Lucasfilm opens an animation facility in Singapore:

“I’ve been a fan of Asian animation and illustration all my life,” George Lucas said. “Asian cinema has had a particularly big impact on a lot of my work. When we began thinking about developing new ways to explore the craft of animation, it seemed a natural step to combine the two. By having a base in Singapore, we can create a new style of animation that will blend East and West and offer something not seen before.”

Keira Knightley, Bounty Hunter!

Keira Knightley is set to star in Domino, scripted by Richard Kelly of Donnie Darko.

The summary, from Hollywood Reporter:

The real-life story centers on Domino Harvey, the daughter of actor Laurence Harvey, who starred in the original version of “The Manchurian Candidate.” Domino Harvey ditched a career as a Ford model to become a bounty hunter. The project has long been gestating at Scott Free, but it heated up when Scott took to Kelly’s script, which incorporates flashbacks, flash-forwards, and characters from “Beverly Hills, 90210.”
