Luke Wilson is set to return to the criminal ways that made him a star. We first got to know Wilson, as well as his brother Owen, as wannabe criminals in Wes Anderson's Bottle Rocket and now Luke's about to team up against the law again.

Among the names thrown around is True Blood star Joe Manganiello, who is full of praise for the filmmaker. "He's an unbelievable director, I'm a huge fan of 300," he recently said, adding that he'd be honoured to play the Man of Steel.
But what about other characters such as the villain? If Snyder is starting with a clean slate, we can also reject a reappearance by Kevin Spacey as Lex Luthor.
We don't know yet if Lex will be part of the story but one actor has contacted The Geek Files to put himself forward as a contender for the archvillain. »

Tyler Perry is no stranger to tackling serious subject matter and neither does he shy away from it. In his latest film for Lionsgate, he has brought together quite a gathering of talented female actors for the movie For Colored Girls. With the combined strength of their star power alone, this movie could bring quite a draw.
For Colored Girls is an adaptation of Ntozake Shange’s award nominated play For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf. Originally a choreopoem, the movie has a cast of eight women of color and follows along the original work’s lyrical structure. The focus of the film is how such weighty topics such as the betrayal of infidelity, abandonment, rape, abortion and love affect women, but especially those of color.
