"I always say that if Keanu Reeves and Heath Ledger had a love child, it would be Joe," Frank says, chuckling, about his leading man, Gordon-Levitt. "He has a piece of each of them in a real interesting way. There are gestures he does sometimes that are so Keanu!"
So, Keanu. I mean, Joe? Caught on the phone earlier in the day, Gordon-Levitt talks about the research he did for The Lookout…

Shia LaBeouf, who co-starred in the comic-inspired film Constantine, told SCI FI Wire he was surprised over reports that Warner Brothers is in talks with stars Keanu Reeves and Rachel Weisz for a follow-up, Constantine 2. Responding to reports that The Hollywood Reporter talked to Reeves, LaBeouf said, "Wow, I didn’t think he would jump back on. Keanu went through a lot of s–t with that movie."
The dark, brooding film, based on the Vertigo comic series Hellblazer, grossed about $76 million, the BoxOfficeMojo.com Web site reported. The modest success left the door open for a sequel.
But is the report just a rumor? "I don’t know," LaBeouf said with a laugh in an interview at a preview for his upcoming animated film, Surf’s Up. "I’ve not heard anything, so maybe it’s not [happening]." —Mike Szymanski

* Kinky Boots 3/19 – After his father’s sudden death leaves him in charge
of a struggling shoe factory, a man (Joel Edgerton) finds an unlikely
business ally in a flamboyant drag queen cabaret singer (Chiwetel

and safeguard the jobs of the local community.
* Mirrormask 3/20 – Helena (Stephanie Leonidas), a 15-year-old girl in a
family of circus entertainers, often wishes that she could run away
from the circus and join real life. Blaming herself for her mother’s
illness, Helena falls into a dream, where she’s in a strange world with
two warring queens (no, there’s no theme here), bizarre creatures and
masked inhabitants. Order can only be restored by the mystical
Mirrormask and it’s up to Helena to find it. The film co-stars Gina
McKee and Stephen Fry.
* The Child (L’Enfant) 3/21 – Bruno and Sonia (Jeremie Renier and Deborah
Francois) are a young, immature couple, who find themselves strapped
down with a newborn son. Bruno, a petty thief, with no interest in
work and no direction in life, decides to sell the baby. Is there any
chance of redemption for Bruno?
* The Memory of a Killer (De Zaak Alzheimer) 3/22 – When a key civil
servant is murdered, the Antwerp police force puts its top crime
investigators on the case (Koen De Bouw and Werner De Smedt). The trail
leads to retired assassin Angelo (Jan Decleir). Showing symptoms of
Alzheimer’s, Angelo finds it increasingly difficult to carry out
assignments, and when he realizes he’s being used in a political power
game, he decides to bite the hand that feeds him.
* Thumbsucker 3/23 – A Minnesota teenager named Justin (Lou Taylor Pucci)
throws himself and everyone around him into chaos when he attempts to
break free from his abnormal addiction to his thumb. The film co-stars
