  • 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.
