However he slowly starts to realise she isn't the woman she thought she was. The story comes from The Hollywood Reporter through Coming Soon.

Larry David and Evan Rachel Wood are set to star in Woody Allen's next film which will be filming in New York and is, as yet, untitled, according to Entertainment Weekly through Coming Soon.

FamkeJanssen.jpgFamke Janssen, Rip Torn and Terry Kinney are starring in Turn the River, according to Variety, which tells the story of a mother trying to raise US $50,000 in order to fight to gain custody of her son. To do this she turns to playing high stakes pool. Chris Eigemen wrote and is set to direct the film and also star, he previously starred alongside the beautiful Janssen in the excellent The Treatment (Filmstalker review).

Hayden Panettiere is to star in Daydream Nation, a teenage comedy which may also star Kieran Culkin. Michael Goldbach will move from screenwriter to director with the film which will see Panettiere play a sharp and hardened teenager with Culkin playing her boyfriend. It's supposed to be a modern coming of age story that is being compared to Juno. The news from Reuters through Yahoo News sounds like a bad choice for Panettiere.

Reuters through Yahoo News tells us that a draft deal between the WGA and the AMPTP could be seen by Friday, meaning an end to the strike really is coming.



Turn the River was filmed last year and has already won 2 awards at the Hamptons film festival. Variety was just reporting that the film had been picked up for distribution.

Well that's good then, people can see it for the first time.
