  • On the set of Premium Rush, our boy JGL flew through a taxi cab window and gashed his arm. He had to have 31 stitches, and I swear, you’ve never seen a dude with blood running down his arm so giddy. Check out the video. (HitRecordJoe via Anne Thompson)

  • “Rubicon” had the highest-rated premiere ever for an AMC original series (I think there’s only been three, but still), putting up 2 million viewers on Sunday. And nobody changed the channel because either 1) they were hanging around for “Mad Men,” or 2) they fell asleep. I fell into both categories. (Vulture)

  • David O. Russell (Three Kings, Flirting with Disaster) is teaming with with Vince Vaughn to make a movie called Old St. Louis, based on Russell’s own script. It’s about a “traveling salesman who has been an absentee father, and how his life changes when his daughter becomes part of his life.” Vaughn will play the father, and there’s speculation that Chloe Moretz could land the daughter role. (Deadline)

  • Speaking of Moretz, she’s in negotiations to star in The Rut, about a young girl who must learn the tricks of hunting and archery taught to her by her father after he goes missing. It’s based on a Karyn Kusama (Girlfight, Jennifer’s Body) script; Kusama may also direct. (LAT)

  • Josh Hutcherson who got denied the role of the new Peter Parker in Marc Webb’s Spider-man reboot will have to settle for starring opposite Dane Cook as his consolation prize. Ouch. It’s a horror comedy called Detention, about a group of “who must survive their final year of high school. Standing in their way is a slasher-movie killer who has seemingly come to life.” (Variety)

  • Bruce Willis and Sigourney Weaver are “in talks” to star in an upcoming thriller called The Cold Light of Day from JCVD director Mabrouk El Mechri. It’s about a young American (Henry Cavill) whose family is kidnapped on vacation in Spain. The search reveals a government conspiracy. (Deadline)

  • Terrence Howard is the latest name to come aboard “Law & Order: Los Angeles,” joining Skeet Ulrich and Alfred Molina. Why didn’t Dick Wolf just recast the original “L&O” with these guys, instead of creating the exact same show set in a different city? Meanwhile, the post Iron Man fall has been hard for Howard.
