Rainn Wilson Turns Super

Rainn Wilson, Ellen Page and Liv Tyler are set to star in Super, a comedy that takes aim at the superhero genre, says Variety.

James Gunn (Slither) wrote and will direct the project.

Wilson, who last worked with Page in Juno, plays an average guy who takes on the pseudo-superhero alter ego of the Crimson Bolt, after watching his wife (Tyler) fall under the spell of a charming drug dealer. Lacking super powers, he compensates by swinging a trusty wrench.

Filming will start in December.
