London, United Kingdom, August 04, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Cupsogue Pictures are pleased to announce that actor Jack O’Halloran, best known for his role as evil mute "Non" opposite Marlon Brando and Christopher Reeve in Richard Donner’s "Superman The Movie" and its sequel "Superman II," has joined the cast of "Superman: Requiem" in a voice cameo role as a Shuttle Commander.
“We wanted to have someone that the fans of Richard Donner’s original films could relate to, and Jack was absolutely perfect,” said director Gene Fallaize.
“It just keeps things within the same continuity as the films we grew up watching, because we are a low budget fan-film at the end of the day, and we don’t have the funds or resources to go out and try and create the 'next' vision of Superman, so keeping this film within the realms of what we’ve already seen on screen definitely makes it feel familiar to audiences, whilst being a new chapter in the story of Superman. Jack has been an absolute star and is totally supportive of the film, which is great for the project.”
O’Halloran joins British TV and radio presenter Pat Sharp who also has a cameo role in the film, which is currently in post-production in the UK and due for worldwide online release on November 11, 2011.
Superman: Requiem is a new fan-film production by Cupsogue Pictures that aims to bring the talent and skill of film professionals and loyal Superman fans together for this one of a kind film.
Superman: Requiem was written and directed by Gene Fallaize (Prod. - "The Last Seven," "Airborne"), and produced by Tony Cook and Daniella Pellegrini for Cupsogue Pictures, in association with Eagle House Pictures.
