James Gunn has been hard at work for quite some time on his new film entitles “SUPER”. It is in the vein of the year’s movie “Kick-Ass”. The film has a stellar cast including: Rainn Wilson (The Office) and Ellen Page (Juno) as the main characters with Liv Tyler, Kevin Bacon, Michael “The Rook” Rooker, Nathan Fillon (Firefly) and Linda Cardellini (Freaks and Geeks).
IMDB’s plot synopsis for this movie reads “After his wife falls under the influence of a drug dealer, an everyday guy transforms himself into Crimson Bolt, a superhero with the best intentions, though he lacks for heroic skills.”
Now James Gunn is no stranger to the super hero genre. He made a little film several years back which I think is one of the funniest movies out there. It is called “The Specials” and is about the 6th or 7th best super hero team in the world. It has an all-star cast as well with Thomas Hayden Church (Sideways & Spider-man 3) and Rob Lowe to name a few. Gunn went on to write the revamp of Dawn of the Dead and make the ever so popular movie “Slither”.
Super looks to be an amazing film and the reviews from the early screenings are stellar. I am looking forward to this movie. Check out the clip of Rainn Wilson and Ellen Page below.
