Superman Movie News: Julia Ormond in talks for 'Man of Steel' as Lara

According to Deadline, Emmy Award winner Julia Ormond (Temple Grandin, First Knight, Sabrina, Legends of The Fall) is currently in talks for the role of Lara or Lara-El (Superman's Kryptonian mother) for the up-coming  Man of Steel film starring  as Clark Kent/Superman as Lois Lane as Martha Kent as Jonathan Kent, and Michael Shannon as General Zod. If Ormond gets the part, she will play opposite Russell Crowe (who was in talks to star as Jor-El in the previous post).

Here's part of the article (via Deadline)...
EXCLUSIVE: Warner Bros and Zack Snyder are in talks with Julia Ormond to play Superman's Kryptonian mother, Lara Lor-Van, in Man of Steel. I expect the deal to make shortly. Russell Crowe has been offered the role of  Jor-El, the father of Superman (Henry Cavill). Kevin Costner and Diane Lane were previously set to play Clark Kent's Earthbound parents. This comes after Ormond completed the role of Vivian Leigh in the Simon Curtis-directed My Week With Marilyn, which stars Michelle Williams, Emma Watson, Dominic Cooper and Kenneth Branagh. Ormond's repped by Gersh and Artists Independent.
