Abrams, Avery Re-Team For Superhero Film

Filmmaker Julius Avery (“Son of a Gun”) is in negotiations to re-team with J.J. Abrams and Paramount Pictures for the superhero film “The Heavy” at Bad Robot.

Daniel Casey wrote the script described as a subversive take on the superhero genre. Filming aims to get underway this year.

Australian director Avery helmed the World War II zombie movie “Overlord” which showed off its first footage at CinemaCon last week ahead of an October release.
