Who's Doing What

Stuff we already know:

1. Guillermo Del Toro is directing The Hobbit 1 and 2.

2. Johnnie To is not directing one of the films in the planned Water Margin trilogy.

3. Song Kang-ho is playing a priest-turned-vampire in Park Chan-wook's upcoming vampire film.

4. Matt Reeves, director of forgettable films before he became director of forgettable but big-budget Cloverfield, is directing The Invisible Woman.

5. There's a Benazir Bhutto biopic in the works, as well as a George Dubya Bush one by Oliver Stone.

6. Shu Qi is going to be a jury member at the Berlin festival this year.

7. Bong Joon-ho is returning to the murder thriller with Mother.

8. Johnnie To is right now hard at work making PTU 2.

Stuff we're still not sure of:

We heard that Terry Gilliam's The Imaginarium Of Dr Parnassus might be shelved after the death of Heath Ledger. Then we heard Johnny Depp will be taking over the role for the Vancouver shoot, because the character goes through a magic mirror and can be transformed physically. Now we hear that perhaps they're opting for CGI instead. So who's doing what?
