Developments on the Academy Awards front are coming in fast and furious. First came word that Brett Ratner was resigning as Oscars producer in light of the controversial remarks he made during a "Tower Heist" public screening last weekend. Less than 24 hours later, Eddie Murphy dropped out as the show's host, leaving the biggest night in Hollywood without two of its most important creative pillars.

Well, at least one of those holes has now been filled: Imagine Entertainment co-founder Brian Grazer has been tapped to replace Ratner as producer of the 2012 Academy Awards.

24: India

Ever since the clock ran down on the real-time thriller "24," fans have been itching for more Jack Bauer.

We want endless hours of counter-terrorism and espionage badassery. We want more "24."

"Breaking Dawn" remains the hot item on Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner's dance cards for the foreseeable future, but it's certainly not the only movie either actor has in development. Pattinson's breaking away from his Edward Cullen image in a big way with director David Cronenberg's upcoming "Cosmopolis," for example, while Lautner's name has been attached to a wide range of projects including "Cancun" and "Stretch Armstrong."

Beginning with Pattinson, the sometime vampire has found himself at the center of rumors that he'd be starring in two upcoming musically-driven projects: an adaptation of the Green Day musical "American Idiot," for one, and a Jeff Buckley biopic for another. Perhaps he was merely playing coy, but Pattinson claimed ignorance regarding both films during this week's "MTV First: 'Breaking Dawn - Part 1'" interview.

"I don't know why," he told MTV News when asked where these rumors came from. "I don't know. Not really. The Jeff Buckley thing, I just love Jeff Buckley's music. 'American Idiot,' I don't know where that came from."

"A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas" is, as expected, a perfect "Harold & Kumar" movie.

Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner are all household names, but they weren't always that way. A little tiny something called "Twilight" changed the game for each of them, elevating them from promising young actors to full-fledged movie stars. Whether you're pinning it on Kristen's allure, Rob's mystique or Taylor's infamous abs, there's no doubt that there's a unique chemistry to the core "Twilight" trio that is absolutely essential to making these films work. And, according to the three of them, the chemistry between them came very quickly.

"I think [our chemistry] was very immediate," Lautner told us during "MTV First: 'Breaking Dawn – Part 1,'" our exclusive 30-minute chat with the "Twilight" cast last night (November 3). "Amongst everyone, it was just a warm and fuzzy feeling."

"Breaking Dawn" won't fully finish the "Twilight" saga until part two arrives in theaters next fall. But even before Kristen Stewart puts Bella Swan behind her, she'll be stepping into another iconic character's shoes — or armor, as it were.

Stewart is the star of "Snow White and the Huntsman," director Rupert Sanders' take on the classic fairy tale about the fairest maiden of them all. But don't call this Snow White a maiden — in Sanders' vision, Stewart's Snow is a sword-wielding, armor-clad warrior training under the tutelage of the titular huntsman, played by "Thor" star Chris Hemsworth. Those involved with "Huntsman" have already drawn comparisons to "Lord of the Rings," and it's not just because of their similarities in style… if all goes well, "Snow White" could launch a brand new franchise for Stewart.

But having already participated in five "Twilight" films, some of the most hotly watched movies in recent memory, is Stewart really ready for another franchise? We put that question to the star during "MTV First: 'Breaking Dawn – Part 1'" — our exclusive sit-down with "Twilight" stars Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner — and she explained why she's more than happy to continue on with the "Snow White" brand.
