Inception-- One of the summer's most mysterious movies, "Inception," is now a little bit less mysterious thanks to director Christopher Nolan's willingness to speak out about the project. The article is filled with spoilers so read at your own risk, but here's a nice teaser — the film is described as "Hollywood's first existential heist movie." [The Los Angeles Times]

-- A new "National Treasure" sequel is coming courtesy of "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time" and "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" co-writers Carlo Bernard and Doug Miro. Producer Jerry Bruckheimer and "Sorcerer's Apprentice" director Jon Turteltaub are involved, and series leads Nicolas Cage, Justin Bartha and Jon Voight are expected to return, though not confirmed. [Coming Soon]

-- National Enquirer columnist Mike Walker appeared on the Howard Stern Show last week and revealed that disagreements between Bill Murray and the rest of the "Ghostbusters 3" team are preventing the film from going forward. Apparently, Dan Aykroyd called Murray to tell him to "stop acting like a jerk." If this news is true, it would follow that the malicious river of slime is flowing once more... [Bloody Disgusting]

-- The first trailer for "Resident Evil: Afterlife," the fourth installment in the video game movie franchise and the first 3-D film in the series, is out and about on the World Wide Web. The trailer doesn't show any footage of Wentworth Miller as Chris Redfield, which is disappointing, but it otherwise seems like a pretty fun action flick. [Trailer Addict]

-- Anna Friel is joining Bradley Cooper and Robert DeNiro in "The Dark Fields," playing the ex-wife of Cooper's character. In other field news, Jason Clark has joined "The Fields" opposite Sam Worthington and Jeffrey Dean Morgan. [THR & Variety]

-- Jessica Biel has ties to the mob by way of "Mob Girl," a new movie based on the true story of Arlyne Brickman, a mafia mistress that infiltrated the organization and put several mobsters in prison. Biel is set to star as Brickman and produce the film as well. [Pajiba]

-- Whether or not Brad Bird lands the director's job for "Mission: Impossible 4," the filmmaker has at least one supporter in his corner — "M:I 4" screenwriter Josh Applebaum, who said that Bird's involvement "would be the most incredible thing ever." [411 Mania]

-- Would you be interested in a project along the lines of "Lost," except instead of a mysterious island, you would be thrust into a mysterious forest? Let that idea percolate for a little while, as director Jack Heller has signed on for "Enter Nowhere," a movie that is described as "having shades of 'Lost'" and is set in a supernatural forest. [THR]

-- From writing a screenplay based on a novel to directing a movie based on his own screenplay, writer Geoffrey Fletcher of "Precious: Based on the Novel 'Push' By Sapphire" will direct "Violet and Daisy." Carey Mulligan of "An Education" and Saoirse Ronan of "The Lovely Bones" are attached to star. [Showbiz 411]
