John McNaughton, the helmer behind the controversial cult classic 1986 horror film Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer and the infamous 2001 thriller Wild Things, has signed on to direct his next movie, breaking his eleven year sabbatical from cinema.
Written by Stephen Lancelloti, the movie follows a married couple (Shannon & Morton) with medical backgrounds and a sick son (Charlie Tahan) who lives secluded in a controlled environment until a young girl (Natasha Calis) moves in next door and gives him hope of a better life. As the teens grow closer, the tight-knit world his over-protective mother has created begins to unravel.

It's been a really long time since Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer director John McNaughton made a horror film. Hell, it's been over a decade since he's made any kind of film for that matter. Thankfully both of those facts are about to change.
Variety reports that after an 11-year absence from the big screen, McNaughton is set to return for psychological horror thriller The Harvest, for which Michael Shannon and Samantha Morton have come aboard to star alongside Natasha Calis.
Living Out Loud Prods. is financing The Harvest for under $10 million, while Elephant Eye Films will handle international sales. In addition to Calis (The Possession), the flick co-stars Charlie Tahan (Frankenweenie), Leslie Lyles and Meadow Williams.

After making her mark in 2007's indie Rocket Science, Anna Kendrick has often played the same sort of fast-talking Type-a personality on screen. She earned an Oscar nomination doing a similar routine in Up in the Air, but she also proved she has impressive musical skills in this month's buzzed-about comedy Pitch Perfect. Now Moviehole reports that one of Kendrick's upcoming projects will allow her to put her pipes on display again, as she'll star in a film adaptation of the stage musical The Last Five Years, a love story told backward and forward at the same time through the perspectives of the two people involved. More below. Filmmaker Richard Lagravenese (finishing up Beautiful Creatures, of Living Out Loud, P.S. I Love You and Freedom Writers previously) is writing and directing the film, which is based on Jason Robert Brown's play about the struggles of a relationship. It sounds »

While it looks like Hunger Games will likely take the spot of Twilight once it wraps up this fall, Warner Bros is putting in their bid for the female-centric young adult genre in the form Beautiful Creatures. The "supernatural star-crossed romance" (ugh already) is based on Margaret Stohl's popular 2009 novel and is currently shooting right now, under the direction of Richard Lagravenese. EW.com has published a first look at the two young leads - Alden Ehrenreich (Tetro, Twixt, Stoker) and newcomer Alice Englert, who play star-crossed lovers Ethan and Alice down in South Carolina. Oh boy, this is going to get steamy quick. Here's their new first look below, a quick photo of the two of them in a rather dreamy setting. How lovely!

Ja from Mnpp here with a bit of happy news for those of us who bow down before the awesome thespian powers of Emma Thompson (and our knees hurt because we've been bowing for awhile hoping it will make her work more often, to not enough avail) - she's at work on several new projects (that Richard Lagravenese project Beautiful Creatures sounds interesting to me, but then I've been waiting 15 years for him to make something as good as Living Out Loud) and today it's been announced she's actually going to go back and play a character she already has before... and it's not Nanny McPhee! She was nominated for an Oscar for playing the human rights attorney Gareth Pierce in 1993's In the Name of the Father and she's going to play Pierce again, says Screen Daily.

Based on the first novel in a series known as the Caister Chronicles, it could be the start of a new Twilight-esque franchise, with Beautiful Creatures being followed by the subsequent books in the series Beautiful Darkness and Beautiful Chaos.

The two must confront a curse that's haunted her family for generations as they uncover dark secrets about their families, their history and their town, and Lena has to come to grips with her powers.
