MTV News spoke with the actor while he was promoting his new film "The Woman in Black," which would lead into a small break from work for Radcliffe. "It would hopefully be that I would definitely have three weeks off in February," he said. "And then shortly after that I would be hopefully making a film again."

Russell Crowe

Russell Crowe has been at the front of some of today's most intriguing casting rumors. A chain reaction of reports set off by a Deadline post places Crowe on the shortlist for two high-profile projects.

Wednesday night (February 1), Deadline's Mike Fleming reported that he heard that Darren Aronofsky has his top choices picked for his biblical epic, "Noah." According to Fleming, Aronofsky wants Russell Crowe for the title role and Liam Neeson for a different character.

The "Black Swan" director's first choice, Christian Bale, had to drop out due to a busy scheduling conflicts, and Crowe's credentials certainly qualify him as a suitable replacement.

Sarah Jessica Parker Lovelace

We're told that paparazzi photos from the set of "Lovelace" show the recently-cast Sarah Jessica Parker in the role of women's lib leader Gloria Steinem. The pictures are surprising considering the woman in the photo looks nothing like Sarah Jessica Parker.

The photo from the set shows a 70s-ified Parker, large hair and all. The blonde hair looks oddly like a wig, and the actress' eyes look pulled back. It would have taken a moment to peg the person in the picture as Parker, if it had not been advertised as such.

Ladies and gentlemen, it was no fluke.

When the first trailer for "G.I. Joe: Retaliaton" hit the web, I felt deceived by the director, Jon M. Chu. He had not told me how badass the sequel to Stephen Sommers' "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra" could possibly be until he released that first trailer. It was quite a shock.

Having eventually recovered, I was much more prepared for the thirty-second Super Bowl ad for the upcoming sequel. I expected ninja sword fights on a vertical rock face. Bruce Willis' terse, machine gun-toting Original Joe wouldn't bring me to tears. Those things could not surprise me.

Then I saw Snake-Eyes' exploding motorcycle.

Carnahan Death Wish

Word came down earlier this week that director Joe Carnahan had already lined up his next project, hot off the success of his most recent, "The Grey." Carnahan is set to direct a remake of the Charles Bronson punk-killing classic "Death Wish."

News of the remake hit fans' ears and the world erupted in a cry of "Liam Neeson for 'Death Wish'!" but the director remained quiet about the project until Tuesday (January 31). Carnahan took to Twitter to give an update on the project and the way he intends on approaching it.

First off, Carnahan clarified exactly what the project is, a book adaptation instead of a film remake. "Guys. I'm doing 'Death Wish.' But this version is a re-imagining of the book and set in present day Los Angeles. The L.A. of 'Collateral,'" he wrote.

Scott McCarthy

The story of Cormac McCarthy's "The Counselor" is quickly becoming one of the most intriguing in Hollywood and one that could result in a truly fantastic film.

Deadline reported last night (January 31) that Ridley Scott is in talks to direct "The Counselor," based on the first feature film script by McCarthy. Scott would make it his next picture after "Prometheus."

For those of you just hearing about this, the Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist shocked everyone—his agents most of all—when he turned in a spec script back in December. The story garnered comparisons both to McCarthy's novel "No Country for Old Men" and the television series "Breaking Bad."

The story follows an attorney in the American Southwest, who thinks he can dip his toe into the drug trade without getting buried too deep. He would be wrong.

The Double Blu-ray

In this exclusive Blu-ray featurette from the upcoming release of "The Double," Topher Grace explains how he's on the side of the audience, in more ways then one.

Grace's character is charged with the difficult task of bringing down a Soviet assassin, who unbeknownst to him is actual his mentor, Paul, played by Richard Gere.

"My character Ben Geary's a lot like the audience. He's new to Paul's situation," Grace says in an interview for the Blu-ray. "He's kind of with the audience in terms of figuring out what's going on. We both are trying to make it something different and more real and unique."

Are you an agoraphobic heiress to a multi-million dollar fortune? Was your elderly neighbor just brutally murdered and replaced by a seemingly well-to-do couple? Does the husband act like an abusive psychopath?

If that's the case, my questions were oddly specific and you are the main character of the new thriller, "Columbus Circle." Also, by no means should you open the door.

We have an exclusive trailer from the upcoming movie starring Selma Blair, Amy Smart, Jason Lee and Giovanni Ribisi.
