Sure Shots: Felicity Jones; Dwayne Johnson; Harrison Ford

* Felicity Jones has been extremely busy since turning heads as half of a long distance relationship in Like Crazy. Since then she's completed the next film from director Drake Doremus, was rumored for a part in Warren Beatty's Howard Hughes biopic, and will star in The Invisible Woman for Ralph Fiennes. That's a lot of big names, but she's not at all done, joining the next project from that chick flick peddler, Nancy Meyers(It's Complicated). Titled The Chelsea, the ensemble dramedy will be set in New York's Chelsea Apartments. That's basically all that we know, except that the script comes from Meyers' daughter, Hallie Meyers-Shyer.

* Good lord, man! Is Dwayne Johnson trying out to be the new Jeremy Renner? How many movies can one man handle? It's cool that they're a pretty diverse collection of flicks, but Johnson is dangerously close to over exposure as it is. Anyway, he's now set to star in Lore, an adaptation of Ashley Wood's 2004 comic book set in a future world full of mythical creatures. The script comes from Cory Goodman and Jeremy Lott, but no director in place just yet. Johnson has Fast Six, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Snitch, Hercules, Pain and Gain, and Ciudad either in the works or due to hit theaters soon. That's just insanity. [THR]

* Harrison Ford, Liam Hemsworth, and Gary Oldman will star in Paranoia, an espionage thriller from director Robert Luketic(Killers). I know, Luketic scares me too, even with a cast as strong as this. Plot details are slim right now, but we know the script by Jason Hall(Spread) will involve two rival telecom giants. Filming will take place this summer in Mumbai and New York. [Deadline]
