WHO Miley Cyrus

THE DEAL The 18-year-old actress-singer is working on a comedy with a religious theme, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Details are being kept under wraps, although the plot is said to involve a broken promise to God. Cyrus and her mother, Tish, will produce the film through their company, Hope Town Entertainment. The film adds to an already busy schedule for Miley Cyrus, who is set to star in the action-comedy "So Undercover" (due in October) and "LOL," with Demi Moore and Ashley Greene.

 

WHO Rob Corddry

THE MOVIE "Escape From Planet Earth"

THE DEAL The actor from last year's raunchy comedy "Hot Tub Time Machine" is lending his voice to an animated 3-D family film from The Weinstein Co. The story follows a heroic astronaut (Brendan Fraser) who finds himself relying on his scrawny brother (Corddry) to help foil the plans of an evildoer (James Gandolfini). Sarah Jessica Parker and Jessica Alba also star. The movie is in production and due in theaters next year.

 

THE MOVIE "NEDS"

THE DEAL Released earlier this year in Manhattan theaters, this British drama follows a working-class

teenager growing up on the violent streets of Glasgow in the 1970s; its title is an acronym for Non-Educated Delinquents. The movie is part of "From Britain With Love," an ongoing series of independent films curated by the Film Society of Lincoln Center and copresented by the UK Film Council, which helped produce the Oscar-winning "The King's Speech" before closing earlier this year.

INFO Monday at 5:30 p.m. at the Parrish Art Museum, 25 Job's Lane, Southampton. Tickets are $7. 631-283-2118; parrishart.org.
