Second on the list, it seems the scrumptious Malin Akerman (from Watchmen fame) is set to star in The Bang Bang Club.   Also in the cast are Taylor Kitsch and Ryan Phillippe, says Variety (again).  Akerman will be a photo editor in the titular club which consists of four combat photographers who capture the “final bloody days of white rule in South Africa.”  The movie is based on a memoir by Greg Marinovich and will be directed by documentary filmmaker Steven Silver.

Finally, The Hollywood Reporter reports that Rita Wilson has joined the as-yet-untitled Nancy Meyers project for Universal.  Meryl Streep, Steve Martin, and Alec Baldwin are already attached.
