Flora Plum: According to Los Angeles Daily News, four years after the plug got pulled on Jodie Foster's Flora Plum directorial project - due to the shoulder injury of then-male lead Russell Crowe - the film's production finally got under way last week. Claire Danes, Ewan McGregor and Meryl Streep star in the 1930s period drama with the circus background.

Meanwhile, Foster shows her single-mindedness tonight on the Biography Channel's new "Famous" series as she talks about her relentless interest in movies. "I've spent so many years going to the movies - six times a week," she says. "That's what I've done from the time I was 5 years old. I ate dinner in movie theaters. That seems to be my No. 1 preoccupation."
