It’s Superman meets Trevor Slattery! All right, so it’s not actually a DC/Marvel mash-up (that we would totally watch), it’s really just news that Henry Cavill and Ben Kingsley are leading the cast of new psychological thriller Nomis.
Baywatch’s Alexandra Daddario has also signed on to the film, which writer-director David Raymond is busy preparing to shoot in Canada this month. The Hollywood Reporter’s story doesn’t specify what they’ll be doing in the film, but we do know that the story finds an American police force trapping an online predator, only to discover that the depth of his crimes goes beyond anything they had thought.
“I’m overjoyed by our cast,” says Raymond. “Henry’s got such a strong presence onscreen, but he’s also incredibly smart and has a wicked sense of humor. I think people are going to be blown away by what he’s going to do with this role. Sir Ben is always incredible. I wrote the character for him, so I was quite relieved when he signed on. Alexandra is a raw talent and has an undeniable electricity, which is exactly why I wanted her in this role.”
Cavill has war film Sand Castle arriving later this year and will be back in the cape for Justice League, out 17 November. Kingsley will be seen in Collide and Backstabbing For Beginners, while Daddario’s Baywatch is due 2 June.
