Warner Brothers and Legendary Pictures announced Wednesday that Oscar-nominated actress Diane Lane will play Martha Kent (better known as Clark Kent's adopted mother) in the new Superman movie.
Lane is best known for her performance as a cheating wife in 2002's "Unfaithful." She recently appeared in the family horse racing drama "Secretariat."
Charles Roven, Emma Thomas, Christopher Nolan and Deborah Snyder are the producers of the film. The screenplay is being written by David S. Goyer based on a story by Goyer and Nolan. Thomas Tull and Lloyd Phillips are serving as executive producers.
The Superman reboot represents a do-over of sorts, after 2006's "Superman Returns" grossed a disappointing $391 million on a $200 million budget. It hits theaters on December 2012.
