'What to Expect When You're Expecting,' the hip "users" guide to pregnancy that has resided on the New York Times' bestseller list for some 500 weeks, is going to be turned into a movie via Lionsgate. The studio has tapped Kirk Jones ('Waking Ned Devine' and 'Nanny McPhee') to direct. According to Lionsgate, the film adaptation of the book will be an ensemble rom-com "in the vein of 'Love Actually' and 'Valentine's Day.' The film is a modern look at love through the eyes of four interconnected couples experiencing the thrills and surprises of having a baby, and ultimately coming to understand the universal truth that no matter what you plan for, life doesn't always deliver what's expected."

The Cannes Film Festival has confirmed that Terrence Malick's 'The Tree of Life' will screen at this year's event, most likely in an out-of-competition slot in the official selection, according to Deadline. The Fox film -- a period piece centered around three boys growing up in the 1950s -- stars Sean Penn and Brad Pitt. Cannes will unveil its official selection next month. Woody Allen's 'Midnight in Paris' already has been slated as the opening-night film.
