Black Mass hits theaters in a few weeks, and it promises to be one of the most compelling crime dramas of the year with a potential, long-awaited return to form for Johnny Depp (no silly hats!). Director Scott Cooper has already attracted some very good company for his next project, American Wolf, which will be produced by Leonardo DiCaprio’s Appian Way.

Forget all the superhero news for a moment because this is absolutely the most exciting news of the day. Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese have just closed a deal with Paramount to re-team on a new film project scripted by Billy Ray, best known for his recent screenplays for The Hunger Games and Captain Phillips. The new film is based on Erik Larson’s The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic and Madness at the Fair That Changed America — a very fascinating and very, very dark story.

Ridley Scott’s The Martian doesn’t hit theaters until later this year, but the director is already lining up his next ambitious project: The Cartel, based on the best-selling, and much-buzzed-about book by Don Winslow.

Like last year’s Oscar-winning Birdman, Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu’s latest effort is also rather ambitious. The director has been in production on The Revenant since last September, choosing to shoot the film using only natural light, which made the experience rather difficult for both the cast and crew. Following the release of the very impressive first trailer, Iñárritu and leading man Leonardo DiCaprio are opening up about what we can expect from the upcoming film — and what we shouldn’t expect.

In what is surely the oddest coupling of the day, Leonardo DiCaprio and Michael Bay are joining production forces to make a movie about the Rwandan bicycling team. No, you will not be seeing Leonardo DiCaprio appear in a Michael Bay film (sadly), but you can daydream about their friendship and imagine that out there, somewhere, DiCaprio and Bay are riding on a bicycle built for two.

Clint Eastwood’s been a movie star for the better part of half a century, but coming off the shocking success of American Sniper, the biggest domestic hit of 2014, he’s in a rare position of power, even for him. Suddenly, at age of 84, Eastwood’s a hot Hollywood commodity again. He could do anything he wants! A sequel to In the Line of Fire? Sure, why not. A new Dirty Harry? Absolutely! Star in Magic Mike XXXL? Okay, maybe not that. That would be weird. But just about anything else is up for grabs.

After years of stalling, The Crowded Room is finally moving forward. Leonardo DiCaprio will star in and produce the film about the first man to successfully use multiple personality disorder as a defense during a trial. The actor has had his eye on this project for almost 20 years, and playing someone with multiple personalities holds a certain attraction for someone like DiCaprio, allowing him to show off a range of acting talents over the duration of one film.

Those who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it. This old adage applies everywhere, but it especially applies in Hollywood, where major studios are vying to make a re-imagined “gritty” Robin Hood movie only five years after the previous re-imagined “gritty” Robin Hood movie was a colossal critical and financial failure. That brings us to Robin Hood: Origins (actual title), which brings the number of Robin Hood movies currently in development up to three.
