- Mother, my second pick for Duty Free Movies, took home Best Picture, Screenwriter and Actress at the Asian Film Awards last night. Magnolia Pictures began a limited US run of Joon-ho Bong's latest film on March 12th and will be expanding it periodically, so keep your eyes peeled for listings at your local art house theater. Hopefully the win gives it an even wider release (I doubt it will).

- AngryFilms, the outfit owned by producer Don Murphy, has wisely optioned the film rights to Little Brother, a great young adult novel from BoingBoing.net co-editor and sci-fi author Cory Doctorow. The search is currently on for writers and directors.

- According to Pajiba, who dutifully note that this rumor comes from someone other than their usually reliable birdy, Rachel McAdams is attached to take on the Belen Rueda role in the Mark Pellington (The Mothman Prophecies) directed remake of the superb Spanish haunted house gem The Orphanage. Their same source also has McAdams attached to the Mark Kruger-penned We Have Always Lived in the Castle, so even if they're only 50% right, we'll be getting at least one McAdams horror movie in our near future.

- Miley Cyrus says her next album is probably going to be her last for a while, as the youngster switches from the music industry to the film industry. I'd make a joke about this if I weren't currently listening to "Party in the USA"...
