Rainn Wilson, Ellen Page and Liv Tyler will star in Super, a comedy aimed at the superhero genre written by James Gunn who will also direct.

According to Variety, Wilson plays an average guy who takes on the pseudo-superhero alter ego of the Crimson Bolt, after watching his wife (Tyler) fall under the spell of a charming drug dealer. Lacking super powers, he compensates by swinging a trusty wrench.

Gunn scripted Dawn Of The Dead and two Scooby Doo films, and made his feature directing debut with the 2006 comic horror film Slither.

Production begins December.
