Kingdom." (via The Playlist and FilmStage)

Another filmmaker whose current film is playing at Cannes is John Hillcoat. His film "Lawless" is playing out to pretty good reviews in France and it looks like his next film is already underway. It's called "Triple Nine" and Shia LaBeouf will be attached to star. (via ThePlaylist again)

Finally, a filmmaker who has been out of the game for too long: Todd Field. You may remember him for such films as "In the Bedroom" and "Little Children." Well, his last one Little Children came out in 2006 and he's been kinda quiet ever since. But it looks like his next film "The Creed of Violence" will start shooting early next year thanks to Cross Creek Pictures, they have decided to fund the film. I'm sure more details will be on its way as it gets closer to 2013. Can it be shot, edited, and released in the same year? Let's hope so. That'll just add to what's shaping up to be an impressive film slate for next year. (via Chicago Tribune).
