· Actor/writer Chris Moynihan (For Your Consideration, Psych) got a greenlight for his pilot 100 Questions for Charlotte Payne, about a (everybody now!)

· Aaron Eckhart and Oscar nominee Richard Jenkins have joined Johnny Depp in Rum Diary, based on Hunter S. Thompson's novel about a "washed-up, hard-drinking journalist (Depp) in 1950s Puerto Rico." Cult-favorite director Bruce Robinson (Withnail and I, How to Get Ahead in Advertising) directs—his first feature since 1992's Jennifer Eight. This is the kind of movie we could really imagine our ex-hippie alcoholic pothead 8th grade math teacher getting into. God we hope he's still alive. [THR]
