Russell Crowe to Join ‘Man of Steel’ in Taormina

Italo fest to open with Superman reboot

ROME — Russell Crowe will make the trek to the 59th Taormina Film Festival, which will open with Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot “Man of Steel” unspooling June 15 in the Sicilian town’s 8,000-seat ancient Greek amphitheater.

As previously announced, Snyder and “Steel” protag Henry Cavill, co-star Amy Adams, who plays Lois Lane, and thesp Antje Traue, are all booked to be on hand at the Italo fest, which Warner Bros., and other U.S. studios, are supporting thanks to its congenial summer timing and spectacular setting.

Warner Bros. will open “Steel” June 14 in the U.S. and U.K.; June 19 in France, and June 20 in Italy and Germany, among the pic’s other global outings.

The Taormina fest, which is among Italy’s oldest shindigs, is being reconceived by artistic director Mario Sesti and general manager Tiziana Rocca as a mainstream showcase focused mostly on horror and comedy genres, plus an innovative web-series sidebar, during this edition, which will run June 15-22.
