This sounds just about perfect. We've been following the development of filmmaking Dan Trachtenberg ever since his short Portal: No Escape blew up online a few years back. He's been attached to Y: The Last Man and a few other projects, but is now focused on developing a movie called Valencia, a secret micro-budget sci-fi story in development at Bad Robot set mostly in an underground cellar of sorts. Variety is now reporting that Trachtenberg has cast Mary Elizabeth Winstead to star in the film, which will also feature John Goodman (what - awesome?!) in the cast. I'm so glad this project is starting to actually come together. So what is Valencia about?

Photos: Lebowski Fest Returns to New York to Celebrate The Coen Brothers' Cult Classic Film

24 August 2014 | The Daily BLAM! | See recent The Daily BLAM! news »

The Big Lebowski, a Raymond Chandler-esque comedy crime caper from Joel Coen and Ethan Coen, pivots around a case of mistaken identity complicated by extortion, double-crosses, deception, embezzlement, sex, pot, and gallons of White Russians -- made with fresh cream, please. In 1991, unemployed '60s refugee Jeff "The Dude" Lebowski (Jeff Bridges) grooves into his laid-back Los Angeles lifestyle. One of the laziest men in La, he enjoys hanging with his bowling buddies, pompous security-store owner Walter Sobchak (John Goodman) and mild-mannered ex-surfer Donny (Steve Buscemi). However, the Dude's life takes an alternate route the afternoon two goons break into his threadbare Venice, California, bungalow, rough him up, and urinate on his living room rug. Why? Because Jackie Treehorn (Ben »

Tues Top Ten: Hottest Hotties of 1989

19 August 2014 9:11 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Here's abstew to continue our celebration of 1989 as the 'year of the month'. Happy 25th, 1989!

As we look back at 1989 in preparation for the Smackdown, it's important not to forget what the movies have always been about: really attractive people. The Me Decade of the 80's, perhaps the greatest/craziest time in regards to fashion and hairstyles, if they taught us anything at all, it isn't that less is more. Oh, no. More is More! More shoulder pads, more eye shadow, more crunchy perms with mall bangs. So let's celebrate the 80's excess with these cinematic hotties of 1989. 

Honorable Mention: Julia Roberts "Blush and Bashful Hottie", Daniel Day-Lewis "Method Actor Hottie", Meg Ryan "I'll Have What She's Having Hottie", Kenneth Branagh "New Shakespearian Hottie", Nicole Kidman "Just An Ozzie Girl On a Boat With Billy Zane Hottie"

10. Sean Connery
