In the works: A black and white doc about shades of grey.

Trailers: There's a teaser for "Run, Fatboy, Run," a film composed of a strange confluence of comedians — "Shaun of the Dead"'s Simon Pegg (he's everywhere!) and Dylan Moran star along with Hank Azaria, off a script from Michael Ian Black directed by David Schwimmer — here. No release date yet. A teaser for "Talk to Me," the new film from "Eve's Bayou" director Kasi Lemmons about D.C. ex-con turned talk show host and civil-rights activist Ralph "Petey" Greene (Don Cheadle) is here. Slated for a July release. And a trailer for Oscar-nominee and possible Best Documentary Feature dark horse  "Iraq in Fragments"  is here. The film's currently in a few theaters and is oozing out around the rest of the country in the next month. Update: One more! For Hou Hsiao Hsien's (♥!) "The Red Balloon," which will almost certainly be at Cannes, here (courtesy of Twitch). Acquired:...

"This film is guaranteed to give you pause whether you're pro-choice or right-to-life."

Acquired: ThinkFilm’s picked up the right to abortion doc "Lake of Fire," from director Tony Kaye of "American History X." The film premiered at the Toronto Film Festival back in September and prompted plenty of raves from the critics, but of course, two-and-a-half-hour black and white  documentaries that contain surgical footage are never the easiest of sells. ThinkFilm plans to take "Lake of Fire" around to festivals before opening it at the Film Forum in New York and platforming out from there. [Via Hollywood Reporter.]

Sony Pictures Classics has picked up the "The Children of Huang Shi," a Chinese-Australian co-production about Japan’s invasion of China in 1937 that stars Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Radha Mitchell, Chow Yun-Fat and Michelle Yeoh. Roger Spottiswoode, of the upcoming "Shake Hands With the Devil" and, less illustriously, 1989′s "Turner & Hooch," directed, and a late 2007 release is planned. [Via Hollywood Reporter.]

Elsewhere: Picturehouse will release a series of films based on the American Girl dolls, which, we seem to recall, were notable for offering a range of matching child-doll outfits, the basis of any good franchise.

"We want to show that Picturehouse can incorporate any genre, any demographic in a really high-quality way," said [Picturehouse president Bob] Berney, who added that the company’s New York offices are located next to an American Girl flagship store. "As an indie, to reach a younger girl audience is a really exciting prospect." [Via Hollywood Reporter.]

Javier Bardem has joined Penélope Cruz in the cast of Woody Allen‘s new film, yet untitled, to be set in Barcelona. [Via Variety.]

Kal Penn shares some details about "Harold & Kumar 2" (hush now, we love it):

"A lot of the same characters from the first one end up coming back. Neil Patrick Harris makes another cameo, Eddie Kaye Thomas and Chris Meloni and Dave Krumholtz are all back in some capacity. Eddie and Dave are playing the same characters, Rosenberg and Goldstein, but Chris Meloni for example, is playing the grand wizard of the KKK." [Via MTV.]

And Sylvain Chomet, the French animator and director of the great "The Triplets of Belleville," discusses his upcoming film "The Illusionist," an animated feature based on an unmade 1956 script from Jacques Tati. The film isn’t due out until 2009. Chomet also discusses bailing on Hollywood:

Chomet gave up adapting a children’s book for Universal under such pressure. “As the budget got bigger, the studio wanted a less dark, more commercial story and it wasn’t what I wanted to make,” he says. Adds [his producer and wife] Sally: “We had barely finished a character sketch and its potential as a plastic toy was being assessed.” [Via Ian Johns at the London Times.]
