It seems the gig to score this month is a role in Bryan Singer's film adaptation of the British fairy tale Jack the Giant Killer.

The mythical story follows the kidnapping of a princess that disrupts the long-standing peace between humans and giants, forcing a brave farmer to lead a rescue mission into the giants' kingdom to save the fair lady.
And according to the Hollywood Reporter, Aaron Johnson, Nicholas Hoult and Aneurin Barnard are up for the part of the plucky farmer...
The old adage "A good mechanic is hard to find" proves to be especially telling in the forthcoming high-octane action flick starring Jason Statham, Donald Sutherland and Ben Foster.

Helmed by Simon West (Con Air, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider), the movie follows Bishop (Statham), a skilled "mechanic" (aka hitman) whose stealth and ability to silently kill has made him the best in the business.

Uma Thurman, Brett Ratner, Sarah Silverman, Eli Roth and Harvey Keitel were among the dozen that ripped into Tarantino with venomous humour on Wednesday.

Good news for fans of Greenberg and those who like their stories to be told with aching honesty and bravery - writer-director Noah Baumbach is reuniting with Greenberg star Ben Stiller for While We're Young and he's managed to nab so-in-demand actor-author-Oscar host James Franco for the upcoming film.
Vulture reports that offers have also been made to Cate Blanchett and Stiller's Greenberg co-star Greta Gerwig, whose unfussy, realistic performance in Baumbach's funny and poignant film signalled a move to the big(ger) leagues for the indie darling.
While We're Young details the interaction between a twentysomething Brooklyn couple who inspire an older documentarian (Stiller) and his wife (likely Blanchett if apparent schedule issues can be resolved) to loosen up and start living a more carefree life.
