- Hollywood, you don't need to remake every significant foreign film, especially those which the English-language version won't have any wide appeal than the original. Case in point: a redo of Departures, which won the Oscar a couple years ago, probably won't have any more explosions, vampires or twist endings than the Japanese film did.
- Fans of last year's acclaimed Chilean film The Maid have something new to look forward to from director Sebastian Silva, a more universal work titled Old Cats, about an elderly couple that gets a potentially lucrative visit from their daughter and her girlfriend.
- Stephen Bishop will play former outfielder David Justice in the adaptation of Moneyball. If he knows what's good for him, he'll prepare for the role by going out with Halle Berry -- though I doubt she'll want to relive the experience.
