I'll say this much for him: Alec Baldwin is keeping pretty busy these days. Not only is the "30 Rock" actor in talks to join the Christopher McQuarrie-directed "Mission: Impossible 5" as the head of the CIA, he's also circling the previously-announced football concussion movie starring Will Smith, according to a report today over at Deadline. His prospective role in the latter film is unknown at this time. On the TV side, meanwhile, Baldwin is currently developing a show in which he'd play a Rob Ford-esque mayor of New York City (Ford of course being the infamous Toronto mayor whose erratic public behavior set off a media firestorm last year). Written by Wells Tower and executive-produced by Baldwin, the budding project is an NBC Productions property but will be developed as a one-hour cable series. Though his frequent public outbursts have tended to obscure his career endeavors as of late, »

Writer-director Hannah Fidell's psychological drama “A Teacher” put her on Hollywood's radar following its Sundance premiere in 2013 and now the Austin, Texas-based filmmaker has wrapped her second feature, which was executive produced by Mark Duplass and his Duplass Brothers Productions. Taissa Farmiga (“American Horror Story”) and Ben Rosenfield (“Boardwalk Empire”) star as a young couple who have been together since high school. As they near the end of college, they face a series of volatile events that threaten to tear them apart forever.

Technically her sophomore point fifth of a feature (65-minuter We’re Glad You’re Here precedes A Teacher) which has amusingly gone by a vast array of titles (follow the social media folks for a visual clapboard round-up), Hannah Fidell (featured Ioncinephile of the month) has been cooking up her latest since the spring and now we’ve got official word on the make-up of the cast in the currently untitled project — a drama which will surely hit Sundance next year. Deadline reports that Taissa Farmiga (of Higher Ground fame) and Ben Rosenfield share the lead, while Joshua Leonard, Peter Vack, Jennifer Lafleur and three times a charm Lindsay Burdge are part of the supporting cast in what sounds like a psychological roller-coaster ride for a couple that are nearing the end of college — sort of the anthesis of the grown up portion in Linklater’s Boyhood.

Witches reigned supreme at the recent "American Horror Story: Coven" Q&A with Emmy voters at the TV Academy, but other cast and crew had their say, too. Actors Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Denis O'Hare, Angela Bassett and Gabourey Sidibe were joined by music score composer James Levine and others. While much of the miniseries' intrigue involved a battle over which of the show's younger witches would become the coven's supreme leader, Sidibe tells Gold Derby that the actresses fought among themselves off screen during production since they didn't know how it would all end up. -Break- At first most cast members believed Taissa Farmiga's character Zoe Benson would be the chosen one, but “then she started saying it in every episode and we were like 'You are clearly not going to be the supreme,'" Sidibe says. "And so then at the end it really started to become »
• Tom Hiddleston will star (and sing) as Hank Williams in an upcoming biopic about the country legend. I Saw The Light will be directed by Marc Abraham (Flash of Genius), who adapted the script from Colin Escott’s biography of Williams. Quite different than his role in The Avengers, Hiddleston will sing from the entire Williams catalog, with songs like “Hey, Good Lookin’,” after the rights were secured through a deal with Sony Atv. The film will follow Williams’ rise to fame before dying of heart failure at age 29. [Deadline]

There is something fascinating about the concept of a person with the ability to get into another person’s mind, with also having the ability to experience their memories. This is the case in Jorge Dorado’s film Anna. Also known in other regions as Mindscape, the film is an experience, full of the thrill of a universe that involves memory detective agencies. If just that small glimpse of a synopsis sounds like an interesting time, then well, it is everything you would expect it to be, and then some.
From the beginning, the film keeps the audience interested, hooking you immediately with a strong start. We meet John Washington, (Mark Strong), a memory detective with the ability to assist in solving crimes by getting into the minds of witnesses. Due to a traumatizing event in his past that ends up coming back to haunt him, and ultimately negatively affecting a session, »
A woman alone at home hears a noise in the other room and goes to investigate. She finds a window open that she thought she had closed and soon discovers why — an intruder is in the house and armed with a knife and malicious intent. But as she’s races in fear from one room to the next another man becomes visible to us while she runs right past him. What the what? John Washington (Mark Strong) is a memory detective. With a combination of hand-holding and a little bit of coaxing he can enter a person’s memories, whether they be formative or traumatic, and while he can’t interact with them his observations reveal information that can be used later in therapy or criminal trials. It’s a good gig if you can get it, but John is forced onto sabbatical after his latest trip down someone else’s memory lane finds his own recollections »

The story centers on an aging widower (Robert De Niro) who enters the intern program of a successful fashion website, where he is assigned to the site's founder (Anne Hathaway).

Last year Taissa Farmiga (debatably) played a sociopath in Sofia Coppola's "The Bling Ring." Her mental state is once again questioned in "Anna," a dark thriller co-starring Mark Strong. Until you see it, check out this seductive music video for "Say Goodbye," a track that appears in the film.

Following his superlative turn as a betrayed secret agent in “Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy,” Mark Strong was long overdue for a lead role. And for once the sepulchrally handsome British actor gets to be the good guy in “Anna,” a likable if overly familiar psychological thriller about a “memory detective” charged with rummaging through the repressed recall of a troubled young woman accused of a terrible crime. The film opens June 6 in limited release.
No doubt the Nsa and Google are working furiously in tandem to create a similarly helpful gizmo that fits, let’s say, inside your left nostril. But they’ll have nothing on the “remote viewing” practiced by Mindspace, a shadowy outfit headed by a psychiatrist (Brian Cox, leading with cleft chin and strange hair). The suspiciously genial shrink assigns Strong’s John Washington, a troubled seeker of truth, with flushing out the repressed traumas of Anna, »

This weekend, a powerful genre battles a powerful movie star as the Ya sensation The Fault in Our Stars opens against Tom Cruise’s sci-fi action flick Edge of Tomorrow. But who will prevail — especially when Angelina Jolie’s Maleficent is still lurking in the background?
Here’s how things might play out.
1. The Fault in Our Stars — $40 million
Sorry, Tom, but initial tracking suggests that the army of John Green fans (and some probably wondering what all the hype is about) will bump Fox’s $12 million pic to the No. 1 spot. Starring Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort, The Fault in Our Stars »

Blumhouse Productions is best known for its contributions to the horror genre, with such frightfests as Sinister, Insidious and The Purge in its body of work. But if you take one look at its upcoming slate, you’ll begin to understand that Blumhouse is looking to broaden its horizons in a big way. One of the most curious projects in the works over at the studio is a revenge Western called In A Valley of Violence. Though Ti West (The House of the Devil) scribed and also directed, the film still seems more than a little out of the way for the horror-leaning studio. That doesn’t mean, however, that we’re not looking forward to it, particularly with the cast West has lined up. Today, James Ransone joined the film, which already boasts Ethan Hawke, John Travolta, Karen Gillan and Taissa Farmiga.
I’m anticipating that additional details about »

The Western, directed by Ti West, will see Ethan Hawke feature as a mysterious drifter who arrives back in a small town looking to seek revenge on the murderer of his brother. Grease legend John Travolta co-stars, with Ransone joining as his son. This news comes alongside last week’s report that Doctor Who favourite Karen Gillan and American Horror Story starlet Taissa Farmiga had signed on to the cast, playing sisters who own a hotel in the town.
