Russell will play Mrs. Marko, the wife of Flint Marko, aka the Sandman (Thomas Haden Church). Plot details from Alvin Sargent’s screenplay are scarce, though the trade says it is known that the villainous couple has a daughter.
Sam Raimi is directing the movie, and he co-wrote the story with his brother, Ivan Raimi. Shooting started this month for a May 4, 2007 release.
