Ayelet Zurer replaces Julia Ormond in the Superman reboot Man of Steel
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Filming on the Superman reboot MAN OF STEEL has been underway for quite some time now, so it seems odd that we’d get a casting change so late in the process. But it seems something went down on the set as former late 90’s film queen Julia Ormond has left the film and has been replaced by Iraeli actress Ayelet Zurer. Ormond was, and Zurer is, set to play Lara Lor-Von, better known as Superman’s birth mother. She’s starring opposite Russell Crowe, who will be playing Superman’s birth father. Zurer has appeared in a handful of American films, including ANGELS AND DEMONS and MUNICH.
Zurer joins a cast that includes Henry Cavill as Supes, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Kevin Costner and Diane Lane as Ma and Pa Kent and Michael Shannon as the villain General Zod. Zack Snyder is directing under the watchful eye of producer Christopher Nolan. MAN OF STEEL hits theaters on June 14th, 2013.
