Warner Bros has announced that production on the Hilary Swank thriller The Reaping has resumed in Hurricane Katrina-struck Louisiana. Director Stephen Hopkins said: "On behalf of our cast and crew, we are pleased to be able to complete our filming in Louisiana and to be part of the region's recovery effort." The hopeful sign comes after fears had been expressed that the state's efforts to encourage film production could be wrecked by the natural disaster.

Guardian columnist Jon Ronson's bestselling book, Them, which describes his "adventures with extremists", is set for a big-screen adaptation. Ronson's droll, non-fictional search for the secret rulers of the world is set to be dramatised by School of Rock writer Mike White. Universal have acquired the rights and Shaun of the Dead's Edgar Wright is tipped to direct.

Catherine Zeta-Jones has signed up to play an obsessive celebrity chef whose well-ordered life is upset when she becomes guardian to her young niece. Mostly Martha (nothing to do with disgraced gourmet-guru Martha Stewart) is a remake of German comedy Bella Martha, and will be directed by Shine's Scott Hicks.
