EXCLUSIVE: Whether paying homage to Marlon Brando’s cameo in “Superman” or just wanting splashy marquee name, Christopher Nolan had all along been seeking an A-list thesp for Jor-El, Superman’s biological father, since agreeing to godfather the franchise reboot “Man of Steel” for Warner Bros.
He’s got his man, and it’s Russell Crowe.
The mercurial Aussie is in negotiations to take the role in “Man of Steel,” which Zack Snyder is on board to direct. Brit thesp Henry Cavill set to play Superman. Warner Bros. had no comment on Crowe’s casting.
Amy Adams, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane and Michael Shannon have already joined the cast. David Goyer penned the script and developed the story with Nolan who, as is his way, has kept plot details under wraps.
Charles Roven will produce along with Emma Thomas, Nolan and Deborah Snyder.
With production set to start next month, Jor-El was one of the last roles to cast, though they also are looking for a big name to play Superman’s biological mother.
Brando was 54 when he appeared in Richard Donner’s 1978 classic; Crowe is 47. Other names that had gone out for the role included Sean Penn and Clive Owen, Crowe was the final choice.
Crowe is currently filming “The Man With the Iron Fists” for Universal.
He is repped by WME.
Green Lantern needed to be a lot more space focused, with a lot more action scenes, and way less romance on earth moments. I’ll tell you what though, even though I expected more from this movie than what I saw, I did not come out of it thinking it was a horrible movie. It had some really long drawn out scenes between Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, but I still liked watching their characters. The CGI was not amazing, but the creative powers of the Green Lantern ring was shown in its full affect. The main villain was not that menacing to be honest, but at least there was a back story to him. Green Lantern had a lot of flaws, but for a summer movie about a comic book character first written in the 1950′s, it was not the worst thing you could of seen, could of been better though. More space battles darn it!
