Diane Lane - The 46-year-old American actress Diane Lane has revealed that she was locked in a room with the new 'Superman' script and had only three hours to look over the screenplay, reports E! Online. Lane, who will play Clark Kent's mother in the forthcoming movie, says she is sworn to secrecy as to the movie's plot.
Lane, best known for her Oscar nominated performance in 'Unfaithful', said, "I read the script under lock and key. I was locked in a room with the script and was only allowed three hours with it. I nailed it into my memory. I'm really excited". When pushed on details of the film's plot, Diane was reluctant to give too much away, saying, "I'm really not allowed to talk much about it, I think, but it does cover the entire range of years, from infancy on". The movie, titled 'Superman: Man of Steel' features a stellar cast that includes Kevin Costner and Michael Shannon. Amy Adams has landed the coveted role of Superman's love interest 'Lois Lane', while British actor Henry Cavill will portray the crime-fighting superhero himself.
Diane Lane recently completed work on the forthcoming drama movie 'Cinema Verite', starring Tim Robbins and Thomas Dekker. The film follows the story of the first American family to be the subjects of a reality television show.
