September 25, 2011: Ayelet Zurer Replaces Julia Ormond as Lara

Ayelet Zurer Deadline.com is reporting that the role of Lara (Superman's Kryptonian mother) has been recast, with Ayelet Zurer chosen to take on the role in place of Julia Ormond.

    Ayelet Zurer, the Israeli actress who starred in Angels & Demons and who played the wife of Avner (Eric Bana) in Munich, has been set to play the role of Lara Lor-Van, Superman's Kryptonian mother, in Man of Steel. Production is underway on the Warner Bros/Legendary film. That role was originally going to be played by Julia Ormond. I was unable to find out why director Zack Snyder made the last-minute change, but I've confirmed that Zurer will start filming this week.
