If “Toy Story 3” left you with a lingering hope for the continuing adventures of Woody and Buzz, don’t worry — they’re coming.
We already knew about the Hawaii-centric short attached to “Cars 2,” and now comes word of another “Toy Story” tale that’ll play in front of “The Muppets,” arriving just in time for Christmas! There’s no word on the short’s story, but here’s hoping that it involves a return trip to Sunnyside.
Forget True Grit
Oscar contender and “True Grit” breakout star Hailee Steinfeld won’t be going away anytime soon, thankfully. The erstwhile Mattie Ross is staying in the Paramount family with “Forgotten,” a new film based on the upcoming Cat Patrick novel. Steinfeld stars as London Lane, a 16-year-old girl who loses her memory every night, only to wake up the next morning with visions of the future.
Cracking The Code
IGN has a new clip from “Source Code,” the Duncan Jones-directed thriller starring Jake Gyllenhaal as a military man forced to live through a train bombing over and over again until he foils the terrorists’ plot. In the clip, Gyllenhaal’s character finds out what’s at stake if he fails in his mission.
Great Hope At The Office
Meryl Streep recently settled on a deal to star in “Great Hope Springs,” David Frankel’s drama about a loveless marriage on the verge of collapse after over 30 years. Now, Steve Carell is on board as well, signing on to play a marriage therapist who attempts to salvage the pair’s relationship.
The Clock Ticks Again
Looks like Kiefer Sutherland is heading back to the small screen, but those of you hoping for a “24” revival can put those dreams to bed: although the project is set up at Fox, Sutherland would be moving on from Jack Bauer for a leading role in “Touch,” a new drama from “Heroes” creator Tim Kring about an autistic boy who can predict events before they happen. Sutherland would play the boy’s father.
“50/50″ Release Date
The dramedy formerly known as “I’m With Cancer” has a new title and a release date: it’s called “50/50″ and it’s out on September 30, 2011. The Seth Rogen and Joseph Gordon-Levitt-starring film focuses on a young man’s struggle with cancer, and despite the intense subject matter, Rogen and JGL’s involvement virtually guarantees some laughs.
