To get you through the weekend, bits on "Wimbledon", "The Manchurian Candidate", a superbit "Spider-Man", what Victor Salva is doing next and what to expect from the "Resident Evil : Apocalypse" trailer.

  • Jon Favreau has joined the cast of “Wimbledon”. He will portray a sports agent who resurfaces in the life of his client when he learns of his winning streak.

  • Jon Voight will be playing Senator Thomas Jordan, an elder statesman central to a drama surrounding two hero soldiers who return from war unable to remember what truly happened to them, in the remake of “The Manchurian Candidate”.

  • Jason Schwartzman has joined the cast of Steve Martin’s “Shopgirl”. He will star opposite Martin and Claire Danes in the film set to start shooting October 13.

  • Cinescape has a scoop on what to expect with the “Resident Evil : Apocalypse” Trailer here

  • According to a report on Coming Soon, Jonathan Frakes will have a cameo in the “Thunderbirds” movie, which he is directing.

  • Superhero Hype reports that a Superbit version of “Spider-Man” is headed to DVD. Only thing is, it’s only going to be Region 2 at the moment.

  • Victor Salva [“Jeepers Creepers”] will write and direct “The Watch”, which revolves around a team of inexperienced soldiers who are sent to blow up a critical Nazi bridge only to discover that they are being hunted by Abaddon, a spirit of the devil.

  • Michael Pitt, Cherry Jones, Jayne Atkinson, Celia Weston and Brendan Gleeson have joined the ensemble cast of director M. Night Shyamalan’s "The Woods".
