THE LURE OF CHICAGO: Diane Lane and Michael Shannon Both Returning to Man of Steel Location City
When word reaches you that both Diane Lane and Michael Shannon (Martha Kent and Zod, respectively) are returning to Chicago, where they shot June 2013's Man of Steel, the first concern is that it's for reshoots. In truth, their return to the Windy City has nothing at all to do with Superman. Instead, as reported by the Chicago Tribune, the lure is of a different kind. "Diane Lane and Michael Shannon will both return this fall in the name of theater," offers the paper/site.
"Lane will star in the Goodman Theatre’s production of Sweet Bird of Youth Sept. 14-Oct. 25 and will be on hand for Goodman’s Season Opening Benefit Sept. 24... [Shannon] will co-host A Red Orchid Theatre’s 20th anniversary gala Nov. 12 at Sunda and The Underground. Next year, Shannon, who co-founded the Old Town theater, is scheduled to star in A Red Orchid’s production of Simpatico June 13-July 28."
