  • The rumors in Hollywood have it that Robert Redford is in talks to star in "Captain America: The Winter Soldier". Redford would star in the sequel in a "senior leadership role in S.H.I.E.L.D.". This would be the first mainstream part for the actor since 2001's "Spy Game" where he co-starred with Brad Pitt. "Captain America: Winter Soldier" also stars Anthony Mackie (as Falcon), Frank Grillo (as Crossbones) and Emily VanCamp and will open on April 4, 2014.

  • Jonathan Liebesman's "Ninja Turtles" has found another cast member. Actor Alan Ritchson ("The Hunger Games: Catching Fire") will star as Raphael, one of the turtles. Previously, Megan Fox was announced to star as reporter April O'Neill. The reboot of the beloved franchise is produced by Michael Bay and will be a mix of live action and CGI characters. "Ninja Turtles" opens on June 6, 2014.

  • Actor Gary Oldman will rejoin with "The Dark Knight Rising" co-star Tom Hardy in the drama "Child 44", which is based on a Tom Rob Smith novel. The story centers on a 1950s Soviet military policeman (Hardy) who finds himself suspected of being involved in a series of child murders. The film also stars Joel Kinnaman ("The Killing") and Noomi Rapace ("Prometheus"), and is produced by Ridley Scott

  • Vera Farmiga ("Up in the Air", "Bates Motel") will join Robert Downey Jr. and Robert Duvall in the drama "The Judge". Downey stars as a successful attorney who returns to his hometown when his father (Duvall), the local judge, is suspected of murder, and he begins a private investigation while also getting back in touch with his family. Farmiga will star as a waitress who has a past with Downey's character.

  • Kiefer Sutherland will star as the villain, a Roman senator, in Paul W.S. Anderson's historical disaster flick "Pompeii". The film will blend some classic slave-in-Rome plot echoing "Gladiator" with some classic volcano disasater action. It could prove to be interesting. Also starring are Kit Harington ("Game of Thrones"), Jared Harris and Emily Browning. Anderson will use "Pompeii" as an opportunity to get away from the "Resident Evil" films and maybe actually get some recognition as a real director. The film will be in 3D. Here's hoping this will be better than "Volcano".
