Kat Dennings Cast In Superhero Dramedy

Nick and Norah' Infinite Playlist star Kat Dennings is in talks to join Peter Stebbings' Defendor. Woody Harrelson plays a regular guy who believes he has a secret superhero identity. Dennings will play a teenage girl who he befriends. Sandra Oh will play his psychiatrist. I imagine that the film will be something like K-Pax meets Unbreakable, but I could be totally wrong. I was so excited when they Hancock went into production (but obviously disappointed with the final production) because I think the film world could use a take on superheroes which steps beyond the standard comic book adaptation. Maybe Defendor might be a step in that direction. Stebbings will make his directorial debut, with production set to begin next month in Toronto.
