The cast of writer-director James Gunn's labor of love Super, currently in production in Louisiana, has been filled out with the addition of 11 more cast members. According to ComingSoon, Nathan Fillion, Linda Cardellini, and nine others join Rainn Wilson, Kevin Bacon, and Liv Tyler in the "super" hero movie. Nine of the 11 additions are actors that Gunn has worked with previously.
These are people I like and admire but with whom I also share common creative goals. It helps imbue Super with an uncommon life, warmth, and energy. Super is an act of love for all of us, and it's wonderful having the people I love the most helping me make it.
Described by Gunn as a "dark, comedic, gritty, very unusual, and grounded" on his personal website, Super tells the story of a regular guy (Wilson) who becomes the costumed hero The Crimson Bolt to win back his wife (Tyler) from a drug dealer (Bacon). Fillion will portray the pop icon who inspires Frank's transformation from "zero" to "hero," while Cardellini will play a potential love interest. Posted 01.19.10 by BrentJS
