UPDATE: According to The Wrap, the three actresses in top contention for the leading female role are currently Charlize Theron, Natalie Portman and Emily Blunt. Basically three women with the perfect trifecta of talent, beauty and brains. Good stuff.

PREVIOUSLY: Ben Affleck might've dropped out of "Focus" to make sure he could helm his little "Live By Night" project in time to meet Warner Bros.' scheduling expectations, but the "Argo" director might just be getting a chance to put off his next behind-the-lens effort just long enough to star in David Fincher's adaptation of the wildly popular Gillian Flynn thriller novel "Gone Girl."

Colin Farrell and Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain are going classical with "Miss Julie," director Liv Ullmann's take on August Strindberg's 19th-century stage play about the sexually-charged battle of wills between a wealthy socialite and one of her head servants, with the servant's fiancee popping up every now and then to make things even more interesting. Samantha Morton is also set to star. [The Hollywood Reporter] Get More »

The Top 50 Music Videos Featuring Movie Stars

Kristen Stewart Music Video
MSN
Ever since Michael Jackson and John Landis unleashed "Thriller" in 1983, shaming all that preceded it, the music video has become an art form within itself. It can be a launching pad for your career (Alicia Silverstone), a favor to a boyfriend (Courteney Cox, Evan Rachel Wood), or a way to begin rebuilding a thousand burned bridges (Mickey Rourke).

With the MTV Video Music Awards hitting MTV tomorrow at 8 p.m. ET, we've compiled a list of the 50 best based on a number of factors: creativity of video, quality of actor's performance and, for some, random dancing ability. Our only caveats: no cameos and no soundtracks. The debate begins now. Get More »

Charlize Theron has been having a pretty good time recently on film, showing her comedic range in "Young Adult" and diving into sci-fi and fantasy with scenery-chewing turns in "Prometheus" and "Snow White and the Huntsman."

But according to The Hollywood Reporter, fun time is now over, as Theron is producing and may star in a deadly serious film about the life of slain war correspondent Marie Colvin.

GALLERY: These Actresses Look Purrfect in Catsuits

"The Dark Knight Rises" is one of the most anticipated movies of this summer, not just because it's the epic conclusion to Christopher Nolan's "Dark Knight" franchise, but also because Anne Hathaway will be playing Catwoman. We're looking forward to seeing Hathaway's take on the beloved character, but we might be even more to excited to see her bring all the sexiness and sass we love about Catwoman to that iconic outfit.

Hathaway is one more in a long line of lovely ladies who have donned catsuits in movies, be it attending a costume party or kicking some serious butt. Not everyone can pull off a skin-tight suit, but these actresses make it look easy.

Flip through this gallery of fierce-looking females, and you're going to wish you had nine lives just so you could look at it over and over again. Meow!

Charlize Theron has done it all ... almost. Sci-fi? See "Prometheus." Serial killer drama? Check out her Oscar fodder "Monster." Action blast? Yep, "Snow White and the Huntsman." You get the gist.

The one area she's not really stretched her oh-so-long legs in yet is the comedy scene.

Sure, she had that guest role in "Arrested Development," and she led up last year's dark comedy hit "Young Adult," but the notoriously foul-mouthed thesp hasn't gotten to truly show off her funny bone just yet. And we've seen how funny she can be, so now's as good a time as any. Get More »
