Ellen Page, Rainn Wilson, Liv Tyler Set for Superhero Comedy 


Ellen Page, Rainn Wilson, and Liv Tyler are set to star in "Super," a superhero comedy. James Gunn, the guy who wrote "Dawn of the Dead" and the two "Scooby-Doo" films, and directed the criminally under-seen "Slither" wrote the script and is set to direct.

Production is set for December.

Wilson will play an average guy who takes on a superhero alter ego known as Crimson Bolt after watching his wife (Tyler) fall for a charming drug dealer. His super powers? Swinging a wrench at anyone who comes in his way.

Sounds charming, and the cast is great, but superhero comedies, especially the pseudo-superhero ones, never work! Remember the movie "Mystery Men" starring Ben Stiller, Hank Azaria, Janeane Garofalo, William H. Macy, Paul Reubens, Geoffrey Rush, Lena Olin, Eddie Izzard, and Greg Kinnear? Great cast right? But the film failed to fly critically and commercially.
