**Anchorman 2 will drop in theaters December 20, 2013. I hope someone is there to catch it! Adam McKay directs and Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Steve Carrell, David Koechner, and Christina Applegate return.
**The Raid 2 (aka Berandal) is filming soon and has some new cast members: Julie Estelle as Hammer Girl, Alex Abbad, Marsha Timothy, Mathias Muchus, Tio Pakusadewu, and noted silat master Cecep Arif Rahman.
**Summit Entertainment has picked up Revoc, a pitch from Olaf de Fleur that is a “post-alien invasion thriller.” We’ll keep an eye open to see whatever the heck that is.
**The YA scifi novel Unwind has been optioned for a flick by Constantin Film. Written by Neal Shusterman, it is yet another dystopian future book that takes place after an American civil war about abortion, where kids 13-17 can be harvested for organs if their parents want. The synopsis is filled with all sorts of book specific terms and I would probably never read it, but The Hunger Games made a lot of money, so prepare for dozens of dystopian futures!

**Angeilina Jolie will direct Unbroken, a World War II POW flick about Louis Zamperini, who was an Olympic athlete before becoming a pilot and then a POW in Japan. It’s based on the book Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience and Redemption by Laura Hillenbrand.
