Set in New York just after WWII, Truman Capote‘s reflective portrayal of a wealthy 17-year-old ‘Summer Crossing’ is one of the books that made a difference to Scarlett Johansson. She loves Capote’s first novel so much that she will adapt his near-lost novel. The film is Johansson’s feature-length directorial debut (she has previously directed a short, These Vagabond Shoes, starring Kevin Bacon). Penned in the 1940s, ‘Summer Crossing’ was lost for more than 50 years before being rescued and rediscovered at an auction in 2004. The project was announced as her directorial debut nearly two years ago. Johansson said in a statement: Several years ago »

Scarlett Johansson has signed on to helm an adaptation of Truman Capote's near-lost novel "Summer Crossing," which centers on a teenage debutante who falls in love with and pursues a Jewish parking attendant instead of traveling to Paris in the summer of 1945. This will be Johansson's first feature as a director. "Summer Crossing" was never published by Capote himself, who scrapped the manuscript altogether. But a janitor in his building salvaged it from the trash bins, and in 2004 the work appeared for auction and was published. Oleg Boyko ("Sin City: A Dame to Kill For") is set to produce, with Aldamisa Entertainment shopping the film at Cannes. (Johansson recently became attached to Aldamisa title "Chef," to be directed by Jon Favreau.) Johansson has previously directed short film "These Vagabond Shoes," starring Kevin Bacon, which was made available as a bonus to 2009's anthology "New York, I Love You." Watch below. »

Scarlett Johansson has always been an immeasurably talented actress who unfortunately finds herself all too frequently underrated, mostly because she's so super-hot that she can stop traffic and make people's ice cream cones melt. Thankfully, as Variety reports out of Cannes, that Johansson will be able to show a different side of herself that doesn't involve skin tight outfits or being the token female in a group full of macho male superheroes, as she embarks on her directorial feature debut — an adaptation of Truman Capote's nearly-lost novel "Summer Crossing."
The project will be produced by Oleg Boyko, who has "Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For 3D" (yes, that's really what they're calling it) coming out this fall, and is based on a novel that Capote initially discarded. (A janitor found them and the pages resurfaced in a 2004 auction and were finally published.) The plot concerns a 17-year-old debutant who, »

Kevin Bacon and James Purefoy brought to life the dark and creepy battle between Ryan Hardy and Joe Carroll on The Following this year, revealing that anyone can be a follower, death is around the corner and writing the perfect novel is easier said then done.
But was the freshman season a true murderous masterpiece? Or did it quality drop as storylines repeated themselves? See what we thought of The Following Season 1 in our latest TV Fanatic Report Card...
Best episode: The pilot really got the ball rolling on what type of show The Following would be and the creepy, gritty, dark, and intense aspects of the show ramped up to a riveting and best episode, "The Siege." Ryan Hardy not only closed in on Paul, Emma, and Jacob, but it felt like we were at a game changing moment. Everything felt like it was all going to be exposed and explored, »

Jeff Bridges is best known for appearing in dramas such as 2009′s Crazy Heart, which garnered the actor an Oscar, and the Coen brothers’ 1998 noir-stoner comedy classic The Big Lebowski, which garnered him an army of “Duderino”-quoting fans. But Bridges’ filmography also features a surprisingly large amount of sci-fi and fantasy movies, including 1976′s King Kong remake, 1984′s Starman, the two Tron movies, the first Iron Man film, and now this summer’s Robert Schwentke-directed R.I.P.D., in which he and Ryan Reynolds play dead, but still extremely active, law enforcers.

A new poster for "R.I.P.D." has made its way online, and it offers a bit more exposition than the last one did. Touting the tagline, "Defending our world one soul at a time," the poster teases the supernatural forces at work in the upcoming movie.
Nothing screams, "Watch this movie!" like a R.I.P.D. car getting sucked up through a gaping hole in the sky, and this poster seems to try to underline the crazy ridiculous action sequences that will take place in the comic book adaptation. The trailer already showed off "R.I.P.D.'s" "Men in Black"-meets-"Bleach" vibe, and that's pretty much what this new image reveals as well.
It's nice that Universal Pictures is playing up the most exciting element of the "R.I.P.D." film: the partnership between Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds. Seeing those two work opposite one another is an exciting prospect and -- not to keep »
