  • Darren Criss continues his post-Glee career on the big screen. The former Hedwig and the Angry Inch star was cast as the lead in Smitten!, a romantic comedy helmed and penned by Barry Morrow, the Oscar-winning writer of Rain Man. The plot details a fashion exec (Criss) who’s kidnapped and held captive in the mountains by the mafia. The film also stars Madalina Ghenea and Angela Molina, and its production begins production Monday in Italy. [The Hollywood Reporter]

Miracles from Heaven is adapted from Christy Beam’s (Garner) memoir about how her daughter (Kylie Rogers) beat a debilitating, deathly illness. Derbez will play a renowned, kind pediatrician. Queen Latifah will also appear. Patricia Riggen directs. [Variety
