-- Though we still have a couple months before the 2011 Sundance Film Festival announces its slate, Kevin Smith -- who's brought two films ('Clerks', 'Chasing Amy') to Park City, Utah previously -- already seems to have his eye on premiering his latest at the upcoming festival. Tweeting about his dark, tiny indie last night, Smith said, "Thank you, Jesus! Thank you, Michael Parks! Thank you, ALL of RED STATE: Today's the best day I've had on a set since 2006. #SundanceBound" Will Smith be able to recapture the fresh, brilliant energy that was born out of the festival back in 1994 when 'Clerks' took home the top prize?

-- 'Star Trek' writer Alex Kurtzman may be landing a pretty decent cast for his directorial debut, 'Welcome to People'.

-- Paul Haggis may take on scripting duties for the big-screen adaptation of 'The Equalizer', which already has Russell Crowe attached to the role originated by Edward Woodward in the late-80s TV series about a secret agent-turned-vigilante hired to solve problems. Haggis has not signed on to direct the film ... yet, though he did just direct Crowe in 'The Next Three Days', so anything is possible.
