EW confirms Gyllenhaal's involvement, and the word on Pine comes from Deadline. The pair would take on the roles of Cinderella's Prince and Rapunzel's Prince, but there is no word as to which actor is up for which part. Already attached to the project are Johnny Depp as The Wolf and Meryl Streep as The Witch. Rob Marshall will pull double duty as producer and director.
Up next for Depp is Disney's "The Lone Ranger," in theaters July 3. For Streep, it's the star-studded drama, "August: Osage County." Gyllenhaal is currently filming "Prisoners" with Hugh Jackman and Terrence Howard. And Pine reprises his role as James T. Kirk in Paramount's "Star Trek Into Darkness," opening May 15.

The first image from An Enemy has been released.
Denis Villeneuve's thriller follows a man (Gyllenhaal) who sets out to find his exact look-alike after spotting him in a film.
Watch a trailer for Gyllenhaal's last film End of Watch below: »
Jake Gyllenhaal takes the slow but steady approach to moviemaking, appearing in one movie per year, from 2009's "Brothers" to last year's "End Of Watch," but it seems French-Canadian filmmaker Denis Villeneuve has lit a fire under him. He's currently in front of cameras with the filmmaker on the long developing thriller "Prisoners," but last year, Gyllenhaal pulled double duty on "An Enemy" and now the first pic from movie is here. Yes, that's right, you're getting a double dose of Gyllenhaal. Co-starring Isabella Rossellini, Melanie Laurent and Sarah Gadon, and based on the book by literary legend José Saramago, the story follows a history teacher (Gyllenhaal) who lives with his wife (Laurent) only to discover the couple has an exact physical double (with Gadon playing Laurent's opposite). And soon, two Jakes square off. "Face/Off"? Not quite, but something that sounds like an intriguing psychological thriller. There's no release date for this one yet. »

Back in February, Davis admitted that she is "tired" of playing maids in movies.
She explained: "I'm tired of that. We played - me and Octavia [Spencer], Aunjanue Ellis, Roslyn Ruff - we all played maids in The Help and it was fabulous, it's a fabulous story because we were personalised and all of those things.
"But I think that people need to see an African-American in the 21st century integrated in the life of this town and family who's not in servitude."
Last year, Davis was nominated for a 'Best Actress' award at the Oscars for her role in The Help.

Tired of early 2014 Oscar predictions yet? If so, all I can suggest is consider these extended 2014 previews. If not, good, because today we take a look at the Best Supporting Actress field where I have 21 early contenders and I've left a few off for a variety of reasons that will surely be sorted out as the year moves along. To begin, I haven't included any of the ladies from Lee Daniels' The Butler as I have no idea how big or small their roles may be and I haven't added Jodie Foster to this list or my Best Actress list as I have no idea what kind of role she's playing in Neill Blomkamp's Elysium. This is what happens when you put these lists together this early, but, again, all we're looking for here is a baseline starting position and I think with these 21 contenders that's exactly what we have. »
