Links for you: Miley Cyrus as Batgirl?

Director Neil Burger is in talks to write the screenplay adaptation of the classic children's book Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH. This will be the second adaptation for the book after 1982's animated feature The Secret of NIMH, directed by Don Bluth. Have I mentioned that this is a dreadful idea? [ONTD!]

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, the third film based on the fantasy series by C.S. Lewis started principal photography in Australia on Monday. [ComingSoon]

Now for the biggest WTF? news of the week. Rumor has it that Miley Cyrus auditioned for the role of Batgirl (in full batsuit) in case they include this character in the next Batman movie. This can't be true right? Like that Timberlake rumor - damn that turned out to be sort of true. [The Movie Blog]

Another set of films has been added to the Toronto International Film Festival lineup. Included are Drew Barrymore's Whip It, the Coen Brother's A Serious Man, Werner Herzog's Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans, and Michael Moore's Capitalism: A Love Story. [Film Junk]

Taylor Hackford takes over as president of the Directors Guild of America. [In Contention]

Jon Hamm (sigh) has been cast in The Town which Ben Affleck will direct and star in. The film is an adaptation of Chuck Hogan's novel Prince of Thieves. Oh, did I mention Rebecca Hall has also been cast in this? [RopeofSilicon]
