Kate Bosworth Circles Lois Lane Role

Kate Bosworth The "Superman Returns" cast is coming together. The Hollywood Reporter says Kevin Spacey will play Lex Luthor and Kate Bosworth (Spacey's co-star in "Beyond the Sea") is negotiating to play Lois Lane.

According to the Reporter, Bosworth beat out Claire Danes, Linda Cardellini ("Freaks and Geeks") and Michelle Monaghan ("Boston Public") for the coveted role.

Speaking with Variety, "Superman" director Bryan Singer says his film will cover new ground in the Man of Steel's mythology. "It's a little like 'X-Men,' where the mutants existed when the movie began," Singer says. "It's not an origin story; I didn't want to remake what Richard Donner did so well in the original, and didn't want to tread on the great work they're doing on 'Smallville.' He's already part of the culture; he has left the planet. This is the story of his return."

"Superman Returns" is scheduled for release in June 2006. For more on this project check out our "Superman" spotlight page. -- Mac Slocum
