- Need a sure sign that Timur Bekmambetov has become quite the busy man since making the move from Russia to Hollywood? I no longer need to look up how to spell his last name. He's been producing a lot lately, but it looks like he's finally settled on a new directorial project: an adaptation of Peter Ackroyd's novel The Casebook of Victor Frankenstein. By my memory, this marks at least the third, relatively high-profile Frankenstein project to get the green light; the other two being Guillermo del Toro's tentative Frankenstein re-imagining and the very cool sounding monster-as-P.I. flick I, Frankenstein.

- Magnolia Pictures has picked up Stateside distribution rights for The Extra Man, a Sundance 2010 debut directed by Shari Springer Berman based off Jonathan Ames' novel. No precise theatrical release date is set, but late July is the target.
