James McAvoy will star alongside Jessica Chastain in a double-feature film project produced by Myriad Pictures, where a married couple living in New York deals with a life-altering experience. The originality of the project seems to stand in its point of view: the first one The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Him will adopt the husband’s point of view (James McAvoy), and the second one The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Her, the wife’s (Jessica Chastain).

After The Artist, The Weinstein Company just bought another French film: Haute Cuisine, from Wild Bunch. The comedy stars French actress Catherine Frot and novelist Jean D’Ormesson, and is about a private chef who works for the former French president François Mittérand.

Todd Field, director of Little Children is finally back with a movie titled The Creed of Violence and produced by Cross Creek Pictures. Based on a novel by Boston Teran, the story takes place during the Mexican Revolution of 1910. The shooting should start in 2013.

Gary Oldman, the man who can play anything, will be playing one of the leads in a RoboCop remake by Jose Padilha. After working for the British government in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Gary Oldman is now to play the scientist who creates RoboCop, played by Joel Kinnaman. Production should start in August 2013.

Ethan Hawke returns with Predestination. He previously worked with directors Michael and Peter Spierig on Daybreakers. Sony just acquired the domestic rights for the movie. The story is about a time traveling agency which prevents future violent crimes.

Does this sound a bit like Minority Report? Hopefully not, I still have hopes to see Ethan Hawke in a truly great role.

Viddy Well,
