Brandon Routh won’t be in the new Zack Snyder-directed Superman, or so we’re told. Which is too bad; after meeting resistance when he first got the role, I think a lot of people have grown used to the idea of Mr. Routh as Superman. Earning good will in Scott Pilgrim didn’t hurt, through the rather dire-looking Dylan Dog might. Regardless, now he’s booked a role in the indie Missing William. He may play opposite real-life wife Courtney Ford, who is in talks for the lead female role.
Mr. Routh will be the childhood sweetheart of a woman who is trying to nurse her husband to health after he’s injured in a fight. A love triangle naturally develops, “with the woman torn between the brain-damaged husband she loves and the hunky former flame who got away.” Kenn Macrae will direct from a script by Daniel McKinnon.
