FILM: Tom Cruise's Son in Red Dawn Remake, Eminem's Next Film, and more

• Looks like Jaden Smith is about to have some competition. Tom Cruise's adopted son Connor will be apart of the ensemble cast of the upcoming Red Dawn remake. The film will follow "a group of teenagers [who] look to save their town from an invasion of Chinese and Russian soldiers."

Gemma Arterton beat out Noomi Rapace (Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), Diane Kruger (Inglorious Basterds), and Eva Green (Quantum of Solace) for the role of Gretel for the dark fairytale Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters.

• Rapper Eminem's next feature film venture will be the crime thriller Random Acts of Violence. He'll play an ex-con who is forced by the FBI to become a snitch on his former gang.

• I was sincerely disinterested in the sequel to The Clash of the Titans, dubbed Wrath of the Titans. The film was fun, but not worth rewatching. Then I heard the news that Edgar Ramirez (Domino, The Bourne Ultimatum, Vantage Point, and Che) was offered the role of the God of War and Toby Kebbell (RocknRolla and Prince of Persia) was offered the role of the Phoenician King of Tyre. Now THAT I'll sign up for.

• The Monsters, Inc. sequel will be a prequel. It'll show them at The University of Fear, and they'll be frenemies at first. Adorable.
