TV NEWS: "Dollhouse" Getting Shutdown?

Looks like "Dollhouse" is being gradually cancelled. The series will take a break during November sweeps and return in December to air the remaining back-to-back episodes as a last ditch effort to stay relevant. However, there are signs that any chance of it being revived are non-existent. Rumors are buzzing that Joss Whedon is directing an episode of "Glee," and may stay on permanently. Random right? Check out what the cast is up to:

Eliza Dushku (Echo) is attached to the thriller Valediction, about a father (Ben Barnes) who thinks he can communicate with his daughter who is stuck in a coma.

Fran Kranz (Topher) managed to secure a role in a horror thriller co-written by Whedon and Drew Goddard ("Lost" and Cloverfield) called The Cabin in the Woods.

Tahmoh Penikett (Paul) is set for a SyFy miniseries called "Riverworld," which is based on Philip Jose Farmer's novels. He'll be in the lead as a journalist who dies in an explosion with his fiancée, and wakes up in a world populated by everyone who has died. "They soon team up with Mark Twain and other resurrected souls to travel upstream in an attempt to find what who or what is behind this."

Enver Gjokaj (Victor) just wrapped Stone with Robert Deniro, Edward Norton, and Milla Jovovich. The thriller centers on a "convicted arsonist who looks to manipulate a parole officer into a plan to secure his parole by placing his beautiful wife in the lawman's path."

Dichen Lachman (Sierra) will star in the crime drama Sunday Punch, an indie about "a ring girl who decides it's high time to get out from under the thumb of a local gangster, and burn every bridge she can on the way out."

Olivia Williams (Adelle) has two films on the horizon, a biopic of the punk-rock founder Ian Dury called Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll, and Ewan McGregor and Pierce Brosnan's mystery thriller The Ghost, about a ghostwriter who uncovers secrets while writing the former British prime minister's memoir.
