Julia Roberts is no stranger to Joe Roth’s Revolution Studios. Already pegged to star in Revolution's "Project 3" and "American Sweethearts," Roberts might apparently also star in the studio’s upcoming "Perfect Strangers," Daily Variety reports.

The script will be written by Jon Bokenkamp, whose credits include "Blair Witch 2: Book of Shadows."

'FIRE' IT UP: "American Psycho" star Christian Bale is in talks to star in "Reign of Fire," an apocalyptic tale about an England overrun by fire-breathing dragons, The Hollywood Reporter says. Bale will play the leader of the surviving earthlings.

SPIDEY SINGS A NEW TUNE: Don't expect that catchy TV theme song for the "Spider-Man" flick. Cinescape.com reports today that Danny Elfman, the composer who also gave the "Batman" franchise a new sound, will score the new Sam Raimi adaptation.

'FEAR' NOT: "Field of Dreams" director Phil Alden Robinson is set to helm "The Sum of All Fears," an adaptation of the 1992 Tom Clancy novel, Variety says. The project will star Ben Affleck as CIA analyst Jack Ryan.
