Jack Black, Nicolas Cage, and Steve Carell in Talks for Charlie Kaufman’s Musical FRANK OR FRANCIS

Jack Black, Nicolas Cage, and Steve Carell are in talks to star in Charlie Kaufman’s next directorial feature, Frank or Francis. Kaufman is also brewing another collaboration with his Being John Malkovich/Adaptation director Spike Jonze with Joaquin Phoenix attached to star — until today, that seemed to be in pole position on Kaufman’s slate. However, Deadline says Frank or Francis is tentatively scheduled for a 2012 start, a more definitive date with more bankable stars than Phoenix circling.
Details are mostly under wraps, but here’s the logline: “The film chronicles a volatile back and forth between a film director (Frank) and an online blogger (Francis), who takes delight in berating his cinematic talent.” Oh, and it’s a musical. More after the jump. http://collider.com/jack-black-nicolas-cage-steve-carell-frank-or-francis/104328/

Bel Ami Trailer Helps Women Live Out Their Robert Pattinson Seduction Fantasiespublished: 2011-07-22 17:27:41 Author: Josh Tyler
This trailer for Bel Ami gets it. The movie stars Robert Pattinson and someone involved somewhere in their marketing department seems to not only understand who he is, but who his audience is. Robert Pattinson is the girl-crush of every woman who has ever read or will read a romance novel. Women want to fantasize about being seduced by him, bedded by him, swept off their feet by him. So the first trailer for Bel Ami is nothing but a series of sequences in which Robert Pattinson does that to a series of different women of all ages.
The first trailer for Bel Ami covers Robert Pattinson’s entire seduction demographic from young (Christina Ricci) to middle-aged (Uma Thurman) to much more than middle-aged (Kristin Scott Thomas). It’s as if someone walked into Comic Con’s Hall H during the Twilight panel, wrote down what everyone there wanted, and walked out to craft a trailer for Bel Ami which would satisfy that.
