Woody Harrelson has signed on to star in the upcoming movie Defendor, alongside Sandra Oh and Kat Dennings. Written by Peter Stebbings, who also is making his directorial debut, the film is about a regular guy (Harrelson) who believes he has a secret superhero identity. Dennings will play a teenager he befriends, while Oh is cast as his psychiatrist. Sounds hilarious!
Defendor is being produced by Darius Films' principal Nicholas Tabarrok, who was recently named one of Variety's Top Producers to Watch.?
He says, "It's an incredible cast for an indie. We pretty much cover the gamut - from Kat the most in-demand, up and coming young star to Woody, one of the best actors of his own generation to Sandra a superb actress from the hottest show on TV. We assembled a fantastic group of talent".
The movie starts shooting in November in Toronto .
