· Another day, another potential project for Jennifer Garner. The increasingly busy actress has agreed to star in The Odd Life of Timothy Green, a drama about a child-prodigy musician from writer-director Peter Hedges. Garner would play the titular boy's mom and Disney has an offer out to Mark Wahlberg for the dad, though he's expected to pass. (Other candidates for the dad include brilliant actor Joaquin Phoenix.) Hey Disney, Jeremy Renner's probably available to shoot this between 2 a.m. and 5 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 23. Just sayin'. [Vulture]

· James Denton (Desperate Housewives), Christina Hendricks and Anthony LaPaglia will voice Superman, Lois Lane and Lex Luthor respectively in All-Star Superman, a new animated film from Warner Bros. The PG-13 tale is aiming for a spring release. With Jon Hamm being rumored for the Man of Steel and Hendricks voicing Lois Lane, we can't be far from Vincent Kartheiser as Jimmy Olsen.

· Nerd icon Bryan Fuller (TV's Wonderfalls and Pushing Daisies) has been hired to write a live-action version of Pinocchio for Warner Bros. Apparently the studio was inspired by the trucks filled with money the creative success of Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland and felt the time was right for another take on legendary puppet.

· Not even Mother Nature can stop The Darkest Hour from filming. The Timur Bekmambetov-produced alien invasion film had its production suspended over the summer because of Russian forest fires, but now it's back on track. Emile Hirsch and Olivia Thirlby co-star. [THR]

· Warner Bros. CEO Barry Meyer announced this week that DC Comics would begin playing a larger part at the studio. Because Batman and Superman don't already take up enough of their time. [THR/Heat Vision]
