But he's not going on a vacation: he's going to direct a movie. 'Rosewater' will not only be Stewart's first time behind the camera, it will be something completely out of his regular wheelhouse.

‘Olympus Has Fallen’ Featurette: Full-Tilt Action in the White House

'Olympus Has Fallen' is in the bizarre position of being the first of two "terrorists take over the White House" movies coming out in 2013. We'll have to wait until 'White House Down' arrives in June before we can make any immediate comparisons, but right now, we feel like the one starring Channing Tatum will be better worth our time than the one starring Gerard Butler.

Sam Mendes and John Logan Bringing ‘Penny Dreadful’ to Showtime

Yesterday, we ran a rumor that director Sam Mendes and screenwriter John Logan (both of them fresh off the massive success of 'Skyfall') were working on a 'Frankenstein' TV seres for Showtime. Well, it turns out that we were half right. The name of the series is 'Penny Dreadful' and while it will feature Dr. Frankenstein and his infamous creation, they will be part of an ensemble that includes other supernatural literary characters, including Dorian Gray and key figures from Bram Stoker's 'Dracula.'
