A twist he didn't see coming

Three fans of M. Night Shyamalan have launched a website whose aim is to raise enough money to send the embattled "Sixth Sense" director back to film school. Chris Baker, the mastermind behind the idea, told Entertainment Weekly that he came up with the plan last summer, after audiences watching a trailer for "Devil" laughed uproariously at the tagline "from the mind of M. Night Shyamalan." The pals' goal is $150,000 to cover the tuition at NYU. As of midweek, the site had collected $338.28 -- about the cost of one textbook on Hitchcock.

The final reel

Chris Hemsworth ("Thor") has been offered the other title role in "Snow White and the Huntsman" opposite Kristen Stewart. ... Woody Allen will have a role in his next movie, whose working title is "Bop Decameron" -- his first appearance since 2006's "Scoop." ... Johnny Depp will play Nick Charles in a remake of the 1930s classic "The Thin Man" for director Rob Marshall. ... More "Hunger Games" news: Woody Harrelson will play Haymitch Abernathy and Stanley Tucci will be Caesar Flickerman. ... Alec Baldwin has dropped out of "Rock of Ages."
