• Will Smith is making moves. First news broke that he was in final talks to star in Focus from the directors of Crazy Stupid Love, then After Earth got an earlier release date, and now he may be ready to line up a few more projects. Deadline reports that Smith is hoping that Edward Zwick (Blood Diamond) might direct him in American Can, the true story of a Gulf War veteran who ends up helping a group of seniors stranded in New Orleans in the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. He’s also considering the thriller The Accountant about a government bureaucrat who doubles as an assassin. [Deadline]

 Jason Sudekis and Rose Byrne are set to star in a new romantic comedy alongside Joe Manganiello (True Blood), Olivia Munn (The Newsroom), Blythe Danner (Meet the Parents), and Beau Bridges (The Descendants). In Tumbleweeds, Byrne meets Sudekis when he visits Maine to write about the death of her folk singer husband. Director Sean Mewshaw will be making his feature debut on the project. [Variety]

42 star Chadwick Boseman is in talks to join Ivan Reitman’s ensemble comedy Draft Day. He’ll play an outside linebacker from Louisiana who desperately needs to get picked up by a team. Hopefully Kevin Costner’s general manager and Dennis Leary’s head Cleveland Browns coach will find a place for him in Ohio. [THR]
