Paul Rudd will star in My Idiot Brother, an indie comedy that will have the actor as “an idealist, dealing with his overbearing mother, who crashes into the homes of his three ambitious sisters and, in succession, brings truth, happiness and a sunny disposition into their lives while also wreaking havoc.” Is it any wonder that producers of Little Miss Sunshine are behind this one?
Jesse Peretz directs from a script by Evgenia Peretz (his sister) and David Schisgall. The sisters aren’t yet cast, but we should hear those names soon, as the film shoots next month. [THR]
After the break, new cast for Tilda, Deathgames, and a ‘Fight Club meets werewolves’ movie. Read More »

Warner Bros has released the first official photos from Sylvain White‘s big screen adaptation of the Vertigo label comic book The Losers, thanks to Omelete.
Originally published as a war comic feature set during World War II, The Losers was later re-imagined set against the events surrounding the war on terror. The Vertigo imprint version ran for 32 issues from 2003 to 2006. The Losers tells the story of a former Special Forces team who were betrayed by their handler Max, and left for dead following the conclusion of their operation. The team were forced to regroup and enter on a mission of revenge against Max, who has been using the CIA for his own interests.

Jason Patric is an actor I’d like to see work a lot more. He’s more choosy than most, and dismissive of a lot of mainstream fare. (Yeah, despite having Speed 2 on the resume.) So Variety‘s report that he’s joined the cast of The Losers, directed by Sylvain White, is pretty significant. His presence as the film’s bad guy just upped my interest in the project by a huge margin. Read More »
Downloading Nancy will premiere at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival.
The feature film debut of visionary music video and commercial director Johan Renck looks intense. Dubbed by some to be the best music video director in the world, Renck was just named one of Variety’s 10 Directors to Watch. I’ve even heard some people refer to Renck as the next David Fincher. The film stars Maria Bello as an unhappy wife whose online search for someone to put her out of her misery results in a torturous love affair. Co-starring Jason Patric, Rufus Sewell, and Amy Brenneman. Check it out below.
