- Adrien Brody has won his lawsuit against the producers of Giallo, with the judge ruling that the Italian horror film can't be released in the U.S. until Brody gets paid, adding that the actor is "suffering, and will continue to suffer, immediate and irreparable harm." Come on, judge, there's no harm on this Earth a Brodyquest can't repair.

- Frequent Pirates of the Caribbean director Gore Verbinski is in talks to direct Disney's The Lone Ranger, reuniting him with producer Jerry Bruckheimer, the film's Tonto, Johnny Depp, and piles and piles of cash.

- Gael Garcia Bernal will play boxing great Roberto Durán in Jonathan Jakubowicz's biopic, Hands of Stone--a film being sold as "an effort to appeal to the Hispanic market." Al Pacino is reportedly considering the part of legendary trainer Ray Arcel, just to make sure his name is attached in case this usurps Scarface.

- Relativity Media has secured the rights to The Final Destination director David R. Ellis's still-untitled 3-D shark movie. As if "3-D Shark Movie" isn't enough of a title.
