Kirk De Micco and Chris Sanders' The Croods had a rather impressive voice cast full of stars - but the sequel is evidently going even bigger. How do we know? Because all of the lead cast members will be back, and this time around joined by Leslie Mann and Kat Dennings.

As things stand, the rest of the cast includes Nicolas Cage (as Grug), Emma Stone (as Eep), Ryan Reynolds (as Guy), Catherine Keener (as Ugga) and Clark Duke (as Thunk).

DreamWorks Animation announced in April 2013 that it was working on a sequel to caveman family comedy The Croods, but given how long it takes to produce CG films generally, it’s not a shock to have to wait for updates.

This Sixties-set piece sees Isaac head an ensemble cast as a New York Mayor, who faces a powder keg of social tension when he’s instructed by authorities to house minorities in white areas. Simon is renowned for tackling major issues on an unflinchingly honest level, so this project should be perfect for his writing talents.
Winona Ryder, Catherine Keener, Alfred Molina, Bob Balaban, Latanya Richardson-Jackson and Jim Belushi will share the screen with Isaac’s beleaguered official, and the director is Paul Haggis. It looks like the cable channel are pulling out all the stops with this one.
It’ll also provide a strong counterpoint to a forthcoming production featuring Isaac »

Though the war for quality programming between HBO and Netflix still rages, the premium cable network can claim victory in this battle. HBO has won a bidding war for David E. Kelley’s limited series Big Little Lies, to star Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon.
Based on the book by Liane Moriarty, which was published in July of last year, the series will tell the dark, twisted tale of three women, all with children at the same preschool in an Australian suburb, whose lives converge and collide in unexpected ways, with deadly results. Moriary’s book was a No. 1 New York Times bestseller, and Kidman and Witherspoon have been eyeing the project to star in since August, when their respective Blossom Films and Pacific Standard banners optioned the rights.

Now here's something you don't see every day: an Alan Smithee movie. Originally shot by David O. Russell in 2008 - then under the title of "Nailed" - production was halted mid-way through proceedings due to financial difficulties. Russell then left the project two years later and it was finished in his absence, with the fictional name "Stephen Greene" getting the director's credit. All this hubbub about a little dark comedy about a small-town waitress (Jessica Biel) who is accidentally shot in the head by a nail gun. This accident results in mood swings and hypersexual behaviour, and, hopefully, comedy, with the likes of Jake Gyllenhaal, Catherine Keener, James Marsden and Tracy Morgan along for the ride. brightcove.createExperiences();Accidental Love will be released in selected cinemas on Friday, June 19. »

Anne Carey who previously executive produced Holofcener’s Friends with Money will produce. Holofcener is probably on the last drafts of the project and we can almost guarantee that muse Catherine Keener is being considered for a supporting player part.
Gist: Based on the 2008 memoir by Lee Israel, Israel was a respected biographer who fell on hard times and turned to counterfeiting the letters of deceased writers and celebrities (Humphrey Bogart, Ernest Hemingway and a laundry list of other greats) in order to pay her rent.
