Why "Twilight" Producers Think "Breaking Dawn" Could Begin Shooting This Fall 

Many twihards have been wondering when the fourth installment of the super-popular "Twilight" franchise will go on production. Well, apparently, scriptwriter Melissa Rosenberg (who wrote all the "Twilight" films) is currently busy adapting "Breaking Dawn" and producers believe the film could being shooting this fall.

But there are two bigger questions -- first, will the fourth film be divided into two parts ala "Harry Potter" and second, how will the character Renesmee be portrayed?

For die-hard "Twilight" book lovers, they all know that Renesmee is the half-human/half-vampire daughter of Edward (Robert Pattinson) and Bella (Kristen Stewart) who grows super-quick than the average human kid.

Wyck Godfrey, one of the producers of the "Twilight" films said the answer to the Renesmee dilemma lies in "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button."

Daniel Craig to Replace Robert Downey Jr. in "Cowboys & Aliens?" 

Robert Downey Jr. bowed out of the sci-fi western film "Cowboys & Aliens" citing scheduling conflicts. He was set to star as the gunslinger Zeke Jackson for his "Iron Man" director Jon Favreau but the actor is just busy, busy, busy.

So Daniel Craig is stepping in, although reps for the James Bond actor said it was too early to confirm.

Based on the 2006 graphic novel, "Cowboys & Aliens" is about extraterrestrials who land in Arizona in the mid-19th century. Now, a group of cowboys and Apache Indians must bond together to fight these out-of-this world creatures.

The film written by "Star Trek" vets Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman and Damon Lindelof is being produced by DreamWorks which is planning to release the movie in summer 2011.

Who Will Star as the Beatles in "Yellow Submarine" Remake? 

Dean Lennox Kelly, Adam Campbell, Peter Serafinowicz, and Cary Elwes will be living in a "Yellow Submarine" for director Robert Zemeckis. The helmer, who also wrote the script, is going to utilize the 3D performance-capture technology he used for "A Christmas Carol." Zemeckis is remaking the film for Walt Disney Pictures.

From left to right -- Kelly will be playing John Lennon, Campbell will be Ringo Starr, Serafinowicz will be portraying Paul McCartney, and Elwes will be George Harrison.

The psychedelic 1968 animated flick was based on the music by the Beatles and told the story of Old Fred who meets up with the quartet and travels in a yellow submarine to Pepperland. The big bad? The Blue Meanies -- I'm wondering who will play them?

The Hollywood Reporter tells us, "The Beatles tribute band the Fab Four will be motion-captured as the ensemble for the musical performance sequences though -- since actual Beatles music will be utilized (licensed from Sony/ATV and EMI-Capitol Records) -- they won't actually be performing the 16 songs used in the movie."

For now, let's relive the glory days of "Yellow Submarine" by watching the super-funky original trailer:
