Deadline is reporting that Julia Ormond is being cast as Superman’s Kryptonian mother Lara.  She will join the cast of Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Kevin Costner, Russell Crowe, Diane Lane, Michael Shannon and Antje Traue.

Director Zack Snyder is really putting together an impressive cast for this Superman reboot.  It will be interesting to see how things work out.  I for one am hoping this take on Superman is a success.

The film is due to start shooting soon and is scheduled for a December 2012 release.
