Everyone may be talking about The Ugly Truth and G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra this week but we have taken a look at the studio news circulating this week to look at the projects that we should be looking forward to.

- There may be a Robin Hood movie being filmed at the moment, another collaboration between Russell Crowe and Ridley Scott, but Warner Bros are planning a futuristic spin on the tale.

According to The Hollywood Reporter the new movie will follow a group of thieves who try to bring hope to those living in a dystopian London.

There is no talk of cast at this time but Nicolai Fuglsig will direct the project with Jason Hall on board to pen the script.

Ridley Scott's interpretation of the same story will be released next year.

- Joe Gazzam has been hired to pen the script for the new version of Barbarella.

It's a movie that has been plagued with trouble after Sin City filmmaker Robert Rodriguez left the project and Robert Liketic has taken over the role of director.

There is no release date yet for the film and producer Dino De Laurentiis is currently looking for a studio to back the movie.

- A fourth Mission Impossible movie is well and truly going ahead as J.J. Abrams and his leading man Tom Cruise have brought on two writers to pen the script for the film.

Josh Applebaum and Andre Nemec worked with Abrams on his hit television show Alias and they have been drafted in once again to work on the next mission for Ethan Hunt.

The film is already penciled in for a 2011 release.

- Josh Duhamel is currently in talks to star in rom-com Life As We Know It alongside Katherine Heigl.

The Warner Bros movie with be directed by Greg Berlanti, producer of Eli Stone, and follows two single adults who find their world turned on it's head when mutual friends die naming them carers for their daughter.

- More casting news an Liam Neeson looks almost set to star in Unknown White Male, based on the Didier Van Cauwelaert novel.

The movie will be directed by Jaume Collet-Serra and produced by Joel Silver and Leonard Goldberg.

The movie follows Neeson, a doctor who goes to Berlin for a conference where he is involved in an accident. When he finally awakes from a coma he discovers that he is no longer recognised by his wife and someone has assumed his identity.

Most recently the actor has juggled a string of various roles including action film Taken and Five Minutes of Heaven for the BBC alongside James Nesbitt.

He also has plenty of work in the pipeline including Clash of the Titans, Lincoln and The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.
