London, United Kingdom, April 06, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Cupsogue Pictures announced further casting details today for fan-film "Superman: Requiem." Stacy Sobieski will play Ali Noels, a new character for this Superman movie, who is leading opposite Martin Richardson who was announced as Superman/Clark Kent last Friday.
In the film, Ali Noels is a new reporter for the Daily Planet newspaper who Clark has feelings for, and who helps him when Clark finds himself almost powerless as a result of an evil mastermind and his vicious plans for greed and wealth.
That mastermind has also been confirmed today as Alex Luthor, Lex Luthor’s estranged son, who will be portrayed by Robert Hartley Wainwright.
The film’s director Gene Fallaize said, “We are very pleased with the new additions to our cast. Stacy brings grace and warmth to her character, making Ali endearing as a romantic prospect for Clark, whilst Robert brings fantastic presence to his character, as someone that really is evil enough to find a way to be a real threat to Superman.”
He added, “Whilst this film is set in the ‘Donner-verse,’ we still wanted to create new characters to set it in a new place in the Superman universe too, so that we can benefit from existing back-stories and some pre-established characters, whilst still creating an entirely new story that we hope audiences will enjoy.”
Also released today was a new teaser poster for the film, featuring the first proper look at the costume ahead of the first theatrical poster which will be released next month.
Filming starts next month across the UK ahead of a November 2011 release, and will be available for streaming and free download.
"Superman: Requiem" is produced by Cupsogue Pictures in association with Eagle House Pictures.
