Chris Maybach has been enjoying excellent buzz for producing Sundance favorite Martha Marcy May Marlene, but don’t think he’s been resting on his laurels. Maybach has two more films in post-production — Sean Baker’s Starlet and Andrew Dosunmu’s Mother of George — and is in the process of casting yet another project, which he will direct himself.

The new drama, titled The Low Road, follows a young drifter who returns to his hometown and gets wrapped up in a conflict involving two old men on the verge of losing their farm. Maybach told Screen Daily that he has put out offers to Nick Nolte and Tom Waits for the parts of the two older men, though as The Playlist points out, the $1 million budget means that getting both actors may be a bit of a stretch. (Waits has done a song called ‘Lowside of the Road,’ though, so that’s one more reason to think of him for the role.) The film is scheduled to begin shooting in late 2011 or early 2012.

After the jump, Peter Bogdanovich signs on for a supernatural thriller with Super 8 star Joel Courtney, and Colin Salmon looks for Retributon.

We already knew a fifth Resident Evil film was on the way, so now comes the totally unsurprising news that Milla Jovovich and Paul W.S. Anderson are set to return to the franchise once again. Jovovich, who’s starred in all four previous installments, will be reprising her role as protagonist Alice in Resident Evil: Retribution. Anderson, meanwhile, will be returning to the director’s chair. Although Anderson has written and produced all of the films in the series — he’s writing and producing the new one as well — he’s only directed two of the earlier entries: the original Resident Evil, and the 2010′s Resident Evil: Afterlife.

But while Jovovich and Anderson are boarding the film, it looks like another member of the team is on her way out. Read more details after the jump.

‘Dirty Girl’ Trailer: Juno Temple Hits the Road

Here’s the trailer for Dirty Girl, the film that Harvey Weinstein picked up after it debuted at TIFF last year. The mogul put on his ‘Harvey Scissorhands’ name badge when dealing with this one, having nearly 20 minutes cut out of the original 109-minute running time to bring it into the realm of a broad, more mainstream 90-minute comedy. Director Abe Sylvia reportedly likes the cut, and this first trailer for the edited version certainly suggests something broad and not terribly challenging.

Juno Temple, the rising British star who appeared in Atonement, Notes on a Scandal and Kaboom before landing a role in The Dark Knight Rises, plays a brassy, raunchy and confrontational Oklahoma high school girl in 1987. She and her in the closeted best friend (played by Jeremy Dozier, who looks like the film’s highlight) road trip to California to find the girl’s real father. Read More »

We’ve already seen some images and a teaser for Paul W.S. Anderson‘s 3-D “reboot” of The Three Musketeers. Now, a just-released full-length trailer is offering the best look yet at Anderson’s take on 17th century France — and apparently, his version involves flying war blimps. Because why not, I guess.

Loosely based on the classic novel by Alexandre Dumas, The Three Musketeers follows the iconic trio (Matthew MacFadyen, Luke Evans and Ray Stevenson) and their young new teammate D’Artagnan (Logan Lerman) as they fight to save their continent from a powerfully malevolent trio of baddies: Cardinal Richlieu (Christoph Waltz), the Duke of Buckingham (Orlando Bloom with evil facial hair and evil-er eyeliner) and the infamous assassin Milady de Winter (Milla Jovovich).
